Thumbs up Sony F828

We recently upgrade from our Sony S70 to the Sony F828 and are VERY PLEASED with this camera. I do have to agree with Pahaska post (#74 ) that this is not very useful as a “spy camera”, but it is definitely a CAMERA, not an electronics box with a lens attached to it. After 3+ years with the S70 and about 5000 pictures the two features that I really missed from my 35mm where the zoom ring and a reasonable auto focus speed. The F828 does both of these very well. In addition, I have use it to take pictures of documents, instruction sheets, and comics to email social commentary to our kids (usually our HP scanner activity) and it did very well on these tasks. My wife would be happy if I just stay satisfied with this camera for about 7 years ( maybe 10,000 pictures).

I'm also using a Sony 828 and found that an $8.00 closeup lens gave me better focus latitude in macro mode for small parts and print. I'm also impressed with the burst mode as well as the utility of voice recording on the images for documentary purposes.

Camera purchase

Just bought a Canon Power Shot A95 -5.0. Looks like it has a lot of settings so I can play around with it like a 35mm. Liked the Canon Rebel but didn't want to shell out the $ but it would have been nice to use the lens from my other Canon.

I used a Sony Mavica 75 and loved it. Went out west and couldn't see the display screen outdoors. Too much light washed it out. I have since bought a Sony DSC-S85 4.1 meg. It does a great job. I still use my old Minolta SLR X-700 manual 35mm when I really need a quality picture. Mostly because I am comfortable with it and I can scan in a 4x6 pic and get teriffic reslolution for the web. I can still make a 16x20 if I really get that special one with my 35 and I am not comfortable that I could do that with the digital.

I use a Canon Digital Rebel...awesome camera. I also own an old Sony Cybershot.

As an astrophotographer, I use several cooled astro CCD cameras, most notably an SBIG STL-6303E, though you'd be surprised at how good the Digital Rebel is for shooting the stars!

Kodak CX7330

Kodak CX7330 3.2 mpixel

IMO camera is just OK and the software is not worth installing.


Would not recommend.

I picked the Minolta Z2. It has great micro and macro capability and features an optical zoom from 38mm to 380mm. I deemed it one of the better solutions to a mid-range price factor and have found it to be an excellent and simple point and shoot. I keep a skylight 1A / UV filter on the lens at all times and have the wide angle lens as well. Include the best battery charger with the highest miliamp batterys available and throw in a 128 to 256 memory card and the sky's the limit.

We just purchased a Canon PowerShot SD800 IS, ELPH.

I am pretty amazed at the quality. Has a 2.5" view screen, which is very nice.

A small camera with lots of features.

It is interesting that this thread is 3 years old. How many of the people who posted the first time still have the same camera? I have a Canon Powershot S3 that I got from Santa a few months ago.

The only reason we don't still have ours, is it got caught in the Bermuda Triangle, and disappeared. We now have a Polaroid i533, 5.0mp,12x optical zoom, etc, etc. The amazing thing is the price, it is 1/3 the price of the HP 320 we lost, with tons more features, and it is still easy to point and shoot if you are a photographic ludite like me. It also can be set so it takes near professional quality photos.

This thread is indeed old. I wonder if I already posted on it...
I have had a Nikon Coolpix 885 ( no longer made) for several years, and am very pleased with it.
Good points: picture quality and colors, small and light, very rugged, rechargeable battery is excellent quality, uses CF cards for picture memory, has a very deep menu with many options but is intuitive to use for snapshots
Bad points: slow to save picture to card, flash very close to lens ( red eye prone) compact size and light weight makes it easy to blur a picture if one does not have a steady hand.

I use a small tripod and the camera's self times for pictures that require a long exposure, or if the picture is very important to me.
