I have an Olympus C-860L, the camera build is quite good except for the obviously different grey and rather flimsy cover for the power and data outlets. The handbook also tells you not to use the Olympus 3v power supply but does not appear to tell you what you CAN use. Problems: White spots on the image - Olympus tell me this is a characteristic of the lens and dust particles in the flash? This does not help when I cannot take flash photos for white spots ruining the images

I like the camera because it is my first digi cam. No reason to complain about the image quality. Of course not in poor light conditions and while zoomed out. But it's normal. Still for me a good value for such money (<500$). I hesitated a long time weather to buy a Canon EOS 300 or c990z and I finally decided to take this. I have not regretted my decision. To be honest most of advantages for me come up not due to the type of the camera ut due to the digi concept itself. Never the less - a ...

Great camera, I have had camera for a year. I use only at hi resolution with a 64meg card. I print with a HP1000. This is my first digital camera and up to 8X10 photos great. Must buy Nimh rechargeable batteries and at least a 64 meg card. Takes resonable low light photos such as sunsets and Christmas lights and fire works. Works well at 8" close-up. Problems: No problems but think battery slide and hinge to open could be broken easily.

Have owned the camera for 15 months. Construction of the body isn't bad but seems like it could have been a little better. Battery life is very good unlike some other digital cameras. On a few occasions I would have liked to have something bigger than a 2.1 MP but for 90% of the time this camera was more than enough camera. Very Pleased! Problems: Zoom lense mechanism malfunctioned once or twice. Repair was not needed, a simple close of the lens cover then re-opening it seemed to correct ...

I gave away the C-2500L, bought since the C-750UZ and the Stylus 800, but Sandra still uses the D-490Z now, in February 2007. It was sold here in NZ as the C-990ZOOM. It shows more image detail, less noise and better shadow detail than the C-2500L did, and it works with alkaline batteries for an apreciable time. Closeups that I have taken via LCD screen are better framed than those taken with the C-2500L. It is reasonably 4-year old child proof. Sandra likes its simplicity, and uses it for ...

I've been using the whole Olympus D series from the 400 to the D-490z, especially with the underwater housing (that a friend brought over from Japan). I really like it for the size, price and picture quality. Problems: One locked up on me. Took it back to Cosco and they replaced it.

Love this camera. I bought it in March of this year to get away from film and go fully digital, and it has nearly met all my expectations. (I've since bought another, pro-sumer, digital to meet ALL my expectations). The shortcomings are mentioned below. I've taken over a thousand pictures, and the quality of pics is outstanding. The highest JPG mode (SHQ) is fully adequate for picture-quality 8x10 prints on my HP 970Cse ink jet printer. Framed and on my desk and walls, they look ...
