I agree with this post! I was looking at the picture options, and occasionally I thought the 1st one was better and occasionally I liked the 2nd one better. I found the 2nd one was brighter most of the time- be that a good thing or a bad thing seemed to depend on the picture. Both "cameras" can take a decent picture when the settings are understood and played with I'm sure. Would I want to use either for once-in-a-lifetime pictures? Probably not. Would I use either of them (once I learned the settings) to take regular, every day pictures? Sure. Would I use either of them to take pictures at Disney? Well it would depend on what I wanted from the pictures. Great pictures of once-in-a-lifetime opportunities? I don't want either. Pictures from the upteenth trip? Sure, why not. That's my opinion.
