Does it look that bad? I used my 1.3 megapixel Fuji with 3x optical zoom to snap the picture, then I cropped it. For some reason the original pic on my computer looks just a little better than the one I get when I view the page here on clublexus.com.
I'm shopping for a bigger zoom camera. I'm looking seriously at the Olympus C700 class cameras with 10x zoom. I might instead opt for something with image stabilization, like the Panasonic DMC-F1Z.
