can help to recommend a P&S?
no brand preference.
Do you need it to be compact? Have manual functions? Take AA batteries? Wide lens?
I personally wanted mine to be more compact, with manual functions, so wound up with a Casio Z750, which I'm very happy with so far. I recommend that you go to Dpreview and compare the P&S there... lots of options for you to choose from and customise so that you can end up with that perfect camera...
fujifilm F30 no need to think too much
usable images up to ISO3200
“How fortunate for leaders that men do not think.” - Adolf Hitler
fuji F30 or panasonic FX01
canon IXUS 800
I chose the Canon Powershot A700 coz I wanted the following:
- uses AA-type batteries vs. proprietary li-ion batteries;
- SD Card vs. xD card as SD is cheaper for the capacity;
- Zoom lens from 35mm to 200mm (6x) vs. 3x;
- Viewfinder+LCD vs just LCD only;
- Manual controls: Aperture and Shutter priority;
- The protruding handgrip shape vs. the flat rectangular ones (easily slipped out of ur hands)
...though I like the F11, F30 series for its hi-iso low noise feature.
Well, it's your choice finally.
f30... u wont regret. goto the Fujifilm sub forum and take a look at the pics taken by this cam. u wont regret.
One more for Coolpix P4. 8MP and VR comes in very handy indeed!Originally Posted by ortega

Sony W100 and Fujifilm FinePix F30 are not bad
sony w100 out of budget i think... coz i saw the w70 already $600+ iirc. so w100 should be more exp.
currently shortlisted, in this order. the fuji f30, panasonic fx01 & nikon p4
actually i am checking out for my buddy, will recommended these models to him. he's looking to replace his old sony p&s so i thot of recomending another sony so that he can reuse his ms... but the fuji & panasonic look really good.
thanks again guys
the 3 u shortlisted are good. i would add to that the canon 800 IS.
Sony W100 retail price is S$699.00 If bought from MS colour should be cheaper.Originally Posted by EiRiK
Currently Sony got promotion Free 512 Pro memory and 2 years extended warranty.
Check the price around before you buy.
