DSC-W70, W100

by soccerman44 / July 3, 2006 3:03 PM PDT

Hey everyone, i'm stuck between two sony cameras, price does not matter to me. I'm stuck on sacrificing size, for functionality, seeing that the W100 has manual controls, and the W70 does not. Let me tell you about myself first. I am a decent photographer, I know a little about professional photography, but I am a fast learner. I want to get the best photos out of any situation. Any comments, or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Are you sure about the manual controls?

Sony has never offered true manual controls on their small cameras.

The W70 has Program AE mode which lets you make several manual adjustments.

But it does not have"
Aperture Priority
Shutter Priority
Manual Control

See this link:

The differiences I see is:
W100 has 8 megalpixels (7 for W70)
W100 has a slightly brighter flash
W100 ISO maximum is 1200 (1000 for W70)
