Today I think I’m going to do some shopping for a digital camera when I’m taking breaks. Hopefully I can find a good unit for about $200 with USB or FireWire and at least 1.3 megapixels.

camera memory capacity zoom price
Kodak DX-3500 ZOOM Digital Camera 2.2MP 3X Zoom USB 8MB 2.2MP 3x zoom $219.95 review
Olympus Camedia D-370 Digital Camera Bundle 40 total 1.3MP 4x optical $239.95 review
Kodak DX3600 Zoom Digital Camera 8MB 2.2MP 3x zoom $299.95 review
Olympus Camedia D-510 8MB 2.1MP 3X optical $399.95 review

What I’m seeing from the sample photos on this review site is that the cheaper Olympus, while being a good deal, takes pictures that have a lot of warping and fuzz at the edges of the pictures- a cheap lens. The Kodak cameras, while feeling rather cheap and plasticky, take larger and better pictures. The more expensive Olympus is probably not worth the extra $100 right now.

I just found out the company is taking us out to see Lord of the Rings tomorrow at noon. Pretty cool!

Mumia Abu-Jamal got out of the death sentence today; the federal high court decided he needed a new sentencing. Granola hippie kids and stupid liberal Hollywood stars are rejoicing worldwide as we speak.
