cameras for low light situations?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Joseph O'Brien, Feb 11, 2004.

  1. Well, our FujiFilm Finepix 2800z just died, so I'm in the market for a
    new digital camera. The only major problem we had with it (other than
    the fact that it only lasted 18 months)was that it didn't handle
    low-light situations very well. We always had to make a compromise
    between a blurry image or one washed out by the on-camera flash.
    There was little middle ground. "Low light," by the way, was anything
    *not* shot outside during the day. From what I've read, this is
    typical of consumer grade digital cameras.

    I'm willing to do without a long zoom, high resolution, etc. We never
    shot above 1.5 megapixels anyway. It would be general-use... family
    pictures, etc.

    Can anyone make a recommendation? I'd like to spend $150-$250, new or

    Got a decent old film camera? If so it will
    take high iso film, and buy a cheap BenQ
    film scanner on ebay, I did and it is great.
    Mine was $200.
