Good afternoon everyone, for the last two weeks I had so many conversations with people
regarding good digital camera. Christmas is coming up and they can be wonderful gifts.
Here below I’m including some VERY popular and HI Quality camera’s.
There are many other popular camera’s like Nikon D90. But if you are looking for a ”pocket camera” my choice would be the following:
#1 Leica D Lux 4
#2 Canon powershoot G11
#3 Panasonic LX 3
#1 Panasonic GF 1 $899+lenses sold separately
#2 Canon Rebel XTi #1 MOST popular camera hands down. 200 million photos on Flickr alone by Rebels.
#3 Leica D Lux 4 $699 Leica is like Rolls Royce. (When I think of Rebel camera I think of Hyundai popular by it’s
#4 Canon G11 $499 (It’s top of the LINE camera amoung Point and shoot camera’s Quality wise).
#5 Panasonic LX3 with Leica lens $499 (another Hi Quality superb camera with Leica Lens)
#6 Canon S1x $599 (It’s bigger than G11 but it offers FULL 1080P
Hi Def video so no need for HD video camera it’s all in one! HUGE PLUS)
Another huge PLUS 20x optical zoom vs 5x in G11 or LX3
#7 Canon SX20 IS $390 (quality very similar to S1x) (Rated #1 in Amazon)
#7 Canon S5 (older model but superb quality)
#9 Canon SD 990 IS $290 (rated #1 by BH photo and some other site HOWEVER
A) in B&H it’s discontinued B) what concerns me about this camera is so many pixels
15 million pixels on small sensor. It’s NEVER a good idea to put TOO MANY pixels in small
sensor that’s why Canon G11 DOWNSIDE their pixels. G10 Older model had MORE
pixels than NEW camera! and new G11 has much less noise in the dark!
So from my researched I seen that professional photographers compare Canon with Panasonic A LOT because
Panasonic puts Leica lenses and they are Hi End. One’s we go down the list I notice that different sites
promote different camera’ Canon SD780 $250 , Fuji Film, Sony HX1 $499 Nikon Coolpix and others.
