Hi all,

Just came back from Wal-Mart, where I looked at dc's for a few minutes. I was just amazed at what you can buy these days! You can buy a 3.2mp Olympus w/3x optical for under $150. I remember when something like that would run you close to $500 (ok, not a big feat, as it wasn't that long ago). There were several other comparable cameras from the major manufacturers for that price as well, including a nice little 2mp Nikon. I knew you could get into digital photography quite nicely for under $200, but I didn't know you could do it for under $150....

Now if only the price of those large flat-panel TV's would come down to that level....

Any comments?

Thats the life of technology, as new products and technology come out, the older technology goes down in price. Remember the days when a DVD player cost $1000? now you can pick a cheap one up for $30 bucks.
