Canon S410 Vs Sony DSC-P72

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Anthony Martin, Apr 21, 2004.

  1. I am looking for a decent digicam, and I am currently between the
    Canon S410 and the Sony DSC-P72. I have used a Canon S200 before, and
    the main problem I had with it was that, regardless of how much light
    there was inside, I couldn't take indoor photos without having to use
    the flash. I played with the manual ISO settings without success.
    Another problem with the S200 was short battery capacity. Did Canon
    improve on these issues with the S410? Also, how does the Sony DSC-P72
    compare with the S410? Your opinion will be appreciated if you have
    used any of these two digicams.

  2. I don't know about the Sony, but I have a Canon S400 and take indoor
    pictures without flash with a fair amount of success. For indoor shots
    without flash, I switch to manual mode ( a simple twist of a dial ) where I
    have it preset for no flash, ISO400 and AF Lamp disabled. In a well lighted
    room, it works very well. When the lights are low, I have to hold my breath
    or lean against something to compensate for the slow shutter.

    The S400 and S410 are nearly identical, by the way.
