hi,

i haven't been following on pns or semi pro cameras.

I am planning to get a cam for my gf. She is using a canon ixus 90 but i want to get her something more advance to play with ( but not too bulky).

My sis had a G11 which is good. But I am not sure if there's other models that are better than G11. ( not restricted to brand)

Any recommendation?

Thanks everyone.

If the budget allows maybe you can consider NEX-3 or 5? Its not that bulky depending on what lens you use and gives you similar controls to a DSLR.

well you can consider looking into Panasonic LX3 or the latest LX5.. its consider the in-btw models for PnS/DSLR or look at Sony's NEX series or even Pentax K series..

wait, you want to get the camera for your gf, because she wants to know more about photography? her choice of ixus 90 seems to indicate that she might not know much about manual control.

is she interested in the technical aspect? does she want to photoshop?

if you end up getting her something expensive... and then she use it like P&S and complain to you that the colour not nice, very hard to use, so many features so ley chey...

unless of course.. you buy for her so you can end up using it. :bsmilie:

S90 , S95? anyway if she doesnt have the interest and patience ...
also quite hard to go into photography...

why not ask her what she like
bring her to the shop
compare and inform her whats the difference btw each cam?

haha not all gf like pink lah ...
ESPECIALLY if you get a gf like you know who... :bsmilie: But I agree, some pink shades DO suck! Why not red, or other more imaginative colours... like black? :bsmilie:

Btw, since your sis have G11, why not try to borrow it and let her try? Or at least visit the Canon showroom... then you can get an idea which model would suit her better?

Since she is using a Canon PNS, I would suggest getting her the Canon S95.

HTH.
