Can someone recommend a point and shoot with good quality and some level of control of features that can be used by college students for projects. I'm looking in the $300-400 price range per camera.

Thanks.

Canon G16. B&H has it for $380. You can go full manual with this, as well as full auto. This includes manual focus. I just took it on a trip to Nashville last weekend with it, and it was great. Low light performance is very good for what it is. While the G16 can go to ISO6400, ISO3200 is better. I've used it for daylight, indoors w/o flash. flash shots, fireworks, concert performance at the Grand Ole Opry, skyline photos. It can also do video. You can set it up to do video on the fly. Take a photo, then take a video if something catches you.

The G16 replaced a G9, as I needed something with lower light performance. This was two years ago. There are lots of point-n-shoot/compact cameras in the G/GX lineup, but I really think the G16 is the bargain. If something happened to my G16, I'd order one again right away.

Hope this helps!

Any camera which has the ability to manually set all of these controls would be good:

  • shutter speed
  • f/stop
  • ISO

Not a Canon but A new Lumix FZ200 goes for under $300. Easy to use and you can set all of the parameters you want or none.
A used Canon bridge camera SX40 or SX30 maybe. But I am not impressed with Canon's menu and options, I find them a bit hard to navigate.



Ain't nothin but a thing.
