Last year I bought a Olympus C-3000 3.34  Megapixel digital camera. I 
think it is over kill for what most people need. I am not a pro.
A 2.1 megapixel is a good size to buy. I can take 3 pictures  Tiff's 
2048 X 1536 res. on a 32 mb card thats a 10 mb file. It uses 
Smartmedia cards that come in 8 - 128 mb size. Some cameras use 
compactflash cards that come in cards up to 256 mb ( about $ 7000 for 
that card)Mine has so many features it is hard to use. Look for a 2.1 
that is easy to use. Check the warranty. On similar cameras Olympus 
had one year. Sony had 90 days.

If you do get one don't carry in in a camera bag on the truck bumper 
for 16 miles on a curvy mountain road. And if the guy behind you 
keeps blowing the horn he might not be crazy. Luck was with me that
