    Default Which 5 MP digital camera?

    Was thinking of buying a 5 MP digital camera, point and shoot style. Was with film cameras so dun know much about digital. Would like one that has good lens quality and slim preferably uses CF. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    Some suggestions

    Fuji Finepix F10 (6MP, good high ISO, low light camera)
    Second hand "new" condition Canon A95 from Buy&Sell section (lots of people selling)

    Not so slim but superzoom 12X 5MP:
    Canon S2 IS
    Panasonic FZ5

    Only the Canon cameras I recommend uses CF

    Get a Fuji Finepix F10. It's got very good high-iso noise levels so you can take shots in poor lighting conditions w/o using the flash.

    For compact P&S digicams, you wouldn't really be too concerned with the lense as the sensors are not large enough to even fully utilise a fantastic lense of sorts.

    Thanks for the replies
    will be considering the following

    1) f10 fuji
    2) canon a95
    3) canon ixus 50 or 500
    4) casio exilim z55

    any comments on these cameras?
    and where's a good place to buy?
    Thanks!

    In my opinion, the Casio will be the first to be out from the list. The 2nd one to be out is Canon A95, so old liao right? Cannot decide between Canon Ixus 50 & Fujifilm F10 now.
    From Pentax to 4/3, back to Pentax and then back to M4/3 !?!?

    Mostly uses SD card now. Using CF is Canon Power shot S1. The new S2 uses SD.
