Best digital camera for Realtors?

by nathanayoung / August 21, 2006 1:30 PM PDT

My wife and I are Realtors in Baltimore. I am looking to purchase a new digital camera. I want something decent with a large viewfinder that I can take wide angle interior pics with. My wife wants something sleek and ultra-portable. Any suggestions. I'd like to spend around $500.

Wide Angle Lens
by snapshot2 Forum moderator / August 21, 2006 1:50 PM PDT

There are very few small digital cameras that have wide-angle lenses.

Canon - S70 and S80 (28mm)
Kodak V570 and V705(23mm)
Panasonic FX01, FX50, FX07 (28mm)

The two Kodak cameras have the widest angle lens (23mm focal length).

Are those cameras which you listed in your post by Kodak good starter digital cameras or are they considered to be more advanced digital cameras? Do any of them offer image stabilization?

One Hint

For posting photos on a website or in multiple listings, a high resolution camera is not required. Anything above 2 mp will show great on a computer screen. I've found that a Kodak, Fuji, Canon, etc. point & shoot gives good results.

Image Stabilization and Image Quality
by tedfeely / August 26, 2006 5:32 AM PDT

I'm also interested in a digital camera for shooting indoors.

Will a camera with image stabilization enable high quality images when shooting without a flash and without a tripod?

It can help somewhat with light by allowing slightly longer shutter speeds with no increase in the blur caused by shaking, or it can help when not using a tripod to stabilize the image at a specific shutter speed. It can't fully do both at the same time.
