I'm going on a travel-light trip to Asia and am looking for a point and shoot as close to $200 as possible
I would really like 1080p video recording

Harvey norman has 2 that fits - which one is better?

Note i'm not in a rush nor absoultely need one, we will have a galaxy s4 and iphone 5s. To get an extra point and shoot is to get us

Optical zoom camera
Optical zoom video
optical stabilization
Better flash
Slightly better night shots

That's all i can think of
So not really rssential but would be nice ... But i gather $200 is abit tight ... But you never kneo with all the sales!

Unfortunately they are not friends with cheap budget stuff

In fact google with these 2 models and the word review turned up blank!

Want to save $100 and still want a great point and shoot camera?

Canon Powershot A2500. Should be able to buy this for $100 from major electronic retailers in NZ.

It does 1080P Video.

JB HiFi currently has it on special for $88. So does Harvey Norman and Good Guys

Edit - Sorry It does 720P video only. Still at $88 this is a great point and shoot camera. Takes excellent photos.

joker97: have you got one? all the internet specs say 720p only


Just updated my above post. 720P only. I was reading DSE's spec which listed it as 1080P. I recommended it to one of my family members who bought it last week as they are going on a trip. Rechargeable battery and recharger is also part of the package.

DiG!C 4 Image Processor -The DiG!C 4 Image Processor makes possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, Full HD video and Face Detection Self-timer. New, more powerful noise reduction algorithms also provide improved low-light capture
