Thread: Can someone recommend me a digicam?

  1. #1

    Smile Can someone recommend me a digicam?

    Hi all,

    I hope this is the appropriate category to post in.
    I'm currently in search for a new digicam
    cus my old konica minolta digimax 5 died on me
    the LCD's very whitish and bright now...

    Doesnt make much sense to actually send it for repairs right?

    So what cameras should I look at now?
    My budget is around 300-500?

    Alot of people have been recommending me the fujipix f31d....
    Im not sure if i should get it cus it looks kinda big to me.
    is it bulky?

    Im also eyeing the fujipox z5 and z3... and the nikon coolpix s200 cus all of these are slim.
    i like them sleek, yes, im superficial...
    i care about the exterior more i guess but i want decent pictures too.

    I usually take pictures of my shopping buys, sale items (Yahoo auctions etc) and sometimes of people.
    Yeah, just a very very basic cam user.

    Any recommendations?
    So i know what to look out for when I go visit the stores?

    Thanks in advance

    Check out the Sony T20 or T100. Sleek and sexy. You will like it. But may have to top up a little though.
    Minolta. Konica Minolta. Sony

    Fuji F31fd for sure. You can't go wrong with this cam. IT retailing at $499.00 (2 months ago price) with many freebies.

    fujif31fd is a clear choice for some... but it's not as slim as some of the untraslim lines... you can also consider the sony t10 (launched about a year back, the price might have fallen to within your budget?)... comes in a nice pink too!!

    if you're a lady you may not want the fuji f31fd. yes, it is good in low light but it is 1.7 inches thick. can you live with that?

    hmm yeah did read up reviews, f31d is good low lights.... guess best for camwhoring in clubs haha but i dun club often!! bleh!

    T20... hmmm.... i heard sony cams look gd and stuff but the price kinda steep
    max is 500 lah... dun wanna pay like 550 or more

    yeah i know the fuji f31fd is like thick ah..... sad case
    what you guys think of the z5?

    I asked for market price in the threads here, someone said mscolor quoted 399, someone told me 399 w/o any package, 499 for the cam + 2 pc of 1gb, 1 extra batt, cam case, tripod, lens cleaning kit (dry oso din use, q useless), lcd protector and card reader.
    same price for f31f too.

    if u dun mind the thickness, go for f31. i'm using z2 myself. i also prefer sth slimer. night shots ok, if u are not too picky kind.

    yeah not too picky, but the night shots u're referring as in 'outdoor w/o proper source of light' or 'indoors with flourescent lighting' ??

    Ugh. Horrible cams, I think they have their white balance and color accuracy set by a horde of dancing pink elephants.

    Maybe u can consider a phone cam. Nowaday phone cam quality can match those p&s cam. No need to carry 2 device.

    Just want to let the TS know that Sony's low-light and indoor shots are terrible! really CMI. Outdoor shot under the sun is pretty good. The software downloader is better than Canon, Nikon and Fuji. I dun like Fuji's software, and Canon's Zoombrower is flawed . (hog me PC!). But you can always choose not to use the supplied download apps or use 3rd party one. Hardware good software bad, software good hardware bad. Decide carefully.

    any of the cams u mentioned in ur first post will fit the bill for your intended usage. canon ixus is small and good too.

    for shooting without the flash, the fuji f31fd is best.
