Hey guys, which would be a better camera for low light conditions? without flash?

I'm leaning towards the casio, but it doesn't have image stabilization like the sony. Is that a big deal?

Cheers.

fuji is still the best for low light photography. I haven't had good luck with casio cameras. Stick with Sony or Canon. T10 flash i think is weak (i have a t11). Try to get the T50 because flash is the requirement, not image stabilization.

Thanks for your comment, however the fuji is ruled out because it is too thick for my needs. Also the T50 is a little bit too thick and also out of my price range. So I've narrowed it down to those 2 cameras.

OP specified "without flash"...

With Sony's solid optical image stabilization implementation, the T10 is by far the better choice of the two. It also reportedly has better overall image quality than the Casio.

Thanks.

My only issue with the Sony is the flash. I would sometimes like to take pics with the flash but I've read that it's not very good and sometimes leaves white specks in photos due to the flash being located right next to the lens.

Anyone have any comments?

Have you considered the Fuji Z5fd? It is thinner than the F31fd. Excellent low-light abilities.

No I hadn't considered that camera, I'll look into it.
Does it provide decent macro support?

The Fuji Z series doesn't have nearly the low light capability of the F series. They test out about the same as the Sony T10 and don't have the stabilization.
