With so many different models and specifications for point & shoot digital cameras, we narrowed it down to similar-sized simple, everyday PnS compacts with a price tag of about S$500 that can shoot at around 10 - 14MP resolutions and had a maximum of 7x optical zoom.
And the Winner Is...
The Panasonic DMC-FX75 might not be as attractive as the Canon IXUS 300 HS, but its high convenience of use more than makes up for that. Firstly, the camera is outfitted with a good mixture of touch and physical controls which makes shooting a breeze. Secondly, the DMC-FX75 comes with an iA mode that keeps hassles to a bare minimum. And when it comes to performance, its quick shutter/AF speeds, accurate AF, impressive clarity and average noise levels put it slightly ahead of the IXUS 300 HS.
