Hi all,,

I am just starting out in digicams and I am looking for a >3 MP for less than 1k.

I have sorta narrowed it down to about the following candidates:
1. Sony DSC P71
2. Fujifilm finpix F601
3. Nikon CP 880

Need help and comments on the above 3. Any more additions to this range is also welcomed.

Thanks,
-Andrew

Hi andrew,

If you're willing to spend slightly more, the Fuji S602 is a better buy then the F601. It's not here in Singapore yet, but price speculated to be around S$1.2k.

CP 880? or is it the 885?

Anyway, Olympus has a few which you can consider, 2100, 700 or 2040. Ask Jayan :)D), he can tell you more about these cameras.

Well, his budget is stated as 1K. Therefore, not possible to buy the G2 at this moment, unless he ups his budget.:D Also, don't forget the 420EX will set aside another S$340.00. Plus storage, .... and the list goes on.

P/S: Looking cool with the flash doesn't mean anything. What is important is the end results.:D

QV4000 sounds like a good bet, its may well cost abt 1K, and you can use canon lens too.
