Thread: Recommendation for High ISO PnS Compact

    Default Recommendation for High ISO PnS Compact

    Hi,

    I am looking for a compact camera with good high ISO capability and full manual exposure control.

    I already have the Fuji F31fd, but it lacks full manual exposure control.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    I thought Fujifilm F31fd has full manual control...

    I quite like the rotating ring feature to allow u to change focal length/aperture/a few other features, makes mi feel like using a dslr, but without viewfinder.

    Nope. It only has 'pseudo-manual'. You can select aperture or shutter speed and exposure compensation, but not full manual. :-(

    Oops, sorry. I clicked on the wrong reply. I was referring to the F31fd, not the S90. I am sure the S90 has full manual. Does anyone know if it supports adaptors for wide or tele add-on lenses?

    Yes S90 has full manual mode, however it does not support adaptors.

    G11 is not exactly what I would call "compact"

    True. But is still smaller than GF1 and EP1.
    If TS wants to go creative with Filters, Wide and Tele converters, G11 is his/her only choice.

    Actually, I need to attach it to a microscope at work to try to catch some images for documentation purposes. That is why it should be able to support attachments.

    For my F31fd, I custom-made a ring and epoxy-ed it to the front of the body, then screwed on an adaptor

    Attachment is OK, but having problems with the exposure. Can't rely on the auto-exposure for my needs.

    You will be my enlightenment if you buy Canon S90 . Because till now, no real consumer feedback and picture yet leh.

    All the F series, LX3, G9/G11, m43.... all talk till cast to the grave already.
