    Default Digital camera help needed please

    I am planning on buying the other half a new camera, and I have the option of these two

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-S107...8646536&sr=8-1

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-CyberSh...8646578&sr=1-1

    I was wondering which one was the best out of those two to go for.

    Vehicle : Vectra C Hatch

    Trim : Exclusive Plus Pack

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi Z19DTH

    Year : 57

    Mileage : 100k+

    Have a look at this site http://www.dpreview.com/

    It may be down to memory cards - what else do you have etc - the Samsung uses fairly common SD cards, the Sony uses it's own memory stick. Sony has image stabilisation, so good in low light, Samsung has face detection which is good for getting the face (hopefully the subject's face) in focus rather than the background for those quick snaps. I don't think you'd be overly disappointed by either.

    sony also has smile and face detection, memstick duos are cheap enough now i bought a 4 gig one for psp other week 15 quid.

    I see where vx is coming from but i wouldnt sacrifice quality for the sake of a memory card...

    just ask yourself sony has the alpha dslr, what pro camera's do samsung have??

    im not biased to sony in anyway by the way as im a canon man :P

    cheers guys, I've ordered the sony one, the memory card type doesnt bother me as I have a couple of mem stick duo's that I can use. Its only for the missus so doesnt have to have all the bells and whistles on.
