^^ Having spent thousands for camera, few 100's for diffuser won't make a dent... At least up until buying diffuser, this would help.

Yeah, using makeshift arrangement works too if it's the need of time.

Is this what you guys are talking ?

Guys, I have been looking for a non DSLR cam with as large sensor as possible and f-stop at least f/2.8 . He doesn't need interchangable lens cam, a fixed 4x - 8x zoom lens will do. Currently I am having a Lumix DMC TZ10, but he is not happy with its low light performance(due to small sensor and highest f-stop only 3.3). I offered to buy a D5100, but he discarded it cause "dslrs' are bulky". He has good knowledge of photography and is a owner of Nikon FM2 mechanical SLR, and two lenses since 1998. Now he needs a cam with above features. His main interests are low light/night, portrait and landscape. What do you suggest? Budget 25k.

Or, would I open a thread for it?

comparing Canon SX150IS with any other, would you guys like to suggest any ?
I have Sony DSC-H100 in mind, though a friend from another thread didn't encouraged.

@faun-- I'd say D3200, based on its build quality. IQ on both is similar(i.e.pretty good). Both work fine for a entry level camera.
I would still spend a couple of extra grands and buy D5100 which has D7000's sensor , articulated screen , some cool shooting mode presets,and fits better in my hand.

But hey, dont you have D7000 already?

D5200 is comming very soon for competing 650D ...and D5100 is the actual competitor for 550D and 600D

U dont judge a DSLR by just its ISO range...for example A D3200 can beat nikon D7000 in pic clarity and ISO but it cant beat it in built,buttons,grip,and features :)

get 600D if u have only 2 choices ...else u can get D5100 or wait for D5200

D3200 is still better as per this link.
Nikon D3200 vs Canon EOS 600D
These are the only two choices. I will ask if D5100 can be considered.

I got Marumi circular polarizer for prime lens but for 18-105 Marumi circular polarizer is out of stock.

How are Nisi and Hoya ?

D3200 or any D3xxx range is a basic DSLR...D5xxx or 550D or 600D are a level above....they may have better feature...better grip and some features which u may miss later :D

Hoya is much more popular then Nisi ...but NISI is also a known brand....any of them...

Ok, then 600D it is.


Between Marumi and Hoya, which one is better ? I need a circular polarizer 67mm for 18-105 lens.

Get Hoya multicoated one (not normal Hoya)..There are many fake hoya filters in the market so buy from genuine seller.
