one thing that always get my funny bone. I think nokia HP users do not know how bad the UI really is !! Motorola and Panasonic are like way way better... with less "cute tech"... but definately more usable.

:p

heh dun worry I am in good mood today...
I mean it's the same with sony constantly RE-introducing old tech in new packaging.. so it's like a coolpix 950 with new OS and casing...

but hey I realised all comys are doing it... think the 2 mpix is the prcing sweetspot now... and the pix are small enough that they can get away with small buffers and stuff... HEY... hit me on the head!

well nokia lor.. the newest phones still have the same tech since 8210, plus some tweaking updates...

off-track but I love siemens since they got everything the nokia has and more, higher res, ringtones, logos, etc... only gripe is they are so unconfident in their UI? each step must click add. OK or confirm... sigh..

2 mp is good, good enough for most people. 2mp prints decent 8x10"s, takes up less space and thus your CF card can hold more, and of coz, takes less time to write to the CF. And hey, I am still using the legendary Coolpix 950. :D

For most people who don't print or never print beyond 4R, even a 1.3mp will suffice.

Regards
CK

true true... that's why I dun see any urge to upgrade for mpix.. in fact I downgraded from cp990 to c2100.... the reason for a new cam is more for image quality and features....

btw my friend showed me her d1[speed] pix... hehehe far far cry from those we see online... 8P (sorry dun kill me)

LOL... I thought u on drugs or something :D That would be the D1H you're talking about.

If it's technical issues, tell her to feel free to email or pm me, I might be able to help her understand the camera.

Simple solution. Send the camera to me. In exchange, I'll give her a Nikon L35AD Compact Camera. Guarantee better pics. :D

Or maybe she's using one of those 28-300 Tamrons wide open at the extremes. I have a colleague who uses a D30 with that and kept complaining it's not sharp. He eventually sold it off to his friend. :D
