Flurry of posts.
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!

Wow... amazing such a small camera can have this.

I will not go for it though. Most of the time, the picture quality comes out very weird in terms of colour or pixelation. =)

Now it's 2 vs 2.
But I'm getting it as a quickcam; not going for high quality shots. But still not too sure since I haven't seen the night shots yet.

Hmmm... decisions decisions.
