My stepdad is considering to buy a new digital camera to take with him on his upcoming annual hunting trip. He wants something with good quality picture (who doesn't) probably in the 5mp+ range, wants a good optical zoom, I'd say a minimum of 6x would be good for him, and he needs one that takes quick point and shoot pictures. On top of all of this he really wants something with a remote.

So any suggestions?

The Pentax SV is a 5Mp camera with a 5X zoom that has an optional remote.

The Olympus C7000 and the Pentax 750Z are both very compact 7Mp 5X zoom cameras that have optional remotes.

I think the remotes are in the $20 range.

A word of warning. If he expects to set it up in the woods and fire the remote if something comes along I don't think any of these cameras will wake from sleep with the remote.

If he just wants to take a picture of himself with his deer the 10 second self-timers on most cameras would probably be sufficient.

He hates using self timers. He wants to set it so he can put the camera in place then set things up and fire off a few pictures whenever needed withouyt having to worry about getting in position in time. He has had cameras before with remotes and found them really convenient. Thanks for the advice though.
