Thinking of a new camera

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

 

I'm am currently researching a new camera to replace a Kodak EasyShare 4730. I want something with at least 10X zoom, while the wife wants to be able to record decent video as well. For pricing, I've narrowed it down to 2 choices: The Kodak EasyShare Z1015IS (new $219) and the FujiFilm S8100fd (factory refurbished for $164). The Kodak does HD video which may be a plus. But some reviews have not been kind. With either camera, I'd like to take nice photos of my son as he romps around. Also take some good photos on trips.

 

I was wondering if anyone on the forum had experience with either or could suggest a camera.

 

Thanks.

You can get it for around $230 new or $200 refurbished.

 

I've seen quite a few good deals on refurbed cameras. Would you recommend that?

As long as it comes with a good warranty. I'd look for at least 90 days.

I also recommend canon products. There're top notch.

I too was going to recommend Canon. I have a Powershot right now and LOVE it! I've used a Fuji in the past and they aren't bad either, but Canon's seem to just work better.

I've been looking at the PowerShot sx200IS. What does anyone think of that camera?

I don't have any personal experience with it, but from what I've read it looks pretty good.
