Ok, I am not savvy at such things and any advice will be appreciated.
Have been a FILM/DSLR user and realised that I'm just too lazy to carry these stuff around. Have sold off almost every system I own and now looking for a simple "pocket sized" Digital Camera that is at least 2MP and have optical zoom.
To take general pictures when the opportunity arises, mostly for photo-documentary: street; people, activities (excluding fast action sports), plants & buildings. And sometimes kids' birthday parties.
Camera that can be carried around, or left in a car's glove compartment. Reasonable lasting battery. Hopefully with an optical zoom and availabity of accessories like an extra batteries/car charger etc (I dont need wide or tele adaptors)
Storage media preference: SD or CF (IBM 1GB MD)
Photos to be eventually uploaded online (screen resolution), archived to CDROM or printed to a maximum of 4R size.
Manual control such as shutter speed, aperture would not ne neccessary but good to have.
Most importantly SHUTTER LAG must be minimum...
ps: I currently own a Panasonic Lumix F7 (using SD) and the shutter lag is Terrible!
Anyone with 2nd hand or 3rd hand offers, pls PM me details, price and key feature. Original box & proof of purchase NOT neccessary, as long as the camera functions well.
Cosmetic condition is NOT a criteria and will not pay MORE because its like "brand new". Ridiculours offers will not be considered and I will not attempt to bargain.
I'm really looking for a functional used cameras, just make a plain reasonable offer for me to consider.
Cameras that am considering: Casio Exlim, Canon IXUS v2 and S50.
