Re: Opinions on digital cameras
I've got an Olympus D550, 3 megapixel, with optical zoom, and video. I find it great, even with the 16 meg card that came with it, I can fit about 150 pics on there, about 40-70k each.....good size for posting on the net. About the batteries though, well, I'm still using Duracell "Procells" in mine, and they last OK, but nothing like the re-chargables. Overall rating 3 1/2 starts out of 5, for being cheap, and easy to use, it was about $500 bills Cdn at Christmas, so should be very reasonably priced Stateside. I also retired an older model Sony with the big screen on the back, but it used the 3.5" computer disks, rather archiac, considering whats on the shelves these days, but still a great camera. When I was shopping around, I was told by more than one saleperson, that the Sony memory sticks were the most expensive to buy, if you need more space. In any case, good luck with whatever you choose.
