    Be careful about what you buy for the C-750. Olympus uses a propritary XD picture card which is not compatable with other cameras. The XD is much smaller.
    Go online and shop around, you can get 256 XD cards for about $60 + $5 shipping. It really makes me mad that they charge that much for shipping something that is smaller than a postage stamp.
    By the way, the 750 can get as close as 1.6" without any additional lens and has a fantastic (10x) zoom. There are some pics on my PFT album site

    Yeah, my statement was not very clear, too much sun over the weekend.
    What I was trying to say was; the Olympus and the newer Kodaks use the XD card and I was just trying to caution you not to accidently order the old style memory cards. The price of an XDs is a bit higher but are coming down quickly as it is becoming the new industry standard.

    You have to buy an Olympus XD card if you want to use the panorama feature, and I think the cards cost a little more. I don't use that feature, so I have a Fuji card. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I like the panorama feature...mom likes that feature in the fall to get a huge area of trees in all the colors. But she gets the old digicam now.

    If you don't mind me asking, how big of a hole did this make in your pocket?

    The camera was (rounded) $530 xD card was $82 (rounded) case was $13 (rounded) and thats it. So rough total of $625.

    BTW, pat, you have any trouble with dust getting in the electronic viewfinder? I tried compressed air but it seems it got by the diopter wheel and is on the mini screen in there.

    Thanks!
