    Do note that if you look at the Sony A200/300 series or the older Pentax and Olympus cameras you can stretch a 400 SGD budget quite a long way.

    I suggest you save up the difference. I've seen it go for $450 (also try to see if seller is selling at best price).

    A good camera like a Kx offers the features and performance that will last you for a long time. IMHO, pro-sumers like S90, LX3 or some cheaper option will just make do for a short span of time and their limitations (smaller sensor; lens options; less of DOF control; etc).

    It can be compact or dslr, as long as it is within my budget.
    My budget is $400.
    Any recommendation?

    TS budget of $400 is pretty tight, not much choice on DSLR+kit. Perhaps TS can save up and increase to 500-550 range, will have slightly more choice.

    I am selling it away bcos i need extra cash in hand. And i have no time to invest thus willing to let go and get into this hobby again with a much larger budget for new DSLR.

    Prosumer was fine, but the price of DSLR has come down to the point where you might as well get that.

    Nikon D40 or canon 350D or canon 300D? Should be able to fit into that budget.
