    Does anyone have any experience with the Olympus Stylus 600 or any digital cameras made by Olympus?
    Is this a good brand to trust?
    It looks pretty good compared to the Sony CyberShot S600, but I wanted to know what you think.
    Thanks in advance. :)

    One mile up and soaring
    I looked at the olympus line when picking up my digital recently, but something about them didn't appeal to me as being the complete package. I got a Sony Cybershot DSC-T30. The thing is awesome. If it's too pricey for you, I would recommend the W70 or W100, they were my second choice. I found a lot of info at The Digital Camera Resource Page. They have reviews, buyer's guide, and a chart with almost every camera, resolution, screen size, memory and best price (though the price thing gets messed up).

    Thanks for the info.
    That HP Photosmart R967 looks nice. :D
    Can someone explain what ISO is? I have an understanding of it, but I'm still kind of confused.:confused:
    I really like that Olympus camera, lol, but I think I read somewhere that it was released early last year, so is it probably too outdated?

    I haven't actually used either but I have heard very good reviews about the DSC-S600

    That Sony camera does look very good, but it doesn't have too many features.
    Some more questions lol :):
    What is a very reliable brand for digital cameras?
    What do you think, in your opinion, to be the most effective camera brand?

    For that level of camera, I usually recommend something from Canon's Powershot A-Series. Good prices, lots of features, great auto settings, but also plenty of room to experiment. Great video mode, too.

    ISO numbers relate to the sensitivity of the camera's image sensor.

    Lower ISO settings give you pictures with less noise but require more light or slower shutter speeds.

    High ISO settings let you shoot in lower light or at faster shutter speeds but make noisier pictures.
