Canon a560 V/S Lumix Fx10
Hi! i'm looking to buy a p&s camera that will go with me hopefully in years to come. Here in my country we dont have that many choices, so I discarded other cameras lacking some characteristics, and the choices left are the Canon a560 or Lumix Fx10. Here are the main differences..

Canon a560 @ 140$ Advantages:viewfinder, AA batteries, zoom4x Disadvantages:no estabilizer.


Panasonic lumix fx10 @ 174$ Advantages: compact , estabilizer Disadvantages: 6 megapixels, internal bateries, zoom3x.

Some thoughts:.

-the canon , is much cheaper, but unfortunely it comes without stabilizer, the next one with stabilizar is the 570IS witch costs 200$ soo it's out of my price range. The lumix lz6 would be a fine choice because it has it , but unfortunely it doesnt record audio in the videos so I had to discard it.This is one of the big advantages of the panasonic fx10..

-the viewfinder is a nice addition in the canon, helps taking pictures and saving batteries..

-the canon has 7 megapixels, panasonic 6It may help getting some picture needed with the most definition..

-the panasonic is compact.. it fits in a lot pockets and weights less.. this is a pretty good advantage too...

-I have been told that it really is not that big of a deal if it comes with propietary battery. I always liked more AA batteries , but I found out that I can get a second panasonic battery for 30$ if I ever need to change/get a second one. So maybe this is not much of a disadvantage..

-and finally... dont forget the prize difference. it's 34$.

Thell me what do you think..

The two cameras you've mentioned will take broadly similar photos, but the Canon will do a bit better. However, the Panasonic is smaller, more stylish, has OIS and a better LCD, though as you pointed out, no viewfinder..

If you could save a bit longer and get a Canon A570 or 590IS, you would be getting a better and more useful camera..

Thanks for the answers!.

Unfortunely, i'm already a little out of budget with the fx10. The others you mentioned indeed costs more..

The nikon l15 is $200the 590IS is $250the panasonic lz7 is $220.

The canon 570IS is $ 184 !!!.

This canon looks good, it has all, but the compact size. my doubt is if it's exactly the same as the 560 , only with the IS... or it has more features. I'm gonna check it out ....

I am also looking at the 570IS, as I have an old Canon A70 which is great, but really can't print > 4x6. Just curious if you are still pleased with your choice, and wonder where you purchased-..
