Olympus D-40 Zoom (C-40 Zoom) review

Ideal camera for beginners, having in the same time great features for more experienced users. The total combination is very valuable, very good the remote, but don't expect the greatest image quality you can imagine. You need time to find out all the "hidden" function's combinations that can improve your photos. Excellent noise reduction, very good focus in low light conditions. Great green & blue performance specially in landscapes, woods etc. (sometimes looks like polarized filtered photo).

Problems:

Chromatic aberrations "red goes to magenda" (fixed by using flash in daylight for closed themes),purple fringing, slow opening time, battery consume when off, lenses with no great potentiality.
