Hi All,

Last time, I had asked for opinion, and I had almost fixed on A95. But I have a problem now - budget. The A95 costs $340 here in India.

Hence, I am once again seeking opinions. Please help me select a low-cost allrounder. The main purpose of this camera would be to accompany me on my trip to Europe.

These are the features that I would like:

1. 3MP or higher
2. Optical Zoom - 2X or higher

I don't mind the size of the camera.

Some cameras that I have heard to be good are the A75, A510, Lumix LC50.

It would be great if you guys could help me out. I would need to make a decision by friday.

Regards,
Anand

Hi: Check on the price of the new little Olympus C595 (probably known as the C500 in India.) 5MP and 3x zoom, very compact with a nice LCD; it's going for only $190 here in the USA. I'm recommending a compact camera in order to keep your costs as low as possible.

Good luck,

Steven R.

Hi Steven,

Thanks a lot for the information. I will definitely check out the Olympus C500. By the way, are there any other cameras in this range which I could check out?

Regards,
Anand

You may also try to find a Fuji E500. It is also a good camera that can be found for under $200 in the USA.

Good luck
