Digital camera query

  mikeyb59 21:24 28 Jan 2003

Am considering buying a new digital camera but would like opinions on what to get.

Current camera is an Olympus with 1.3mega-pixels and 3X optical zoom + 2X digital zoom.

I would like to go for something with at least 2mega-pixels+ and ideally a 6X optical zoom.

Can anyone suggest something suitable without breaking the bank (£2-300).

Try and search on price when you find some that interest you go to and search for reveiws on the one that interest you

I have got a Fuji Finepix 2800 zoom, it is 2Mega Pixls 6X optical zoom. aprox £300. I find it very good, my only complaint is that it is not that good to get a focus lock in poor light, however in good light it is excelent as I mainly use it for outside daylight shots. I got it from click here if you would like to see a sample pic I would be happy to send you one, please keep in mind a 2M pic is 700-800K so will take a while to download if you are on a modem.

The Olympus 700 now replaced by the 710 & 720 has 10x zoom. You should be able to find the 700 at less than £300. It's an excellent camera.

My Xmas present was a Ricoh RR30 3.2 mpix, 3 x optical zoom - cost £220.

It's brilliant.

I use a canon A40 2.0 mp camera. It has just dropped in price again, very easy to use, digital zoom, short video with sound, good manual and software, great looking pictures. This is my 4th camera
