Time 2 Upgrade



I have been using the same old Kodak DC240 for about 5 years now along with a first generation DV Camcorder, and it is now time to upgrade.

I am looking for a digital camera that will take about 5 minutes of video as well as produce pictures good enough for 10 x 8 prints.

After a quick look at the reviews I was left with the following:

Pentax Optio 550

Konica Revio KD-500Z

Canon Powershot S50

I was then blinded by technobabble:confused: gave up and went for a :smoke:

Can anyone offer any advice or suggestions, before I end up going to PC World.:suicide:


Pentax eh, look @ Pentax Optio S with three megapixels and a 3x zoom. find link here

the Canon ..see G5 or 300d REBEL DSLR @ £800 tho
Canon PowerShot S1 IS brand new model

Konica has very basic features, so no.

As i said b4
