Confessions of a (pixel) size queen.

Well I was a nice husband and let John take my Camera with him this weekend. After all he is going to be seeing people he hasn't seen in 20 years. I never let anyone use my camera or my car. I'm just really posessive of those two things. He still hasn't driven my car and it's been a year. Well he asked if he could use the camera and I said sure. I've been thinking about planning on getting a new one, so if he breaks it I'll just go shopping. My friend Derek just went to Europe for 26 days with his wife. Before he went he bought a new camera, and yes, he has bigger pixels than me. My camera is a 3.1 megapixel Olympus C-3030 which I bought when they first came out and paid way too much for. So Derek buys a 5 megapixel camera for his trip to Europe and the pictures are great.

I've been looking at cameras ever since we decided we would go to Alaska. So I am going to buy an 8 Megapixel camera. Yeah bitches I'll have more pixels than you!

Well this morning I did some checking of my mad money and I have enough to buy this:


The costco website shows it at 799.00 shipping and handling included. I saw it in the store the other day for 899.00 so I may just have to order it. Still need to do some checking around cause I do like the Olympus 8080 and Sony has one too.

hey guy, let me know which you decide on, because I'm searching for the best digital camera money can buy as well, and I want mine to have the ability to do manual focus.

good point. I was looking at macro but haven't checked on Manual Focus. I will have to download the manuals and peruse them.

if you're going to spend that much money you might as well get the Canon Digital Rebel. Nobody beats Canon lenses and I think it's a 6.3 megapixel. The nice thing about the rebel is that it's camera AND lens (unlike many Canon cameras) so it's the whole package for 1,000. Canon makes such excellent cameras so you might want to check it out.
