Digital Camera questions

By azul ·
I am going to buy a new digital camera, I need somthing small that can take good to high quality pictures.

The main function of this camera is to take cycling action photos. It will have to be small, light and fit in a jersey pocket.

Does anyone have any recomendations?

sony and canon

have best photo quality according to reviews I've read. Sony has slightly better customer service / repairs.

It would be good to have a burst photo mode if taking cycling pix. This takes some # of frames a fraction of a second apart, so you can pick best.

check resellerratings.com if you buy online before purchasing from a company. type website name into the company name box,not the product box.

dpreviews.com has top selling cameras list and in depth on various models.

You can always look at models at your local camera store and ask them.

epinions.com sometimes has what users think of your particular model.

someone I know who travels alot to s america uses powershot s3, good pix.

High Quality Photos are not possible to be taken on any Small Format Digital Camera at best they should never be considered as anything better than Happy Snaps as the cameras just lack the quality to take High Quality Pictures.

If you want something to take photos while cycling any of the small format cameras that are currently available will suit your needs but never misunderstand it these are not High Quality Photos they are at best convenient.

You need to look for yourself and see what you like here as while some may like a particular brand or type camera another will find it hard to use so it's better if you try a few and then settle with what you are comfortable in using.

Don't get me wrong these things can take decent photos provided that you are not looking at enlarging them a lot if you keep the pictures small they will look quite good but you will lose quite a lot the larger that you go so from that prospective you are only looking at Happy Snaps.
