    Unhappy Recommendation a Digital Camera

    Hi

    I know nuts about digital camera, so would like to seek your opinion and recommendation. Please help !

    What do you think is the few most important features or consideration ?

    1. Money (of course lah).
    2. More megapixel
    3. Lens. Are the Sony lens good ? (dun flame me, juz a question)
    4. Direct connect to printer (like canon ixus v2..etc).
    5. Some manual overwrite ?


    Please recommend a camera in the budget

    a. $900+
    b. $600+

    Thanks.

    Different people will have different main area to consider.


    For me I consider the following before I get mine:-

    1) simple p&s
    2) light to carry (bring everywhere?)
    3) able to handle low light photography?
    4) lots of manual control or just auto + some ev compensation

    off hand some models ranges from 1) to 3)

    olympus c-1/c-2 series (I have a c-1 for carry everywhere)
    canon a40
    olympus c7xx/c30x0/c40x0 (finally own an c4040 to partner my c-1)
    fuji s602z
    canon g2
    sony 717 etc

    Thanks guys for your help.

    Larry,
    I would love to have a G2... but no $$$. Do you think G2 price will go down with the G3 launch ? Shall I wait and see ?


    Guys,
    After thinking through, I'm more concern about the sharpness, brightness, constrast, quality of of the picture.
    Which camera is more realiable in this area given a budget of $600 and $1000 ?

    Yesterday, there's a review on digital camera on Computer Times, URL :
    http://computertimes.asiaone.com.sg/v2/spot01.shtml

    They recommend Olympus Camdeia C-720/C-730 Ultra Zoom and the FujiFilm FinePix S304 for $800-900+ range. Any comments on this ?

    Cheers

    If i were to choose between the two, i would choose the C730Z, C730 being the update to C720.

    But I don't mind getting a second hand G2 for that price too. Image quality shld be sharper and better compared to C730 and S304.
