Welcome to the new Digicam forum. This is not the official Digital Photo User forum (there isn't an official DPU forum any longer), but DPU does link here and so we welcome all visitors to DPU and hope that you find these forums a useful resource for sharing your experiences buying and using digicams and processing your photos on your computer. Now a question from me. I have an Olympus C2000 and am tentatively considering upgrading to a camera with a USB port. I have heard that the USB ports built into cameras can be somewhat problematic. Is this the case? I ask because I find I am constantly taking my smart cards from camera to USB reader and would feel much more comfortable if the smartcard could stay in the camera.
