Hello all, and a quick question on a gorgeous sunny Thursday afternoon here in London. I'm shopping for a compact camera for my father-in-law, and I reckon last year's DMC-SZ7 is great value at £106. I played with the SZ3 and SZ9, and the SZ3 just feels "budget", and the SZ9 is lovely, but £179. Before I pull the trigger on the SZ7, does anyone have any other recommendations? I'm looking at either Panasonic or Canon, and a budget of around £100 (give or take). Thanks!!
HiI received the Olympus SZ31 for Christmas and have been really happy with it so far. I am v new to photography though so I am not sure I'm getting the best out of the camera. For example, I've taken some landscape shots and used scene>landscape mode but because the sky was bright and there were shadows a lot of the picture appeared dark. I used shadow adjustment after I'd taken the shot and that seemed to improve things a little but it was still quite dark. As I'd had this problem the next...
