Alan, You will soon be overwhelmed with our personal choices - cognative dissonance reighs. I use the Nikon 885 @3+MP and like very much the combination of resolution, weight and form factor. Its currently out of your budget, but I would recommend stepping up to the 3MP range. I can get an acceptable 11x14 from a full image and an outstanding 4x6 from a portion of an image. This latter capability is great when you are shooting pictures of [quick] grandchildren. Don't forget to include in your price calculations, extra rechargable batteries, charger and possibly a faster download device than the camera cable. The 2 batteries, charger and pc-card cost me an additional 100usd. I recently was in Mexico. I took 3 128MB flashcards and my extra battery / charger. In 3 weeks I took 600+ pictures and thanks to the law of large numbers, wound up with quite a few ++good images. If I had taken my film camera, I probably would have had 100+ pictures. BTW, I found a camera store that could make a CD from my flashcards, thus I could re-use them. Good luck in your quest, Tom Sawyer At 11:39 PM 5/29/02 -0400, you wrote: >Alan, >We use a Sony DSC-S30, which is only 1.3 megapixels, but have been >extremely happy with ours.
