Need Advice About Digital Camera's

Fri Jan 30, 2004 7:51 pm

Hello

I am searching for a good digital camera with at least 4,0 million pixels and minimum of 7x optical zoom. My question is: Does any of you have experience with digital camera's (I think so because I see a lot of names near the pictures). What is a good camera for a reasonable price to make runway and taxiway shots?

Hope somebody can give me some advice.

I would suggest the Olympus C750.
10x optical zoom, 4Mp.

Very good camera for taxiway/still shots, capable of good results in night pictures...
Also not bad in action shots.

The C-750 is a very nice camera that take good-quality pics.
The only problem is, it costs 750 Euro in Elbonia.
And for that kind of money, you can have this :

Which can provide his type of image quality :
