Just bought the Nikon CoolPix 2500 for the wife last fall. Great little camera 2.0 mega pix, small, rechargeable batt and easy transfer. Easy to adjust pic size to drop to the board.

I bought one of the first digital Cams for consumer use
back in 94 it was 1.4 megapixel and cost 1399.95
Olympus never had a problem, it was slow and had
poor indoor focus, but made great outdoor shots
printable up to 5 x7, more recently
I had to get the worlds fastest Olympus camera
it is a E-100 RS very rare, pixel rating of only 1.51
But it had a optical Zoom of 10x and a 15 Fps 1/10000 sec
shutter speed, in other words it Stopped action
for motocross , boats or nascar this is the only camera
for sports, sure there is the New Nikon price 1199
good camera, but the 2 year old E-100RS is still the worlds
fastest, print quality is very acceptable up to 8x10
this goes with me to all action events and I'll
be picking up one of those new Nikons too
to drag to some weddings
file size does matter but its the performace that Counts

http://www.steves-digicams.com/2002_...nikon5700.html
my second choice and its availble something that you can find
if you have the money get the Nikon around 1100
the olympus is only avaible as a refurb or on ebay around 500

I am not going to recomend any paticular camera or place to buy. The reason I won't recomend a camera is because as you can see everyone has their own opion. Secondly it is up to the buyer to make sure it not only fit his/hers needs but also feels right to them.
A word about where to get the best price, that too varies by which camera you choose.
The best thing I can recomend is to learn a bit about them.
2 good sites for that are:
1. http://www.dpreview.com/
and
2. http://www.agfanet.com/en/

Both have lots of information on what all the terms mean and what to look for.

Best of luck

I like the Olympus, been foolproof for the past 3 years.
Although you can get 500 pics on a 64M card, I shoot everything at the highest resolution JPG. That way if I do manage to get a pic I really like I can blow it up. I have a few that I had "developed" by ofoto that are 20X30. You can't do that if you shoot low res. Also, if you have a pic you can crop it down and still get a decent picture out of it.
