Need recommendations for a good compact digital camera


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

So im shopping around at the moment for a good compact digital camera, by 'compact' I just mean something that can easily fit in my pocket. I've had a DSLR for years (which also needs upgrading) which is great but I'd really like to get something a bit more portable for vacations, birthdays, outings, more causal stuff etc. I realise I will probably not be able to get anywhere near DSLR quality by going compact, but i still want to go for as good quality as I can get, preferably something that also works well in low lighting conditions.

I have a couple in mind, such as the Fujifilm Finepix X10/X100 or the Canon PowerShot S100, but was wondering if anyone here has any recommendations?

I don't mind forking out on price (within reason) if it means i'm getting something that will last.

The iPad 2 has a front VGA camera and a rear-facing 720p camera, both capable of still images (but these are only taken at a low quality 0.3 megapixels) and 30fps video. The rear-facing camera has a 5× digital zoom for still images only. Both shoot photo and video in a 4:3 fullscreen aspect ratio, unlike the iPhone 4, which shoots in a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Unlike the iPhone, the iPad does not support tap to focus, but does allow you to tap to set auto exposure.

it has a flash as an included accessory, but you have to attach it for when you need it for party pics or what ever

Camera works very well in low light, theres even a few modes to make it easier to get hand held results in very low light (as seen below) hipster bridge for the win
