Canon SD4000 vs. Sony TX7 vs. Lumix DMC-FX75K

by sax427 / August 12, 2010 12:37 PM PDT

Help! I'm currently using an old Canon SD600 and while I don't have major problems with it, I'd like to upgrade to something with a bigger screen and a less clunky build. While I like to mess with settings once in a while, I'm no great photographer and barely ever change the ISO settings or the exposure times (see, I don't even know what that's called!) unless it is a night shot on vacation or something.

I'd like:
Small size
Crisp pictures, won't be blown up over 5x7 (probably over 4x6, really)
Good pics in low lighting (sad to say, usually at bars and of goofy friends) which includes not having a flash so strong it turns ppl into ghosts!
HD video, but this isn't a must.

These are the models I *THINK* I've narrowed it down to, but of course, when doing too much homework, you always find negative reviews somewhere. (Also not many reviews at all of the Panasonic FX75.) I've always had Canons and have enjoyed them, but I'm don't want to blindly stick with them if there are better options out there. Any suggestions? Also, if I'm missing some model that might be a better fit, let me know...

i think i've read all those reviews once, but i'll give them another go. i've also just been reading user reviews on best buy and amazon, just to get joe-shmo's opinion. again, no user reviews on the panasonic yet, which worries me. and people either LOVE their sonys or think they're crap.

ok, i'll look through them one more time and then decide! thanks for your help. Happy

anyone else want to chime in?
