12X zoom,can zoom in on leng luis from far far.Geng mou?I kinda like this camera better. If I ever got some cash to spare, it would suit my pocket and needs just fine as compared to the dSLR Canon EOS 400D, cost more with basic lens kit.

No,I am still using my Sony DSC W-1,the kinda camera where some people would go “Ewwwww…..” with its look. However that doesn’t matter much to me, I still like it because it does its job quite well. I have to admit I had some reservations when I first bought it since the camera of my choice then was the Canon A85. How did I end up with a Sony camera which I am not really a fan of because of its pricey memory stick? Long story,to cut it short, it was the 1 year monthly installments offer then that caught my Dad’s attention. After that,it was history.

Last I checked, the total number of exposures(shots taken) was at 3600+ mark. Considering that I bought it in early 2005,that was quite a big number I thought. Of course, during the years, the camera has accumulated a lot of wears and tears but it is still working well nevertheless except for a few problems that I might probably want to sort out with the Sony Service Centre when I return in December.Firstly,it would be the rotating mode dial which has gotten rather erratic after a year of use,and secondly would be the battery storage cover which has broken after I dropped it on the way back from Gold Coast back in July. Hopefully, those would not cost too much to replace if they are not covered under warranty.
Just some filler post to write something down………

  1. Haha.. my count is at 2800 edi after almost half a year. Although a lot of them are useless pics i take for fun =P

    Hmm .. Canon EOS 400D is RM3000+ and Powershot S3 IS is RM1650 on eBay.

    Between the two, i’ll go for S3 definitely. It has IS, video recording and flip-twist screen (haha i just love this feature – narcissism). The 6MP is more than enough actually, though the screen is a lil small and sensor is smaller than A640’s..
