While SLR Cameras are gaining a lot of fan following these days, the same are still out of budget for many.
For those interested in point and shoot cameras , we discovered few good options.
Following were the basic considerations:
- Lithium battery
- At least 16 MP resolution
- Good user reviews
Below are the suggested models:
Nikon Coolpix S2800 @ 5K to 5.7K – Has good battery life and gives fair quality of pictures. However, please bear in mind that Nikon models are generally considered slow in processing. And so is this.
Canon IXUS IXUS 155 @ 5.5K to 5.8K- Good quality picture even at night. No major issues reported.
Nikon Coolpix S3600 @ 6.3K – Value for money, good battery life, picture quality is average at night. Some flash issues reported.
Sony CyberShot DSCW810 @ 6.3K to 7K – Good quality pictures with superb and fast sensor and flash. No major issues reported.
Samsung has also introduced a couple of models like Samsung ES99 @ 6K and Samsung ST66
@ 6.5K in the market in this range. They have received good reviews to start with but it’s too early for us to comment on the models without trying.
We have not gone into feature details of each model to keep the feedback limited to absolute pros. and cons. Detailed features of the individual models can be seen at the links provided.
Comments/feedback invited as always.
