Cameras

Postby vfong1 » Thu Oct 28, 2010 3:37 pm

I'm thinking of getting a camera. What I'm looking for is sharp pictures, has some DSLR functions, can take good night shots but I don't wish to get a DSLR camera. Any recommendations?

think the Pana LX5 is rather popular. Quite impressed by the LX3 for its low light capability. u can visit clubsnap.com and check the comments on the latest models.

U can get the latest Nikon DSLR D3100. I just bought one for dd, c/w a kit lens, at $800+. It is light n has 1080p video function.

Non DSLR with good manual function, can go for Nikon p7000 or Canon G12. Abt $600+ and $700+.

I get all my cameras from Cathay photo. If you want 2nd hand, try clubsnap market place.
