Hey wait!!! I am sorry.. but you have much knowledge I guess, what you want to get from which sources, you know much about that. Then why don't you use google your self ???
General tip (Not for you only): Don't tell how some one could help you. I believe that a man (who can tell his helper what the resources a helper needs to help him) doesn't need any kind of help actually...
This is not offensive so please don't think it to be.
thanks for ur input KA . . i appreciate it .
i m not one of those irrational kids whos bum is always on fire so i didnt mind anything u said at all
@ why didnt i research myself . .well the answer is , i DID but , google doesnt let me hold the cam in my hand and take pictures . . i have spent quite somtime in reading about stuff on the internet .but the thing is .. what i wanted from this forum is , EXPERIENCE of the people who may have used the specific product . . there is a lot of difference between reading a text book and learning somthing by doing somthing urself in the real world. .
Answering your questions
G-Lens or Carl Zeiss
- Sony developed its own G-Lens to go further in the specs not depending on CZ. Currently G-Lens have the advantage over CZ because of the the speed of focusing( thats what i wanted to hear if i have to opt for sony )
All other specs are similar in positives and negatives. It's like war, one makes some thing better and the other one makes even more better so it gets continued as it is.
Also you shouldn't consider this as you are willing to get a compact camera for your home/personal use and not a professional one. And in a compact one, practically you would not feel any difference between the two.
Canon or Sony?
- Canon.... Why? I always found Canan the better one over the Sony's.
CMOS Sensor and BionZ Imaging Processor
-Both are different and work together in a Sony Camera. You might want to read about both http://www.sony.jp/products/overseas/contents/english/handycam/HD_Black_Exmor_CMOS_Sensor_BIONZ/
what about the DIGIC 4 processor . . (if u have personaly used both the bionz and DIGIC 4 processor cameras )
Features to be in a good camera
-The ones posted by deffury above in post#7 are good.
Warning: mostly cameras tell on their packs about the Digital Zoom very prominently but the Optical Zoom specification is hidden somewhere. Forget to note the Digital Zoom, it's nothing. Only get with better Optical Zoom.
