Small Camera For Clubbing/ Pubbing

by cjthatcher5050 / April 6, 2006 7:05 PM PDT

I'm looking for a small camera, that's good in the dark dungeon like clubs, around 4-5MP, and can fit in jean's pockets. Two I've seen are Casio Exilim EX-Z60 and Cannon IXUS 55, which is the better of these? Is there any other cameras I should know about. My sort of price range is

A clubbing/pubbing camera

I totally agree with snapshot2. In this price range, the Fujifilm FinePix F30 is incomparable for its low light/low noise at high resolution/high ISO capabilities. If you want to save a bit of money, prices are dropping for the Fujifilm FinePix F10/F11. But if you're willing to wait, the F30 has the newer, next generation Fujifilm technology and with ISO 3200.

Dark indoor places like clubs/pubs, it is great to be able to take pictures in natural light/low light without a flash so as not to risk bothering people with a flash, capture spontaneous pictures, etc. Sure, other cameras, in this price range, could take low light pictures/high ISO with no flash but the results will be lower resolution and higher noise.

Sorry for being so repetitive in my posts. It seems like I'm just only discussing the F30. LOL.

If you prefer the camera's appearance to impress people with the small, slim, stylish, coolness factor then purchase a camera from the other major companies. But if you prefer how the camera takes pictures with low light/low noise at high resolution/high ISO then the Fujifilm FinePix F10/F11 or the upcoming F30.

Maybe later in the year or next year (PMA 2007) the other companies might release a camera that can compete with Fujifilm's technology.

If the IXUS 55 is same as the Canon Powershot SD400 then by all means go with that one. I have one and the main reason I did get it is it's great abilty to take shots indoors, with little or no light, with excellent focus and clarity.

I'm guessing that those sony cyber shots aren't particularly good then, they seem small enough Silly

Canon's low light performance?

Yes, the Powershot SD400 is small, stylish, and convenient to carry around with decent daylight/flash pictures.

With SD400's maximum ISO 400, I'd surely like to see ISO 200/400 no flash/low light indoor picture samples. Reviews mention and show samples of high noise already at ISO 200. The differences are noticeable in comparison to the no flash/low light ISO 800/1600 samples, from various web sites, of the Fuji FinePix F10/F11.
