    none.. $300 buy something neither here nor there and you'll get bounded by the limitations in a very short time.

    $300 is barely enough for me to buy 1 toto draw. let alone 4D etc.


    the value of money nowadays is too small. You wont get a Decent PDA or P&S cam at that cost. unless its 3rd or 4th hand.

    I rather not buy anything in that range else it will end up in my store room if its lucky or the trash bin.

    300 for a new pda might be quite impossible...

    300 for a digicam u can try taking a walk around sls and getting the best deal...but since its a gift, why not pool together with some friends if possible?

    Cheers!

    I think a camera is more useful, what can you do with a pda? With a camera you can at least make something........

    Don't listen to those who tell you with SGD 300 you can't get a decent camera. Remember: it is not the camera that limits you most, but the person behind the camera is the biggest limiting factor.

    If the camera doesn't have enough zoom, just move back lah! In most situations that is enough.......

    Go to Funan Asia something....they have a good colection of cameras. Or go to Cathay Photo at Peninsula Plaza. There are many cameras now for sale at around your budget.....

    $300 is enough for a decent PnS that shoots picture.

    Technology improves everyday. You should be able to scout for some good deals. Stick with Canon, Panasonic, Nikon. I managed to get a 6mp, 6x optical zoom, with IS, 2 inch Panansonic for $299 that uses 2 AA battery in black. That was a good deal.
    Panasonic sensors are known for their rather noisy image quality but I don't mind for daylight use.

    Maybe you can go look see look see then comeback online to check out the reviews and then make the best choice.

    It's not hard to come by a decent digicam for $300. Don't let the marketing gimmicks fool you into buying something in which you dont need and something in which it's not worth paying extra for.

    All the best. PDA is ... I would rather give a PDA/Phone or Smartphone but that would exceed your budget.
