A fav choice among adv amateur photogs entering digital photography a couple years back. I got mine for just under USD$250 recently. While dated (serial port! 32MB max cap!), I liked its styling (look at the masses of ugly 'futuristic' tourist-style stuff...'Cool'pix990??-great camera with the looks of a geektoy...) and surprising image quality (thanks to its excellent lens) Good flash shots. One impt point I never see mentioned is that the sealed non-extending lens-body is a crucial factor ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
I bought this camera around when it first came out. Cost me around $720.00 US. This will probably be the last Olympus digital I buy. I've had no problem with the quality of the pictures it produces and I've actually enjoyed taking pictures with it because it is an SLR camera (call me old-fashioned, I like looking through a lens). I'm probably going to sell this puppy after a while and here's why... Problems: Quite a few annoying problems. The first one is it sucks batteries! I even went ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
98-99 Euro DigiCam of the year. Excellent images even by today's standards (esp for a 1+ MP CCD). Limited min 1/4s shutter spd can be 'pushed' by using the pre-focus modes and +3 exp comp for low-light shots. Use photoshop etc to push gamma/contrast to improve underexposed low-light shot but at cost of image. Excellent high-contrast shots eg dawn-dusk using useful spot-meter. Very cheap nowadays for a used one (got mine early 2001 for ~US$200) One of the few digicams which doesn't look and ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
For an older generation digital camera, this model is really a performer. It is a bit bulky, but takes great auto shots. The SLR viewfinder makes framing shots perfect every time, and this is something I'll miss since it looks like my next digital won't be SLR. Indoor shots can be a bit blurry, but with the flash results are usually good. I've taken this camera all over and I think it leads the pack for its generation. Problems: I would have to say that this camera's inability whatsoever ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
Plastic housing looks and feels a bit cheap. Some images tend to have a blueish haze on them. Portraits are not its strong suit, whereas e.g. flower close-ups yield great detail and vivid colors. It's auto-off feature saves battery life, but can be annoying as it takes too long before next shot can be taken. Can hold lot of low-res jpg's (min. 50 x 640 x 512 on 4mb card), these are not well suited however for serious usage in web- let alone printed media. Unfortunately there is no lossless ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
