Camera under $145 - Page 2

post #11 of 24
With a price like this, you'll be buying features, no image quality. They'll all be about the same in that regard.

Ok I've be rethinking this, I'll be making reviews of mostly computer peripherals soon (first one will arrive in Monday) and I thought about this 2 cameras: Canon PowerShot SX130 IS / Samsung WB600 / Fujifilm FinePix S1800
They are about the same price range here.

At that price range, I'd consider the Sony DSC-H55 and Panasonic DMC-ZS5. I prefer these two over the Samsung and Fuji.

Any idea about the Canon? I've read good reviews about it, and can get a decent price on it, but not sure since its a superzoom compact

I feel the Canon is good, hence why I didn't discount it with the others.

At that price, truthfully the most you're going to get is a superzoom compact. The Canon and the Sony + Panasonic I recc'd are about the best you can get for sub $200.

The Canon is 169 € and the Sony 184 € but the Panasonic goes to 200+€

I'll decide on Monday, will go to a local store and see what they say Thanks

Edit2: After reading this: http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Ca.../verdict.shtml
where it compares the 3 cameras we mentioned, I think I will go with the Canon since I can get it cheaper, size does not matter to me, and looking at the real life photos, and iso modes, I like more the images of the Canon, and 2nd the Panasonic one.

You won't get much better image quality out of these than the a495. Some better features though...the HD video, IS, and ultrazoom would be nice to have. I've always liked Canon..Best bang for the buck with Panasonic a close 2nd.

I really wouldn't listen too much to the salesman. Read pro reviews I think is a better way to choose.

I only really compare the noise, CA, and sharpness of photos. Things like color are more in-body image processing than anything. It's how cameras work: Shoot in JPEG and the camera has to convert from RAW to JPEG, adding additional processing steps in between. Many manufacturers like to turn up saturation as a result to give you more color, enticing many more buyers.

I personally don't look at an image beyond noise, CA, and sharpness when comparing cameras/lenses.

I know quality wise the thing won't improve much because the sensor size is the same, but I really want the IS now that I saw the differences, also the aperture size is a bit better and as fair as I know the Canon sx130 is the only one with full Manual mode, I might use it if I know how to do it.
Also I'm going to a very good reputation shop, photography specialised and I always can agree or disagree with them but I always like to hear salesman opinions just to know if they lie or not.

That's what I wanted to mean, my bad, looking at the real world photos of the 3 cameras, the canon does a very good job compared to the other 2, being really close to the panasonic but better in my opinion, also with higher ISO looks like the canon gets photos with less noise.
Also the macro is very good and making pics of computers is always nice to have.

I knew 0 when I started this topic, and now I see photography different already, sensors, aperture sizes, ISO, IS, macro, jesus

Thanks all.
