Both can be use. And both a good camera from respectable brand.

Things like,

1) Weigh - actually not much since they are small point and shoot.
2) Ergonomic - how it feels in your hand and stuff like that.
3) Menu user interface
4) Budget ( but since you include both of them in your choice, I would assume that you are okay with their cost).

So my advise is... go down to the shop and test them out, pick up one that suits you best (or that you feel best).

Both cameras were designed in a Winter country. Why should Nikon or Sony design something with limited usability in their own home country?

I tried both of them yesterday at IT @ expo. Sony slightly slower in previewing picture and taking picture. It keeps loading for at least 1 sec, while nikon straight away go to the preview picture shortly after i press the button~

Normally, I would turned off the preview... it slow down my cam... I think. Anyway, I would advise you not to get anything from IT shows, they only handed out lots of useless freebies that you can get for a few dollars. Just get from the recommendable shops (all listed in our price guide section).

Actually you need to be careful there. Many salesmen will set a camera they want to sell (for higher margins) to a lower resolution, or use a faster memory card, to make it "look" faster. So double-check the settings, etc, are the same.

But realistically, unless you're traveling to antarctica, both these cameras will work just fine - they are designed in a country that has winter, remember?

Just read the reviews for these 2, then pick the one that you feel more comfy with.

The problem with the Sony is that all it's controls (apart from the shutter and power buttons) are on the touch screen. This makes it twitchy, and less responsive once the screen has moisture. Apart from that, this has been ranked number 2 being bested only by the lumix TS100 (can't be sure - the panasonic shock/water/dust-proof contender) on dpreview. So you might want to consider the lumix as well. Although the AW100 in camo print looks fun. ;p

I think it would be weird for sony to manufacture a camera that works underwater yet boasts a touchscreen that doesn't work well in that condition duncha think?

If that touchscreen is a resistive touchscreen, it will work quite okay, although might suffer with a bit of lag. If it is a capacitative touchscreen then, the sensitivity will be affected.

Or was it the other way round.
