Hi everyone,

Would appreciate your recommendations on a digital camera? Budget is about $900. Helping my sister in law source for one ... she will use it mostly for her new born baby girl as well as for travelling ... suppose macro is quite important and allows high iso if possible ...

would appreciate all your advice.

Thank you

How about a 601Z? It's compact and light; suitable for a lady and it packs a whole load of features.

Its video recording capability is limited only to storage space and I suppose this could be good for capturing video clips of her baby.

Macro mode is not bad either and the image quality is very good as well.

If you don't mind buying used, I think the Canon Powershot G1 is going for about S$600-800, and is good value for a 3.3mp digital camera with options for manual over-ride, hotshoe for flash etc.

if you want a "G1" like performance but on the cheap, check out the Epson promotion during Comex. The Epson 3100Z ($399+buy a photo printer) is a very capble 3.3MP camera with a good lens. Specs wise, it's similar to the G1 except that it uses AA batteries and didn't have a roatating LCD. Check it out!
