Maddie's Digital Cameras are the best way to get started in the Digital Photography World.
D-340L Digital Camera
If you're thinking of buying a digital camera, you're probably after one of several practical benefits: the instant gratification of downloading your pictures into your computer rather than taking the film to the corner drugstore; the convenience of having your pictures in digital form, ready to zap off to friends and family in e-mail or post on the Web; and the ability to store thousands of images on computer disks instead of in cardboard boxes in the closet. The Olympus D-340L offers these benefits and one more you might not have thought of--it's a lot of fun to use.

Looking for a digital camera you can use without carrying along a computer as well? Because it allows direct image storage on a floppy disk, the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 is a terrific option for people who want a digital camera for travel or camping. Though it's bulkier than most point-and-shoot models, it's fairly light, and the well-labeled buttons and various picture effects (pastel, negative, sepia, and black-and-white) make it both easy to use and fun to experiment with. The 2.5-inch LCD screen on the back of the camera allows easy subject framing and fast viewing and deletion of images. Its brightness is controlled with a simple button. The camera operates in both standard and fine image-quality modes, and with the macro switch on objects as close as three inches can be photographed with minimal loss of image sharpness.
