    Default Need help on new Cam...

    Hi all,

    I'm a newbie to both this page and to dig cams...
    have been doing some research on getting my first dig cam...
    and have more or less decided on the powershot G2.
    *rubbing hands together...

    Need to ask the kind folks here wad else i need to take into
    consideration...

    - is a dry cabinet essential?
    - is the G2 battery sufficient for normal usage? (a bit subjective...)
    - is the G2 memory sufficient?

    anything else to note?
    Thanks all for replying!

    A dry environment will deter fugus from growing inside your lens. Considering the small size of a G2, you might like to consider a small dry box plus silica gel instead of a dry cabinet. It costs less than $40 for a small one.

    Cheers

    Er... Seed is later today at 6.30p.m ley... hee hee...

    BTW, a small dry cabinet cost less than a hundred... so the savings involved in getting a dry box or a cabinet is also subjective...

    Many cameras shops and photo labs sell Silica Gel. Dun buy the small containers version which cost about $1 each. The much much bigger bottle version will cost less than $4 if you bargain...

    Since it only costs a few dollars, I'll suggest get the bottle version.
