Hi everyone,i am getting a digi cam tomorrow Budget 1.7k and i wanna get a small 4 or 5 mega pix camera and i saw the coolpix 5000 and i knda like it...but its quite a risk as i dont really know how well it will perform for a newbie..so any advices?I understand that the G2 is good too...but i dont really like its design...but then again if coolpix ain't that good for its price or a newbie i would rather take the G2...pls advice.Thanks!

well..do try out jon 3:16...look for samuel...he's very good and very helpful...dun worry...prices wise are jus as competitive as CP or even cheaper...its at funan...a little advice though...do try out a few models before deciding...take ur time to explore each model...try till u like...be comfortable with the functions...and not jus the looks


happy shooting
;)

If I am not mistaken, Canon G2 has larger aperture lens than Nikon CP 5k. It means you can have more bokeh (blur background) when shooting portrait at maximum aperture, and faster speed in low light. G2 is so much cheaper (S$500?) than CP 5k...you can buy lots of accessory with that saving.

Btw, if you can wait for another week or so, there might be a few new series of CoolPix coming out. Wait for the announcement by Nikon USA on the 29th May 2002.
