    Hi everybody,

    Im looking to buy a camera and have got my decision down to three cameras
    that match my needs but now i cant pick between them!!!
    So i was wondering if anybody could help me along the way if you maybe own
    one of the cameras yourself and think theres anything fantastic/rubbish
    about it, or maybe can just see something that seems a particular advantage
    that one of the cameras have and the others dont etc! And if you can think
    of another camera in the price range that would suit me then suggest away!

    The criteria....
    £200-300,
    4mega pixels +,
    must have good macro capabilities without the addition of a lense,
    must be able to accept a underwater housing,
    good battery life,
    strong flash (since used for diving and will be used indoors),
    would be nice to have a range of preset 'modes' to use,
    good if it had the option to add on lenses, or external flash at some point.

    The cameras....
    Canon powershot A80,
    Olympus C-750 ultra zoom,
    Olympus C-5000.


    Cheers,
    Lynsey.

    Hi Lynsey

    I ain't no expert but I wouldn't try for a one size fits all solution

    i'd be tempted into buying one for each specialist use

    but there again, any excuse to buy toys is a good excuse :)

  3. Lynsey,

    As far as underwater housings go, I have a Canon A20 with a factory
    waterhousing made for the camera. The factory unit is alot cheaper than
    having to buy an after market unit or have one custom made.
