Well I'm getting a new camera and have come to the choosing part, basically the upper limit is Â£180 and I'm torn between two but also looking for other suggestions.
It's to replace my fuji finepix S5600 that was stolen.
my requirements are as so:
*Min 10x optical zoom
*Needs to have shutter speed adjustment of at least 15 seconds down to 1/2000th of a second
*A decent amount of megapixels (6 or more)
*Full aperture adjustments would be nice but up to F8.0 is acceptable
*Built in flash
*Preferably uses standard batteries like AA, unless it's canon, got a load of them already
I've already Seen two I like, being most familiar with Fuji and canon drew me towards them.
The Finepix S1000FD is the evolution of my older camera and the controls remain the same for the most part, Has 12x zoom which is better and 10 megapixels resolution...
The canon SX100 is cheaper and only has 10x zoom, it does do slightly faster shutter speeds but it's a marginal difference, it also includes optical image stabilisation which would be nice, the fuji has no mention of this...
Any other suggestions for potential cameras are very welcome, please help me choose between these two or others...
