Hi

I am planning to get a new digital camera at Comex.. I have kind of narrow down my choices to the below few:

1) Canon A720 IS
2) Canon S5 IS
3) Olympus SP 550 UZ
4) Fuji FinePix S8000 SD
5) Sony DSC H3


Basically, i need the camera just for normal phototaking.. not really into the more pro type as yet but would like to play around with some additional functions with my new camera.

Anyone could provide any comments?

They are all good. Just go to a shop to get a feel of the cameras and see which you prefer most and is most comfortable in your hands cos you are the one using it. But always listen to your heart and not be influence by the sales person.

go to a shop with all the cameras
bring SD cards or some kind of memory storage device.

try the camera and compare the photos
try to snap the same composition with each camera.

just think about it which camera u really think suits u than get it don be so called"conned" at comex as each sales person is mainly trying to promote their own brand of cameras and do read on9 reviews before getting

dpreview helps to give you some ideas about the performance of the camera. But ultimately the user is you. Just go to a shop and try all the models.

Unfortunately, i think the A650 IS is not available at COMEX leh. Seems like A720 IS pretty much match wat i required and the price is pretty ok.
