          hey Sclark how about this olympus how does this camera compare to most I REALLY like and what I want to do with it is take fast moving pictures out doors in the snow for snowboarding and take up close pics. of my boa right up close to her face so that it doesn't blur while at the same time not worry about dropping it in the snow so what do you think? i dont know what all those numbers in the front of the camera mean f=5.8mm F2.8 I think it mean how close you can get in mm and how far you can be but I don't really know so any help there too also here are the specs. for the olympus right now I have a HP photosmart 315 and battery time sucks.

          This is the site thanks!!!!

            My son has the same Olympus camera and he enjoys it. It seems to take great pics. When I bought mine, I went looking for an inexpensive 2MB as all the pics I take are for the web or email. I ended up with a HP from Circuit City for about $100 and I am very happy with it. If I was concerned about making prints, I probably would have gotten a 3 MB but no larger then 4. ;D

              here's a couple pics taken with my Dimage 7i...






              It's an absolutely fantastic camera and would highly recommend everyone picking one up off ebay for cheap. Fantastic quality.

                Hey Steve.Ive taken some decent pics but i think i can go better.Im a film nut and havnt caught on to the digitals yet.I find alot of the times i take pics and only parts of the snake in in focus.How do i get it all in focus?
                I use canon cameras.Rebel 2 right now.Whats the best Macro lens to get for good snake shots and do you suggest wide angle lens?
                Thanks very much.Heres a example of what im talking about.

                    You'd want a smaller aputer (larger aperture number). The bigger the aperture (like f1.8) the less depth that can be in focus (depth of feild). The smaller the aperture (like f16) the more depth that's in focus.
