    you want ultra zoom ones, then i recommend you taking the...

    Canon Powershot S3 IS
    Fujifilm FinePix S6500

    dun bother considering the oly sp-550uz, it's not as good as the two mentioned above.

    if already have an investment in SD cards, or don't like the idea of using xD cards, the Fujifilm F40fd, which accepts both xD and SD cards...

    It would be better to check with your friend what is his/her requirements, cos for $800, there are 1001 models to choose from!

    Is he looking for simple straightforward P&S, or would he prefer more controls throw in. Other considerations like portability, ease of use, preference on memory card type, heavy in night-shoot etc etc.
    from guitars, cars to dslr...

    just general shooting, not photo enthusiasts, no need so many considerations.
    no memory card type or Mp requirements. just can take decent pix ok liao.
    thanks anyway.

    Well, the f40 has a lot less features and functions than the f31d, and costs more.. so it's like you're paying more for less features.

    I'd personally recommend the Ricoh Caplio GX100 if your budget is about $800.. it's about $820 I think and has a very nice range - 24-74.. and really good macro mode. Damn nice to hold and looks sexy too. I just got one for myself last week :)

    How abt Nikon P5000 at abt $520 ? Quite cheap i thought. It is well built. Feels solid.
