There is a radical difference in the capabilities of the Canon A-610 and the Fuji S-5200/S-5600. Neith of those cameras have a wide angle lens which is most often used for landscapes. The Canon A-610 has only 4X optical zoom while the Fuji has 10X optical zoom and a low light level shooting capability. Can you share with us why you chose these two cameras?

You might want to take a look at the Nikon 5400 selling for about $250 that does have a very nice wide angle capability and would also be ideal for portraits.

Hy!

Thank's for the suggestion. Answering to your question: I decided to buy or the Canon or the Fuji, because some friends of my said that I should buy Fuji and the other group of friends suggested to buy Canon. I canot decide! There is no Nicon 5400 in stock (in the shop)from where I want to buy.

Offer some other cameras or suggestion.

Thank you

I think you need to be a bit more specific about your requirements not only in terms of theshots you want to take but also size and budget.

The Canon is a (sort of)compact camera while the Fuji is a "superzoom" so you need to think aboutwhat you want to carry around with you.

Do you have to buy a camera from the one shop? There are plenty of online retailers if the choice locally is a bit limited, although admittedly you won't be able to pick the camera up and "play" with it beforehand.

Are you a noviceas far as photography is concerned? Do you want to learn about photography as a serious hobby or just take snapshots?

All these are questions you should ask yourself before narrowing the field in terms of potential cameras.

Hy!

So, I must give some addicional description about, how will I use the camera. As I wrote before, I will use to make photos in nature, I NEED TO MAKEQUALITY PICTURES! which camera makes better pictures? sharp pictures? I's a simple question: which camera is better?



Thanks

barnik-

It is only my personal opinion. I think the Canon A-610 is capable of a better image under normal daylight conditions.
