on the subject of digital cameras
    #1974525 - 10/03/03 12:15 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I've decided that I will buy a digital camera within the next two months. I have been borrowing my mom's Minolta SLR and it is a piece of shit!. Refuses to focus any closer than one meter. I've done some research and boy have I found things to drool over, but I am unsure if they are REALLY what I need. I need something versatile. Something that can fill the viewfinder with a .5inch tall shroom one minute, and a mountain range the next. I know that optical zoom is better than digital. I have looked at the Fuji S5000, the Olympus C2100, and have drooled on pictures of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10. Someone guide me in the right direction.

I have a Canon Powershot A70, and am very pleased.

Read http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canona70/ for a review.

They have some nice cameras with 4 megapixels out now. Check out any of them. Do you have a cost range for it? I'd goto Fuji first, I hear they have some nice cameras.

I'd like to spend no more than $699 on camera plus accessorices (memory filters batteries etc). That's a nice camera anno. I like the price too. I'm going to add it to my list.

I recommend the Olympus C-5050

5 megapixels, and you can get them for about $600

That one comes with a 250mb chip.

Get a Canon EOS 300D
It's a very decent digital SLR for $900
Review here http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos300d/

Or, like Anno says, Canon A70
I have an A40 and they are a very nice camera.
