I purchased a new Olympus 480 Camera today for 200 Euros, it has a 3 optical and 4 digital zoom, I will be taking photos with this soon. The Sony I add broke, the lens just stopped going in and out, I have been using my waterproof Sony for a few weeks, the flash on it is broken. I tried to buy another of the waterproof Sonys however the camera shop says I need to go to Ebay.com. Lot of good that will do me as a traveler.
It included a 256 Meg card for the 200 Euros, what a pain in the neck.
I am tough on camera, I take everywhere they say not to go, what is good though the price to play with similar quality a couple of years ago was 700 Euros, so I am way ahead of the game now at 200 Euros.
