Hi all!

I'm very confused on what to get! I used to have a canon A510 and man I loved it! It was such an awesome camera. But at 3.2 mega pixels it had its limitations.

So now...upgrade time. It was up to me! I would get canon E0S mark 2 in a second, but unfortunately I don't have 7 grand lying around.

I really want high quality photos, yet the price is always on my hand, but I narrowed it down to two

The Fuji e900
or
Canon A620

I'm really a canon man in heart, but that 9.24 mega pixels is making my head turn the other way! Can anyone help me decide or point me in directions of a camera that they might think is better?

Confused! :?

P.S. Im looking to spend 300 - 400 bucks!

Zee-

In all fairness, either camera will serve you very well indeed. Just go with your heart. Those two cameras are that close.

Thanks mtclimber,

Is there a camera - you would recommend? Should i save up a little more and get a more semi advance camera?

I am honestly not attempting to beg off, but each of the Canon A-620 and E-900 cameras have some really strong points in their favor that are unique to that camera. I like them both very much, but tend to favor the Canon A-620.

If you love your A510 you will love the A620 even more. Don't be obsessed by megapixels! The number is much less important than the quality of these pixels!

Thanks Kassandro,

To be honest with you, im really just obsessed with photo quality and options that the camera can take picture with - example: the color filter that A620 has to offer.

So you can understand why the higher the mega pixels the more I think..."Oh could be better quality!?"

That's why im asking for your guy's expert advise?

Zee-

Here is how I would rank the cameras we have discussed based solely on image quality.

1. Fuji E-900 if you shoot low light level photos

2. Canon A-620

3. Fuji F-10/F-11/F-30
