I am seriously looking at the Canon T2i but am thinking the Canon 60D with the rotating LCD will work better for my purpose.Is this the only model with movable LCD?Anything else im overlooking between the 2?

Nope that's the only DSLR from anybody with movable LCD.

To the OP, are your photos grainy or pixelated? This is an important difference. If they are pixelated at 125% check the resolution that you're using when you take the photos. Maybe that's your issue.

And it's not the camera but the photographer that takes amazing photos. The camera is just a tool. Check out Ansel Adams for reference.

quit pixel peeping!

FYI: 15% off point and shoot cameras at NewEgg today (up to $50).

That makes the LX5 $409 shipped and the S95 $352 shipped.

Good deals. Too bad they only have the LX5 in white.

the price on the LX5 came down pretty quickly.  very nice.

i just ordered one yesterday for my wife, looking forward to making some comparisons to my s90.

i went with the s90 since, for me, a pocket camera needs to be literally that.  she carries her p&S camera (currently SD880) in her purse, so the slightly larger form factor of the LX5 isn't an issue.

Those are absolutely killer deals!

Be aware of limitations of shot length with Canon DSLRs used for video. Might not be what you need for concert shooting.

FWIW, S95 is $366 and LX5 is $420 shipped at Amazon.  Not quite as good as the NewEgg deals, but not bad.

Thanks for the size comparison. I only have 1 decent camera shop near me, and everyone that works there is like a used car salesperson so I avoid it at all cost.

Looks to me that the S95 is the way to go for me.

I just bought the Sony dsc hx5v and i took some very good pictures with it.Im loving the Sweep Panorama mode.


I took this camera last week.. I like it very much, Nice screen size..Great Quality and zooms in quite well for size. The camera is very portable.

I had a Cannon G9 and wanted to replace it due to the lack of true low light capabilities and it's small processor. I looked to replace it with a DSLR but found the size to be to large to carry with all my audio gear. I wanted the better chip in a small package, I found and looked at many of the 4/3 rds cameras (Olympus PL2/PL1, Panasonic, Sony).

I ended up purchasing the Sony NEX-5, amazing low light capabilities, can use different lenses, 1080i video, a point and shoot or manual overrides, small package. I am very happy with my choice, it delvers the quality I sought, compares well with my friends T2i, great depth of field and details. The downside I have encountered is size, an inch deeper than my G9 with the 18-55 lens, LCD is a finger print magnet, not many lenses available now but I can use my older Minolta lenses.
