View Full Version : Quick Question: Point and Shoot

Feb 20, 2008, 09:33 PM
If you didn't have a big budget (as I don't, as a college student) would you go with:

A Canon Powershoot SD1000 or a Nikon CoolPix S51

I will be using it for pictures of my puppy, my girlfriend and I, and a few scenery shots.

Obviously, I'm not asking for much, but I would like the ability to blow-up the shots to make small posters and still maintain good clarity.

Thoughts? Personal experiences?

I'm leaning towards the S51, because I prefer Nikon over Canon for some reason.

IMO the Canon is the better choice, although Nikon is up there as well.

I also vote for the Canon, but I'd pony up a few extra bucks for the SD800 or SD870 mostly for the wide angle lens.
