Pls help Pentax Optio SV or Canon SD300(Ixus 40)?
:confused: I am really stuck trying to decide between the canon 4mp 3x zoom, or the new Pentax 5mp, 5xzoom. I am very tempted by the Pentax as it also has some manual control, and am worried about the canons reports of blurry edges and purple fringing, but I think I am heading towards the Canon because of the amazing size. Do you think I am better off getting a 5mp, for cropping?
I wish the SD300 was available as 5mp, I can't believe making a decision is so hard!
Can anybody help me decide? I really am only looking for a camera to take photos of my baby and family. Speed is definately important to me as I am sick of missing the moment! Although it would be nice to have some manual control to play with.
If I go for the Canon then I wan't to buy it tomorrow when I can get it on sale, so please let me know if you have any thoughts. Or if you own the pentax optio SV.
s5i can't even compete with sd200
The s5i has noisy images. They sadly dont look as good as the sd200 with its 3.2mp. canon simply has the optio s line beat. not too mention how much faster the sd200/300 is, how much better the video mode is, how much nice the screen is and how much more solid the camera feels.
