July 22, 2004
I have been getting to grips with the SLR Canon 300D I have here at work which is an excellent camera. The trouble is that it isn't something I can slip in my pocket when out walking and don't want to take a heavy SLR with me. I have been researching the market for a digital compact with good manual features and am currently trying to chose between a Canon S60 and the Sony Cybershot DSC-W1 and the Sony Cybershot DSC-V1. I am looking to spend between £300-£400. The reviews for both the Sony's are excellent – various prosumer awards, Carl Zeiss lens etc and I know Sony products are always excellent. However, I have got used to the Canon auto settings and manual controls and have always been impressed with the results from my film Canon Sureshot in the past.
It will probably come down to my emotional response in handling the caneras at the end of the day, but if anyone has any experience of any of the cameras it would be great to get some opinions!
