Dad's advice for buying a camera 4

Was thinking could maybe go for the pentax x70, or now looking at the canon SX10IS. What do you think?


I can't find a lot about the Canon but the specifications sound good.

The Pentax zoom shot on the Steve's review is absolutely amazing. Wish my camera was that good. The main thing Steve says that’s bad is that the lens is a bit wobbly. Not sure if that is bad in the long term. And that the battery life is short. I think you'd want to get a second battery—buy authentic—when you get it. Add that onto the price. And always keep one fully charged and then you never run out.

I'd be handling both of them in the shops and decide which one feels best for you. How do they compare in price? What sort of battery does the Canon take? How does the weight compare? The Pentax seems to be fairly small for what it does. Seems like my sort of camera except for the wobbly lens. If it was for me, I'd probably buy three batteries and then never run out.

Anyway, I'm going to bed. Tell me what you decide.
