choosing comapct camera
Hi all,.

I want to say that this web site is absolutely the number one, better than any magazine or similar site.After this....

I find a huge quantity of information in reviews, but:.

I would like to choose a compact camera, and beyond indispensable information about general quality, I would like to know how to choose that, with regard to following parameters,which makes the difference within friendly usability or not..

- Ability to focus with a week light- speed between shots- quality of lcd monitor.

I bought a panasonic lumix DMC-LS75. I know it is not in the top range, but I really don't feel happy using it. It is really bad focusing and shooting and lcd is even worse..

What's the best I can buy?.

Thanks a lot...

In a nutshell, you're asking what's the best compact camera to buy re:-.

- focus ability with weak light; - speed between shots; - quality of lcd monitor.

Perhaps initially you also need to consider points like budget, size + whether want viewfinder/flash hotshoe/RAW facility etc. This should narrow choice down a bit and then (without knowing what your exact needs are for the 3 specific points you mention) I would think that spending a fair bit of time in a shop testing suitable models re focus ability, speed & lcd quality would be best way forward..

I'm sure there'll be many views as to what the best compact is, even if just based on 3 specifics you mention, and it may be that you're happy to compromise on one specific being a slight minus if other 2 are plus's - if you really like the camera overall..

Personally, I went for the Canon G9 which meets my needs for a compact and performs well in the 3 specific areas you mention - as to whether it's the best - I honestly don't know, but it's certainly up there..

You're the only one who can decide what's best for you..

The camera review sites don't get very excited about the models around the price level of the Pany LS75. So they are not a lot of help. Another approach would be to check the user reviews on the Amazon site. Of course this only works for models that have been on the market for a while. To few users for the models just now coming on the market. One new model (may not be in the stores yet) to see is the Nikon Coolpix L18.

To be safe choose a store with an easy return policy. You may not hit on the right camera the first time..

Among current crop of P&S, it provides the best value. (excellent lens, Raw mode, OVF, Good resolution & processing, well built and good handling).Best Wishes, Ajay

Thanks to all.Canon Powershot G9 seems a really good one to me.I think the best is the suggestion to find a store with an easy re policy...

HUGE price jump from the Panasonic LS75 up to the Canon G9!!! There are plenty of nice cameras at prices in between those. Here is a link to another thread discussing some of these choices -.
