Conssize of manual, larger than compacts

At work, I produce reports that include photo images, these reports are increasingly being distributed in e-format therefore I needed to progress to digital photography. But with little time or expertise, I contacted my IT department and they researched (I think!) sourced and purchased. The final...

This is my first digital camera. I had used my dad's before so i had a vague idea on how to use it, so i haven't read the manual yet. I have also lost the manual but i can remember it being about half A5 paper size, it was quite thick and the instructions were in about 5 different languages. The...

ProManual aperture/shutter adjustment

ConsBulky

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...

This is my first digital camera. This camera looks and feels a bit like a 35mm SLR. There are plenty of features and the general picture quality is better than expected. The standard imaging software is fairly comprehensive and easy to use, even for a first timer. Auto focusing is a little slow...

“Camedia C720 Ultra zoom”

published 12/08/2004

Pronice and easy to use and hold

ConsLens 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...

ProCompact, Medium Priced, Easy to Use

ConsPossible blurring - which can be overcome

I was looking for a good zoom digital so therefore researched the cameras thoroughly on the internet. I came across this one and found many mixed reviews. It was liked and disliked and the main problem for those that did not like it was that they were suffering from blurred photographs. I looked...

“Olympus C-720 Ulta Zoom”

published 21/10/2006

ProExcellent Resolution

ConsLow Battery Life

Now one of the best cameras to buy on the used market. Excellent resolution allowing you to make poster size prints with no appreciable loss of quality. Memory cards are easily and cheaply available and greatly enhance the standard 16Mb SM card bundled with camera. Battery life is pretty short...
