I want a new digital camera. Amazon has the Sony DSC-HX5V for
. Is it worth it?
Some reviews for the dsc-hx5v complain about "soft" pictures. What does that mean? Is that something one would only notice zooming in lots? How would that compare to my old camera, a circa 2007 Canon Powershot SD1000? (I'm guessing a lot better?)
Another option would be the Canon Powershot 300 HS, but I'm more than a little sold on geotagging. I've been comparing the two on snapsort
and the canon is rated much higher, but the differences seem to be things I don't care much about like "Really small", "thin", and "high speed movies". But then again, CHDK
is super handy. I would rather also not spend $100 more for the Canon SX230 (even though it would seem like the natural solution, with GPS) when there doesn't seem like a huge huge difference between the that and the DSC-HX5V; still, I could be way off and that $100 be worth every penny.
So I'm a little conflicted about what camera I should buy. I want a decent or better-than-decent picture camera for around $200. I would really like gps on it, but I guess it's not a complete dealbreaker. What camera do you think I should get?
