Thread: Canon s90,G11 or 500D ?

  1. #1

    Default Canon s90,G11 or 500D ?

    Hi all, I'm having trouble deciding which to buy since I've heard that the s90 and G11 give credible quality photos which are pretty close to DSLR. Which would you guys recommend?

    I'm looking into food styling photography D:

    Are you going to go far in taking those pictures or just for leisure?

    well, coz if you want to take it for leisure den s90 will be a better choice, it gives u the ability to change settings and the ring function is a new concept with the instead change of settings and functions at a touch, and it will be cheaper den g11 and 500d, go down to suntec and give it a shot, try all three cams and maybe u know wat

    Any idea how much the S90 retails for? My babe wants to buy one... she rather have her own camera than help me carry some extra stuff.

    Probably the main difference between the photos taken by your Ixus 860 and Wendy's S90 is the person behind the camera
    It may not be her at all. I've not seen the photos, but I assume it's generic food photography?
    If the product is stationary and the camera is steady, I don't see why a different model of camera will do better, especially since the ixus is no dinosaur.
    Understand how lighting affects the photo, and setting up your camera appropriately, wield yield better results than chasing the latest camera model.

    save your $$
    Exploring! :)
