My Hunt For a Digital Camera Begins...



42 days separate me from OHIO! I can't wait. I want to get the perfect digital camera to capture everything I see (and blog it). I will probably be getting the camera once i get there since they probably have better deals there (plus the warranty). I currently have the Casio Exillim EX-Z1000. It has been a good camera, but i need something better now. I heard alot about Canon being the best in terms of Digital Cameras. I have checked the Canon cameras, and from the specs point of view, they look excellent. I am not sure though if I should get the Powershot G9 or the EOS Rebel XSi. Honestly, i really don't know what's the advantage of an SLR - or what is an SLR for that matter (assuming they are better due to the higher prices). I will continue to do my research on this. For the mean time, the G9 and the Rebel XSi are on my list. If you own any of the two (or any other Canon camera), please tell me your thoughts. Also, if you recommend a certain Camera other than the two I have mentioned, i'll check it out. Thanks for the help!

I always prefer Canon Powershot camera for best picture quality.

I personally like SONY for consumer electronics, but even though they have full-spec'd cameras, i always hear from ppl that canon have "cleaner" lenses (something that isn't put in spec sheets).

I have the Sony Alpha and it's been amazing so far but the only downside is that it has relatively slow focus and a loud shutter sound compared to Canon and Nikon. However, I'm pretty sure they have fixed this with the A350 and A700.

Yeah well that's what i heard. Canon beats sony in terms that can't be seen on a spec sheet. Stuff like how "clean" the lens is, and shutter sound as u mentioned.
