    Yupyup, affordable, pretty compact, super economical on power... when I was using the a70, my 2100 NiMH batteries lasted me quite a few days of holiday phototaking! It's a really great camera...

    picture quality i find it ok.... its only the bulid of the camera that i don't like...the protuding lens is loose.... hold a v1 with full tele u will know wat i mean... anyway...i haven't tried alot of dc before... but i find that sony dc can handle low light very well... only tried canon n sony so far...hee...

    considering z2 or maybe wait for z3.... but dunno why minolta like to design weird looking DC....zzz

    Hi,

    besides those that you mention... featurewise, A75/80 and S1IS should be about the same. However, A80 is 4 Megapixels and uses a bigger CCD compared to the rest.

    Autofocus and shutter is a bit slow on the Canon models.... (at least that's what i feel......) otherwise... very good camera....

    Sony W1 - no full manual control, 5 mega pixels, fast startup, fast autofocus, minimal shutter lag, nice design(subjective....) not forgetting the 2.5" LCD screen.....

    But seriously... do you have some guideline for your selection??
    like budget?
    weight?
    size?


    just my $0.000002..........

    budget n weight -anything
    size - as long as smaller than canonS1

    was looking at fz10.... like it overall just that i feel it abit huge to carry it around...esp on a holiday... i got a canon v2....like it very much...too bad its only a 2mp....looking for something higher reso and able to take shots in night time.... V2 can't take anything in low light.... even i on the shutter longer time.... i also see black screen.... anyway too many models ard.... read the reviews seems like most of the DC nowdays can handle low light well? perhaps its technology....haahaa... or perhaps a ixus500 will suit my needs?

    thx
