    Hey all, I've been looking into buying a new camera for myself as a christmas present to me and i have decided on 3 candidates.

    1. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2
    6 Megapixels, 12x Optical zoom.

    $ 430 CAD

    2. CANON PowerShotS3 IS Package
    6 Megapixels, 12x zoom,

    Comes with batterys, battery charger, carrying case

    $550 CAD

    3. Olympus SP-510 UZ
    7 Megapixels, 10x zoom
    $ 350 CAD

    I will mostly be using these cameras to take pictures of paintball stuff and very small things, like baby tarantulas

    Right now I have a 4 megapixel camera and it is fine at taking pictures of things like landscapes or human beings, but it really sucks at taking pics of things small.

    Will any of these help me with the photography of small things?
    Thanks in advance AB

    I bought my daughter a Canon S2 IS for her graduation a couple of years ago and I must say that I am impressed with the camera. I would imagine that the S3 is also a very good camera. You may want to take a look at the reviews for these cameras at www.dpreview.com.

    IMO I would choose either the Sony or the Canon anyday over the Olympus brand. But I would still check out the customer reviews for each of these cameras in the web, so you can have an idea of what to expect from them.
