Hi,

first i have to say that i am from germany, and so my english is not so good, sorry for that.

But now to my topic.

I'm looking for camera, which i just want to use for partys. So in dark areas. I know that the Fuji F10 is good for this, but i don't like the style.

For me it is important that the camera is small and not so heavy. I like the casio s-100 but i heard that the quality in dark areas is not so good.

The price is not unimportant, too. Not over 250$.

So, does anybody know a camera which is good in dark areas, looks good,is small and not so exspensive.

I would be very happy if you could help me.

Thank you

hemorieder

I don't know how dark your parties are, but I took an Olympus C-5500 to a party last week and was impressed with the results: good, natural skin tones, no blown-out faces even when the flash was close, excellent focus. That's one possibility for you.

i know you do not care for the styling of the F10... but it really is your best bet for a small camera in low-light conditions.. so you may want to reconsider it and just live with the style...

The Fuji Z2 should be released this month. It has the same ISO 1600 ability as the Z!0, but in a more "stylish" footprint. The unfortunate part is that you won't be able to buy one for under $250...what price style?

You might be able to find a good buy on a Z1 when the Z2 is released. Right now the Z1 is going for around $300. Note: the Z1 can only go up to ISO 800, so it won't be quite as good as the Z2 in low light situations...Always a compromise.

If you want cheap and stylish, forget about the dark areas.

Good luck.
