'only 7 megapixels'
7 megapixels is more than adequate - don't focus on megapixels. in fact, some higher megapixel p&s type cameras look much worse than ones with less... long story there.
unless you're planning on making posters out of your pics - the megapixel count (above 4 or so) should be very low on you list of priorities.
Ok, I think I have like read a million reviews between the two of them. Here is my dilemma.
I made the mistake of purchasing a Sony Cybershot T-100. I wanted to use the camera for mostly indoors for people and pets. When I first used it, I noticed that the pictures looked incredible on the LCD. Even the design of the camera was just super comfortable to work with and the program was just easy to work with. But what it really comes down to is what the pictures look like - they turned out to be crap. The pictures were grainy and cheap looking and it looked like you need loads of light even though the flash acts like it could blind you. Outdoor pictures were fantastic, but the indoors were just plain horrible!
So, now I am looking to returning the Sony and deciding between the Canon SD800 and the Canon SD900.
I like how there is an image stabilizer and the rare option of the wide lens. But the catch is that the pictures are not as crisp and sharp. It is only a 7 megapixel.
The pictures are the best I have seen for compact cameras. The colors are vibrant and they are finely detailed. It includes a wide lens and a 10 megapixel sensor. But the catch to this one is that there is no image stabilizer.
I really would like a camera that has vibrant colors and sharpness. But what you do you think when it really comes down to taking pictures of active pets and people? Would I just really be better off with the SD800 because of the image stablizer? I noticed that there is a $50 difference between the SD900 and the SD800. I keep noticing that a lot of people state that the image stablizer is a very important key feature in a good camera. Should I follow this advice? I just am amazed on how the pictures are so crisp with the SD900, though.
Thank you. Any input would be much appreciated. ^_^
