hard choise
I don't know why , but since the first time, when i realized that I like photography, I have become a fan of Olympus.
Anyway, I have no expierence in photography, but I want to start and I'm looking for my first camera.I would like to do pics in the nature, mainly landscapes and wild life, but my budget is very low, so I can afford to spend 200-220 for a good camera.I have been looking for Oly C4000Z, Oly Stylus 300 and 400(but they have not enough big zoom) and C 750,(but after the topic for dead pixels I don't know :? )>So advice me please, which is better or to go for Canon A80 or Fuji S5000UZ.I'm keen only for a pics quality and a good zoom that will allow me to make pics in the nature)(landscaps and wild life)
Thank you very much in advance!

A80 probably take way better pictures but the s5000 have 10x zoom instead of 3x. So I don't understand how you should be able to compare them.

Even though the S500 also has an AF-assist lamp, the A80 should perform better in lowlight because there's a lot less glass in its 3x lens compared to the S5000's 10x lens. They are very different cameras - the A80 is more versatile, but I should think the S5000 would produce better wildlife pics. Note the S5000 is only 3Mp, while the A80 is 4Mp. My brother is very happy w/ his A80 - but the S5000 has gotten good reviews. Note, however, that Fuji's JPEG compression is more aggresive than most manufacturers.

Thank you!
But what do you think about OLy C4000Z or Oly C740?Could you please recomend me, which is probably the best camera in this price range(200-220($340)) with good zoom at least 6 times and a good pics quality,because I'm really confused :oops:
Thank you in advance!

Isn't c-760 the c-740 upgrade?
Ylou can find the c-760 on this swedish webpage (althought you will be possible to see/understand the facts and the test images).

- got larger ccd and therefor probably less noise.
- starts of at 32mm wide where the c-760 starts at 42, c-740 might be 38.
- seems like that f-number ends at 11 for the c-4000, i think it's 8 on the c-760.
- (they also have a test of the c-750)
