Default Stylus 330 or D560 or C4000 --- HELP!

Hello Everyone :lol:

I'm new to this forum and have some questions for anybody that has the time to answer them.

I am looking at 3 different Olympus cameras that include the Stylus 300, the D560 and the C4000. While I realize that the C4000 is a 4mp camera and the others are only 3mp, I would like some advice as to what camera would best suit a novice like myself. Additionally, I want good photos (don't we all )without to much bulk or complication.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance for everyone's time. 8)

I would go with the C4000, it has auto mode and manual setting that will allow you to grow with the camera.

Out of those cameras I'd choose the 4000 too (although it wasn't my personal choice), the Stylus is a weather resistant camera.

Each camera has its pluses and minuses, and YOU have to decide which features are most important.

I just went through the very same decision dilemma recently, except I wasn't cosidering the C4000, since I own a C3040 and C730 already. I wanted a compact cam to replace my 2mp 520. But some of the specs for the 300 and 560 were not that great, like the slow lens (F3.1) on both, the lack of manual control, no movie sound, only 85,000 pixels on the 560 LCD, and special battery used on the 300 which costs $70 for a spare. If compact size is not an issue for you, the C4000 is the best choice. I went for the now discontinued D-40, which is still available new. It's a super compact cam, basically the C4040 stuffed into a tiny package, less threaded lens and external flash. This thing is a fully loaded powehouse. Since I only got it today, I can't really give you a full review yet, but so far a few test shots look great. Check out the specs on it, you may find it to be just what you are looking for.

No contest, the C4000, Phil's hit the nail on the head.
