Thanks for relying FiveO. But not in the other types, just the compacts?

Jo-

My photo was taken without flash indoors. So you can see the SX-120 is both capable and gives you some high ISO capability while also providing 10X optical zoom. So this would give you a camera that you could easily tuck into your purse.

The built-in flash unit on the SX-120 has good light output, insuring you of good indoor photos as well. This time I have attached a flash photo taken in the same local, and you can see the flash reflected off the camera boxes behind me.

Don't hold out for the perfect camera or you'll be without a camera for life.

Anyway, the sensor and the lens are 2 of the main factors here for and you are limited on one or both in pocketable cameras (typically both). Now the ladies (and cross-dressers) are lucky enough to have the option of a purse where you can fit something a little bigger.

sandeepsaman,

Well the W360 is a nice cam but she would have to give up the low light requirement again.

Arghhhh, choices choices haha

Sandeepsaman, lovely picture, fab colours, I like that, thanks for posting. Would it be too cheeky for you to take one in low light for me, no worries if you cant :-)

I agree Sarah Joyce, it is really good considering there is not flash, the one with the flash seems more colourful, is that normal ?

FiveO, alas I did not dream of the winning camera lol and I beginning to see why it's looking like my perfect camera does not exist. So I have to decide what I am willing to compromise on.

Compromise, did I say that ? Wow, thats a first ;-)

Jo-

Yes, the photo of me with the flash is a bit more colorful. The flash adds light and the result is a bit more contrast (think of this as "pop") in the photo. I also have a different top on and that might affect the evaluation of "colorful."

Yes it could be.

It is a very good price the SX 120, it seems to be tempting me :-)

Hi, me again.

A TV advert here is flaunting a fancy Canon with what looks like a good zoomer. SX210 IS - any good for me as a compact?

Also, I stumbled across a thread in which many people like the Panasonic FZ 35 or 38. I also found some lovely pictures it takes on Flikr. So I have a few questions to see if it is ok for me.

1, It looks enormous (I see its lightweight)- how does it compare size wise with the Panasonic TZ7 I had before. Its difficult for me to get to a shop to see it for myself.

2. Will it be too advanced for me. Does it have 'automatic/idiot' mode until I can get enrolled on a digi cam course in September.

3. All the pictures I saw were out doors, how does it fair indoors?

All your advice and input is very much appreciated

Jo
:-)
