compact versus sub-compact
by zachdude - 8/1/07 4:42 PM
I'm looking to buy a digital camera and I'm not sure whether to buy a subcompact or just a regular compact. I know that compacts have more manual controls and higher optical zoom than subcompacts but neither of these are important to me. The only thing I care about is quality of picture, and I figure that perhaps the compact's lenses are better since they are bigger than that of subcompact cameras. But otherwise, I would prefer the subcompact since it's smaller.
So, bottom line: forgetting about all the other features, is the picture of compact cameras significantly better than that of sub-compact cameras (assuming that I will not use the manual modes)?
Any camera recommendations?
Thanks for your help!
