Thread: Suggestion for a new digicam

    Default Suggestion for a new digicam

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a new compact digicam to replace my current one (my avatar ) Originally was considering Olympus SP-350 but I heard that the picture quality is not that good and from a review, picture taken at the widest angle is a bit blur?

    Budget: Less than $800
    Requirement:
    - Manual controls
    - Optical view finder
    - Not too big in size, somewhere around the size of SP-350?
    - At least 3x optical zoom
    - Memory media and batteries not a concern

    Besides Oly, any cameras from the Sony or others fit the above requirement?

    Thanks for any help

    The Canon S80 seem to fit the bill, slightly over S$800/= though, and doesn't save in RAW either.

    You may want to check it out.

    Have fun shopping.
