I can't decide between <br><br>Canon PowerShot S70<br>and<br><br><br>Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P150<br>I currently have a Canon A70 and it's a good little camera, but it's a few years old and I'm thinking that with all the improvements they've made in digital cameras, plus I'm vacationing in Japan for 2 weeks in fall, I'd hate to come home from the trip with photos that could have been better.<br><br>I know these don't hold a candle to the great cameras you folks have, but I'd like to know your thoughts on this. <br>Thanks very much.<br><br>
I think you've answered your own question.<br>The web site that you provided links for compared the two cameras and the Canon appears to have come out on top.<br>Steve's Digicams gives a very good endorsement for both cameras.<br>I have a Sony digital camera that I really like because of the Carl Zeiss lens.<br>The only thing I don't like about Sony digital cameras is they use "Memory Sticks."<br>Memory Sticks tend to be quite a bit more expensive than CompactFlash or SD memory cards.<br><br>
How quickly things change.<br><br>While reading the reviews, I saw the Canon G6 mentioned. So, I started reading that review when I saw the Sony DSC V3 mentioned. I read that one too. <br><br>The G6 and V3 look closer to what I'd like to get. From the users reviews, the V3 seems to have consistly positive reviews. Man, this is tough.<br><br>Okay, anyone with a G6 or V3?<br><br>
I still use my Canon Powershot. When I bought it 3.0 was the top of the line consumer. Mine is 2.1, but it's still does the job fine when I just want some snaps. The only negative thing about mine is the battery can't hold a charge very long. I have 2 and always keep one charging.<br><br>
Either the S70 or the G6. It just depends what you want to do with the pics. <br><br>If you're a casual picture taker that never does more than make 4 X 6 prints, I would lean toward the S70. Or, to be honest, the Powershot you already have would be good enough. <br><br>If you're more of a photo hobbyist, that uses Photoshop and wants the most detail and higher resolution, I would go with the G6. <br><br>Aside from Nikon's Pro line, I've seen nothing that changes my opinion that Canon makes the best digital cameras. There are certainly other capable ones, that's just my 2 cents. <br><br>
I go back and forth between the two types. I've only printed 4x6 prints, partly because that's what I can get away with. <br>I'm not a snap-shooter when I can help it. I like to take my time framing the shot, looking for the most interesting angle, and composition. If it's a good enough shot, I'll put it through Photoshop.<br><br>I'm no great photographer, but I try. Link<br><br><br>
Nice shots!<br><br>I have a four-year-old Canon Powershot A20. 2.1 megapixels. Good enough for the web, 4X6's and 8X10's.<br><br>Because I am a casual picture-taker, I have no plans to upgrade. <br><br>
