Which camera should I buy? This short questionnaire will help the rest of us make good camera recommendations for you. Please answer each question carefully and succinctly. The questions marked with a * are the most important. Budget * What budget have you allocated for buying this camera? Please be as specific as possible. I'm in the UK and am planning to spend about £200 - £250. Size * What size camera are you looking for? Or does size not matter at all to you? It has to fit in my pocket. Features How many megapixels will suffice for you? 7 + * What optical zoom will you need? (None, Standard = 3x-4x, Ultrazoom = 10x-12x) Standard is fine, anything extra is a bonus. * How important is “image quality” to you? (Rate using a scale of 1-10) 8-9 Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)? Not really. General Usage * What will you generally use the camera for? Scenic shots, photos of the children, maybe some sporty pics * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not? Not often, but it'd be nice to have it as an option Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos? Yes, I guess about 60% of our shots are indoors. Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos? Yep, but this is not the main use of the camera. Miscellaneous Are there particular brands you like or hate? No. Are there particular models you already have in mind? I've considered the Olympus mju range but purely as a gadget as I don't really need my camera to withstand such extremes. I've also considered Sony T200. I'm open to other models. (If applicable) Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD) No but I get frustrated with the shutter lag on my current camera (Pentax, optio s4i), I'd like something ALOT faster. I hope you can help as I know very little about cameras!
