I would like to take an expert opinion, my brother is coming from Sweden in a matter of a month and he asked if I wanted anything, I always wanted to have a digital camera, so this is the deal; I have to choose one of these four:

1. Olympus Mju Mini Digital

2. pentax optio s50

3. olympus c-370

4. DiMAGE Z5

I was told that DiMAGE Z5 is the best, what you guys think?

*(The budget is not really much, that’s what I can afford)

Thanks.

Personally I wouldn't look at any of those.

If you can, have a look at Nikon & Canon.

That's a camcorder, not a still camera.

Yes, you can capture stills with digital camcorders, but often they're only 640x480 captures.

If photography is your thing, you want a device dedicated to taking photographs, not video :)

Just go to http://www.steves-digicams.com and have a browse through the reviews there. I think pretty much all of the cameras listed have sample photos with them taken with those cameras, so that should give you a good idea :)
