I bought the C-1Z camera for my teenage kids to use. I have an Olympus C-2040z (2.1 mp and equivalent of 1.8 aperture). Aside from years of SLR use, the 2040 is my point of comparison for the C-1Z. My wife and I were going to Central America (Belize) with at group and I wanted a camera I could carry in my pocket (In a ziplock to protect from moisture). The 2040 has a protruding lens with a lens cover that falls off with any little bump and, for that reason, must be carried in a (small) ...

As a user of the 860L, the C1Z had a lot to live up to. It's exceptionally compact and like the 860L, is reliable and takes surprisingly good pics for a 1.3 MP compact.

Still, I find it easy to use; the menu's better than the D-450; and I know I'll have it with me. Problems: Pictures ...

First, I'll preface by saying I compare images to that of Professional Kodak Photo-CD scans from 35mm film. Of course, you can't expect a $250 P&S digital to come close to that. I've been using this camera for about 3 months now. My first thought that it is a royal pain to learn how to use. You can't get by without thoroughly reading the manual and then keeping the cheat sheet in your pocket for awhile. If you're a film P&S user and you think this camera is going to be just like that, ...

Bought the Brio 150 in July. Used it on as trip & at work without problem. Similar controls to Olympus snapshot camera it replaced. Fast downloads to laptop. Great pictures for PowerPoint. Fast start, easy on batteries.
