Olympus C-4000 Zoom review

I used this camera for 3 years before I upgraded to the Fuji s9000. This is a good P&S camera and if you find it cheap enough is a good alternative to the new under $200 4mp P&S cameras available. This camera has excellent macro capabilities. My work camera is a new Canon Powershot A520 and quite frankly, the Olympus is superior in every way despite being over 3 years old. The smart media card it uses is obsolete however.

Problems:

Slow start up times
Shot to shot times are slow
Some shutter lag
