Hello Guys, im stuck on which camera to get ....
It was going to be D60, D100 or S2 but having booked a holiday i need all the money i can get now so im coming down the ladder abit!
I've noticed the F707 has become very popular lately and the quality of shots coming in through the F707 are of a very high standard.
On the otherhand we have the Nikon Coolpix 5700 for near enough the same price, it seems a very smart looking camera too....
Also, Sony have just announced the F717 will be released next month which means the F707 will decrease reasonably in price.
Another issue with the F707 is the dark left side, this is proving abit of a disadvantage as in some shots i've looked at it's clearly visible ....
I need help guys, what do you think?
All the best

How often have I say this: The Coolpix is much better than any Sony digital-camera. The 5700 got several awards and had won every race in Europe here. Just check some local testmagazines, specialist on cameras.

Thanks for the response guys, im edging closer to the 5700,
C72:- The S602Z only has 3.1 million pixels and i've also used one, it's not too clever
Craigy, lol ... but i want to take the digital away with me to get all the sexy ladies on the beach

Could someone put here some CP5700 pics? I'd like to see with my own eyes how good they actually are. I've used search system on the front page and it showed only a couple of pictures, so I'd like to see some other pics too.

I was in Tenerife at the same time as you. Flew out 20th August and back 3rd September. Did not get to the strip though - as an old married man, my experiences of waking up at 8am on a pavement in Magaluf are but a distant memory. Flew JMC 752s, FCLC and FCLB. Saw a fantastic sunset on the return flight with Teide poking through the clouds, but we were belted in and my camera was in the overhead bins
(apologising for being totally off topic here)
To each their own I guess, but I really love my F707. I have always been a loyal Sony customer since they make very sound electronic products. I've always had and continue to have good luck with Sony.
Not to mention that the Memory Stick media is cross-compatible with a host of other Sony products including PDAs, computers, digital video cameras...
But here's how I see it. If you give me a D60 and you give Andy Hunt, Glenn Alderton or Joe Pries a dinky 2 megapixel camera, I can almost guarantee that those other guys will end up with a much nicer photograph than mine.
If you aren't a good photographer, no amount of money spent on a camera will make your pics better. Just get a camera and go take some pictures.
