    G11 vs S90

    The deciding factor should be dependent on the buyer's needs. That said, I was deciding between the G11 and S90 earlier on too. But bought the S90 last week after a few nights of toss and turns ... reason being the pocket-ability of S90 (compared to G11). I need a camera which can sequeeze...

    Notebook Dilemma

    I don't trust HP, Compaq, Acer & Dell. [but that's my opinion] I'm currently using a Fujitsu laptop L1010, my previous laptop was a Fujitsu too. My organisation is using Fujitsu as well.

    I am tempted to get a Ricoh R8. But both the Black and Silver color looks so cool that I can't decide which is "cool"-er? Does Cathay Photo carries Ricoh as well? :-D~~

    Sigma DP-1

    i loved the shape of the DP-1. But i just don't understand one point; it's suppose to be a fixed 28mm (35mm equivalent) lens, but how come it have the "wide" and "tele" buttons at its behind? So, is it suppose to offer zoom?

    Cost of living in Singapore (title edited)

    cost of living is indeed going up, especially with the warning that inflation will go up next year. but i thought $1,400 is alot of money(!). i mean, rent a decent hdb room [instead of a whole apartment or in condo] w/o aircon cost just $300 - $400; and if room-mate, can split cost too. and if...

    GR Digital II announced

    sorry if this sound stupid, but may i know what's so special about this GR camera that warrants the higher price? I meant, given that a similar canon / nikon / olympus would cost much less, what's the plus for getting this Rocoh? Is it simply becos of brand [as in LEICA p&s verse lumix p&s; only...

    and who is going to write your name on their's? if no one, then you paid $20 extra for your friend [and your firend (the bride/bridegroom) will appreciate your friend]; and they would think that you just ate a "free" meal! in any way, you got a free meal, but a bad reputation. and if you plan to...
