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.

|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.
