Hello, I've searched every possible review I found and I have concluded to these two cameras:
I would like to have as clear-sharp images as I can get with the less possible noise.
The 2MP difference does not bother me at all as I am not a big fan of high resolutions and my first thought is to go for the FS3 for its compact size(I already have an ultrazoom bridge and I want something small).
Also if the 60sec shutter speed is not just a commercial trick it would be certainly a +++ as I do astrophotography and my other camera goes only 30sec exposure (I know I should get a dslr).
Knowing the fact that I should not expect much what would you reccomned in this low budget category?
Focus times, shutter lag could be not important if one camera stands out in sharp images or night performance.
