Which camera

Hi Guys

I'm looking at getting a new camera for both reviews and general photography. Now the missus wants a compact instead of our existing digital SLR and I've narrowed my choice down to the follow, which I would appreciate your valuable feedback on if I may:

* CANON DIGITAL IXY1000 / IXUS900 Ti Digital Camera

* SONY CYBERSHOT DSC-T100 8.1MP - T 100

Now I am seriously leaning towards the IXUS, but I may be swayed in the direction of other brands if they can outperform/offer better features.

All feedback appreciated and thanks in advance

PV

I Would Wager the Canon would have better optics (which IMO is of far greater importance than Mpix Value)

Personally Canon

Sony's lenses are Zeiss designed so not exactly poor ...

A quick Google suggests that the Canon is a lot older design & therefore may be up for replacement soon which could mean bargains.

They look like quite different designs though so I suggest that you try to find somewhere that has both so that you can handle them.

Zeiss designed --- like the lenses in the N95/N73 *snickers*

APERTURE SIZE is probably the most important variable concerning Digital Images camera quality

Sony :
  • f3.5(W) - 10.0(T)
Canon:
  • f/2.8 (W) - f/5.5 (T)

(smaller f/ the better/bigger aperture)

and I wouldn't worry about using older designs -- ne1 seen the EOS DSLR range ??? (i think they only increment the MP count of the sensor)

It just means u will get a cheaper cam

Like Canon`s myself, admired other people`s Fujis and always found Sony priced more for the sake of it.

That`s about as untechnical u`r gonna get

i have the IXUS 65, takes really nice pics other than when its dark. It could be photography skills more than the camera though.

Yeah I was looking at the Canon EOS 400D (and may still get one), but the missus has made it painfully clear that she wants a point and shoot camera. I have decided to buy her the Canon IXUS 950IS
