A little Help with some Decision making

by jdk588 / September 4, 2005 6:33 AM PDT

OK so ive narrowed down my choices to the Casio Z500 and ex-750 for various reasons...

1. I need somehting real small no thicker than a wallet or biger than a pack a gum ( i wanna put it in my jean pockets and not worry about it

2. i need to take "arty" shots...im no photographer but i do liek to take the ocasional "cool" picture for my Photo Class...im not setting up compositionaly sound portraits i jsut wanna take cool pictures.

3. i need somehting that takes a decent snap shot...i rarely print pictures and if i do i go to CVS and print nothing bigger than an 8 x 6...i don't know what ISO really is but im on Sony cybershot P7 ive never once adjusted setting like that...

4. i like the best shot mode idea

5. i want to take movie clips too...im not looking to get a camcorder...but i would like somehting thats not that bad at it


SO...at this point the two casios are what seem good to me. I can get both around for the same price, 300 with gift certifactes at amazon, so thats not really an aissue...my main question is what should i get, what am i lossing by getting the thinner z500, and what other cameras should i check out if any...appreciate the help

When you have narrowed down you choice to only two cameras, it is time to visit a camera store.

You need to get you hands on both cameras.

See how it feels in your hands.
Give it a test drive (shoot).
Check out the buttons.
Remove and reinstall the battery.
Remove and reinstall the memory card.

When you leave the store, you will know which one you want.
