Just curious...a friend of mine want to get one soon.
I picked my Canon S400 up for about that much a few months ago. I like it, but sometimes the pictures come out a little more soft than crisp, which seems to be a trait of the Elph series cameras from what I have been reading.
save a little more and get an F717
I have that same issue with my Elph.
Got my olympus c4000 for around $450, happy with it.
I got a Sony DSC-S85 but I don't know if it's still being sold. Had it less than 6 months, good camera.
Got my sony DSC-P92 5.0MP for 369 shipped on ebay. I love the cam.. best cam ive had so far. although i will be buying the DSC-F828 as soon as it's released
Canon g3's go for like 450 or so now. I was bouncing between that and the G5 for my new camera purchase choice, I ended up with the G5.
my friend's gf bought a canon s50... she seemed to really like it... seemed like a pretty sweet little camera
I can't wait until that camera comes out
Do they have an option to adjust the in camera sharpening? A batch sharpening job would be a simple fix.
I dont have the Canon G3... but it is an AWESOME camera, I hvave seen some results, I have the canon eos 10d but just the body is $1500
Top 10 digicams for under 500 bones.
Since I don't need an uber small cam, and don't want one that's too big, my G2 is perfect for me. G3 would be even better. Size vs. features vs. price, I would buy it again. Then again, it depends on your priorities & needs.
I have the Canon s45. I paid $500 and it included a 256 mb flash card and a few other misc goodies too.
here guy. a review page for "Top 10 Cameras under $500" to help you make your decision.
i went with their Powershot A70, very badass camera for its price. of course i rather would've got a camera in their "Top 10 cameras for over $500" page if i had the money =/
sorry i didnt read, soemone posted the link already =(
I just recently bought a Canon S400. Does your camera make a rattling sound when shaken? So far, 2 s400's i've handled done it. I'm just paranoid.
Does that camera have an orientation sensor? Usually it's the little ball they use for that feature.
If you have $500 to spend, check out the Nikon CoolPix 4300. It should retail around $400, then spend that extra $100 on bigger memory cards and an extra rechargable battery. Great 4mp camera. Best thing to do is figure out what kind of photos you'll be taking, then look for one that's got features to take those kinds of pictures (i.e. Long zoom for sports) then go to the store, play with the cameras and hold them in your hands, see which one you (or your friend) likes the most.
If you spend all $500 on the camera, and that's all you're going to spend, you'll end up with a 16mb or 32MB memory card which won't hold very many pictures at the full rez your new camera is capable of. Just something to think about.
or better yet, get on ebay and get yourself a nikon coolpix 4500.. best camera below 800$ IMHO.
ive owned the top 3....
i would rank them 1. c4000 2. cp3100 3. a70
even though the a70 have manual settings while the cp3100 do now, the pic quality of the a70 was it was way too soft.
the c4000 just owns.
