    What are you looking for in your DC?

    1) zoom?
    2) Speed?
    3) movie mode?
    4) size?
    5) Wide angle?
    6) etc.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Is TS interested in the details of photography or just snap & go? Why the preselection of G11?

    for daily use & yet good enough to shoot my coral & fish

    speed, macro, color capture
    movie will be bonus
    no need zoom, wide angle

    im amaze with the pix taken with g10(some pix from another forum)
    but choose g11 due to the performance in low light environment

    cheers

    s95 will be ideal, get a waterproof casing and lower it into fish tank to do some fun underwater photography or video.

    s95 vs g11, both around $450
    which is a better choice?

    i take pix outside the fish tank, but waterproof case is a bonus
    thanks again

    What is still left open that you can't make a decision? Have you read reviews? Have to tried any of them in a shop (they are different cameras, mind you)? Now that you know that both cameras are well capable of doing the job it's no longer a decision purely based on specs.

    So it converts to about S$320. How much is the freight costs?

    total cost including "Case Logic TBC-302" & shipping, assuming rate @ 1.35

    USD244.89(amazon) + SGD21.23(borderlinx) = SGD330.60 + SGD 21.23 = SGD351.83
