i own a olympus C-740 love the quality love the zoom hate the time it takes to take a picture. i bring my camera everywhere i go and it is passed around the room and pictures are taken by new people each time. however most cant figure out how to take a picture because it takes so long to take the picture. im asking the forum to advise me on what camera to buy i bought the c740 because i wanted the zoom. what camera is the easiest and fastest at picture taking, at least 3.2 megapixels, and at least 3x optical zoom and under $500 thanks for your help!
