Best low light ultracompact out right now

by Pcg-k33 user / April 7, 2006 4:26 AM PDT

Hey everybody. I was wondering if you all might be able to help me with a decision I?m trying to make. I have already solicited information from this board before and it was very helpful. I believe I have narrowed my digital camera choices to either the Sony DSC T9 or the Casio Exlim E-S600.

The problem I am having is that from the reviews I have read neither one of these is particularly good in low light, where I assume I will be taking my pictures most. I need an ultracompact that is good in low light situations.

Now I know your all going to suggest the Fujifilm F30. But that?s not an option for me. I need something by the end of next week. I do not have the time to wait for the F30. I had the same problem with the Canon SD700 IS, that thing looked sweet but unless its in stores next week I?m out of luck.

According to the reviews on CNET the Fujifilm FinePix Z1 is supposed to be pretty good a low light shots. Does anybody else know anything more about this camera good or bad?

So to sum up I need to know what ultracompact out there right now that is the best in low light conditions. I realize that their aren?t a lot of good option out right now but I?ll just have to work with what?s available.

Thanks guys

What about the Fuji F10

Why not try the Fuji F10- all the reviews I have seen show this to be the best ( in the moderate price category) for low light shots.

Seems a little bulky

Yeah I know its a bit nit picky but I was really hoping for something less then an inch thick. But I will take it into consideration, thanks for the advice.

Sony Dsc-t9 - Be aware!

Fantastic camera how ever small round white dust spots show up on pictures in low light conditions. From what other websites have said this is because of dust close to the lens reflecting. Because the flash is close to the lens it seems to be a bigger problem than in most larger digital cameras.
