So we are looking at new cameras on line and reading reviews. My Olympus was only 2 megapixels and technology has changed so much that we are looking at 6 to 8 megapixels now. I always have such a fear of making the wrong choice when purchasing something that will have to last a long time that I read and read and read before buying and still question if making the right decision. Any recommendations from anyone? We are seriously thinking about the Canon PowerShot A630 or another Olympus like the FE 230 or 250. There are so many. We are limited in our choice of vendor at this time and will probably purchase through DH employer and take advantage of the employee discount. We have checked them out on line and the price is comparable with other sources if we take the discount into account.
Speaking of decisions, today we went for the package deal and now have the triple play - cable, internet, and phone services from one provider. We already had digital cable and high-speed internet. Now we have digital phone service, too. Another thing we debated and researched for a while before making the decision. It should save us money for at least the next year. And our internet is even faster with the new modem. We were hooked up today (that's why I was over at Mom's - the dogs had to be outside for the serviceman to be inside and I was trying to distract them by being on the opposite side of the house from where he could be seen going up and down the outside steps). Installation only took about an hour even with a few glitches he ran into and we are now reading more on the DVR for the cable (imagine learning how to "pause" live TV and record on two channels at the same time at my age) and voice mail etc for the phone (the answering machine is still plugged in as I write this).
