    I'm shopping for a first digital camera for my 31 yr old stepson as a
    gift. I'm a happy Nikon Coolpix owner (my 3rd one), but one thing he
    has said he wants is a higher level of zoom than my Nikon offers.

    Anyone have a recommendation for a camera under $350 that has a zoom
    higher than 4X (non-digital zoom, that is)

    I'm happy with my Fuji Finepix 3800 w/6x optical zoom. It's short comings
    are poor low light autofocus ability(no manual focus), and electronic
    viewfinder fails in both low & bright light conditions. The glass zoom
    performs as well as any with this wide a zoom range and print quality is
    great for a camera in this price range.

    I really like my Olympus c750 ultrazoom - 10x optical and 4x digital (40x
    4 megapixel - or opt for the c740 if you can cope with a 3.1mp cam with no

  7. Get a faster charger and/or at least one extra set of NiMH batteries.
    The charger that came with my C-2100 take under two hours. I always carry a
    charged set with me, even though I never had to change them while shooting.

  8. Olympus C-740UZ and C-750UZ cameras use the xD storage media. Some of the
    cameras needed to have a firmware update if you use the higher capacity xD
    media if memory serves.
