Default !!Update!! Best Camera In My Research

Second update!!!

2 MegaPixel

Casio EX-S2
i didnt know that small camera can take a good quality pictures.
well i know now, this is one of the best small camera, in colour, resolution and everything. but one thing this, this apoints me, if it only can have a optical zoom this will be the best in 2mp.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P51
my favorite camera, but if u want something smaller but the same quality get the 'U20

Canon PowerShot A40
update from the A30 so this is much better than the A30

Kodak CX4230
lets just say kodak wins the colour compition but nothing else

Nikon Coolpix 2500
weeeee, good camera. with the best marco, in every shot this will never fail u

Olympus C-2100UZ
might beat nikon, with the zoom and the other stuff, very sharp picture with this too

3 MegaPixel

Kodak EasyShare DX4330
look another one. still best in everything, like colour. damn somehow kodak r doing better these days.

Nikon Coolpix 3500
a 3mp version of the 2500 but ull find this twice as better, and the marco is so good and the best marco i ever seen. like u can stick the lens on to a subject, and still get good picture

4&5 MegaPixel

Canon PowerShot G3

Kodak EasyShare LS443
better then the 2mp version with a great imporvements

Minolta DiMAGE 7Hi
i think u would know why this is good digicam

Nikon Coolpix 5700
lots of hot pixels in lowlight but everythiong else is good

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F717
as far as i know this it the best camera, everything is the best. and lowlight is good with no hot pixels showing

i hoped i helped u, dont be sad that ur camera is not listed, proply ur camera just sux and u do know it, cuz i tell u the list i given u here r the best,

Interesting that you tried all of these cameras before making your
decision.Which did you buy?
I had a Oly 490Z for a few years now,and I just bought an Oly C5050
after trying a few I was interested in.One that I tried that is on your
list....The G3.... Had not so good pic quality inside.
On the other hand,using this new unit gives great pic inside and out.
But this is for my needs.Everyone has somewhat different needs.
One thing I do know is, it was like going from a moeped to a BMW,and
my 490Z gave good quality pics for a 2 mp point and shoot.There is just
no comparing the two.
Bottom line is... Try the ones your interested in for features and MP.
Never buy anything just on reviews alone.

Look out Steve, ths guy sounds pretty thorough in his research :roll:

BTW, try this User Setting on the Nikon 5700 when dealing with low light shots:

White Balance: Auto or Preset
Metering: Matrix
Continous: Single
Best Shot: Off
Image Adjustment: More Contrast or Normal
Saturation Control: -1 or -2
Lens: Normal (if you have nothing attached
Exposure Options: Off
Focus Options: Single and MF
Image Sharpening: Normal or Auto
Bracketing: Off
Noise Reduction: On
Flash: Depends on subject being captured
ISO: 100 or 200

Play with those settings and your low light / night shots will have very little, if any noise when using the 5700.

Actually, you "missed" the five "best" 1 megapixel class cameras - but I suspect they were not available to you.

The Sony DSC-D700, DSC-D770, DKC-FP3, Canon Pro-70 and the Olympus E-100RS are arguably the "best" of the lot. The Olympus for its incredible 10X optical zoom stabilized lens, ability to shoot full frame (1.5 megapixel resolution) shots at 15 frames per second, unique "pre-capture" to five frame buffer and incredibly versatile electronics.

The Canon Pro-70 had the least wide angle distortion of any digital camera yet - like zero at 28mm - and took incredibly good images.

The Sony series are essentially the same camera with the DSC-D770 being an "upgrade" in manual focus to the DSC-D700, and the DKC-FP3 being a professional black body with firewire support. These Sony professional models can sometimes be found for as little as $500 today - original cost from $1899 to $2700 - and represent the ultimate in imager quality.

Best regards,

well i guess. i acctualy never seen Sony DSC-D700, DSC-D770, DKC-FP3, Canon Pro-70 and the Olympus E-100RS, thats proply why i didnt ad them to my list.

they sound pritty cool with the, ultimate in imager quality, cuz theres no point in buying them cuz they r old and thet cost more, cuz u can get a new camera and has the same features but much much cheaper or somthing, just compare Sony P50 and P51. p50 is about duable the price in some places. but theere they same in some whys like zoom one has 3x one has 2x

I am surprised you got to play with a second hand G3 as they just came out; the one who originally bought it must really have disliked it!!!
I am with you easyray: the 5050 has blown away all my expectations. If you factor in that its the smallest semi pro ( i reefuse to use the stupid marketed term PROSUMER) rangefinder out there, plus the FASTEST lens, it equals or beats all non slrs in its range...

Curious list! I can't imagine the scientific research involved to reach these conclusions. I don't recall many of those cameras being on my wish list (or anyone else that I know). But I have to hand it to you for the original use of the english language.

I'll let Steve do the reviewing when it comes to spending my money.
