If you dont want to be conned, stay away from lucky plaza or sim lim square. The reputable shops are listed in the price guide section!

I think you should look into micro four thirds instead.And please avoid Lucky Plaza for camera stuffs except for Iphoto.Try Funan instead...

P.S We have a price guide for almost every brand of camera here.

if u strech ur budget by a bit i think u can get a pentax k-x with built in body stabilizer it's a quite light camera(500-600gr with battery and kit lens on), if u're looking into more pocketable one, S95 will be at ur max budget(a "pocketable" micro 4/3 will cost around 900-1000 new)

I think I recall a second hand 400D and tamron 17-50mm for 800 dollars at the buy and sell section of the forum. Depends on whether you really interested in dslr photography or start with a good compact first. Though compact not as nice as dslr.

Lots of questions in a single post :D
Easy there tiger...

Funan is generally a good place to shop for cameras. It pays to be armed with knowledge beforehand.
There are bad apples as well though.
Look through the price guides to find a list of reputable shops. Call/email them for quotes beforehand, then when you're satisfied with the price, go down to make your purchase :)

It's really hard to recommend a specific camera for you without understanding your needs fully. If you yourself aren't too sure, I guess you gotta take a plunge and try it out for yourself.

But without some basic knowledge of photography, I'm afraid you may be disappointed with it too.

for latest price, u need to call the store and ask them to quote..

frankly bro.. u really need to read the manual to understand the operation of a cam.

and if u can operate any compact cam, i dont see why u cant with S95.. so no worry..

just to add on to bro Zero, the emphasis is what you really want out of the camera. if your aim is to start off into the entire art of photography, you may refer to the sticky by bro zoossh as a guide for your journey...

Your very first post of the thread, you said you were looking for "mini-DSLR" type of camera. I assumed that meant a prosumer/superzoom, which isn't that compact.
So now extreme compactness is high on your priority list? I'm confused.
And beware not to attribute a good photograph solely to the camera. A skillful and knowledgeable photographer helps... GREATLY! ;)
The photos on the blog may be heavily processed, giving you wrong impression. Then you buy and feel disappointed, like you bought a dud. Then how?
:dunno:

Sorry. I more or less decide on canon s95. I'm rather new so my meaning of mini dslr are those that are small but have great capabilities. Can start to learn abit n take scenery pic for my Europe exchange right? Or you guys think normal Ixus would br enough? I will be bringing it to cold places like Norway. Will it be able to withstand the cold? And after searching the whole price list I still can't find the price. But someone here says it's 595 at ms colour, you guys knw what does it come included? sorry for many qn asked cos need to research asap n get one soon! Thanks for all the replies so far!
