Canon PowerShot S60 vs. Sony DSC V1

by nsanghani / September 21, 2004 11:57 AM PDT

Just when I was ready to buy the Sony DSC V1 I came across Canon PowerShot S60 and now I am confused as to which one has a better picture quality?

Anyone has experience with these camera's?

Thanks for the pictures. It does give some idea but then again difficult to really say the difference. Can I ask which pictures do you think are better and any specific reason

Thanks for the help

As you saw for yourself, both cameras take excellent photos.

With such good photos, you would have to look for minor details to see differences. I download a photo and use a software program that will let me zoom into the picture.

One place I look, is on the picture of the 2 1/2 story red brick building. On the left side of the photo, there is a smaller red building and in front of that building is a street sign. You will have to zoom into the photo quite a way to see it.

How well can you make out the street name and the block number?

Now look at the dumpster just to the right of the street sign. There is a number on the dumpster, can you read that number?

Now check the grass in the lower right part of the photo. The grass on the right side of the street. How good is the grass detail?

This picture is taken with just enough zoom to make it equal to a 35mm film camera with a 50mm lens. Probably a zoom of about 1.5X

I found this discussion very useful because I am too stuck on choosing between those two. I have to say that seeing those picture samples, I was WAY more impressed with the quality of the Canon's S60. Much more clearer and sharper details, you can really see the difference in dark pictures, Sony produced extremly grainy photos.

Personally I think it's all in the settings, my freind owns a V1 and I saw the quality of the pictures he makes, even dark ones look amazing.
