"...this camera is to use!! The Olympus Camedia C-720 Ultra Zoom is a high resolution, lightweight, fantasta-zoom camera. But what does all that mean? Well the Camedia cameras are Olympus’ range of compact digitals designed to function with many of the same capabilities of a digital SLR (SLRs are the big cameras that the proper people use!) but to substantially bring down the cost entailed with that (a difference of around 6 or 700 quid), ..."

BIG performance from a LITTLE camera

Advantagessize, weight, performance, picture quality

DisadvantagesIm still trying to think of one. Maybe the price?

"...in the end and an Olympus one at that. My reasoning and a description of the camera are to follow. Firstly let me tell you about my camera and the company that make it.. I own the Olympus C-700 Ultra Zoom Camera. It boasts many unique features that many digital cameras do not posess yet as well as some state of the art features found on all digital cameras. The difference with Olympus is that you are buying from a proven and trusted source ..." Read review

Olympus C700 Ultra zoom

AdvantagesExcellent optical zoom with really clear pictures.

DisadvantagesViewfinder is a bit fuzzy, not always that easy to see what you are taking.

"This is a small and very easy to use camera with a magnficent zoom feature. I was able to take pictures of insects on holiday this year which were still clear when enlarged up to 8x10. There aren't as many 'fun' features as on some other cameras but the quality is superb . The editing software is reasonable . It is easy to download pictures using the cable supplied. Although it is possible to take pictures in quite dark conditions they are rather ..." Read review

Top of its class.

AdvantagesMany controllable options, excellent picture quality

DisadvantagesBattery life could be longer

"...class I would recommend the Olympus Camedia C 700 above any other for the amateur or the more experienced photographer. While it is easy to use and just as good for one who knows nothing about cameras, it also provides many options that a more advanced photographer would find useful. One of my favorite features is the option of adjusting the f-stop, shutter speed and film speed as desired. One can set it on automatic, or have the option of changing ..." Read review

Olympus CAMEDIA C 700 Ultra Zoom, go get one!!

AdvantagesGreat zoom, pretty much point and shoot and great for close up pictures

DisadvantagesNone so far!

"Olympus CAMEDIA C 700 Ultra Zoom is a little out-dated but still well worth buying as it's fairly cheap on ebay, i bought my camera, 2x128mb cards, 1x32mb card and a carry case for £100.00 and it is one of the best purchases i have made in ages. I used it on my hols this year and took some fantastic photos without even reading the manual so even an idiot like me can be a budding David Bailey! My friend has a more expensive camera than mine with more ..." Read review
