Fuji finepix S5700 vs canon A720 IS, which is the best? Topic: Research against homework
July 16, 2019 / By Chris
Question: I want a prosumer (slr-like) camera. I like Portrait, Indoor, Landscape and Macro photography. I am more concerned about colours and quality of image sharpness. I don't want blur photos. Can anybody suggest me the best camera in range (140 - 160 pounds). I like Fuji S5700 because of it's Optical Zoom. thanks.

I currently own the Fuji S5200. I have no complaints, but I'm still planning on replacing it next spring - with the Fuji S9100. I would counsel you to do your research. Read all about any camera that you have an interest in - including both professional and owner reviews. I was tempted to purchase one of the Sony DSC H7 or H9 cameras, but after doing some reading by owners, I found that Sony cameras had a few problems that owners complained about. Granted, I was already leaning toward the Fuji S9100, but the reviews against the Sony - along with a lot of favorable reviews about the S9100 - solidified which camera I want. Google any camera that you're interested in as "(camera model) reviews" and spend time doing your homework. Good luck.

Ambie Originally Answered: Which is better camera,Nikon D 80 or Canon EOS 40D?
If you really mean the 40D and not the 400D, that's the probably better choice. If you MEANT to ask about the 400D, which is much more comparable to the D80, I'd say the D80. Just because I already have this comparison typed out and saved, I'll post it in case you meant to say 400D. Pretty much all of the things that I consider as shortcomings in the 400D are not a problem in the 40D. Comparing the Nikon D80 vs. Canon 400D/Rebel XTi Check this page: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond80... The first thing I notice is that the Canon does not have a spot meter. I thought they added that in the XTi, but I guess past criticism was not heard at Canon. The Nikon user-definable Auto-ISO is an interesting feature that lets you define a couple of parameters about what's acceptable to you and what's not. I don't think this would be the tie-breaker, though, if you can't decide between cameras. The D80 has a pentaprism and the Canon uses mirrors. "They" say that mirrors are getting pretty good, but I would expect the pentaprism to be a brighter viewfinder. The Nikon lets you do actual multiple exposures in the camera and some people think this is pretty cool. Click "next" and move to page 22 and you'll see some image comparisons. Click "next" a couple more times to see more direct comparisons on page 25. Click "next" a couple more times to see some noise level comparisons on page 27. It looks to me like the D80 has actually tamed the noise better than the XTi, but read the comments about image softness. Click one more time and see that the D80 is clearly the winner in image sharpness. Go on to the next page and read the conclusions. You can go to the side-by-side at http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/compare_... and also click on "Our in depth review" and "Read owner opinions" for each camera. The last line in the Nikon D80 review reads, "If you're a more discerning photographer who can see the advantages offered by the 'all round' D80 you may well consider the extra money well spent." The last line in the Canon 400D/XTi review reads, "Thanks to its blood line and low price the EOS 400D will no doubt be a huge success for Canon. However unlike the EOS 350D, for me it's no longer the first or obvious choice, so before jumping on the bandwagon make sure you've weighed up the competition." In other words, you've selected with the two best cameras in their price class. Canon is probably saving a little money using their CMOS sensor and this will bring them some market share. Whether the sensor and images are better or not is open to wild debate based on personal preferences. Whether one camera feels better in your hands might just be the determining factor. You have got to go to a real camera store and handle them both. I guess Costco, Circuit City or Best Buy would also have actual samples on display, but you may not get as much help from the staff. As far as lens choice, I'd rather see you start with one decent lens instead of the kit lens, although Nikon's kit lens (18-55) has actually tested pretty well. Canon's new 18-55 Series II lens is okay, also. For Nikon, I like the Nikkor AF-S 18-70 f/3.5-4.5G ED DX. This costs about $300. I bought this for my wife on her D50 and liked it so much (for the money) that I bought it as a backup for one of my cameras. Nikon is now offering the D80 in a kit with a very nice 18-135 lens, although it does have a polycarbonate ("plastic") mount that might begin to wear if you buy additional lenses and change them often. For Canon, one of our best answerers (Panacea) recommends the EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM. This costs about $500, so there goes the $200 price difference. Of course, you'll need a decent memory card and I recommend a genuine Sandisk Ultra II (60X) or Extreme III (133X) of at least 1GB - preferable 2 GB - for either camera. Lexar is another excellent card supplier and they have the "Professional" 133X as well as the Platinum 80X to choose from. Both Lexar and Sandisk come with image recovery software and limited lifetime warranties. Nikon recommends these brands, as well as Toshiba and Panasonic. The manual states, "Operation is not guaranteed with other makes of cards." ..... The February 2007 issue of Popular Photography has an article where they compared the top 10 MP DSLR's, including the D80 and XTi. The Nikon D80 was BEST in Image Quality, Control and System Flexibility and the Canon Rebel XTi (400D) tied with the D80 for best in System Flexibility, but won no other categories. http://www.popphoto.com/cameras/3569/10m... ..... Here's another reference from outside the photographic press. Consumer reports compared the Nikon D80, Canon Rebel XTi and Sony Alpha. Personally, I'd say that the Nikon came out on top here, also. It beats the Sony in "noise-free ISO" with an acceptable rating at ISO 1600 (kind of optimistic, I think...) compared to the Sony's ISO 400. It beats the Canon (in my opinion) by having a spot meter that the Canon does not offer. http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/electronics-computers/news-electronics-computers/november-2006/shootout-10-megapixel-digital-slr-cameras-11-06/overview/0611_digital-slr-shoot-out.htm .....

Since you do not mention your level of experience or how you intend to use your camera, I would suggest a bit more research of your own. Personally, I use a Nikon D80, but instead of relying on suggestions of others, you can go to this site to compare and review cameras and equipment: http://www.betterphoto.com/digital/camer... http://www.betterphoto.com/reviews.asp With all the comparisons and reviews, I am sure you will find something that fits your needs and is within your price range.

I would pick another two to compare. The Fuji and the Canon do not have an image stabilizer nor aperture/shutter priority You are not comparing 10X optical zoom with 10X, but 10X versus 6X optical zoom. I have 2 point and shoots, and each one has shutter/aperture priority. I never knew how much I would use that feature. And for 10X optical zoom, you would certainly want an image stabilizer.

Rowena Originally Answered: Will the Sigma Lens 70-200 APO AF work on a Canon 5d Mark II?
Typically, Sigma makes each lens in 5 different versions, to fit Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Pentax, and Sony bodies. The lens optics may be the same, but the mounting ring will be tailored for each brand. So if the lens states "Sigma" mount, you can be assured it will not fit a Canon. The reason the lens is priced so low is that there are not many Sigma bodies in use. If the lens were a Canon or Nikon mount, it would certainly be selling for $600 or more.
