Hi!

I am gonna buy a digi cam but i can't decide which to buy? I am going to stay in Austriafor some time and for that reason i need acam which is suitable for takingnature pics.I am thinkin of 4 to 6 megapixels!! Movie recording is importantbut i have a limited budget around 250$

I'd very happy if someone reply me in detail. There are Casio EXILIM EX-Z110 (6 Megapixel) and Canon PowerShot A520 Digitalkamera (4 Megapixel). Which one do you prefer

Thanks for your help!

The Z110 is too new to have any good reviews yet. The Z series have had good lenses and good MPEG4 movies. The Casios have also been pretty quick for shutter and cycle times.

If you can't wait for good reviews I would go with the Canon A520. Other than having a little trouble focusing in low light it is a very competent camera. And it has a 4X zoom compared to 3X on the Z110. Movies aren't as good though. And the Casio will likely have faster shutter and cycle times – the A520 isn't great at either.

You can get a Canon A610 in the US delivered including shipping for $245, but maybe not down under. It is fairly fast and has full manual everything and a good lens.

If that is too pricey in Australia you might want to wait for a good review of the Z110 if that fits your budget.

I agree with slipe. The Canon A610 is an outstanding camera and a great value. That would be my choice for a great all around camera.
