Hello Folks - been a member for a little while, but this is my first post.
I'm looking for a small digital, either a compact or ultra compact. I definitely want something that will at least fit into a motorcycle jacket or vest pocket. It should be an "all around" usage camera, as it will accompany me on a 6,000 mile round trip of the USA in May of this year.
I've sort of narrowed my choices down, but still have my head spinning! Although some of these are not Canon cameras, I have seen mention of other brands within this board. Also, this site appears to have a lot of active participants that are willing to take a few moments to help someone out, so I thought I'd post here.
I'm looking for opinions to help me decide on 1 of the following:
- CANON S80
- CANON SD550
- SONY T-9
- SONY N-1
- FUJI F10
- CASIO EX-Z750
I'll probably also have a laptop with me (I know - bikers with laptops - what's next?) to download from the camera for storage & to email pics from the road. Ease of downloading would also be a plus. Software included isn't too critical as I use PS Elements - unless PSE doesn't have something that I'd need for the choice made. (These are not as important as taking quality pictures!)
Finally, this camera will supplement a DSLR purchase made later in the year. Anywhere I don't wish, or want, to take a DSLR is where this camera would go.
I have roughly $400 or so to spend on a camera before buying an extra battery, high capacity cards, etc.
I just previewed this post - I hope it isn't too long! Thanks in advance for helping.
