RE: Digital Camera Recommendation?

        You won't get this till I get back to San Angelo on Monday - I can receive
but not send for some reason using NetZero. Make a list of how you are going
to use your camera, then compare the different ones. I love my Sony Mavica.
Top of my list was taking pictures for desktop publishing and being able to
share them quickly. Often I am called to take photographs of things for the
Development Assistant at the museum, and being able to hand her a disk
rather than running back to CAM (5 blocks between two museums) downloading
from the computer, saving to disk, and running back.

        Also go with the best resolution you might need. You can always reduce the
size of the file using PSP 7.0 or PhotoShop, but you can't ever increase the
resolution from the orginal.

Subject: Digital Camera Recommendation?

Greetings all...

I am probably going to purchase a digital camera for myself in the next
couple of months (getting tired of always asking permission to borrow the
schools--and I want one for when I go to MAE "camp" this summer) and am
wondering if anyone has one that they absolutely love (or hate for that
matter) Pros and cons?

I've been doing a lot of research. I want a camera that is cheap enough to
haul around and not worry about, but good enough to grow with me.

I'm leaning towards the Olympus 860L as it is a 1.3 megapixel, but will also
take simpler shots for web pages. It comes with a 8 mg card, as USB
reader/writer and some software that I don't need.

Any stream of consciousness blurts are welcome and appreciated.
Feel free to e-mail me privately about this as well.
