Olympus D-490 Zoom (C990Z) review
I purchased this camera Jan. 2001, so I've had it for about a year-and-a-half and love it! I've taken thousands of photos with it. I can print beuatiful 8x10 photos on my Epson 880 printer. There's a lot of control over the shots IF you read the manual and learn how to use it correctly. The color and detail is wonderful. Have recommended this camera to dozens of people who ended up buying it and love it also. I've had increadibly good luck with battery life - I purchased the NIMH recharger and 2 sets of batteries - I always keep a fully charged extra set with the camera, along with several extra 64mb & 32mb media cards. When I DO upgrade to a higher resolution, it will definitely be another Olympus.
None, really - I got a free Zio Reader with my camera - and that is really the best way to go for fast transfer to your computer. The serial connection is useless...
