I'd like to say I made an intelligent decision about my first digital camera, 
but a friend gave it to me while upgrading.  It's an Olympus D-395.  It uses 
AA cells and works very well with Kubuntu.  Although it's not a top of the 
line camera, I'm very happy with it.  It's probably a bit older than last 
year's model, but I'm not sure.
