I recently bought myself a digital camera. I talked to various people and the consensus seemed to be that Cannon and Olympus have better quality lenses so I narrowed my choice to one of these brands. I mainly want to to take photo’s for the web so a huge megapixel rating isn’t a big priority. I was told that digital zoom is pretty much useless but to get analog zoom if I could. I decided on the Olympus C350 Zoom which is a 3.2 MP 3x optical zoom camera. So far I am very happy with the results.
Digital Photography Review is a good site to look at for reviews and specs for camera’s if you are looking at purchasing one.
As I was warned alkaline batteries don’t last too long, I picked up two sets of digitor NiMH 2000mAh rechargeables which seem pretty good so far.
