Your question is basically the same as "What's the best car?". There is no right answer. The best camera for me may not be the best camera for you.I would like to know what everyone thinks the best point and shoot camera on the market is. I'm looking hard at the new Canon S90, is there anything else I should consider? Thanks a bunch for any insight..
Unless you're the sort of person who likes paying a $300 premium just to have a pretty little red dot on your camera, the Panasonic LX3 would be a better choice. Apart from some minor differences in jpeg (but not raw) processing, they are exactly the same camera. And the LX3 is once again readily available, after being difficult to keep on the shelves until now. It's really a no-brainer, choosing between the two. Of course, I love my D-LUX 4 and its pretty red dot.I would also consider a Leica D-Lux 4.
All P&S cameras involve compromise. You just need to decide what you are willing to compromise on and what you are not willing to compromise on based on your shooting needs.
First question is "Do you have a budget?"I would like to know what everyone thinks the best point and shoot camera on the market is. I'm looking hard at the new Canon S90, is there anything else I should consider? Thanks a bunch for any insight..
Leica also makes a "nice" M9, too. Why suggest an old model for a hypothetical someone who has an unlimited budget? Speaking of which, if you want to pay $1500 for a compact, wait for the Leica X1.Do you need "point and shoot" or do you meand "compact" if the later and there is no budget Leica makes a nice "M8.2"
