Mick and I bought a Fuji Finepix
2650 back in 2001. We were disappointed that the camera took so long to take a picture and regenerate before taking another picture. It wasn't the perfect camera, but it has lasted us 6 years until recently when I dropped it on the zoom lens. It still works, but the zoom lens zooms cock-eyed and there's something raddling around inside the body. Needless to say, I'm looking for another PnS camera.
Earlier this year, we purchased a E-510 from Olympus
and I was checking out their PnS cameras today. There was one camera that really caught my eye. It was the FE-280
. What really interested me was the movie and voice capability. The 8 mega-pixels are a bit much for a simple point and shoot, but I really can't complain. I would like to find out how quickly it regenerates itself between pictures. I'll have to do some perusing in the camera forums for it information it looks like. I checked the specifications on the Olympus website
and it gives information about the movie function but not for picture taking. It has a rechargeable battery so we'll mostly have to purchase an extra battery for those "just in case" times.
seems like a really nice camera for the price too - $179.00 srp. I would imagine it will go down by the time we're ready to buy.
That's all I have for now,
