RE: Digitals for flowers?

HI Sally Ann

We bought our camera specifically to take on a trip out of the county and we
love it.  It is so easy to use, and yet have about a zillion other settings
if you want to get really technical.  I use it more as a point and shoot
than anything, adjusting to a macro-focus and turning the flash off of auto
for certain shots.  Anyway- we chose our because it is small, compact, the
is a cover that slides over the lens to protect it when not in use (and the
cover is integrally attached to the camera so there is no chance of losing
it), and best of all it takes double A batteries (so you don't have to deal
with adapters for recharging proprietary battery packs when overseas etc).
Just make sure you get super high capacity NiMH batteries to use regularly-
they last the longest. The ones we use are 1800s and were about $30
w/charger.  Oh, the camera is an Olympus D-550 zoom.  We found the best
prices at CompUSA last year when we bought it.
Hope this helps.

Sorry everyone-hit the wrong button! I have been so crazed with a 70th
birthday party -tons of family, etc etc for the last few weeks that I can
only read...but as my 14th month old grandchild visiting says--"ALL Gone"
Phew!! Loved it but exhausted--just sprayed the roses with milk for their
second coming..hopefully w/out spots & am just sad because in the middle of
all the photo -ops my camera died--which I know means--time to go
digital!..Am very elementary & will love comments about what you all think
is best & I do give lectures on Foreign gardens so needs it to be very
portable & usable in other countries! Thanks for any & all help
