Olympus D-395 (C-160) review

This little gem is great for grab shots and a camera to always have with you. I like the fixed lens. No lens zooming noise and waiting. make you move around more and be creative. Lots of features for the money. Anybody want a nice back-up camera or candid shooter should try this. If you want a camera to do everything and more you better look for £350 + models. This cost me £120. Very good value for F2.8 33mm lens (35mm equiv).apature.

Problems:

Battery only lasted for about 30 shots, but it was only regular AA and I used flash and lcd screen on most shots.
If you use the CR battery pack and don't use the lcd screen then you should be ok for much more. Also i used the camera with batteries to transfer to my PC.
I am going to buy a mains adapter next to save on batteries.
