    I'd probably go for a better Zoom, at the cost of a megpixel for the same
    sort of money in the Olympus C-750. The 10X optical zoom is an equivalent
    zoom range of 38mm to 380mm

    I think you can get a year or two interest free from Harvey Normans for
    about a grand.

    Although myself I am considering the Panasonic DMC-FZ10 camera, as it has a
    highly rated Optical 12x zoom (Optical stabiliser is supposed to give
    awesome hi zoom pics without a tripod)

    $1299 in Harvey Normans & DSE

  6. The Sony has extra add on Lenses, and comes in Black and records VGA Movie
    Video at 30fps, and a 2.5 " LCD, sun reflective and USB 2..

    The Olympus C-750. is a Old camera by today standards June/2003.

    I have this camera, and it is great. Can't understand why panasonic doesn't
    promote it more.

    Can be a bit grainy in low light, but you use the flash and all is well.

    The zoom is cool, even with a bit of digital zoom thrown in (the 4
    megapixel sensor has enough res to get away with it). Took a picture of an
    apple on the tree perhaps 20 meters away; you could see the dew drops on
    the skin of it, and it filled the frame.

    The Stablisation is cool, but is best with an exposure of less than about
    1/30th sec.

    I'd still rather use CompactFlash over Memory Stick . I think this is
    much the case for most serious digital photographers as well.

    I've seen this argument quite a lot, but I'm unsure what it's about.
    I have both and cannot see the difference - or were the pictures I
    took using the memory stick not serious photos?

    I'd still rather use CompactFlash over Memory Stick . I think this is
    Compact flash are cheaper, and in my experiance, faster then memory stick

  13. All depends on were you get them from, and the Pro version is very fast..

    I believe it comes down to $/MB and also availability of larger capacity
    MemorySticks. CompactFlash/MicroDrives are available in 4GB capacities
    the last time I checked, and I believe there are faster rated
    CompactFlash cards at the top end of the range, allowing faster writing
    to the card which is always helpful when taking photos in RAW mode.
