    Both are more than good enough for 4R. You probably could print decent 8R pics too.

    i can onli help more wif the accessories and pricing part... can't reelli help wif the image quality and stuff cos i haven't tried them out myself.. hahaz....

    1. fuji 2600 comes wif charger and rechargable batts, A20 doesn't....
    2. and if you're price-conscious, the A20 would cost slightly more than the 2600...
    3. fuji 2600 comes wif a 16mb SM card while A20 comes wif 8mb CF card... w/c is not much of an issue cos u wld wanna get a larger capacity card sooner or later...
    4. A20 has the video-out function, w/c is not found on the 2600....
    5. A20's min shutter speed is 1s as compared to the 1/2s of 2600...
    6. 2600 has a built-in movie mode (no sound though)... but the A20 doesn't haf this function at all...

    hmmz... will try to tink of more differences.. u evaluate them fer urself and see w/c ones are more impt to u yarz?

    I am also new lah.. but i try to help, ok?

    Other thing i dun know.. but know that 5 sec shutter is better than 1 sec shutter in nite shoot.... as the shutter needs to stay open as long as possible to "grab" enuff lite for the shoot... Need a tripod unless you cn hold a camera still for 5 sec...

    Read somewhere that anything faster than 1/60 prefer to use a tripod.

    max as in fastest lorz... so the shortest time possible fer the shutter to open and close is 1/1000s....
    if the MIN shutter speed is 1/2s then the longest time the shutter stays open is 1/2s lorz..
    mi newbie oso (tt's y i'm in this part of the forum... hahaz...) but i tink wat i wrote above is correct.. hahaz...

    A20 will be marginally better for night shots. The longer the shutter stays open, the more light can enter. It won't really affect the sharpness or colors of the photos.

    I would like to offer some advice..... if you want good night shots, go for cameras which allow longer exposure. If not, you won't be able to capture scenes like city lights well. A cheap (but not so popular one) that comes to mind is the Casio QV2400UX. This is around the same price range as the A20 and the 2600. The QV2400UX can go up to 60s!!!! Longer than many more expensive cameras out there. And it allows you to take very close-up pics of flowers and insects (it can focus at 1cm!!!).

    Also, if you want to take good pics of animals like tigers and lions, etc in the zoo, a longer zoom is necessary. 3x zoom is not sufficient for these shots. Fujifilm 2800 (6x optical zoom), Casio QV2900UX (8x optical zoom), Olympus C700UZ(10x optical zoom) and Olympus C2100UZ(10x optical zoom with image stabilisation) are the more popular ones here which cost less than $1000.
