    Default Advice Needed

    Need your review for the following products:
    1.Canon S45 @ $836
    2.Minolta F300 @ $855

    Are the prices from the e-quote provided by CP included GST?

    I am thinking of getting one of the above product and therefore need some kind of advice from the"gurus" here

    Heres the info for both camera:

    Thank you very much

    I think it's written on the equote that the prices do not include GST?

    The main differences I can find between S45 and F300 are:

    - 4 mega pixels
    - uses CF cards (cheaper)
    - weight = 260g (heavier)
    - uses proprietary battery

    - 5 mega pixels
    - uses SD/MMC cards (more expensive)
    - weight = 185g (lighter)
    - uses Ni-MH batteries

    Other than the above, I find the features similar for S45 and F300. Both have 3x optical zoom and manual functions.
    I just wonder how the battery life for the F300 fare? Other than that, I personally think F300 is a good buy. And, the prices are amazing cheap for a new, 5 mega pixel digicam.

    What do the others think?

    Side by side comparison - if this works.

    I'll go for F300 definitely.

    ok i might be getting the F300 but when is the best time for me to get it?
    I heard theres some exhibition coming up in March so is it better for me to wait for a better deal? or might just go down and get it soon.(retail price and shop price case)

    Regarding the storage type, can anyone point out a good link to learn more about it?
    And also i heard the storage capacity for SD/MMC are limited to 256Mb? Can anyone confirm this?

    Which brand of SD/MMC are you using now? and how much is it roughly?

    Thank you
