Well, it’s my birthday next week and Camille is getting me a new compact camera to replace my old Minolta (which is now 5 years old). To tell you the truth, 3.2 megapixels is still great for online photos, but it’s slow, doesn’t give any control over exposure time and the battery really doesn’t last long. So, I’ve been looking around for what to get and here are my choices:
- Samsung NV100HD – Specs look impressive, boasting a 14.7 megapixel sensor a a wide array of features. Some of the reviews suggest that the quality of the photos doesn’t do the camera justice, so not sure about this one.
- Sony Cybershot DSCW120 – I really really like this camera. It has a whole bunch of features I love, but I’m not too fond of Memorysticks to store images on. I’m a bit of an SD man I guess.
I’m a bit torn between the two, but I think the Cybershot is the one that might win in the end.
There’s a new model out too that seems just perfect for me, but it’s a touch more than I wanted to spend. It’s the Sony Cybershot T700 and has some amazing features. It’s ultra-slim, does everything all the other cameras seem to do, has a massive touch screen on the back and even have 4Gb of internal memory. Check out the review here.
I like the fact that it’s super-slim and super-fast and I love all the gadgetry like face recognition and even smile recognition (yup, it won’t take a photo until you smile). The battery life looks amazing and the touch screen on the back just simply superb. As I said though, I was trying to keep it under Â£200, so this might be a touch to pricey. I might just go for it’s smaller brother.
The question is .. which one would YOU go for?
