Need >3MP with 28mm lens

by Markomyt1 / August 1, 2005 3:12 AM PDT

I take a lot of shots of the inside of houses and need to have a fairly wide angle lens. My current camera has a 35mm lens and is too "big".
I only need 3MP and I prefer SD card storage.
Any ideas are appreciated.

3MP 28mm lens

There are not a lot of wide angle cameras available.

To my knowledge, there is no 3 megapixel cameras with a 28mm focal length.

There are 7 cameras - that have 7 or 8 megapixels.
So I have ruled them out.

That leaves 4 cameras:

Fujifilm E500, 4 meg
Fujifilm E510, 5 meg
Nikon 5400, 5 meg
Canon S60, 5 meg

None of them use SD memory cards.
The Fujifilm cameras use xD Picture Cards
The Nikon and Canon use Compact Flash Cards

Here is a comparison of specifications:

Thank you, I am going to give the Nikon a serious look.
