    Default help me choose a new camera?

    Sony - Cyber-Shot 14.1-Megapixel Digital Camera - Black - W350 Black

    or

    Canon - PowerShot 10.0-Megapixel Digital Camera - Black - SX120 IS

    what i like about the sony is its smaller and it captures HD video what i dont like about it is it uses a recharable lithium ion battery and not AA's so if im hunting and it goes dead im SOL if i cant find an outlet.

    what i like about the canon is it does have 10x zoom which is nice but its video is lacking and i feel its just a little bulky but it does use AA's so thats a plus

    i already have a canon eos rebel xti so its way to big im wanting a nice pocket camera.

    it will be used hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, dirt biking, snowmobiling, skiing, just everywhere so which one do you think is better

    My camera uses the recharge type batteries. I have two pair and always have a backup pair with me. I'm lucky in that the power pack also handles a canister with 8 AA batteries if all else fails. The downside of all this is that it is a DSLR with A big battery pack attached to it. For what you want to use the camera for I would go with the smaller one and buy a backup or two so I never ran out of power on a trip.

    Hope that made sense,

    Check out this thread: nice camera for fishing? . You may find yourself looking at a few more options than you have listed. Good luck in your search.
