Recommendations on a digital camera.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
im in the market for a new camera. i have been using a kodak c340 for the longest time which finally when kaput last night. it doesnt need to be a dslr. im fine with a point and shoot style camera 90% of its usage will be at concerts, as im at a show pretty much every month or so. so something that takes really good pictures in low light to dark areas. also something with different scene settings like closeups, and things in motion.

i was looking at a sony cyper-shot H70 yesterday. it has some of the features that im looking for, but cant find any review of it being used in a low light setting. what do you guys think about it. im up for any advice on other brands as well.

thanks.

I was debating on what camera to get as well. I pulled the trigger on a Canon T2i yesterday. So far I love now that I am figuring out how it works but I still have a long way to go. I got the canon because of the image sensor and the full 1080p screen and video shooting as well as being able to install magic lantern down the road should I be brave enough to do it. I was going to get the Nikon D3100 but the screen is not 1080p and your pics do not look that great in it. I am an literally a 2 day old noob to DSLR's and cameras in general so I know my opinion is not worth much. I think any DSLR in the Nikon D3100, 5100 or Canon T1i or T2i will be great. I am not sure about Sony or Kodak but you just need to research them and look at the features.

The screen on your T2i is not 1080p.

This. IIRC, it's a 1040k pixel LCD in 4:3.

It doesnt change the fact that it looks much better. It said it was 1080 and the salesperson told me it was but oh well. My eyes told me the canon was what i wanted.
