Last weekend I was over at Sim Lim Sq, shopping for a cheapo digital camera. Dropped my fuji finepix of two and a half years while I was at the other end of the globe, and now it not working well. Hence the perfect excuse to get another digital camera. I don't need high resolution since I don't print my pictures, and something small and handy would be ideal. And better if it could be used as a webcam.
And I stumbled onto this camera. Amconics, not a famous brand, but it fits snugly in my palm, and it's less than $200!
