I'm wondering if you've seen this camera: retailer website (http://www.jessops.com/search/viewproduct.cfm?Product=OLY@AZ1K&CFID=5831924&CFTOKEN=16c4115-01520a5a-b2ac-4b48-ac86-9bb1a056c5df)

I'm looking at it. My guess is it's a very ho-hum copy of the Minolta Dimage Xg. There seem to be quite a few cameras coming out now that don't ever seem to be reviewed. My guess is that digital compacts are becoming very common and that manufacturers only bother getting their upper-market models reviewed.

:eek: Rhys! Have you been looking at a camera that uses proprietary battery AND memory?

Hell is in for a cold spell... ;)

I'll admit. I looked at it on their website. I can't say I'd ever wish to lay hands on the horrible thing though.

Whew!

I was worried that we might see a freeze here in the summer months (similar to hell). ;)

The AZ-1 was never sold in the USA. The AZ-2 was supposed to be, but then Olympus changed their minds. In other words, I won't be reviewing either.
