    Hi guys,

    Just want to hear your recommendations on 4 megapixels camera. Preferably a compact size, minimum 3x optical zoom and ability to take continous shots. Thanks.

    Hi Veyonce

    When you say continuous shots....are you talking about the 3 frames per second, 5 frames per second kind that are SLR-like kind of specs OR are you simply looking for a camera that will just allow you to shoot away (never mind the lag time type) when your finger is on the shutter release?

    Often, compact means the latter.

    You can take a look at Canon IXUS or their powershot or Oly or Nikon coolpix....pretty much the same nowadays.

    Or you can look at the Nikon D2h (as recommnded by Helbreath ) but it is hardly "compact"

    Not sure what your specs are to be nor price, but try the Nikon CoolPix 4800.

    Seems that Canon is quite popular?? My budget is about $500..

    Which brand actually produces the best range of digital cameras??

    Each camera has its own pros and cons, very hard to say which brand is "better". Its up to your own preference in my opinion. If I were you, I'll buy either a Canon or Nikon. Why? Because I like what.

    D2H suit your need of 4MP, 3x optical zoom (with a 17-55 f/2.8) continous shots (8fps) but not compact size

    but with $500 go get a canon A series

    I second the Canon A series. Quite compact, got quite a lot of manual features too.

    yes...even i have a 1D, i still got a A80 to compliment it

    Not only it is small and light, the flip-out LCD is great for taking shots at odd angle and it is useful for taking snap shots without pple notice. It uses 4 x AA batteries which is cheap and easily available, very useful if you are going oversea for holiday.

    Rather durable also, dropped from waist level to concert floor a few times and still work perfectly
