    ...a digital still camera.

    I was looking at the Olympus D490 (2.1 MP, 3x Optical zoom, smart media cards). Any other suggestions for a good camera?

    I've got the Olympus 3030Z, and it is great. It is a 3Mpixel, so it is overkill for web stuff, but it also takes quicktime movies with sound, which is really nice to send movies of the kids to their grandparents. :)

    I think jake wants a camera camera. Not a video camera.

    I'd suggest nothing, because I know nothing about cameras.

    Most can't do sound though.

    It is a great still camera too, I don't use my film camera at all anymore. It and the Nikon 990 are the highest rated digital still cameras (for <$1000.00).

    I still use 35mm because there is something about getting down in the muck and literally screwing with the image...take your bleach your silenium and have fun, except it really stinks
