Camera people

Thinking about buying a camera, general use, not wanting to spend a ton of money.

I have narrowed it down to two camera's.

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/spec...canon_a550.asp

Anybody have any thoughts? any similar camera's that you think would be better?

The olympus is absolute junk. You will be unhappy with it.

The Canon takes better photos, but it has much less zoom range.

Go with the Canon for sure, better lens quality and better sensor.

Well, i finnally got around to buying a new camera a canon a570 with chdk hack, not the dlsr like I was hoping for, but I'm happy with it none the less. Maybe when I figure this one out, I'll move up to a dlsr.

A few sample pics of the car on a nice day.
