    powershot have manual control features but are usually bulkier.

    ixus series more compact and sleek, but the price comes at a premium..

    you can get a 2nd hand 300d at less than 500 or the 350d at slightly more than 500.
    even a d40 2nd hand body along cost 550.

    Will you print the photos? - consider Prosumer
    Or just take snap snap for fun only? - handphone cameras + for about the same price can make calls sms mms wifi GPS some more...

    I take snap snap for fun only, but still end up with handphone cam and DSLR hehe

    how about 970IS... 5x zoom... and when it goes into digital zoom... it will automatically sharpen the image to make it look better retaining details after you took a shot... if you don't need all the zooming and stuffs...

    Difference between ixus 80 and ixus 85 from what i know...

    ISO 1600 vs ISO 3200 max (of cos high iso for compact cameras is not that usable... but it is always up to you whether you wanna have a sharp photo but grainy or blur photo with lesser grain... your choice =)...)

    Ixus 85 got the automatic sharpening of image at digital zoom... but it is not as impressive as compared to 970...

    the rest is up to you to find out liao... =DDD

    you can also check out the panasonic DMC LX-3... 24mm wide till 60mm which is equivalent to 2.5x zoom.. this is one of the hottest camera in town now.. just try those cameras before u decide to purchase it yap... =DDD

    15 = slowest for the camera... 1/3200 = fastest for the camera...

    There's the new Fuji J150W, saw it in Today's Comex special @$299. Specs looks good on paper (25/26mm? 5x zoom) so you might want to head over to any Fuji booth to check that out.

    Canon PowerShot S5 IS


    These five cameras from Canon which one better ?
    Basically what do you need in your digicam? Anyway, differences as follows:

    1) IXUS series does not offer any manual controls. In manual mode you can only select the ISO, other settings like aperture and speed are automatically selected by the camera.

    2) Powershot A series are not made in Japan. They used to be made in Malaysia. However, they provide full manual, Av (Aperture Priority) and Tv (Speed Priority) modes.

    3) S5 IS is made in Japan and is for people who require long zooms. It has a 12X zoom equivalent to 35mm to 420mm. You do have to note though that the wide angle of 35mm may not be wide enough if you want to take landscape or a large group of people and you have space constraints meaning you cannot step backwards much. Full manual modes are available for the S5 IS.

    4) Regarding megapixels, you need to ask yourself what size of photos are you printing? Generally speaking for commercial presses, high quality printing needs 300dpi. For a 8 MP camera, the highest resolution is 3264x2448. At 300dpi, the max size is 10.88 inch x 8.16 inch. This means you can send your pic to a commercial press and they can print a high quality A4 photo for you.

    5) High ISOs for the above digicams is not really useful. I have used the Powershot A series, IXUS series and S3 IS and I find personally that there is very high noise apparent at ISO 400 and above.

    6) In conclusion, if you need only a Point & Shoot without manual controls and you have money to spare, go for the IXUS range. If you need manual controls and are on a tight budget, go for the Powershot A series. If you require a long zoom, go for the S5 IS.

    most of the big cameras uses double AA... for canon all the powershot series uses AA... and most of the cheap cheap like $199 cameras also use AA...

    when it comes to rechargeable battery... you can always get an additional third party battery... it is very cheap nia haha... most of the cameras uses their own rechargeable battery liao... normally 1 battery can last you about 300 shots without flash... and of cos bigger lcd screen also drains more battery off... ixus would be within your range if you only need simple, pretty, and user friendly... =)

    F100 got longer zoom than F60 and F100 comes with wide angle... i dunno much about fujifilm... but from what i know... they are known for their low noise???? dunno about the current models... but the legend F31 is like still the better lot which is not in production anymore... anyway, IS in sensor won't work better than in lens... do correct me if i am wrong =)
