Re: Anyone heard of or owned an Olympus C-211
In reply to Barry Nelson, Jun 1, 2010

I seemed to remember that camera. I had to google it to be sure. There was a review from Imaging Resource. They felt it was a good 2meg digital with a poloroid option. They are still listed on Amazon from $37. But, if the poloroid film is no longer available, it's just a collectible. I used to collect what older Oly"s I could find. I had a D500 (.8 meg, body only) that I picked up when Nobody Beats The Wiz went under. Paid about $23 after 75% off. That led me to pick up a D620L (1.3meg?) on Ebay for $60. They were both in near new condition. They were the first digitals with a TTL optical view finder for less than $20k. I did miss that with my first point&shoots. The D500 was almost unusable without the serial cable, but the 620 was fun. I traded them both for a D40 a few years back.
If you need a second on that "old camera forum", I'm in.
