help comparing different types of cameras
Aug 15, 2012

Hi,

I'm trying to decide between a super-zoom camera (the Canon G1X) and a regular DSLR (The Nikon 3100). I'm not sure how to compare them as they are different kinds of cameras, but all I'm concerned about really is image quality. I'd like to take sharp pictures with great color--I DO NOT post-process so the jpegs need to be what is judged. CAn anyone help with such a comparison?Also, I mainly shoot on the auto mode. I know this is ridiculous, but with a 10 month old, I don't have much time to make adjustments. Just need to get the shot and want a lovely one. (My friend has a Nikon d40, takes beautiful shots on auto mode. He never changes it either.)
thanks.
AJ

Nikon D40
