    Default Need advise on getting DC

    Dear all, I am quite loss on choosing a new digital camera. I read the spec at wwww.dpreview.com but all look quite the same to me.

    I will use this DC when travel, prefer a compact size and uses SD/ CF. I don't need a high megapixel one as I normally shoot at 1MP and store the photos on computer. I will use the scene modes as my knowledge on DC is limited.

    1 friend advise Lumix FX9 but it's quite expensive at $700. But the image stabilizer will be very useful as hand shake cause many blurry shoot. Is there any other models below $700 that I should consider?

    Is Canon A410 good? Thank you!

    Yup! Get an IXUS 55 for the small form factor.

    This afternoon tested Canon ixus iZoom. Overall form factor is sleek, compact and light. Startup is fast. LCD is small but won't consume too much battery power. Despite no image stabilizer on the spec, the image turn out well on the LCD but need to confirm on a monitor screen or printout. Not sure due to display set, need to press hard on the button to take a snapshoot. Optical zoom at 2.4x is too little? Canon offer now at $599 and I will consider this model.

    Camparing, Lumix FX9 is bulkier and big LCD will consume a lot more battery power?

    Get the Fujifilm F11, fast start up, nice LCD screen and movies. Lasts for 600+ shots on one battery.

    if the shutter need to press hard, i think it might be a problem cos when u press hard to take picture, might shake camera. unless u use timer

    better check out other izoom before u decide

    Image stabilizers can be useful in some conditions but it can never beat cameras that are shot mounted on tripods. Canon's A series are not bad i must say so it's recommended. Sony's image quality are also very gd but it only uses MS.

    Fujifilm's F11 is overbudget and using only xD card
    Now considering Canon, Nikon and Casio using SD card.
