[Killietalk] Phish Photos
For those hopelessly hooked on P&S cameras, take a look at the new
Pentax offering, the Optio 550.
With $50 rebate it isn't horribly out of range for many. ($439-50 = $389)
It has most of the manual controls of a pro-sumer camera combined with
shirt-pocket size. I'm impressed with battery life, IR remote (good for
available-light fish pics), 5X zoom and general usefulness.
The lens is too slow, so you may need a good external slave flash for
most fish pics. Oh well, can't have *everything* in a
postage-stamp-sized camera. :-)
Worth a look to see if it does what you want. See the review at
