FAQ - What Camera to Buy?

I have attempted to forewarn you about the almost certain disappointments of the "Advanced Photo System" or APS. But, if you must somehow, at least increase your chances for some success with a Nikon. I purchased a Canon Elph. Yes, sorry; I succumbed to the great marketing campaign. So I have used it extensively and as a direct consequence of such experience I can comfortably badmouth it.

Nikon Nuvis S
 
Nikon Nuvis S 2000
When your camera's power is on, the sleek and thin Nuvis S protective lens cover opens to reveal the powerful 3X 22.5-66mm f/5.2-7.5 Nikon Zoom lens (28-82.5mm equivalent in 35mm format); 6 elements in 6 groups, aspherical multi-coated and exclusive Nikon Close-Range-Correction (CRC) technology for up close sharp, clear superior images over those of others.

..
New design. A 2X Nikon Zoom lens with 5 elements in 5 groups lens. Focal length range of 24-48mm (30-60mm equivalent in 35mm format), aperture f/4.5-8.2. Features Anytime flash, Auto flash, Flash cancel, Slow sync and Red eye reduction modes. You can select from 30 titles in 12 languages to be printed on the back of each picture, date and time.

APS Recommendation:
  • If you must have a truly tiny convenient APS get the Nikon Nuvis S. 
  • If you want a more professional APS with better lenses, look into the SLR APS. But remember they have been discontinued.
  • For about the same price of an APS you can keep most conveniences and move up to at least a compact Point & Shoot 35mm camera; just a bit bigger but much better armed in terms of both negative size, lenses and integrated flashes, most of them now with red eye reduction capability and variable power.

Outstanding! Thanks so much for the overview and the recommendations. I enjoyed reading about each class or group you presented. I especially liked your closing comment as that's what it's all about for me. Thanks again! Larry
