my dad has persuaded me not to send my camera back to fix coz he’s gonna buy me a new camera *hehe*. so i’ve been camera hunting for a while. hmm i had my eyes on the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V1 since I saw it in a local store. its night frame and night shot ability and ‘Carl Zeiss’ lenses are quite attractive. it’s selling for $699.99 but i found the cheapest online for $521.09. i was gonna buy that one from the local store and try it out and see how i like it. then return it and get one online if i really want it. but what a bummer, everyone charges at least 15% restocking fee on digital cameras. so no such cheats for me *=P* after talking to the guy at the local store, i found out that smart media card is obsolete. no new generation digital cameras will use it any more 😦 my poor smart media cards and smart media reader *sniff*
after browsing thru yahoo’s most popular cams, i have my eyes set on another one. i really like Nikon Coolpix 4300 because annia’s review on Nikon Coolpix 885, i just LOVE the vibrant color of her picture. but it’s 4 mega and 3X optical zoom compared to 5 mega and 4X optical zoom of the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-V1. i wish it could be better. Nikon Coolpix 4300 does have manual focus tho. that’s one thing i really really want!! maybe i should just go with Nikon Coolpix 5400. that’s not one of the popular ones but it looks so cool! i need to make a decision. sign.. it’s so hard.
