I've been overloaded with information about digital cameras and have almost reached the point of madness. After weeks of trawling around shops and websites I've narrowed my choice of camera to one of the above, but which one should I buy? I've owned a number of minolta cameras over the years and always found them excellent in terms of build and picture quality. The F100 seems to do all that I need and seems to be more flexible than many of the simple compact cameras. But all I seem to hear about is how poor the battery life is - how much of a problem is this and is this camera any worse and the rest? More of a concern is the lack of an AF illumination bulb, I want to be able to snap away to my hearts content - occasionally this might be in a nightclub (always a really good test of a camera) with quite dark conditions. Will this camera still be able to focus or should I be looking elsewhere. This brings me to the Sony, reviews seem to vary but generally they are pretty decent all round. It has the AF bulb but doesn't seem to be as manual as the minolta, am I going to outgrow the camera as my digital skills improve and end up buying again within a year? Anyone out there had experience of using either camera, and how did they fare - both generally and in difficult lighting conditions?
