I researched the olympus cameras extensively 2-3 years ago. Olympus had a very expensive stabelized lens IS camera, and introduced the c-2100 ultra zoom which has X10 and IS. Started selling for over $1000, they mass sold to Walmart who sold for $500 when I bought mine. be careful to get one that says CAMEDIA in red on box and camera, it is us compatible files warrenty etc. If missing, it won't work in us with MS software etc.!!!
Many are offered on e-bay and other similar sites. It is a very strong and workable camera. Olympus offers several models now, but none with IS because it is bulky and costs a lot. The new models are small more portable more pixels etc. However, my C-2100 with 2.1 MP prints great 8X10 inch prints from HP PSC 950 and psc 2175xi with high resolution capability.
I would not be afraid to get one on e-bay because they were sold widly, and are not considered too bulky, etc. However have standard lens threads, so easy to add protective uv filter, polorized, even multiplier lenses ect at minimum cost. Also uses standard AA size rechargeable batteries which last hundreds of shots. Software is good, and with a protective carrying case, is pretty portable. ok to e-mail me at email@example.com Chuck
