    I have Kodak Easy Share DX4330. My big complaint is the lens cap. I don't like lens caps. It doesn't stay on well, etc. I am thinking of replacing it with a weatherproof camera that I can take in the rain, etc and not worry about getting it wet. Olympus makes a couple. Pentax also makes a waterproof camera but I think I read some pros and cons on that. Any opinions on the Olympus Digitals?

    The lens actually does but it still needs to be kept clean requiring the lens cap. I actually like the clam shell cover and I am still interested in a weatherproof unit.

    I had actually read several negatives about the view finder on that camera. My Kodak lacks the 'little doors" over the lens. I have a Pentax with the iris type closure, its a 35 mm. The little doors broke and I have had to push them open when I turn the camera on. They do not close all the way. The cost of repair exceeds replacement so I bought a 35 mm weatherproof Olympus 35 mm. (sometimes I just like film) with a clam shell closure. I prefer that type of closure because the lens is always protected and its almost failure proof.
