  • Camera recommendation

    Lots of people on here that are way more experienced than me.
    I have a Fuji FinePix S700 that I really like, but is just too bulky.
    I like hiking and backpacking and enjoy taking nature pictures, but I just haven't found a way to conveniently carry the Fuji.
    For everyday events there is just no way you can stick it in your pocket.

    How does this camera compare to the modern compact cameras?
    Is there anything I can get that would be comparable and more compact?

    Thanks,
    Don

    I assume you are looking at a point and shoot, in order to be small enough to put in a shirt pocket. That is such a rapidly chaning market that I make no attempt to keep up with it. I always use Steve's Digicams when I am looking for a P&S.

      I am not familiar enough with the technology to know if my existing camera and features compares to the point and shoot cameras available. I wouldn't want to spend a lot of money on something that is smaller but produces inferior pictures. I guess I am looking for advice like on how my camera differs from other options. Like I said, I am not knowledgeable in this area I just enjoy taking pictures.

        I have taken a look at the S700 and, frankly, don't see anything about it that would make me want it. The worst thing that I see is that it has no image stabilization. There are plenty of P&S cameras that will run circles around it.

        Look at this one:

        I hope this helps.

        BTW, I have a really nice DSLR, but it is also big and heavy. There is no way that I would carry it around when, for example, I was at Disney World. I would want a P&S.

          Mike's link is very useful. Before deciding to go DSLR, I was pretty sold on a point-and-shoot and really liked the Canon S95. I'd recommend taking a look at that.

            When not using my DSLR, I use a Sony TX5; it's waterproof.

            DPReview just updated it's waterproof cameras review and Nikon just announced a rugged camera as well.

            These rugged cameras allow me to get shots I would miss otherwise.
