Among the many web sites that review digital cameras, the best and most useful one I found by far was the Imaging Resource at Especially helpful was the "Dave's Picks" section where you can quickly narrow down your search by how you intend to use the camera or by number of megapixels.
I know how frustrating it can be to choose a camera because I spent untold hours researching them. When I found this site it helped me get to the "bottom line" and find the best cameras among the dozens and dozens available.
Ours is an Olympus C-3020 3.2 megapixel. People are constantly asking what kind of camera we have because it takes such outstanding pictures. It also uses regular size AA batteries and you can go all day without having to recharge.
