Any recommendations (optical zoom, adjustable shutter/aperture)

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Curtis Desjardins, Apr 16, 2004.

  1. I'm looking for a DC that fits my needs, yet have no idea where to
    look first.

    First (and most important) is a good optical zoom. The usual 3x OZ is
    useless to me, as is DZ. And since I plan on using it for sports shots
    mostly, I want to be able to adjust the shutter speed to avoid any
    blurry action shots.

    Those are a must, but following is just a bonus; Adjustable aperture,
    Macro ability, and (if possible) a way to shoot off a burst of several
    shots with one touch of the button.

    There particular models out there that have (some of) these functions?

    There any websites where I can plug in the specs of what I need, and
    have it come back with some possible candidates?

    Any help, or pointers/websites to where I can find some, is

    I just bought a Dimage Z1 that seems to do everything you ask,
    although you don't specify what price/performance range yo are looking
    at. ,

    Just offhand, the Kodak DX6490 and Olympus C750 have what you want. Try

  5. It's not a factor. I've got the cash to pony up for just about
    anything I need.

    Thanks to those who offered suggestions and links. Now I just have to
    do the actual research.
