I'm buying a compact digital camera for travel usage by a person not very good with computers. The purpose is to shoot pictures better than with a phone and nothing else, meaning that it should be cheap enough (less than $100) to not worry if it gets some sand on it or gets stolen. I managed to narrow the choice to two candidates: Sony w810 vs Nikon L31.
The main difference seems to be the sensor: CCD vs CMOS.
- Which sensor would you recommend for this purpose?
- Which camera would you recommend?
