View Full Version : Which one?

My old digital camera broke down. So now I am getting another one. I have narrowed it down to Cannon. I am choosing between the Powershot A75 and A85. I have heard great thing about the A75 but not much on the A85 since it is ne. Should I go with the A75 even though it is 1mp less. I know 1mp does not make a big difference just wondering what all your thoughts are.

My impressions would fall on two descisions:

1. What is the big price difference? Is the savings on the A75 worth it, for example could the money you save on the A75 afford you the possibility of getting a macro lens, some filters, tripod, zoom lens, bigger memory card, etc.

2. What size do you plan on printing from your photos? If you plan on only doing 4x6 or 5x7, the A75 would be fine. If you plan on doing 8x10's or bigger though, maybe the extra 1MP would be worth it.

All else being equal, that's really the only differences I see.
