Hi guys,

I'm looking to get a compact PnS very soon. Not looking at ultra-compacts as I want manual modes. Budget is around $500. Any brand will do.

Thanks! ;)

I second that if you do not need any manual settings. F20 look nicer with the metal grey . IMHO.
Wao looks like many people here recommend fujifilm, rather than the canons and nikons. Will have a look at that. But I'll need manual settings, as I like to play around with the cam, ultra compacts just bore me after a short while.

Fuji F30 then! :) u can print ISO1600 shots in 4R with hardly visible grain. i just printed some shots that my parents took inside some tourist attraction in beijing. it was shot at ISO1600. honestly, it looks like ISO100 - 200 from any typical canon compact. it is THAT good

Fuji F30 do have some manual like aperture/shutter mode (not sure bout F20 tho), the LX2 i mention have those function as well. personally i take LX2 because of its slightly special 16:9 sensor instead of the normal 3:2 or 4:3.

Hey guys, I'm new to photography too and am interested to get a F30 as well(after reading so many positive comments on this pdt, and of course, looking at the photos taken by fellow forumer).

Where is the best place to get it? And what shd i look out for when purchasing digital cameras?

TIA
