Which Camera

I'm not sure whether this is the place to post this . Here's the choice that I've arrived at
after looking at several review sights.

Canon SX210
14.1 M.Pix
1/2.3 CCD Sensor
28-300 Zoom Equivalent
LCD 230000 pixels

Canon PS S90
10 M.PIx
1/1.7 CCD Sensor
28-105 Zoom Equivalent
LCD 461000 pixels

One question is, which gives better quality. A larger sensor like the S90 or more Pixels
like the SX210.
I'm particularly interested in macro images and am not sure which would give the better
results.
They both have manual controls which I want.

Any info much appreciated.

Re: Which Camera

This one, to me, seems like a tough decision. I was told that size DOES matter. At least sensor size, anyway. It looks like the SX210 doesn't offer as many options as the S90, but the maximum resolution is better on the SX210. Not to mention the maximum shutter speed is better. So for those 2 reasons, I would buy the SX210. Hope I helped a little...

Re: Which Camera

Thanks Strutter

Today I went to Henry's to hold the two cameras in my hands and to compare them.

The S90 felt better. The SX 210 felt not as substantial in comparison.

The S90 $449, the SX210 $339 at Henry's. Now to do some price shopping and more research and thinking about what I really do want.

Re: Which Camera

It's good to see that you're taking your time with your decision. $449.00 seems a bit high for the S90. DP Review has the street price at $375. www.dpreview.com I'd shop around a little more. Good luck. Let us know which camera you decide on.

Re: Which Camera

Thanks,

The thing is that I live in Toronto, up here in Canada. I'm somewhat reluctant to get it from the USA if there's any warranty problems. I can get it for $300 in Taiwan but that's the same problem.

Re: Which Camera

I moved your thread to the right place for ya. I live in Ontario, too... and $449 is probably the right place for up here. You might find it on sale at Henry's before school kicks off, though... Same with FutureShop (who also sells if for $450).

Re: Which Camera

Thanks, I'm still debating the whole thing. I've found a " Lensmate " attachment that enables the use of 37mm filters ,ND and Polarizing. They say to not use conversion lenses but who knows.
Will let you know.

Well I did buy the S90. I just can't get used to it.

One odd thing is that with the S90 on Auto on a cloudy dark and moody day the auto brightens up the whole scene and it loses all it's aura.
I know that I can switch to manual but sometimes wanting to take a fast shot that's not possible.
The other thing is that the image from the S90 seems a little contrasty. The highlights seem to burn out but I may figure this out in time.

Re: Which Camera

Digital quality involves the number of megapixels, the size of the pixels and the size of the sensor. Camera makers can fiddle with the number of pixels -- they can stuff a whole bunch of small ones into a sensor and pretend that's a good thing when in fact it won't make the photos better. Thus a decent SLR can have the same number of megapixels as a credit card-sized camera. But the output is nowhere the same. My opinion is you can't make a judgement by the numbers, you need to get your hands on the cameras. Or find somebody that has used both. Good luck.
