Olympus C-740 UZ review

I love this little camera! This was my first foray into digital and I didn't want to spend much money until I had at least a working knowledge of a digital camera. Three years later and I'm only now looking for a more advanced digital camera. Earlier this year I bought a C-750 as a second camera for my trip to London in case something went wrong with the C-740 - it didn't. My 8x10 home-prints are crisp and clear. Metal body, attached lens cap, couldn't be easier to use.


I'm looking for a faster camera because I'm shooting a very hyper 16 mo. old grandson and the shutter lag is too long if autofocus is turned on. Add the pop-up flash and he's long gone by the time the picture is taken.
