Pentax Optio 450

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Carole MacDonald, Apr 13, 2004.

  1. After accidentally breaking all 3 latches around the battery door of
    my Olympus C-2040Z, I'm in the market for a new digital camera. Basic
    requirements are:

    1) Better than 3x zoom
    2) Smaller than Olympus C-2040Z
    3) Cheaper is better :) (preferably $350-400)

    Originally looked at the Olympus C-740, Fuji S3000, Minolta DiMAGE Z1,
    but those are all as large as the C-2040Z. Then I found the Optio 450
    and it seems to fit the bill. Does anyone have any good/bad
    experiences with this camera? I'm a little concerned that many places
    don't carry Pentax cameras and of those that do, most don't carry the
    450. Is it being discontinued?

    Also, does anyone have any opinions about Willoughby's? They seem to
    have the best price and fairly good ratings. Otherwise, I'll probably
    go with B&H, which is slightly more expensive but seems to have better
    customer service and return policy.

    Thanks,
    Carole
