The Fuji 2600 Zoom at $299 is a great way to start out in digital photography.

Hi,
My friend has the fuji 2600 and I would like to add the following comments about it:
1. Skin tones are somewhat red. It bothers me, but doesn't bother him.
2. The big lens cap is an ergonomic stupidity. I often accidentally push it with my right hand, which draws the zoom back in.
3. Doesn't focus well in dim light.
4. Picture quality is excellent and it produces great looking prints.

Besides, you didn't say what you need the camera for, and whether you are looking for an all-automatic point-and-shoot camera or a more sophisticated one.

A.

Might also check the C-2040Z available at Olympus site for $315, you have to go to refurb digital camera section at thier online store as all they offer is listed in this section, with refurbs identified. It has a f1.8 lens. Might check Steves reviews on both, I always start with conclusion, you will not go wrong with anything Steve recommends.
