Olympus C-740 UZ review

I've been using this camera for a few months now and it's been with me on many hikes, scrambles, climbs, mountain biking trips, etc. and has performed admirably.

The picture quality is very good and the zoom is amazing ! I've taken pictures of black bears from safe distances with great resolution... even without a tripod. And I've even ditched my binoculars since this camera more than makes up for it. (The digital zoom is very good as well.)


I found the lens to be a little flimsy/shaky but after what the camera has gone through so far, I can safely say that it's not an issue.

There are lots and lots of functions and the menu system is a little confusing at times but for now, I only stick to a few modes so that's not an issue for me.
