I am looking to get my wife a digital camera for her birthday and being that i have never owned one wanted to get some opinions
she does not need anything fancy and will mostly use it for posting her craft work items on the net
i would like to keep it in the $300 to $400 range,i
see quite a few photos here and was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or some things i should stay away from
Thanks, Ted

I know squat about digital cameras, but if you scroll down to the bottom of this page you will see on the right hand side another website along the lines of this one. Check it out, it's pcphotoreview, and I bet you'll find some help there.

I've been very happy with my Olympus C-700. I've used several different Olympus digitals and have been impressed with them all.
Things to look for:
*Optical zoom (Dont worry about digital zoom)
*Megapixels, The more the better. You shouldnt need more than 3 Megapixels unless she wants to print large oversize pictures.
I would recomend the Olympus C-720. It has 8X optical zoom and is over 3 Megapixels. If you look around online for a refurbished one you can get it in your price range. $300-$400 will get you a pretty nice camera these days.

...there was a thread about a week ago on this topic that should give you plenty of help.
