    I want to buy a moderatly priced digital camera, minimum of 2 megapixels, and a nice optical zoom.
    I've like the Canons...I've been using my dad's S40 for a few weeks now and i love it.
    Also, I'll never buy a sony.


    Anyone have any suggestions with prices for me please? :big grin:

    Olympus C-700

    2.1 megapixels, 10x optical zoom (equvalient to a 380mm lense), and fits in the palm of your hand.

    They also make a 10x optical w/ image stabilization, called the C-2100, but it's nowhere near the size of the C-700.

    Both can be found for around $500 or less I think.

    Your welcome.....I have the C-700 myself and I love it. I like sneaking cameras into concerts and the C-700 is perfect. It gives you enough freedom (options/modes) to take some really great pics if you take time to learn them.

    Here's a few I took last month:

    $800 is expensive but then you can get this:

    Yea youre right, if you buy it out in the stores, that's the lowest you'll see, but on the net $500 is possible, so why not go for it eh?
