Next Level Cameras

Cameras ideal for those who want more than the basics

Canon SD800is

This camera is one of my personal favorites. Its small size is perfect for keeping in a purse or coat pocket and capturing candid, spontaneous moments. The optical image stabilization keeps blurry pictures to a minimum, even in low light. Perfect for pictures up to 5x7, although sometimes 8x10 will look good.

Next Level Cameras

Cameras ideal for those who want more than the basics

Nikon L5

One of Nikon’s best point and shoot cameras. Very easy to use, but gives you enough control to make some great pictures. 8X10 prints are possible, but 5X7’s are the norm. Not quite the same quality as the Canon SD800is, but at $100 cheaper, it’s not a bad choice!

Canon S3is

Another great camera from Canon. This camera is fairly easy to use, and has a lot of control to it. This camera is great for getting close-up shots when the photographer can’t be any closer. The high optical zoom and optical image stabilization result in pictures worthy of 8X10 prints.

  • This camera is meant to be shown off. With its huge touch screen LCD, built in slideshow, and spectacular movie mode, it’s hard not to want to show it off. 8x10 prints will look good from this camera, which is rare from cameras this small.

It’s compatible with Canon EF, EF-S, TS-E and MP-E interchangeable lenses as well as Canon EX-series flashes.

Sony Alpha

Sony’s first DSLR is impressive. It uses Minolta’s engineering and Sony’s creativity. The self-cleaning imaging sensor shakes prevents dust from ruining pictures. The continuous auto focus works with an optical sensor located below the viewfinder that detects light. It’s hard to take a bad picture when the camera does this much work!

digital camcorders
Digital Camcorders have not changed much since July’s presentation. Most camcorders transition a month or two after Christmas, meaning the best time to buy is usually Jan. and Feb.

The biggest changes to camcorders have been from Sony’s line-up of hard drive and high-def camcorders.
