    but will prob consider the powershot like what u said.. xie xie~
    The S45 is a better buy than S40 due to the DiGiC processor inside. It's basically a imaging processor that enhance the quality of the image in auto modes and it is said to prolong battery life too.

    Quite a good camera. I have used my friend's S45 and found the camera to be quite intelligent in auto modes and begineer-friendly.

    for freshie's benefit since she's new ....

    MO means Mass Order. People gather together as a group and make purchase. Usually the price will be lower than the market.

    CF means Compact Flash. It's the type of storage media (memory) for the digicam.

    Cheers!

    Usually people would recommend these 3 shops.

    MS Color - AMK Central. Besides S11 food centre.
    Alan Photo - Sim Lim ground floor.
    Cathay Photo - Penisula Plaza.

    Try getting e-quotes from them first before going down. And preferably check out the market rate so that you know when to bargain.

    Then try to bargain at least the lowest price you find or even lower which is better still. Market rates are quite competitive and so they are usually plus minus $20.

    Oh yeah, super stores' prices are usually marked up way high. So it's abit inaccurate to check out the prices in those places.

    yes, it does .... cos the batt are built slim to have a slim camera design .... so the batt isn't built to last ....

    so the wise choice is to purchase a backup batt ....

    Hey, I would still suggest that you buy another model with same specs. at a much lower price and longer battery life ... However, an extra battery is always useful ! I believe you will grow to love digital camera once you start using it !!

    Anyway, you can get from Sim Lim Square ... Allan Photo or Cathay Photo shops ... You may get a better price !

    for good investment, go for S45

    for better investment go for S50

    hee ...

    don't ask me what's the best investment ... cos we simply can't afford it :P
