Olympus C-7000 / C-70 Zoom Review

 

The C-7000 Zoom (known as the C-70 Zoom in Europe / SE Asia) is a new design direction for Olympus, looking back through their previous range the only similar camera could perhaps be the C-60 Zoom, although that only had a 3x optical zoom lens and had...

Good resolution Low noise, low noise reduction Above average automatic white balance Very-fast startup, let down by off to first shot time Good build quality, compact size Five times optical zoom, good telephoto reach Good range of image parameter...

Some purple fringing Somewhat disappointing battery life USB 1.1 transfer (slow) Very slow playback browsing Card formatting takes a long time Tendency for AF to hunt at telephoto / low light

The C-7000 is so unlike C-xxxx cameras of old it's almost worth Olympus using a new notation to distinguish it. It's considerably smaller and lighter, much thinner and yet no lighter on features. Despite its compact proportions it's probably the most...

Olympus Ultra Zoom review:

 

Olympus Camedia C-765 Ultra Zoom Though priced $100 less, the 4-megapixel Olympus Camedia C-765 Ultra Zoom is almost identical to its sibling, the C-770 Ultra Zoom, but it has a plastic body instead of a combination metal and plastic one, and it lacks...

Full manual controls; versatile 10X optical zoom; solid battery life; excellent macro capabilities; good image quality.

No raw format; slow autofocus under low-contrast lighting; no hotshoe; mediocre video-clip features.

Avid photographers on a budget get manual controls, a 10X optical zoom, and impressive macro capabilities for $100 less than what this camera's C-770 Ultra Zoom stablemate costs.

Slow, unresponsive zoom and shutter lag make action shots challenging ; Bottom Line ; The 4MP C-750 produces sharp, well-exposed images with its 10X zoom lens. It's a good choice as an all-around camera for enthusiasts moving up from the entry level

The 4MP C-750 produces sharp, well-exposed images with its 10X zoom lens. It's a good choice as an all-around camera for enthusiasts moving up from the entry level.

Olympus Camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom review

 

Olympus Camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom

Wide zoom range; solid image quality; reasonably broad set of shooting features.

Occasionally sluggish zoom response; no sound capture; nonrechargeable batteries yield the fastest performance.

A 10X zoom lens adds some kick to an otherwise average camera.

Olympus C-211 Zoom

 

Taking the best of the old and the new, the Olympus C-211 Zoom combines Olympus digital-camera technology with Polaroid's half a century of experience with instant photography. The result is a large but well-balanced device that works, shoots, and...

Olympus Camedia C-730 Ultra Zoom review:

 

Biggest optical zoom available on a 3-megapixel camera; tons of features; takes both old SmartMedia cards and new xD-Picture cards.

Unstabilized lens is susceptible to camera shake; many features buried in LCD menus.

A solidly designed, relatively compact camera whose claim to fame is a 10X zoom lens.

Olympus Camedia D-550 Zoom review

 

Olympus Camedia D-550 Zoom

Long battery life; Virtual Mode Dial for quick access; sharpness and contrast adjustments; easy to use.

Noisy zoom; no manual shutter or aperture settings.

The compact D-550 Zoom merits serious consideration from novices and second-time digicam buyers.

Olympus Camedia C-4000 Zoom review

 

Olympus Camedia C-4000 Zoom

Loads of features; easy enough for point-and-shoot use; customizable My Modes and shortcuts; bright LCD; good range of accessories available.

Some barrel distortion in images; lacks an autofocus illuminator; no sound capture; SmartMedia is on its way out.

This is a versatile and feature-laden 4-megapixel camera that should please serious shutterbugs and vacation shooters.
