"Olympus C-50ZOOM"

The battery has a long life between charges unlike older digital cameras. But there is a limitation to the number of charges.

This is an excellent camera once you have made the initial purchases. The picture quality, using the cameras highest quality settings is as good as a 35mm camera picture.

It can be used in almost any conditions as a pocket size "Point and Shoot" camera

Easy to use, light weight with good quality pictures

The initial 32mb xD picture card is of little use for holidays or extended times away from downloading to a PC. It would be better to include the 128mb xD picture card with the initial purchased camera at no additional cots

The Camera and additional xD picture cards are expensive.

    You don't give any details of the cameras specification but as a user of both 35mm and digital I cant believe that it is as good as a 35mm camera. But hey thats my opinion..Baz

    Sounds like a good camera, a little more detail needed here for top ratings, though. Em x
