My camera confusion

26 Oct

So it’s time for me to let go of my old camera and buy a new one.
Thanks to snapsort (was able to find this via a Techiebuzz post), I was able to shortlist 4 cameras for under $400 (this is my max limit…)

Since I already have a nice camcorder, I am just looking for a camera to take pictures; the movie recording does’nt matter.

I am not a big camera guru, so I have just listed few basic pros and cons.
Here’s my list

Nikon Coolpix P100
Pros:

  • nice zoom 26x ♥
  • continuous shooting 10 fsp (just a cool thing that might come in handy)

Cons:

  • 10 MP
  • Bit costly around $329

Canon PowerShot SX30 IS
Pros:

  • Awesome zoom 35x ♥
  • Flip out screen (good to take self pictures)
  • 14MP ♥

Cons:

  • continuous shooting only 1.1 fsp 😦
  • Very costly around $399 😦

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5
Pros:

  • continuous shooting 10 fsp
  • Has a GPS (but not sure how much I will use this)
  • Bit cheaper around $299

Cons:

  • 10 MP
  • No flip out screen

Nikon Coolpix S8100
Pros:

  • 12 MP 🙂
  • continuous shooting 10 fsp
  • Bit cheaper around $299

Cons:

  • No flip out screen
  • Not sure how popular this is since it has been launched not long ago

So all you camera pros out there, please comment and help me choose a winner or let me know if there is a more better option out there.
