best digital choise?
Hi, finally after having the Canon Rebel + Sygma fisheye stolen I'm about to buy a more practical and cheaper equipment, with the same internet efficiency. For what Ive read in forums and in specialized sites, differently from the SLR cameras, the digital ones manage to make panoramics more easily because the do it from just two circular photos. Only thing Im sure is that Ill use the fisheye FC-E9 lens with a digital camera.
The big question is, whats the best camera in terms of cost-efficiency for this lens? Searching for info in sites, Ive think that a good choice would be the coolpix 8400 or 8800, but the 8800 needs three circular photos, not only two. Hence, Ive concluded that the 8400 would be a better choice, but this camera seems to be a bit awkward and outdated its even quite hard to find it in online stores. Browsing this frum, Ive noticed users using the Canon Powershot Pro S3 that seems to be a competent and more modern cmera that accomplish the same task, but I havent seen in Agnos site any recommendation on this camera model for this job.
My question is, would I get the same functional result with both cameras (doing two circular shot)? What would be other camera recommendations for the FC-E9 lens, independently of resolution my objective is internet publishing that doesn`t need that much resolution.
