ok, so it's strictly below $500 eh. hmmm.... i think the T1 could be gotten for $600+ second hand. Saw your post asking abt a 1MP exlim too.... 1MP is too little to take good pictures... u shld consider 3MP and above as an advice.

i'd recommend the nikon coolpix 4500... it's a lovely little camera that does practically everything! check with Azure, he's an avid coolpix user, he can probably give you the run-down on it...

i really advise you not to get an exilim, just flip thou the free magazines on juice and certain nightlife mags and you see how badly the photos are taken with any of their cameras.The colours are off etc..... This is my personal thought.
Its just lots of adverts for the brand but i havn't hear any rave reviews on any of their products yet.

also try and get between a 3 to 4 mega pixel camera. for your budget you get try 2nd hand or there are some other cameras within your budget. canon, nikon, fuji, sony are some of your safe bets but after looking thou again try asking for comments or search for the products on line or here to ask for advise.

a good camera should do what its primary function serves, take pictures. for mp3 players there are creative and apple products to cater to your needs.

If you are the all in one kind of guy, i suggest those PDA they not only can shoot pictures, you can make phone calls and properly play music on them as well. :dunno:

Hiyee,

One more camera worth looking at... Canon A75...

Check out the reviews first before committing to one... Me also thinking of buying a compact cam, most likely the Sony DSC-W1.

Check this link, http://www.steves-digicams.com/best_cameras.html

It shows the best cams in different categories. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Hiyee,

Since the Sony DSC-W1 is your dream cam too, why not just get it. If you on tight budget, go for instalments payment so you woun't feel the pinch. And if you get from Best denki ($749 versus $650 from shops), plus add $29, you'll get a 4 years extended warranty, covering repair labour and parts replacement....

Else, there's a thread, http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=85902

Someone selling a Sony Cybershot DSC-72, quite a good cam too... $320, maybe can bargain too...

remember, you need to keep at least $100 off for spare batteries and maybe an additonal memory (if there is no offers for now in include it as a free gift.)
