Olympus D-395 (C-160) review
I always liked Olympus clamshell design. When it was offered at SGD$250 (USD152), I feebly resisted by asking for a photoprint. The 4R picture turns out pleasing enough. Its now my EDC (Every day carry) camera. At the price, I really don't care if I drop or lose it.
Better lens protection with clamshell design
Uses 2 AA batteries (best with trickle charged NIMH batteries)
Built in Panorama mode (I am now a pano freak)
Spot metering (point at any gray point, reframe, shoot)
Viewfinder (fit your eyesocket for steady shots)
Above flash output
ISO seems to stick at 80
Slow flash recharge
Crappy movie mode
Poor Camedia software interface
XP hides album files! Set display all files in directory.
Postscript: What I can't stand about is its narrow dynamic range. Good for photoprints but I find myself throwing away pictures with zero shadow detail and overblown hightlights.
