I am also looking at these two cams IXUS50 and CP5900. In addition I am also looking at the Panasonix FX7 cos of the image stabiliser. Anyone have any experience with it. Please advise.

Cheers

The panasonic pics turn out very grainy... Colours are very reddish. compared to Ixus 50 or nikon 5900, the colours are very unnatural. when you better compare the nikon and canon, avoid judging from the look of the pic on LCD. Canon's LCD dsiplay a very nice pic but it actually looks diff when you download and view on PC. the nikon's display is more WYSIWYG IMHO.

NIKKIE, thanks for your feedback. :thumbsup: On other features, like startup, shutter lag, manual features, scenic mode etc, what do find among these 2 cams ?

I think all cameras can take nice, good / nice color and sharp photos as long as you know how to make fully use of the camera features and understanding photography techniques.

For me, I would prefer camera with manual modes which allow me to control the aperture and shutter speed for creativityl effect.

Thanks

if u don mind me say, save alittle bit more buy the nikon d50.

but in any case, for the cool pix, if u looking for the built closest to a dslr then, all three versions of the 8 megapix cam is ok. for the 5 megapix cam, i would say... 5100 is the cloest to a built of a dslr

for tips.. get a cam which u can upgrade. like a dslr, only need lenses body wise, unless u very particular a d50, d100 or d70s will do.

which is if u r not going into pro photography. avoid fashion cameras like the olympus muji canon ixus and nikon s series.

no offenses, unless u r really looking for a slim compact camera.

now now, go get ur cam !!

buy buy buy!!!

the next thing u know, is a dry box, a flash.. wide angle zoom

lenses cleaner, tripod, filter to protect ur lenses elements... ya..

need help to get the cam do let me know eh??
