Hi everyone,

I am new on here as i have a few questions i was hoping you could help me with. I have Very little exp with cameras and am unsure weather to buy a digital such as the Sony HX20V or a CSR.

Out of the two compacts i have mentioned, the NEX F3 and Nikon J1, which would be better for a novice, as i doubt i would even use some features on either of the cameras... I just want the best picture for minimal effort.

hi and welcome. both the cameras you are looking at have interchangeable lenses, is that what you want. you maybe better off looking at a canon sx40 or g1. depends what your expecting the results to be

Im not sure, i was only looking at them as they seem to be the 'new thing to buy' as many manufacturers seem to be making the compact system cameras.

The G1 looks good but a bit off my price range, my maximum would be 450 and thats pushing it.
