    A friend of mine is wanting a good point and shoot digital camera that is great on resolution and low on noise when shooting scenery shots.

    Any suggestions on a good point and shoot without having to step into the DSLR realm?

    Not really.

    If they've decided that they are quite happy to lose the flexibility of the SLR in return for convenience and 'carryability' it's unlikely that they'll want to mess around with RAW, even though most of us here find it easy and natural.

    Calling people silly just because they don't want to get involved in what are, to them, unnecessary technicalities is itself rather silly, not to mention elitist and unproductive.

    why are you guys so eager to jump at each others throat? i guess bifurcator ment as a joke and silly is not a word with a really bad conotation.

    on topic: even though it is a p&s having raw will eventually prove to be an advantage. i was kinda disappointed with my fuji p&s due to lack of raw capability so i went slr

    You might think that but not everyone sees that sort of thing as humour.

    And, unfortunately, when people who come out with elitist c**p like that it puts others off and makes them feel they don't belong here.


    My post was intended to reassure people not to jump at anyone's throat.

    On topic: Having RAW may prove to be an advantage. Some people would never consider doing anything that required RAW and so making that a requirement would unnecessarily limit their choice and might prevent them getting other features they would find useful.

    It would be best if OP determined whether his friend would ever make use of the feature before mandating it.

    It's why he's on my ignore list. I hope he didn't say anything too bad this time.

    Oh, good grief. Calm down there, buddy. The guy was making a silly joke. He even put a smiley face on it.

    As far as P&S cameras go, they have advanced so much in the last few years that it is hard to go wrong with some of the upper end Canons or Nikons, Olympus, etc....

    Do any point and shoots have RAW? Moglex seems a wee bit sensitive. It's ok man. You would probably break down crying if you saw some of these threads.
