something solid to snap up

AdvantagesGenerally high quality pictures, easy to use without reading manual

Disadvantagessize of manual, larger than compacts

"...that I have used the Olympus Camedia C720 for four months, I have grown used to its idiosyncrasies and quite like the beast, so to I think do most of my work team. Quite deservedly wearing the highly regarded Olympus brand mark this is a sturdy good quality camera that I would place at the upper end of the home market and mid range of the business market.

My first camera, and will be my best ever.

AdvantagesTop quality photos, easy to use and optical zoom

DisadvantagesWhen switched on the lens sticks out a lot, easy to break off.

"...DIGITAL CAMERA C-700 Ultra Zoom. OLYMPUS OPTICAL ZOOM 10X To switch the camera on there is a small wheel where you choose the setting you want and turn it to the picture representing it. The setting of photos are: - Viewing photos (shown using a small green arrow) - Auto taking photos (the word AUTO) - Landscape photos (picture of a house) - Action photo (a small running man) - Portraight photo (a lady's head) - The letter P, i'm not sure ..."

Doesn't know what it wants to be

AdvantagesManual aperture/shutter adjustment

DisadvantagesBulky

"Like the title says, it's hard to put this camera into a niche. The lens makes it too bulky to be a general take everywhere point and click travel camera, but the aperature and width are too small to make it a professional SLR replacement. I bought the camera for the small and short focal length as I take lots of technical close-up work. It's great for that as portability and setting up time is not an issue. Where it falls down is on the move. ..." Read review

Camedia C720 Ultra zoom

Advantagesnice and easy to use and hold

DisadvantagesLens sticks out a bit too far

"Like the SLR cameras the olympus digital camera range seems to be well built - have lots of features and is easy to use. Although larger than the compacts its' size makes it easy to hold and use. Picture quality is very good and the large optical zoom (8*) and digital zoom(3*) makes for easy close ups. Battery life seems to be good as well. I've had it for a couple of months and the original batteries are still going - used most weekends on and ..." Read review
