|Subject: Re: digital camera advice?|
I have been using Nikon Coolpix 990 and I love it. It is not miniature
but still it is smaller than any SLR. Picture quality is great. It can
take hundreds of pictures on one set of 4 LITHIUM batteries. I would still
recommend rechargeable batteries. It has an LCD. It is loaded with controls
and you can get fish-eye, telephoto 2x, 3x, and wide angle attachments.
As for the memory you use flash cards. A 128 MB one will hold about 100
pictures in Fine resolution mode. You can organize/edit/delete pictures
in camera. Memory cards are small enough to take a few of them though
they are a quite expensive. With all the toys and memory cards the camera
gets quite expensive. The other drawback is that the camera is not waterproof.
Happy shooting, Ewa
