Hi Guys,

After careful reading and acting within my budget, need to make the choice between Nikon Coolpix 4100 199 euro or Cannon A85 at 229 euro, after reading the reviews on Steves review page, finding it hard to opt as 1 has feature the other has not. Help!

Bill

:|I think it comes down to whether you want/need the manual control that the A85 gives you. I have an A85 and I find it a fantastic camera for the price. Great pictures and great control. But if you don't care about the manual control I'd say go for the lowest price. My dad has a Nikon 3700 and it's a great camera. They are offered with quite a discount here in Denmark at the moment - so perhaps that's another option.

One thing I really like about A85 and 4100 is that they use regular AA batteries.

So manual control: A85

Price: 4100 (or the 3700 which is VERY nice too).

Enjoy it whatever you choose

If another post helps you at all -- I would certainly agree with maxjensen. They are both very good cameras, soit comes down to whether or not you value manual control.....

Thanks Guys,

I am going to opt for the one with the manual mode, although i do not really need it, you never know. Both are good cameras and i would be happy with either i guess.
