I have had the Olympus C-740UZ for a little over a year and I like it very much. It was my first jump into digital photography. I just recently purchased the Canon 300D. Anyway,
I still use the Olympus occasionally at work and I think it takes very nice pictures, some I have posted on Viewfinder. You can use an "Auto" setting that will take care of everything.
It has a "Program" setting, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual settings. It is an easy and comfortable camera to use. Macro mode and White Balance options. I upgraded to the Canon because I wanted more versatility and creative choices but I do like the Olympus and I think you would find the 750 UZ a good useful camera.
Just my 2 cents worth.
