Default c 750 questions

how is this camera? i want a decent digicam for everday, concert, and macro (maybe) use. i can spend in the 400 usd range.

hows it compare to the canon s45? any other recommendations?

i want something with alot of options, add on capabilties, and capable of being used as manually as possible.

does the 750 have a custom white balance? hows the focusing system?

thanks

I am not familiar with the S45. The 750 has a hot shoe for an external flasy, you can purchase a tube adapter to add filters and additional lens. In the manual mode you have WB control.

The ultrazoom cameras do not peform at their peak for indoor shots and the 750 is no exception. The best camera I have seen for low light shots is the Olympus C4040 and C5050. They both have a F1.8 lens great for indoor shots.

I agree (as always) with what Gibson said. As for macro, although these cameras are great in super macro mode (down to 3cm), I prefer using closeup diopters instead...you can get closer without getting close...for the following shot I was 13cm away with the zoom at 300mm (you can't zoom for macro) with a +7 diopter on the camera, http://www.volcano.photobucket.com/a...up/uspenny.jpg
