View Full Version : Point and shoot?
31-12-2009, 01:21 PM
I was looking for a small point and shoot to keep in my purse. You know for those quick moments when I'm out and about.
I'm going to be totally honest, I'm looking for something in the cheaper range. Any real money I have I want to put into my DSLR.

What about your cell phone? Doesn't the one you just got have a camera on it? :unsure:
The best camera is the one you've got with you! :yes:
Tom (:macwave:... smile! And say "cheese"!)

Phew a camera
Thought you were asking for gun advice :thud:
31-12-2009, 01:40 PM
Oh Tom, my phone may have a camera on it, but it's not a 'camera' to me. ;)
Gun advice? Maybe I'll need that in the next couple of years. :D

I highly recommend any of the Canon SD1000 series cameras...really small and cheap, yet takes some pretty great photos. We carry ours in our pockets sometimes.

I was looking at the Canon SD1200. It looks great.
31-12-2009, 02:14 PM
yep agreed, I dont think you can go far wrong there :yes:
For someone after a DSLR experience in a smaller package though, the panasonic gf1 or olympus ep-1/2 are truly superb but more expensive

ooh ooh I sooooooooooo want a point and shoot thingy too! One that fits in my purse... then when I get to the bank...... ooh and if anyone annoys me like today when out driving..... stupid woman nearly went into the side of my car.... I could have used the point and shoot then if I'd had one.....and that idiot who cut me up, I could have taken out his tyres :D

We actually have three different cameras, with all different levels we take pics with, especially at WDW. Our Canon SD1000, Canon Rebel XT, and the new one the Canon PowerShot SX110. I love the SX110 because it has manual capabilities like the DSLR, without the bulk. It is around $300 though...not cheap, but not expensive either. I like the SD1000 because of the size, but don't freak out if we damage it because it is so cheap to replace.
Either way you go, any small digital camera is pretty good. Stick with the brand you like and you can rarely go wrong.

I've always enjoyed using Fuji's and Canons :)

I just keep looking at that SD1200. It may become my carpe diem.

I like the colours :D
01-01-2010, 02:03 PM
I ordered the green one! I was able to find a deal that offered a 4gb card with it. :D

Ducky... if you are looking at a camera I always google the model name and 'sample images' and it comes up with LOADS that everyday users have taken. Gives a really good representation of what results you can actually achieve with the camera :yes:

oh that's a very good idea josh. Thanks for that tip. I saw a few on Amazon from customers.
01-01-2010, 03:35 PM
woops! didn't realise you'd already posted that you'd bought it when I posted my message about the sample images! What a very nice carpe diem for 2010! :D :hug2:
01-01-2010, 03:44 PM
Still a good tip Josh. I looked up some more.
Most definitely a good carpe diem Josh! I'm sure you will be seeing more photos of Arthur and the snow soon. :D
01-01-2010, 04:44 PM
I want pictures of Arthur IN the snow! lol
01-01-2010, 04:45 PM
He would likely be traumatized. Poor guy, has not really touched snow. :D
05-01-2010, 09:43 PM
Has it arrived yet?!
06-01-2010, 03:19 PM
Nope, this Saturday. The shipping took longer than expected due to the new year.
I am so excited though. It's coming through FedEx.
07-01-2010, 10:50 PM
Let us know when it arrives :)
09-01-2010, 01:35 PM
I received it Thursday night, charged it, and then took it to work yesterday. I snapped some pictures and will post them today. :D It's so tiny!
09-01-2010, 01:49 PM
:D Yay! I first read that as "I snapped it" and I nearly feinted!
09-01-2010, 02:03 PM
:lol: Nope it's still in one piece. I want to take some icicle photos later and then I will post.

FD...just following up on this thread and wondering if you've been pleased with this point and shoot? We're looking for a few to add to our classrooms and this would certainly fit our price range. :) Thanks!
18-06-2010, 09:06 PM
Yes, I do like it a lot. It's small and easy to shoot with. I would buy it again if that helps. :D I keep it in my purse.
18-06-2010, 09:08 PM
That does help! Do you mind if I ask you a few questions?
How's the battery life?
Have you shot in any "low-light" conditions?
18-06-2010, 09:37 PM
Actually I have just used it in the daytime. And since I don't use it all the time, I'm not sure on the battery completely. Sheesh, I'm no help.
