General Purpose P&S
Hi all,.

Im new to these forums but have been looking for a camera for a few days now. Im looking for a P&S that will do do as much as possible. Im going on a trip to BC in the summer, so I'll take alot of landscape shots, and I have 3 dogs that I want to take pics of, as well as alot of aquarium pics..

What I'm looking for is:1) Price less than $3502) Decent size to carry in my pocket, probably no bigger than the Canon A720 IS3) Good macro shooting for my aquarium4) Produce a good quality picture.

I think those are some of the more important factors, price & size, as well as good quality pictures..

I have looked at the Canon G9 and really like it alot, however it is out of my price range. I've looked at all the canon cameras and I'm currently looking at the:.

1) SD 1100, 750 IS2) A 720, 650, 590 IS.

Those are the Canons that are in my price range and look to be good cameras..

Does anyone have any opnions on these cameras or suggestions on any other brands? any input would be greatly appreciated..

From these I would go for A650 with a second option for A720.VictorBucuresti, Romania

I'm impressed with the Canons too. For something REALLY different also take a look at the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300..

From your list I really like the pictures I've seen from the a650...

Comment #3

I've looked in the stores and haven't been able to find all the cameras, but I've looked at the:.

A590 IS - $200A720 IS - $230SD1100 IS - $280SD750 - $200Olympus fe-310 - $150Olympus 790 SW - $230Sony DSC-120W - $200.

In your opnion which of these would you choose or like the best?.

I liek the compact size and look of the SD series and the rechargeable batter, however the SD 750 does not come with the IS and I would like an Image stabalizer. The A series require batteries and almost seem to bulky to deal with, but it may be the best choice. I like Olympus and have owned the stylus 300 and 500, both broke, but took good pictures and I liked them..

Any input or opninons would be great..

I'd go for the a720 or the sd750. Would you consider purchasing over the internet? and Beach Camera are very reputable. I'd get the sd870 over the sd750 if you like that size camera. The 870 has IS, 3" lcd like the 750 and wide angle lens..

The "flat face" form factor of the Olympus 790SW may be an advantage for shooting aquarium pics. Gets the flash tube up against the glass..

I would consider buying online, however I'm in canada and the shipping will most likely run the price up equal to the store markups. I have a prefessional camera shop 10 mins away that I think can order in almost any camera, but I can check on the prices, if they are around $300, thats good..

I seen the Nikon coolpix S210 and noticed there were no reviews on it. It is super compact and has a nice aluminium case on it. I might look more into that one as well, do you know of where I could see pics taken by that camera?..

Comment #7

I'm not sure if the S210 is even in the stores yet. There are plenty of photos taken with the prior version, S200 -.



Comment #8

The S210 is in stores, I was looking at the Metallic Blue model today..

Thanks for the pics of the previous model , I'll take a look at them...
