    Good Digital Cameras?

    I was wondering if any they make any good digital cameras now for under $300.

    The main thing im worried about is the 'shaking' of your hands when taking a photo. I know digital cameras can be a ***** because you must be perfectly still in order to get a good picture. Are there any cameras that are a little lenient on stillness while snapping the shot?

    Look through the olympus range, and find anything which complies to your budget. I've had the best experiences with their products.

    I 2nd CenturionStrategy's notion. Olympus make top quality camera products and you won't be disapointed.

    All the pictures on CenturionStrategy's web page are taken by the Olympus D-360L camera.

    It's in your price range, too

    When I tryed to buy my daughters an Olympus 360 like the one I had, they were not available any more so I had to get them a
    510Z. And it is even better than the 360, the last time I saw an ad it was in the $300 range. Staples I think.
    You can't go wrong with Olympus.

    I have two Olympus digitals.... a C-2100UZ (2.1mp with 10x image stabilized lens) and a C-3040Z (3.3mp with 3x zoom, 1.8f stop) and love them both. For the money I don't think you can beat them. Only ones I'd consider trading up for would be the new Canon D60 or Nikon D100 digital SLR's with interchangeable lenses.

    Sony DSC-P1 3.3 MP and under $300. One of the best I had seen.

    Either that, or they really are good

    Yea the Olympus Camedia's are pretty good. I am a personal fan of the Sony Mavica because it save the images on a floppy disk, or a mini-cd if you want to spend that much. I hate those frickin' Smart Media cards... But I would put my vote for Olympus as being good quality/low price.

    Sony got burned on the Beta vsd Vhs deal so they are trying to creat a propritary standard with the memory stick. I will not buy a Sony either.

    Check out B&H's site for fair prices and any camera you could want.

    Why would you write your digital photos to a floppy. Hello, 1.44MB! Get Compact Flash, they're cheap and have more capacity than any other format (512MB I think).

    Olympus are good, but I love my Canon A20.
