“Is your wife a goer”

published 14/01/2003

ProFlexible and light

ConsNone

Is your wife a goer? Eh? Much as I’d like to give you this classic Monty Python scene in its entirety I’m not going to. For that you’ll need to visit http://www.intriguing.com/mp/scripts/livebowl.txt and scroll about halfway down. What I can give you though is this truly...

Prosize, weight, performance, picture quality

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

I like to think of myself as a keen amateur photographer. Im not the sort to spend thousands of pounds on lenses, SLR's or filters but I do enjoy capturing a beautiful photograph with an ideal camera to suit my needs and my pocket. After studying phontography during my 'A' Levels 7 years ago, I...

ConsBattery life could be longer

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...

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.

ConsNone 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...

Pronone

Conspoor quality poor repair customer service

I had a big problem with an Olympus C70 Zoom - the camera lost 400+ of my holiday photos - it did not record onto the card even though the camera kept counting like it did. The problem was Olympus gave no service in relation to any explanation, or apology, or recomepnse, or refund etc - simply no...
