Best P+S (point and shoot) Cameras on the market

Recommended Posts

im in the market for a new point and shoot

mainly looking for small size, great image quality, and manual settings would be nice

only camera i found with decent manual settings is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 but from reviews seems like noise is an issue with most panasonic cameras

any other recommendations?

The people on dpreview can't shut up about the Fuji F30. But they are more about cameras than about photography so take it with a grain of salt.

Fuji f31d

Great Low Light capabilities

manual controls

I have never really been satisfied with the picture quality from my panasonic fz7 with regards to noise and i understand thats a problem mirrored across the range. I owould strongly reccommend checking out in detail all the sample photos for a panny before deciding - particualr those at higher iso (Which i did but didn;t really appreciate until later i guess). Having said that its superb for shooting birds and stuff, depends on your desired usage.

I bought a Fuji F31fd last week. It's my first camera as I've always bought disposables before. It's completely easy to use, loads of features and I've yet to take a shit picture with it.

homi29, i'd stick with the panasonic. you can't pass up the 16:9 widescreen mode. haha.

if you (or anyone else) is interested, check out the olympus stylus epic

sorry, it's not a digi, but it's cheap ($79.99) and it has a great lens on it (fixed 35mm f/2.8).
