Default Exilim EX H10 Vs Samsung HZ10(Wb 500) Vs FUji F70EXR

Please I would ask you that question,I need a pocketable camera with 24/28 mm wide angle,that are my choices Casio Vs Samsung Vs.Fuji
I love loose myself on night shots,Casio have only 4" (samsung 16")but I never do night shot with using more than 2 or 3 seconds ..could be a limit?Casio got amazing quality on high iso so could be not a limit anyway..F step are only two for both cameras...but I feel that I could do good shots
I would love some panorama stitch but probably both doesn't have,so any other advices?

glaeken-

Here in the USA, Samsung has always offered cheap cameras with not much performance. The WB500 and the WB550 ( a somewhat later model) were designed to compete with Panasonic TZ-6/ZS1 and the TZ-7/ZS3 cameras The difference between the 2 cameras which were released just 2 month apart is that the WB500 has 10mp and a 2.7 inch LCD screen and the WB550 has 12mp and a 3.0 inch LCD screen. Either camera has video clips and offers a 24mm wide angle position on the lens.

So there really is not much difference between the 2 Samsung cameras and the Casio offering. The Samsung and Casio cameras offer a size advantage over your current Kodak camera, but performance-wise they are similiar to the Kodak.

Default Thanks Sara

In fact I would buy a pocketable camera,my z1012 isnt pocket..I understand the importance to have a great small tool in my pockets when I need

For budget reason I'm heading to Wb550..but Casio is really fascinating me for some shoots...see it on flickr section

Please be aware that the WB550 is prone to a good amount of CA or purple fringing. However the Casio H-10 has a 10 minute limit on it video and shows a lot of noise at ISO setting numerically higher than ISO 200.

The WB-500 has a lot of purple fringing. The Casio H-20 has a 10 minute limit of its HD video. The Fuji F-70EXR is the better, but not by much, choice, but it does not have HD video, and it is a rather complex camera to use due to all of the possible selections.

Have a great day.

Dear Sarah
I had read somewhere that F70 exr has not Manual Controls(the price is good)..I don't know if Casio EX 10 is on the same page
HZ10 Wb500 I feel that could be the right choice..because got manual controls..

SX200 Canon could be also good but is quite expansive..so I'm in a limbo..


Have a great Day!

Glaeken-

Of all the cameras considered the Canon SX-200 or the Canon SX-120 would be much better choices as they do have full manual and automatic controls.

Well, Glaeken-

You had better look at the Panasonic TZ-7 (25mm)/ It would be a much better choice than the Casio or the Samsung.

Have a great day.
