Wonder if there's anything better than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 around this price range.

Think I'm right in saying that Steve's review was a dislike for the off-centre tripod mounting, not interested in movies just a good all rounder for general purpose use.

Be glad to have your opinions - thanks

Davy

Davy-

The S-600, although priced at the entry level camera price,has neither received great reviews not caused much user excitment. I have watched it closely because I like high ISO capable cameras.

Thanks mtclimber for your reply, gee whizz sure would make life easier oif there was only two or three to choose from, now you have me thinking should or shouldn't I.

Maybe under these circumstances better to hang on a while and do a bit more looking and researching, to be honest I only looked at Steves comments on it.

Not interested in movie clips nor want one for any specific task - just a general purpose one with a respectable performance for the price.

Cheers, thanks again.

Davy

Davy-

The only other camera that I can presently think of that falls into this category is the Olympus Stylus 600. It is smaller and more pocketable than the Sony S-600, but like the S-600 the Olympus uses XD cards which are not exactly mainstream.
