    Default Need help Buying DC..

    Hi guys. I am thinking of getting a new DC. I will probably need it to be able to take night shots and decent manual settings. With a budget of about $700+, wat is my best bet? Thanks

    If that is ur budget u can go for Oly C-2040Z or if u have enough budget u can also go for Oly C-2100UZ it costs u abt $800+ i think. Am not sure of other brands.

    Try viewing my night shots here using Oly C- 2040Z

    Have you sold your A40? And I thought you would like the Ixus?

    Yeah my A40 is sold. I am looking for one with Manual controls. First hand ones i cant afford just yet. So gotta settle for second hand ones probably. I am contemplating on getting a second handed G1 from Dennis. Wat do you guys think? I am quite scared due to the fact that its already 18 months old. Is there anywhere i can take it for a check? Thanks. All comments welcome and appreciated.

    Think C-2100UZ is still $900+.....anyway after a firmware upgrade the noise problem shouldn't be so bad as long as the CDD is sufficiently cooled between shots.
