  1. Wow! This is such a wonderful list! Actually I am thinking of getting a new point and shoot camera and I can’t decide what to get between the Nikon Coolpix S8000 and the Canon S95. But I am getting more confused when I saw some of the cameras you posted here… It’s getting more harder to decide which one to get. But I might get the S8100…

  2. I mostly Shoot with Nikon Cameras, but lately I’ve been impressed by the Cannons… I’d like to add a point and shot camera to my gear bag. Which is better Nikon or Cannon?
