    Cool Compact DC - what to get??

    Hullo,

    I'm looking for a compact DC for my wife who can't stand the bulkier Oly C2040Z that I currently own. I think her criterias are:

    1) Small, compact, lightweight, can keep in handbag
    2) Min. 2 Megapixel, 3 also can if price is good
    3) Point and shoot, doesn't care about manual control
    4) Good battery life
    5) Price - under $600. My criteria really since she is not concerned about how much I need to spend.

    Based on my own research, these are the models that I've narrowed:

    a) Fujifilm Finepix F401, 2.1 Megapixels, about $698.
    b) or should I go for the F402, 3.24 Megapixels, special offer at S$548?
    c) MINOLTA DIMAGE Xi, 3.2 Million Megapixels, S$ 708.00.
    d) CANON DIGITAL IXUS V2, 2.1 Megapixels, S$548.00.
    e) or CANON DIGITAL IXUS V3, 3,1 Megapixels, S$708.00
    f) CASIO EX-S2, pixel?, S$518

    My $$ criteria rules out items c) and e) but I'm still interested in the opinions of the forumers here.

    Which brand should I go for? Canon vs Fujifilm vs Minolta. And Sony? I've not even check there yet...

    most cheap DC performs poorly due to the limitation of usable ISO
    one better one would be the fuji 401
    fuji produces nice colours too

    if u dun care about shooting in low lighting then can consider the sony cyber shot U20 also
