:?I'm looking for a good picture quality camera that won't be a problem in the rain (Pacific NW) or on vacation. I have found these 3 cameras, each with its own pros and cons. I'd like to know the difference between the Olympus Stylus 400 and the Stylus 410. Any recommendations between these 3, or others to look at?

There is a substantial difference between the Pentax and the Olympus digital cameras in my opinion. The Pentax digital cameras have adjustable ISO setting and the ISO setting on the Olympus series is fixed. That leaves you with much LESS flexibility in terms of shooting digital photos.

If I'm more of a point and shooter, would you still suggest going with the Pentax?

Yes, I own the Pentax 33WR and like it a lot. It does especially well with macro or close-up photos as it is able to foucus on a subject at less than 1/2"! I use it a lot when taking digital photos of items I sell on E-Bay. Either the Pentax 33WR or the 43WR are excellent digital cameras.
