This was my begginer's digital camera. I used it for about 2 years! It got me over 15000 pictures! The quality of the pictures is not as good anymore, with 1.2 megapixel. However, for what I got back then it was certainly worth it. In addition, the design is amazingly strong! I gave it a 4 star for it's value, at least in my book. Now I bought a C4000 Zoom Olympus and can tell you it's worth upgrading to higher megapixels. Problems: None to be conern about folks. I dropped the camera quite a ...

I've had this camera for 2 years now, bought it right before the birth of my baby girl. This is my first digital camera, but I have been an avid photographer for years, owning 6 other 35mm cameras when I bought this (not 6 over the years, but owned 6 others at the time). Since I got my 450Z, I've not touch any of my other cameras. I've taken pictures of my daughter every day as she grows up. First year I took over 9,000 pictures (first time dad!) and 2nd year over 7,000. The camera just keep ...

I just traded up to an Oly C-2100, I hated selling my compact D-450, but as a webmaster of a tourism web site I wanted the 10 power zoom of the C-2100. I averaged over a 100 pics a week, yes thats over 10, 000 images in the 2 years I've owned it. Rarely did I have the problems of any image quality, indoors or out. Lighting is everything, you need to know what to do with it. If you had poor quality images all the time (another opinion) it should have gone back to the factory. Battery life is ...

I am a pro photographer/cameraman and picked this Olympus c920z as a first digital camera, as I always liked Olympus products. It impressed me with the results though it is under 1.5 MP. Very easy and friendly and not eating batteries. For quality work I have used its highest setting and got satisfactory results. Great as a second camera! Problems: Sooooo Sloooooow serial transfers. The manual is really a shame and not logically done.

Camera is rugged since I carry it in my Harley saddlebags. Hasn't given me any trouble but I wish the software allowed faster downloads. Soooo Sloooow! Problems: Havne't had any problems except for the Radio Rechargables don't last too long. Carry extra battery packs just in case the batteries fail

An excellent value. It would be easier to use if it came with a manual written by a camera user rather than by the Marquis de Sade! I love digital photo technology to the point that I'm selling all of my Canon F1 stuff; I haven't used it since buying the D450 over a year ago. Stop me, I'm getting an itch to upgrade to a Minolta Dimage 7.

I have found it very user friendly and it has enhanced my web site development side of things. Problems: A big one. My son got a hold of it one day and pulled the batteries out whilst it was going. At the moment it has somehow put it self on standby or dead mode. It isnt going and I am seeking further assistance to get it going.

Olympus D-450Z is excellent for amateur photographers. Not only amateurs of course, but if you're very proffessional and you want outstanding picture quality, you should choose at least 2.1 megapixel cameras. Anyway, Olympus D-450 is very easy-to-use and the picture quality is very good. I recommend you to buy a USB reader and a 32mb SmartMedia card. If you're looking for a high quality and not expensive camera, this is the product you want. Problems: No problems encountered but I can say ...

I bought the Olympus 450 as a learning tool for digital photography, which is poised to take over within 3 years. I wanted something I could put in my pocket, take anywhere, and experiment with. I'm impressed by the quality and sharpness of the lens, the accurate exposure control, and its ability to capture images in light conditions too low for film. Overall, an excellent camera. Problems: Occasional problems on hard-wire connection to my desktop Macintosh. But the smartcard/pc reader in ...
