Oh, and then there’s the price tag factor.

Decisions, decisions…

  1. Hi Nrl.

    If i were you, I’ll save up and get something YOU KNOW YOU’RE GONNA LOVE AND WOULD NOT EVEN THINK OF GETTING A NEW ONE IN NEXT FEW YEARS.

    You should also consider the Canon G11. Or just get a DSLR.

  2. Bringing a DSLR’s pretty inconvenient. Which is why I narrowed down to having a micro third. Olympus Pen is definitely too steep, but a “would love to have” kinda thing, and the G11’s kinda pricey too.

    If I were to get something which is a cross between the Olympus Pen & the G11, and still be between budget, it’d be the Samsung EX1. Yay or nay?

  3. Um, actually if I were you, I would seriously consider getting a micro third. Yes, it’s pricey but you have the option to change lens and that kind of thing. Also, if you’re getting a EX1, you’ll probably going to be damn-i-want-a-new-camera in like 2 years. SO GET SOMETHING YOU KNOW YOU WILL DEFINITELY BE IN LOVE WITH FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS.

    eh. but i just realized micro third lenses are like crazy expensive. and i don’t think there’s an option to be third-party lens.

    Check out the reviews at http://www.cameralabs.com/. They have the best reviews, ever.

  4. Yeah I rely on that as well as CNet for reviews. I’m definitely looking more at having a micro third rather than a DSLR cos quality can be on par depending on model, and convenience/practicality of lugging it around is definitely there. But price tag’s a big issue for me here so I’m leaning towards the EX1 or maybe a Canon G11. Ahhh decisions!
