point & shoot, 5 mp, swing out LCD, is there a camera....?

by mkaresh / April 9, 2006 4:24 PM PDT

I've had my mind settled on the canon a610, but after looking at it one more time I'm a little unsure of it's extra manual operations (which I most likely will never use) and the possibility of E18 error. There are simpler cameras out there with 5 megapixels, but I really like the swing out LCD (especially after trying out a Kodak Easyshare the last couple of days). This will be my first digicam. I'm not unintelligent, just not into tech stuff much!

Can anyone point me in a good direction here? Is there a site that will let you search based on feature (i.e. the swing out LCD)?

Thank you!

Articulated LCD
by snapshot2 Forum moderator / April 10, 2006 12:51 AM PDT

There is one site that will let you search for features but not for articulated LCD:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/compare.asp

Her is my list of digital cameras (old and new) with articulated LCDs and 5 meg or more:

Canon G6, A95, Pro 1, S2 IS, A610, A620
Fujifilm S9000
Kodak Easy Share 1 (4 meg)
Konica Minolta A2, A200
Nikon 5400, 8400, 8700, 8800
Olympus C-7070
Panasonic FZ30
Sony R1, M1, M2

Most of those cameras are $500 (and up), but super nice cameras.

I recommend the Canon S2 IS
by mmantei / April 10, 2006 9:03 PM PDT

While a lieelt more expensive, I highly recommend the Canon S2 IS. The 4x optical zoom on the A610 is in my opinion a very limiting factor. The S2 IS with it's 12x optical zoom makes it a lot more functional. It is 5mp and has the swing out LCD. One thing it lacks that my previous camera had (a Canon G2) is a remote control. Other than that, I have found no negatives to the camera.

Canon A95

this meets your requirements. Got this camera last year and have been very happy with its performance. The swingout LCD truly is a musthave.
