    Default Recommend a Camera

    I need a new digital camera to replace a sony dsc-w55.
    Maximum price around £120 stirling.
    That's probably about $230 - $250 USD, and no idea what that is in Euros as I hate that currency.

    Get recommending please.

    Also: I'm not interested in your uber duber mega 1 zillion dollar supercamera, so go tell someone who gives a shit.
    Thanks.

    Are they even aloud to take pictures? Won't it steal their soul or something?

    I dont really think there's a better camera than another one in that range of price.

    Sony, Canon, Nikon, Fuji, name it.. all have good camera for 200$. Once you hit the 1000$, you can get unique specifications or better options.

    I disagree.
    I had purchased a Kodak of some kind but it sucked, and so I traded it in for the Sony dsc w-55 which was only about £10 more expensive, but it turned out to be a far superior camera in every way possible.

    The brother no longer works at the store, so I won't have the option to unofficially swap any future cameras for alternative models if I don't like them.
    Hence I have to get the correct camera this time.

    Interesting.
    How does it compare to a dsc w-55?
    The model number seems to indicate that your camera could be better than my old one.

    If you can scrape up a bit more, these are pretty sweet.

    [anything not mentioned below means that it's the exact same as the other]
    Well, let me just bring up each thing as it's own:

    The W55's zoom reaches 3x optical, the 120/L reaches 4x, not that it really matters to you, but the 120's zoom is only slightly better.

    The 120/L has Face Detection, Smile Shutter mode, Sony Double Anti-Blur Solution, I've yet to use Face Detection [or find it absolutely useful besides smile-shutter-mode.], but I do think it's a really neat feature, but if someone's too far away, it won't recognize.

    Smile Shutter mode is good for people who don't like to smile, combining it with Face Detection [it's automatically combined] you can press the "Take Picture" button all day, but until they smile, it won't take a picture.

    I really haven't noticed anything special in the Anti-Blur solution, I mean I have shakey hands, but my pictures aren't blurry, so I can only assume it's that.

    Super SteadyShot Optical Image Stabilization Compensates for shaky hands and minimizes blur with a built-in gyro sensor that detects camera movement and sends correcting signals to a stabilization lens -- so there’s no need to crop in on your shot to reduce blur.
    [Nevermind, it's this ^^ this is a really good thing for me.]

    Small Downside:
    15 MB internal memory Even if you forget your flash memory card, you can get the shot because 15 MB internal memory lets you capture a limited number of shots with in-camera convenience, then easily transfer your shots to a PC or optional Memory Stick Duo media.

    This isn't fun at all, I got this in time for my father's wedding, and I was only able to take FOUR pictures . . decrease picture quality from Godlike to Shitlike, and you'll be able to take 8. The movie time on this was pretty good though, around a minute and thirty seconds. Make sure you have a DUO stick.

    Anyways, apparently on the Product Features list, there's around 10 more things that the 120/L can do tha the W55 doesn't have. If you really wanna take time to get into it, you can.

    But I just got this because it's a really good point and shoot, I actually really liked how this picture turned out:
    http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/7564/dsc00022sd5.jpg

    I'm sure the W55 could do the same, but I just really like it, a really good point and shoot.

    Any other questions?

    I'll put in a good word for you.

    On another note: am I the only one who thinks there really isn't any quality increase when you go from like 3mp to 10mp?
    Sure you get a bigger picture, but it will be just as boring, or grainy, or blurry or generally shit if the same set of circumstances are in places.
    True / false ?

    Thanks, but over here it's around £210 which is approaching twice the budget I have set.
