Hello.

I want to buy a starter digital camera. My choices are NIKON COOLPIX 3700 or SONY DSC73. What is in your opinion better choice. I need good image quality indoor and 640x480 30fps movies.

Thanks

I would look at how limited in wide angle range the Sony DSC-P73 is. Indoors you can't back up too far in a room so you need a good wide angle range. If you step up to the DSC-P93 for $50 (or less), one of the things you will get is a slightly better range of 38-114mm (vs the 73's range of 39-117mm).

However one advantage of the Sony over the Nikon is that you can add an adaptor ring and lenses or filters. Thus you could actually end up with a better wide angle range than the Nikon (range of 35-105mm).

I have the Nikon 3700 and am having glare problems in the videos when I shoot any really high contrast video (into sun, firework, light bouncing off a window). I believe a polarizing filter would eliminate this problem, but the camera does not come with the option to add filters or lenses.

Also their is a video sound lag problem with the Nikon 3700 without a higher speed card and then there might still be a problem.
