The photo path points to your own computer hard disk: file: ///C:/Data/pictures/camera compare/cuddle_002.jpg

So you can see it, but others can't.

The biggest difference is the white balance setting between the cams. Otherwise they look pretty close to me.

Since you are able to see the subject, it's hard for us (at least Me) to make that decision for you. I would go with the one that you like the best. When I switched from my Sony F717 to the Canon Digital Rebel, it was no contest. It's all based on our owninterpretation of what we like.

Good luck on your choice.

Two valid observations, the obvious white balance difference and the fact you can see the subject, means that only you can tell which photo resembles the scene the best. It would be difficult to make an assessment based on just two images, it would require many images shot under different conditions and using all the various comparable settings available to each camera.

It would also be difficult for members to recommend a camera on the basis of this 'test' and, I feel, rash of you to buy one or the other for the same reason.

Once members know the two cameras in question, then there will be a few more considered opinions as to which you ought to buy.

Quite often, two 'identical' images from two 'identical' cameras can actually look different. I would suggest you have a look at this site and select the two cameras you are considering, to compare images taken under controlled conditions. http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP/COMPS01.HTM

Good luck,

Stevekin.

These were just taken with the cameras, "out of the box." The white balance difference *is* quite noticable.

Agree now, after posting, its not realistic to expect, "which is better," opinions based on this simplistic comparison.

The two cameras are, Olympus C-8080 and Canon Digital Rebel / 300D. I'll bet you can guess which pic is from which camera. The pics were untouched, except resized in Photoshop Elements to 600 wide.

The second one produces a sharper image, just have a look at the pattern of the chair!
