Be cautious with the flash in the baby's eyes - It can't be good for a newborn baby.
But not much of a problem, because a newborn baby had its eyes closed most of the time anyway.
A quick warning - Don't get the Canon elph 300.
Canon used a lens that does not match the camera properly.
Instead choose the elph 310.
They fixed the problem with the 310.
The Canon S95/S100 have better low light performance than the average point-and-shoot cameras.
Which makes it better for taking photos inside without using flash.
Shutter Lag - the time between pressing the shutter button and capturing the image.
Shutter lag for the elph camera is average, the S95 is fast, the S100 is average unless you turn off a new feature.
With the new feature turned off, the shutter lag is fast. The new feature is about letting the camera automatically select the Mode.
Shot to Shot - is the time to take one photo after another.
The elph cameras are fast, the S95 is average and the S100 is fast.
If you are using flash, shot to shot time will be several seconds because it takes at least 2.5 seconds to recharge the flash capacitor. This is true on any camera, even the very expensive ones.
Hi, I'm looking for some advice on buying s new camera. I've just had a baby and completely forgot to buy a decent camera before she got here. I am looking for a camera that produces good quality photos in auto mode, doesn't take too long taking the photo once I press the shutter (sorry, don't know what that's called) and is compact. I was thinking about the canon s95/s100 but I think it would be a waste of money unless I plan on learning how to use the features (which I don't have time for right now), so I thought maybe the canon elph 300, but it's menu didn't seem too user friendly when I tested it compared to a Sony cybershot.
Does anybody have any tips for me?
