I've been wondering the same thing...

So I'm glad Jim asked.

Here's my problem: I break things.

I bought a 35mm for $300 a couple of years ago.

I dropped it, then paid another $200 to have it fixed...which was stupid, but I didn't know it would be that much until I got the bill.

Then it started eating film, and the flash started smoking. (I didn't care. I continued to use it until it coughed, sputtered and died.)

Here's my point: given my track record, I'd rather not drop $500 on a digital.

Is there something decent out there for a little less?

nikon coolpix 2200 - costs about $150, and is a great little camera. survives falls well, as i can attest!

I should have known you'd have an answer for me. Thank you.

Key - Check out the Olympus 750. It's a little pricier than the aforementioned Nikon, (around $350) but it's great camera. I've had the earlier Olympus 2000 for about two years and I'm planning on upgrading. (More megapixels). Enjoy. Best, Terry
