I found a cheap digital camera

I bought a cheap digtal camera to day and thought I would let you all know about it. It is the Olympus C730 3.2MP and normally it is £450ish. John Lewis is selling them for £299 but as I work there I got my staff discount on top of that! You may have a job tracking one down though cause they all sold pretty quickly.

I am NOT making anything out of telling you all but I thought seeing users in here have helped me before I would help out myself.

BTW. the camera gets pretty good reviews on the net.

Thanks for sharing ray..... Personally I will never use Olympus, they stiffed my Dad "God rest his soul" big time & for that they will never be forgiven.

Infact the 35mm SLR camera is still in his wardrobe, in as good a condition as they day it was sold to him by dixons. & not one picture could ever successfully be took with it, not even by olympus themselves. But they could find no fault's and put it down to all manner of excuses.

I am sorry tbh72 that you Father had so much trouble. Before going digital, I had 2 Olympus SLR 35mm cameras which were excellent.
