Default 3 megapix camera...

Hello all,

I would like recommendations on a 3 megapix camera. I'm not particular with any brand just looking for something thatís takes excellent pics. I don't care for bells & whistles. As long as it can hook up to my pc via USB 2.0, have the capability of non propriety storage media so Iím not paying in the most part for a manufactures name (i.e. SONY) & have at least 3x optical zoom. Most importantly something that not over $250.

I have taken a look at this sites review on camera's but I guess I'm seaking the personal side now.

For what its worth I currently own a Minolta Freedom Sightseer Zoom 35mm camera that I LOVE. I only wish it was digital.

Look at the Pentax Optio 450, 550, or 555. These are quality cameras that meet your stated requirements. Also, I just picked up a Panasonic DMC-FZ1 which is 2MP paired with a 12X optical Leica lens. It is awesome. Once you get used to having a long zoom, you will forget all about 3X optical. Good luck

I use a Kodak Dx 6490, now because of the 10x zoom but was quite happy with my dx 6340 before you might look into the kodak line.
