Default Need some bidding advices on "Pentax OPTI0 430RS Digi C

hello! I will be participating in a silent auction at my local school in 2 days. My school is offering "24" Pentax OPTI0 430RS for us to bid. And I think this will be a great chance for me buy a decent point and shoot cam at bargain price. The starting min. bid is $350 CDN (around $220 US). Since this auction is only offered to my school, i think the max. bid will be around $500 CDN or under when the auction is finally over.

So, do you guys think $500 CDN and under for 4mp pentax 430RS is a good deal? I heard mixed pros and cons reviews about this cam. So, i don't know if it's a nice cam for a "soon will be first dig cam owner" for price of $500 and under.


I will be updating this thread once the auction starts. Hope you guys will help me out here.

thank you for helping me out

US price from BuyDig.com is $400 plus shipping. Any price under $425 US should be a good buy.

oh the bid is at $450 now, but i have one concern.

Is it better for me to spend extra $100 to get canon S230 than spending around $470 for 430RS ?

I need u guys' advices.


I just need a compact cam that can take decent quality pics.
