Hi guys,

I'm a complete newbie in digital photography. Recently got fasincated by wonders of photography by all the nice digicams available in the market. Hand itchy want to get myself one to play around :p I'm not intending to learn a lot of skills and techniques and become a pro due to my busy work schedule, but I would love to pick up photography bit by bit, hope to get some support from u guys :)

Since it is my first digicam, I would like to impress my family members with a easy to use P&S cam, yet I'm also aware of the capabilities of manual operations. Budget would be between $500 to $800.

Based on my brief research, Canon A70/80, Nikon 3100/3700 and Casio QV-R40 seemed to be some of the suitable candidates.Therefore I would like to seek some advice from u ppl. Many thanks! :D

Hi Tuckson,

In my own opinion, for the THREE brands mentioned, I'll either go for the Canon or Nikon, as they're the strong players in the camera industry for a very long time.

Hope it helps.

Cheers!

Thanks for the advice guys ;)
While considering A70/A80, iXUS also came into my attention. What are the trade offs of getting a sleeker iXUS besides less manual operations?

Though i am a Nikon user
for P&S i will fancy the CANON A-series (A70 or A80) or iXUS series
currently still using my V3 :heart:
just recommend 2 friends to buy the A70 and they love it (its so easy to use and can add accessories somemore, which iXUS series can't unless u get adpater from overseas)
