When we decided that the Olympus D-395 that we were using just wasn't up to all the jobs we wanted - getting up close without getting too close - and our son, who is coming up 11, said that he would like a digital camera, the obvious answer was for us to get a higher spec model for ourselves, ...

Zooming good photos Review with images

AdvantagesReasonable price, good quality

DisadvantagesxD memory cards aren't always readable

"When we decided that the Olympus D-395 that we were using just wasn't up to all the jobs we wanted - getting up close without getting too close - and our son, who is coming up 11, said that he would like a digital camera, the obvious answer was for us to get a higher spec model for ourselves, and pass the D-395 on to him. We ended up going to Apollo 2000 near Blackpool North station for a vacuum cleaner and noticed they had an Olympus C-725 Ultra ..." Read review

User friendly Olympus Camedia C 725 Ultra Zoom

AdvantagesEasy to use & very light

DisadvantagesPoor auto focus & Very heavy battery consumption

"I found the Olympus Camedia C 725 a very easy camera to use, also I liked the small compact memory cards ( M-XD256P XD CARD) which are easily installed into the camera just by pushing into the memory card slot. I did notice that the auto focus mode was very poor and that you had to take 3 or 4 shots of a subject to get a clear crisp image, although having a large memory card did compensate for this problem. I also found that the camera was unbelievably ..." Read review

Olympus Camedia C-725 - User Comments

AdvantagesNice zoom lens, good picture quality, nice controls, looks pretty good

DisadvantagesEats batteries! Not too suitable for action photography.

"Back in early 2005 I was looking for a good digital camera with as much 'real' optical zoom as possible (rather than just digital zoom). I didn't have the funds for a DSLR so I went down the compact digital route. After a lot of web searches and price comparisons I chose the C725. Overall, I like the camera and it has served me fairly well over the past 3 years. Plus points: It has a good feel in the hand and the weight isn't excessive. I think ..." Read review

The best digital camera I have used

Advantagesgood optical zoom, easy controls

Disadvantagesno sound on movie

"I have used many digital cameras and own 5. This so far is the best one that I have used. I have used this camera for the last 6 months and have had no problems with it. It is a very good camera that is easy to use and gives you full control of the camera in the manual mode. The only draw back is no sound on the movie mode. The optical zoom is very good and you can use the digital zoom for better shots. If you use the digital zoom then it needs to ..." Read review

Olympus C75 Ultrazoom

AdvantagesImpressive looking (not that i suppose that matters!) Great interface and good good quality photos for a camera of this price.

DisadvantagesHard to get to grips with, the battery also runs out fairly quickly - although this isnt so much of a problem if you use rechargable batteries

"As soon as i got this camera home i started taking photos and quickly realised how hard it was going to be to understand the camera, after a few weeks i realised the camera was not turning itself off but it was going into standby mode (Daft i know - but thats what you get for not reading the intructions carefully) This camera is definatly recommended for anyone wanting a middle-ranged camera and anyone just starting to move into digital photography ..."
