Olympus c-8080 vs Canon Powershot Pro-1
Hi, I'm in the market for a 8MP camera, so far I narrow my selection down to Olympus and Canon. Can anyone who has experience with these two cameras to advise me which to buy? I know there are generic difference between these two, but my ultimate concerns are 1) Image quality 2) Shutter lag and downtime between shots (with RAW files) 3) ease of use like manual focusing, zoom, changing modes....

Also should I get compactflash card or Microdrive? If compactflash card, will the fast speed cards worth the extra cost?

Thanks for any advise.

which canon??

I cant be a lot of help, i'm thinking between the canon pro 1 and the canon digital rebel, the c-5060a nd the c-8080
and i looked a little at the A2 adn the sony F828.....none of them do everything perfect!!

so anyone out there..i'm interested in the shutter lag esp in low light, the red eyes, and the flash recycle times and buffer...dont you think all the photos look pretty decent from a NON professional view?
