Digital Camera

I intend to purchase a digital camera, and I need a wide angle lens. 28mm in Film Camera language. Also one able to store a large number of pictures (75+) Can anyone recommend a reasonable quality digital camera please. My budget it 500 €uros.

For quality stick to Canon, Nikon, Olympus

Most 3x zooms have reasonably wide angle start, otherwise look for threaded mount to take supplementary

No of shots depends on size of memory card. The one that comes with the camera won't be big enough but you can buy bigger quite cheaply now

Off the top of my head, most cameras in your price range have a wide angle equivalent of 35mm.

The Nikon referred to by 961 will have a 28mm, but when it is released in July will cost about £574. click here

The alternative is to fit a wide angle adaptor, on a camera with a screw thread. I think that some of the Kodak and Olympus cameras have this facilty.
