    Hi, all

    I'm in the market for a small digital still camera.

    One of my criteria is that the camera should be able to take two or three
    pictures in rapid succession. You see, I often try to take a picture of my
    kids with their cousins, or with a few other family members, and there is
    always at least one kid who sticks his arm across another's face, or who
    wticks his tongue out, or worse...

    So I try to get a few pictures so that if the worst happens, I can use
    Gimp to make aup a nicer family scene.

    According to a document I was reading today, the Olympus µ600 has a
    between-shot delay of 0.6 seconds. This sounds good, and the rest of the
    write-up sounds OK, too.

    Is this the same as what I've seen in the US badged as an Olympus Styles
    600? The spec looks the same.


    Has anybody had one of these to try out? Any recommendations?

  2. This is common to may digital cameras. Panasonic and Nikon also have this
    burst mode.

    Thanks. I suspect that this uses a reduced resolution, depending on the
    number of frames per second.

    What I'm looking for is a camera that will allow two or three shots, with
    a delay of only 0.5 to 0.75 seconds between shots, at full resolution.
