Olympus C-765 UltraZoom


The CAMEDIA C-765 Ultra Zoom is the world's smallest 10X optical zoom, 4.0 megapixel digital camera (as of April 2004). It's an all-in-one camera solution for photographers who want the widest focal length range plus manual and automatic controls in a rug

Overall, the Olympus C-765UZ is an excellent camera. It produces sharp, well exposed images. The camera is both stylish and durable thanks to its metal body. Controls are well placed and easy to use. With a wide variety of exposure modes, the C-765UZ can

Olympus Camedia C-765 Zoom Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights


The Olympus C-765 Ultra Zoom is the latest in an ongoing line of long-zoom digicams from Olympus. While the long-zoom market is getting more crowded these days, Olympus really pioneered it with their excellent C-2100, and still retains a commanding...

Olympus C-765 / C-770 Ultra Zoom


The Olympus C-765 and C-770 Ultra Zooms are updated versions of 2003's popular C-740 and C-750 cameras. For 2004, they've received a sleeker body, the TruePic TURBO engine (for better performance and image quality), MPEG4 support (C-770 only), and...

Excellent photo quality ; Compact metal bodies (considering the size of the lens) ; Many manual controls ; My Mode feature lets you store favorite settings to spot on mode dial ; Conversion lenses supported ; Remote control included [C-770 only ; Hot...

Poor low light focusing, no AF-assist lamp ; LCD/EVF too dark to be useable in low light ; Full shutter speed range only available in "M" mode ; Full manual only on CD ; Image stabilization would be nice

Regardless of which one you choose, both of these Ultra Zooms are great cameras.

Owners Opinion: Olympus C-765 UZ (soyeah, 20 Feb 07)


I bought it in Jun 2006, for just about USD128 at a large discount. I think its value is very very high for the money I paid for it. Its image quality is great!!! I love its flash, which is powerful. Flash always make people's face pale in many DCs....

Have this camera for more than a year, and took more than 15.000 photos with it. I'm really satisfied with the image quality. 90% of the time I shoot in P mode, ISO64, with -0.3 to -0.7 exposure compensation. In bright sunshine a circular-polarizing...

Owners Opinion: Olympus C-765 UZ (nbarr, 30 Jan 06)


This is the camera I have been using for more then a year, and I must say it is an excelent camera. I have used it in all kinds of situations, from bird photos to notmal vacation photos, and it allways handed quite well.

After more than one year of using it, the only problems I feel are ; Slow auto-focus when the subject is moving ; In a forecast day, with a person that has red hair, the photo gets a little purple hue

I bought my camera just over a year ago after trawling the internet and decided this was the best, i have taken many quality pictures mainly at gigs and concerts and believe me they look professional and never cease to amaze. Unfortunately it's now...

First of all I'm not a professionist photographer. My experience in digital photo is about 3 years or more. Since I've been looking for long zoom range cameras I had to choose from some models by various manufacturers. The main reason to buy this...

No technical problems at all. One thing I don't like is that the camera is a little slow, even when using "sport action" in dial mode you may get burred images of moving object. So if you plan to take sport action shots don't thing at this camera ;...
