Nikon 5700, Dimage 7hi or Canon G5

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Raymond Kasprzak, Aug 6, 2003.

  1. I am having a difficult time deciding which of these cameras to purchase.
    Camera will be used for portrait, landscape and some wild life photography.
    Available light with low noise performance is also a priority. Which one
    would you choose?

  2. Thanks for your input. Right now I am trying to decide whether the 8x zoom
    on the 5700 is a decent trade off for the better low light focusing of the
    G5.

    You have to prioritize your wish list; some are contradictory or at least at
    odds, e.g. wildlife (zoom) v landscape (wide). low light conflicts with
    zooms and teleconverters. sorry you will have to work it out yourself,
    unless you bite the bullet and get a dSLR... then you get into the
    Canon/Nikon religious war...

    For me the zoom and teleconverter are great for the action/wildlife pics I
    enjoy. examples with a 5700 can be located at
    http://www.analyticinvestor.com/alford/ most of the foal pictures are at the
    long end of the zoom. the
    http://www.analyticinvestor.com/alford/tc-15ed.htm shows what can be
    accomplished with the teleconverter.

    For me the zoom and vSLR made the decision. I am very happy with the 5700.
    Most that have selected a camera for their uses will also be happy with
    their choice, btw...

    of course, the data and information required to make the decision is likely
    located at www.dpreview.com amongst others.

    good luck

  4. Well I ended up going with the 5700. The "cons" listed for the G5 review at
    www. dpreview.com bothered me more than the "cons" for the 5700. Also it
    seems that looking at other reviews that the G5 is more comparable to the
    5400 than the 5700.
    The $100.00 rebate from Nikon also affected my decision.

    My first digital camera is arriving tomorrow, ita a Fuji s602z, about half
    the price of your choices.
    I was looking at those cameras too, definitively the Minolta 7hi is the
    best, enjoy it.

    None! Remember, as soon as the summer is over, all of these manufacturers
    will be launching their new models, and so by waiting a month or two you
    could end up getting a better product for the same price. And just look at
    the new Fuji s7000 - magnificent 12 mpix output images, 6 times zoom on a
    great lens, and it looks better than any of the cameras you're considering!
    At only 799$!!!

    Hi Rosita, I got my 7HI a couple of weeks ago. :) Do you have an online
    gallery with 7HI pics and settings I can browse through? Thanks, Weng Leong.
