    Default need help for a compact camera

    hi. i currently looking for a digital camera. budget is very low around $100 - $300.
    hope it could have good picture quality in daylight n lowlight as i like to takes picture in the night, macro, landscapes, especially sky.
    most impt is anti shock. as my hands are quite shaky. zoom at least 5x

    sorry, are there any recommendation?

    Like a reliable camera? go for canon.

    the IXUS 95 is a good buy for your range. here's the link for the prices:

    gotten a canon powershot A2100IS. $399
    there is no shutter adjustment.
    after awhile of using, the holding area will turn warm. maybe due to the battary.
    without shutter that means i cant use it for effect shooting?

    You already purchased? never mind. A series of canon (AXXXX) has discontinued the manual functions, one of the major drawback. Anyway, you can start to play around with it 1st. Seems like you still very new, you can practice your skills of handling cam / framing. . . I only come into a manual control camera after my 3rd camera. . .
