    Which camera is best if you have to take lots of wide-angle pics? Looking to stay under $300 :) I don't mind having a wide-angle attachment, I just want to know if there's any particular camera that is better at it than others :dunno:

    the canon s70 has a 28mm equivilent at the widest, which is pretty good.. but it's at least $400 (but you get 7mp)

    The A75 has a wideangle lense adapter, I forget what it's called right now, but that might be an option as well. The A75 is $200 or less depending on where you go.

    Would you consider using a camera with the ability to stich instead?

    I know the A75 has that feature, how many other models have it?

    Stitching won't give you the slight distortion a true wideangle lens would give you in some circumstances, which may be desired.
