Here are five solid camera choices for Fathers Day 2009:
- For HD Lovers:
Canon PowerShot SD780 IS – Photos and HD Video. $280
- Birdwatchers and long-distance viewers:
Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 – Longest zoom for a point and shoot at 12X. $400
- Most portable:
Sony DSC-T700 Cyber-shot – Tiny and flat with 4GB of internal memory but only a 4X zoom. $400
- Most brand conscious:
Leica C-LUX 3 – It’s a Leica, and very good, but the price shows it. $600
- Budget conscious:
Nikon Coolpix S220 – Good basic camera, but don’t expect a lot of bells and whistles.
Biggest camera buying hint this year. Compare sensor size not megapixel quantity. That will determine the quality of the photo since all cameras are now made so you can blow up photos to larger sizes.
