Did you look at either of these but decide to get a different camera?

Thanks for that link. Those pics look really good. I see alot of talk about the ISO. I am not to familar with that. On the E900 do you have to change the ISO alot? I want to be able to point and shoot. This is for my wife and she wants easy to use. She primarily take pics of the kids playing and at holidays.



Thanks

You can leave the ISO on AUTO (default) and forget it.

Good little camera, I am quite pleased with the results, fits in the pocket, so I never leave home without it.

While it is a point and shoot camera, you can also be quite creative with it.

Best of both worlds.

Yes, I use Adobe Elements 4, as well, and quite a fewplugins and other photo editing software. Horses for courses.

Elements 4is about 10 times less in price than Photoshop CS.

Photoshop CS is for professionals with deep pockets.

No. But it was my choice to buy, until I saw the E900.

The 9 Mp an the manual controls clinched it.

How long have you had the E900?

So I can set it to auto and be fine? It will take good pics in this mode?

Few weeks now.

Yes, it is after all designed to be a point and shoot camera with extra controls for those who want it. I can recommend it.Good photos in auto mode, but still better results, if you learn the controls.

Of course, if you really, really want something dead simple, just for the occasional snapshot, then there are much cheaper options. No need to pay for extras you not going to use.
