Re: slightly off-topic...or not (re cameras)
I like the reviews at http://www.dcresource.com/ on par with steves digi-cam. I often jump to the bottom of his review to see what he likes and dislikes, than jump back for the rest if its worth looking at. He has some good search features so you can narrow down your search by model, type, zoom, resolution, etc.

The item appeared on page 5 of the Business section, bylined John Biggs--- titled "Little Cameras With Big Eyes" (a bit cute, but they didn't ask me). It describes and shows 5 (relatively) small digital cameras with "ultrazoom" lenses, that is, with large optical zooms (tho Biggs points out that none of these zooms is in fact as large as the manufacturer's claim, which "requires a camera larger than the latest ultracompact models").
