Olympus C-4000 Zoom review
All of my shooting has been since 77 of 'close ups' and macro. This is the king of this type of shooting. Since I started using the Oly 4000 I've yet to find a camera that can do as well - Selling my Coolpix 950 (2 megipixel too small) and getting another Oly 4000. (backup)
IF you only print at home 8X10s 4 megipixel is more than enough and inkjet gives you total control, you CAN NOT beat the macor abilities of the Oly 4000.
Shooting (and printing) TIFFs the memory card is small, big deal, I've got 3-128s, but careful changing outdoors!
True is is slow but chases down flowers and such just fine.
