actually honestly, for consumer digicam, i recommend canon or casio. they're much more user friendly and compact.
the pricing for nikon consumer digicams are a bit on the high side considering the specs and the size given.

If you do not need that high resolution.... then coolpix 3700 will be good enough for travel. The price different from 5200 is abt $200 ... choose what you needs .. :)

you are so rite... todae i went do to alan photo trading and the price diff is $210.. i nw veri confuse.. i play coolpix 3700 the cam nt bad lah.. but seems like coolpix 5200 is better.. i ask the person over there they say other then the lens, megapixel and the LCD screen the rest of the features is the same..

I can't make up my mind :confused:

Personally i realli like the 3700 as i think it looks better and performs v well too. My fren's fren just bought a 5200 @ PC show so far he said he is satisfied with the camera.

Why not get the 3700 and use that $200 plus you save from the 5700 to get something like a 512 mb SD? (its SD right?) I think the card that comes in the nikon box is very small, like what 16mb? Travelling where got enough? ;)
I bought my mom a 3100, even cheaper model for her Japan trip last week but I slap in a 1gig card for her to go crazy with it. Boy, now I got LOADS of shots to print out ;p At 3 megapix, 4R no prob :D

Magnificent Snap should be on the ground floor, right at the end of Marina Square, somewhere near the toilet or Whitelink. :)

Nope. I would recommend u get a equote from MS Color in AMK Central if u are looking for good price and service. Get your equote from here www.mscolor.com.sg :)

the e-quote from MS-Color is abt $480 including GST with some free stuff. one of which i think is a 64MB SD card
