I need a digital camera for self-taking digital pics of me and trophy fish at night. It must have a remote.
* Budget $200.
*Size - Not important.
* 3-4 megapixels
* Image quality 7 out of 10
*Manual controls preferred.
*General Usage: Self taken pics of me with big fish (hopefully! ) at night.
Mostly pics will be for posting on the web with a few prints 8x10 rarely. Occasionally they will be used for magazine articles.
* I like Canon but the new ones are way out of budget (older models?)
*I already have in mind the Olympus stylus 300,410 and 500.
*I would like the following features:
aa batteries, optical viewfinder, great red-eye control (either in software or camera), water resistivity, easy to use beefy controls and some kind of lens protection.
*It must have a tripod mount and a remote.
I am not necessarily looking for a new camera. An older, good quality model will fit the bill, and I won't be so worried of dropping it in the mud.
Any help you can give will be greatfully accepted.
