I'm after a second digital camera to take on holiday. I already have an Olympus Mju 700 but it's lacking a couple of things which I want the replacement to have...
- Not very good indoors, or in low light conditions (even using night modes).
- Not a great flash - often bleaches out photo (turn it off and it's blurry).
- Because of the curved + top-heavy body shape, you can't balance it on anything to take a photo using timer mode (and i want to avoid carrying a tripod)
- No viewfinder.
The Olympus is going to my OH (as his first camera! - so he'll be wow'ed whatever he gets), and we'd like to buy another camera to compensate for the above. Ultimately we'll have both with us at all times.
Reviews of the Ixus are good, and the 850 I can get for £146 with an SD card (the next model up has no viewfinder)
Has anyone got this camera who can tell me if it will be better in the points above than the one I have, or can anyone recommend alternatives? I've looked at loads of posts about cameras but i'm finding it hard because I want something quite specific (without spending more than £180 ish)
