Any tips on a good 3 megapixel camera for around $300.

Fuji 3800 is a good camera with a 6X lens. 6X means 38x228 zoom in 35mm camera terms. F2.8 Aperture. Shop around for your best price. Donít forget you will need a larger memory card than the included unit (extra cost with any camera).

Also check the Olympus D550. Not as strong a Zoom but a good camera and a little less money.

Thanks for the help. I got the Olympus for $260 at Staples by showing them a competitors price, they were out of stock and ordered it online for me and they gave me a AC/DC black and white tv and duffle bag for spending more than $150 online. I won't have it until Tuesday, but look forward to its arrival. Thanks again.

I got my Fuji S602 at Staples and saved a bunch by showing them an on line ad. They price matched and gave me 10 per-cent of the difference. Staples is a great place to shop.

I have saved a lot of money by bringing ads into staples. They told me that starting next week they are putting restrictions on matching Internet ads. They will still match prices like Best Buy etc. That is too bad, I have saved a lot of money thanks to their former price matching policy.
