Question Camera question

Okay,
I need to buy a digital camera or cam corder. Any body know what to look for? I believe you can get stills from the camcorder. If thats the case I would go for the extra bucks for that.
Thanks for the help.

Dear Tantrum:

I have three free passes left for the TechExpo in NY next week. Wanna watch me drill the Nikon guys on digitals. I know what questions to ask. You are more than welcome to be my guest. This should be interesting.

Default Zoom lens

Jennifer,
If you would, please find out if any manufacturers are coming out with a digital that has a better than 10x optical zoom.
I have a Olympus C 2100 with a 10 X optical but would really like one to go up to 20X optical.
Thanks
marc

Ive got a little MVC300 Sony and am really quite happy with it. Some of the cameras will do MPEG's, mine does, but haven't used it yet.

I use a Olympus e-10. Half the price of the D-1 body alone and does enough for me. 4MP. Can't change the lense but has good zoom quality and 2 add on telephoto lenses. I'm happy with the decision. When they get the d-1 down to a sane price I might bite.

I still have my Nikon FE if I need more

Canon Elura40MC is a good small MiniDV camcorder that will take stills at 1024x768.

Sony PC120 is similar but higher res stills, costs more, and is a little larger.

Both are gooduns if you need primarily a camcorder but want to get stills too.

Lots of the digi still cams can also record a couple of minutes of video if you need primarily a still cam but want some vid ability.

Gdfatha,
Olympus discontinued that camera three months ago with no replacement. There is a 2X add on for the C2100. They were great cameras for only being 2.3 mega pixels.

I NEED ADVICE - PLEASE.

I just got a call from a gentleman that wants to donate a camera - the Nikon DS1 or 4 to www.PowerboatingCharities.com so that I can get pictures to promote the web site.

I can't do this. I can't on behalf of myself accept such a gift. However, I know what it can do.

He said that his corporation would own the camera and I could use it? I don't understand, and I broke my Minolta 7000i at the NY run.

What do I do? I'm just trying to earn a pair of wings here...

Jennifer
