hi all
i'm new to the forum and i was trying to choose between these 3
CANON A400
PENTAX OPTIO 30
OLYMPUS C-310 (DX540)
(all for under 300aud)
(AUSTRALIAN availability is questionable)

I'm after a camera for super close work
(details on models etc)

as well as decent landscape and reliability

they all seem to review well so i was wondering what you guys think:-)

Canon A400 does great Macro work as well as overall

landscape.. I just got the A400 and I'm satisfied with the

camera. Photo of flowers below was taken with theAF-assist beam flash indoors.

Great camera for the little cost. Just found that the manual could have

had larger print for us old folks. Good Hunting .. Neil:-)

konica-minolta z-10 is a good camera with 1cm macro. It might be a bit above your budget. it retails i think for about $220 us dollars, but it is excellent value full amnual controls and 8x zoom, with an in body lens.

thanks for your replies

i decided to buy the OPTIO 30

and am glad i did .excellent 1/2in macro.....great for models and minuitai

great features, manual as well as auto plus a historogram

3 weights and good adjustable whitebalance
reasonable batterey eating.......(NIMH an essential)
worth a lot more,
well kept little PENTAX secret
(dont think they want it to outshine there more expensive models)

couldnt be happier

thanks guys
