    Exclamation Battle of the Budget P&S Cams!

    I've been looking out for a point and shoot cam, 2mp will suffice as I"m only going to be printing 4R at most.
    I've narrowed my selection to the following few models:
    1. Ixus V2 - overall smallest of the lot
    2. CP2500 - has the most scene modes (are they really useful??), swivel lens
    3. Fujifilm A203 - Small and light, but not much feedback on it?


    Are scene modes really useful for p&s complete newbies?

    V2 or 330
    v2 is good lor but 330 is better with x3 optical only abit more bigger the same functions as V Series too nice canon color but on the soft side on sharpness

    Fuji a203? it a P&S type lor
    but lesser functions if u compare to Canon V Series but abit bigger in size if compare to canon's
    not soo sharp as i find it color is decent maybe the lens is not of good quality i try before lor before i get back my 2800z

    thx.
    not sure about Cp2500 but i heard is still oke but more exp and around the size of a203 and pic quaity is in between fuji's and canon

    oh ya the scenes is a nice gimmek to add to the nikon and canon
    fuji dont have lor i lastime own a canon and it fun having a edit on the fly sepia, B&W and vivid color too

    oke in the end i suggest the canon V sereis for the small size and functions for a all rounder

    Fuji not worth it if i'ts cheap i will get it as a P&S

    Nikon not sure as i dont a own a nikon before
