Battery Charger

A D-BC7 battery charger is supplied, just slip the battery out of the camera and onto the charger to top it back up to capacity. A full charge from flat will take a maximum of 3 hours.

Lens

The 750Z and Olympus C-7000 Zoom are the only current seven megapixel digital cameras which provide an almost 200 mm equiv. telephoto, although the price you pay is a not-very-wide 38 mm equiv. 'wide angle'. The 750Z is also the second slowest extending camera of our group test, just under three seconds isn't fast.

The flash unit is mounted at the top right corner of the camera front, it has a specified range of 3.8 m at wide angle and 2.2 m at telephoto (Auto ISO).

Auto Focus Assist Lamp
