    Default Need recommendations for Compact Digicams

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking to get a compact PnS very soon. Not looking at ultra-compacts as I want manual modes. Budget is around $500. Any brand will do.

    Thanks!

    I second that if you do not need any manual settings. F20 look nicer with the metal grey . IMHO.

    Wao looks like many people here recommend fujifilm, rather than the canons and nikons. Will have a look at that. But I'll need manual settings, as I like to play around with the cam, ultra compacts just bore me after a short while.

    Fuji F30 then! u can print ISO1600 shots in 4R with hardly visible grain. i just printed some shots that my parents took inside some tourist attraction in beijing. it was shot at ISO1600. honestly, it looks like ISO100 - 200 from any typical canon compact. it is THAT good

    For compact, Fuji F30 or F20 are very good for low light condition. I am using F20, check out these sample pic I took yesterday at the Fish&Co with dim lighting.

    Fuji F30 do have some manual like aperture/shutter mode (not sure bout F20 tho), the LX2 i mention have those function as well. personally i take LX2 because of its slightly special 16:9 sensor instead of the normal 3:2 or 4:3.

    F20 has the same antiblur function as F30.

    Why not IXUS? IXUS 800 IS looks decent.
