Default SHOULD I BUY AN OLYMPUS 720

I AM LOOKING FOR A NEW DIGITAL CAMERA. I WAS IN CIRCUIT CITY AND THEY WERE PITCHING THE 720. I PLAN ON USING IT FOR PICTURES TO PLACE ITEMS ON EBAY AND ALSO AS MY CAMERA TO USE WHEN ON VACATIONS. I ALSO PLAN ON BUYING A PHOTO PRINTER TO USE TO PRINT OUT THE PICTURES. HOW IS THIS CAMERA. I AM A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED THAT IT HAS NO REMOTE. IS THERE ANYTHING OUT THERE IN THE 4-5 HUNDRED DOLLAR RANGE THAT IS AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER. ANY HELP GREATLY ACCEPTED. THANKS MARC. EMAIL: [email protected]

You may wish to take a look at the Olympus C-730UZ as well, just a little bit costlier than the C-720,
it scores on some features when compared to the 720, whereas most other features seem identical.
Below are the features that are better then the 720

10 x Zoom, Better Continuous Drive, SmartMedia & xD Picture Card Compatability.

hope this helps

I belive the C720 is selling for $499 at Circuit City. You can go to www.dealtime.com and purchase the camera on line for under $400. You could also purchase the C730 for about $450. Either of these cameras will service you well for your intended purpose.

No, go for the 730 instead.
