    please dont get an olympus, please.


    i dont know specifics about those models as i am not in the market but just make sure you have basic things like white balance and manual exposure controls.

    i have a few freinds with that sony and they are pleased, the best thing about the sonys is how the menus are setup, much more user freindly than nikon or olympus.

    oh yeah and i also recommend staying in three pixel range if you plan on spending that amount of money, four and five has nasty noise problems...

    i would go for that sony if i were you

    I've been doing a lot of research lately, reading reviews, checking specs, looking at different cameras in person, and i'd definitely recommend that camera as well(which is why i'm planning to order it very soon).

    For lots of reviews, specs, buyers opinions and such, go check out www.cnet.com

    It wasn't the best price, but i'm going with one that after shipping is going to cost me $356. There were a few sites that i found it cheaper at, but they were kind of sketchy, so i just went with a reliable site instead and i'll fork out the few extra dollars just to make sure it actually gets to me. I do believe the site is called newegg.com. It was on cnet or dznet and i just calculated the shipping, so it might be a few extra/less dollars for you.

    Sony and Olympus are both middle range cameras, while Canon and Nikon are higher end, especially in the price range your looking for. The Canon A70 is probably the best camera for the money, as it is generally agreed. If you'd like to see the best camera reviews available, please check out www.dpreview.com .

    downside to that canon a70 is it uses normal batteries, where as for a little bit more loot you can get a camera that uses a lithium ion battery, which to me is well worth it.
