    Best IQ in non-SLR

    Suppose I don't care about zoom range or megapixels (with 6 as a minimum), which cameras have the best combination of lens and sensor to give the top image quality? What are your two top picks for that?

    Canon S3 or Fuji 6000 would be my pick with the limits of your question.

    Red face Best IQ in non-SLR

    About good or bad light, I admit I try to do images in both kinds, and have a F30 for interiors. But for the purpose of this question, I'd say good light.

    For the person who mentioned the Canon S3 or the Fuji 6000, I think both cameras excel in versatility - that is, zoom range combined with good image quality. But if you exclude versatility, since it is not part of image quality per se, then what?

    BTW, I should mention my own prejudice in asking this question. I am thinking of greatly simplifying my approach to photography, in which I would trade off zoom range, good viewfinders, etc etc etc, in favor of resolution, low distortion, and color accuracy pure and simple. Just the best digital tool, but with no bells and whistles that might justify or excuse a drop in imager quality.

    bobg3590, if ya already have a Fuji F30 and the iq doesn't work for you, then you need to upgrade to a Nikon D40 dslr. Put it in auto and fire away. It isn't very large and doesn't cost much more than the P&S of the day. If you want to stay real simple, the new Canon A lines have about as good production of nice images as anybody in that type of camera.

    Well I've owned the S3 and it does have very good IQ. Is it the best out there? I don't know. Does your budget allow for a jump to a DSLR?
