Digi-Camera Suggestions Needed..........
« on: April 20, 2004, 01:12:11 PM »
Any suggestions for cameras that fit most of these characteristics?

8-10x optical zoom (is this overkill? Can I hold it still for 10x to come out?)
4-5 megapixel
non-proprietery battery and memory systems
works well outdoors (hiking, wilderness scenes) and at shows

I'm trying to keep the price tag around $500.......

not that this is any help but there's no way you're going to come even close to that price tag with the specs you've got listed above.  i just recently got a casio qv-r40.  4mp and 3x optical zoom.  i like it.

Your camera has everything I want (4 megapixel, runs on AA's, used generic flash memory)  except for the overkill optical zoom and seems to be selling for $250 online.....I should be able to find something w/ the extra zoom for a couple hundred.

Specific options I've seen are:

Olympus C-750 Ultra Zoom (~$400)

Kodak EasyShare DX6490 (~$400)

Nikon Coolpix 5700 (~$500 to $550)
