5 megaPix Cameras - Photography

I'm thinking of buying a point and shoot digi camera. The ones I am considering at the moment are the minolta DiMAGE F300 [url]http://www.minoltausa.com/eprise/main/MinoltaUSA/MUSAContent/CPG/CPGProducts?cname=dig[/url] and the cannon S50 [url]http://www.canon.com.au/products/cameras/digital_compact_cameras/powershots50.html[/url] I think for me the minolta is better - uses AA batteries... Any comments ... or others to throw in the pile? Regards Frank Warner...

    I would look at one that takes both AA and recharge. Digital cameras are
    much more economical now and some will get 350 shot per recharge.

    Have a look at the SAMSUNG! and the HP, Nikon etc. there are a few now.

    Do 5Mp small sensor cameras give good results or are they just
    acceptable results??? How far do they surpass a 3 or 4 Mp in the
    printed results?

    Are they worth buying or is it just the hype.

    Dont rule out the Olympus C50 or C5050 cameras - both are very high quality.
    The C5050 takes Lithium or AA batteries, and also has a very bright F1.8
    lens.

    What about Nikon Coolpix 5700? Any opinions on this camera?

    Thats very high end...looked like a nice camera but out the price range for
    compacts for most, I would think it be better going for a SLR....a G5 or
    Coolpix 5400

    again, read the reviews at dpreview.com. from memory this camera was OK but
    suffered from the usual nikon prosumer body problems- slightly lower image
    quality, slow lens, high noise, n highlights, chromatic abberation etc
    etc. not a *bad* camera by any means, but a step below eg. canon and oly who
    seem better in this market, with canon using cheap CF media as a bonus

    really it's up to you, go to a store and try them out in person.
