lbl...if u discourage me fm buying dslr, i will accept. cos don tink i'll get a dslr. not THAT into photography yet.
rahskae...where can i rent camera?nvr know got such services.
rezzshaz...leica is an expensive brand rite?...my budget ard 700 only.
oh sorry abt that. very new to this forum so haven't gone thru each n every thread. anyway i was reading the other thread from a newbie also. over there ppl were recommending her the sony a330. how come no one recommends taht to me here?...hehehe.
don mind that actually. cos don tink i'll get a dslr. like someone mentioned in that thread, mayb can really truly explore a compact 1st, we nvr know how gd a compact is n mayb after using it to its full potential, a compact might jus b enuf.
cos even my basic fuji digi cam, after owning it for like 1yr+, jus realised more functions that can make my shots better.
In her case, she needed to capture her fast-moving kid. The A330 is great for that.
If people come here and don't seem certain about what they want/need, the WORST thing we can do is recommend a DSLR. You should only get a DSLR when you feel limited by your current setup.
rashkae...yup...not sure whether i can use a dslr...dat's y decided not to get 1.
galdor n zerocool...jus kidding la. i know a330 is a dslr...n i wont b getting 1.so no worries. cos most recommended me nikon n canon here. no fret. not getting any dslr. will jus settle for a gd pns or compact...n try to use it to its full potential. mayb a dslr in the near future after i've mastered some controls.
Get a P&S which has Aperture priority, Shutter priority and Manual modes. These DSLR functions allow you to get good pics in situations when the Auto mode can't do the job.
Panasonic Lumix LX3 has good reviews and followers in CS forum. You can find out more.
SLR is definitely a choice you will not regret. However there are things to take note, for example like me, I did'nt know there SLR really needs lots of practices to master it, cos I was spoiled by the point and shoot cameras. Secondly, really need upgrades to a certain point, cos current equipment might not satisfy your shots anymore. Thirdly, you need some space in your house, all the space in my house is filled with toys that I hardly have space to even properly store a few lens in future. There are a few more factors but overall, it really fun to own one DLSR.
If you asked me, my DSLR is a Nikon D3000. Why I choose Nikon D3000? Cos I really do not know how to use a DSLR, so I trying out this first. Also, lots of my colleagues are using Nikkor lens, so I can borrow suitable lens and take advice from them for my DSLR.
So it depends how or what you want.

thanks for all yr advise. now i've totally ditched the idea of dslr. so looking at the likes for lx3, g11, sx1is n so on. will take note of the advices i got from here when deciding which to buy.
ok i've decided to get sx1is. buying from a forumer here. the lx3 tho is a very gd cam, from wat i read the zoom is not that great. so...making a compromise...i choose gd pic quality, hd video capability (i take quite a lot of videos) n long zoom.
