volkl-

The Olympus Stylus 800 is very small, produces 8mp photos, has 3X optical zoom. I have attached a photo to show it size in comparision to a CF card.

I have had my Stylus 800 for a week now and am impressed by it.

You might not be familiar with the fact that I have written three best selling books on digital cameras and that I conduct workshop/seminar around the world on digital cameras.

I figure you would want this feedback...

"and she has also flow airplanes."

You are indeed actually correct, if that makes any difference. I have indeed both flown and retired from the Boeing 747, as a full Captain. Is that a big deal? Personally I don't really think so.

Oh I absolutely think it is a big deal.

I'm no pilot - but I would think the dream of many pilots is to fly the 747. For me, well the plane (even though I have never been on one) revolutionized the world. It did for world commerce what the railroads did for the United States. I have an enormous respect for BA and what the 747 has accomplished.

Just the production facility for the 747's is amazing. No internal pillars! But I digress....

My point was the mis-spelling of "flown". I thought you would want to known of that mistake. (Although now that I check there is 23 meanings for the word "flow" so perhaps I am the one who is mistaken and it was not a typo)
