#1: FOAK: Digital Cameras, again

Posted on 2006-07-22 12:52:01 by CaneUKRM

My FIL has =80200 to spend on his first digital camera. He's asked me
to suggest something but to be honest I don't have a fucking clue and
don't want him wasting his money on a POS.

What is the discerning 65 year old Dubliner buying these days?

Canon PowerShot A620
7.1MP

I have one and find it very easy to use, it starts up in about 1second,
takes regular AA batteries, the flip-out screen is very useful and it takes
good quality images.

It's a fairly compact camera and though the buttons are small they are
nicely laid out in a fairly logical manner. The screen is bright with good
contrast so shouldn't be too much of a problem to read.

I bought the missus a Lumix (Panasonic) F27 a couple of weeks ago and it's
bloody amazing.

It's got quite a big lens, unlike a lot of digi cams and I reckon a bigger
lens is better than an ever higher megapixel count.

She took some pics of a flower which looks like it's on fire (red at t'
bottom, yellow at ' top). [1]

Not in macro, just &quot;normal&quot; and even zooming into the pic to the max,
there's no sign of pixelation. Not bad for 240ish quid.


[1]Apparently it's an Kniphofia or &quot;Red hot poker&quot;

I bought the PowerShot A520 for 150 quid recently. It does for me.
