I want to buy a very small camera and am ready to buy the Cannon S500 Dig elph but would prefer something like that that has a wide angle lends, 28-110mm for example.....(35mm equiv)



Anyone know of any available?



Thanks in advance.

Look at the Olympus 5060 or 8080 both have wider than 28mm

The problem with those is that they are large, and expensive. back in the days of film cameras, 3 or 4 years ago, you could get a small reasonably priced wide angle camera....I am hoping that they make a digital version.....

A28-114 equiv lens is in the now oldish Nikon 5400. It is being discouned quite a bit now selling around 700$cdn (I paid 1200$cdn when it was first new).

Should put it injust around the 500$us range.

Everyone has overlooked the Canon S series cameras with 28/110 lenses. Depending on your budget, but I would take the S60 which has now been superceded by the S70 but the extra megapixels will count for nothing unless you are making enlargements bigger than A4. Price is dropping to about $350 nowadays.

Hope this is of use
