    Default Need help with choice

    Hi all,,

    I am just starting out in digicams and I am looking for a >3 MP for less than 1k.

    I have sorta narrowed it down to about the following candidates:
    1. Sony DSC P71
    2. Fujifilm finpix F601
    3. Nikon CP 880

    Need help and comments on the above 3. Any more additions to this range is also welcomed.

    Thanks,
    -Andrew

    Hi andrew,

    If you're willing to spend slightly more, the Fuji S602 is a better buy then the F601. It's not here in Singapore yet, but price speculated to be around S$1.2k.

    CP 880? or is it the 885?

    Anyway, Olympus has a few which you can consider, 2100, 700 or 2040. Ask Jayan (), he can tell you more about these cameras.

    get the G2 black, looks cool with the 420Ex flash unit
    now that's what i call a real pro
    u can use it to print direct to CP-10 and the new CP-100

    Well, his budget is stated as 1K. Therefore, not possible to buy the G2 at this moment, unless he ups his budget. Also, don't forget the 420EX will set aside another S$340.00. Plus storage, .... and the list goes on.

    P/S: Looking cool with the flash doesn't mean anything. What is important is the end results.

    QV4000 sounds like a good bet, its may well cost abt 1K, and you can use canon lens too.
