Olympus D-490 Zoom (C990Z) review

I've took about 10,000 photos with this cam.

My opinion: pretty good point-n-shot camera if you are not looking 4 masterpieces and do not want to spend lots of money on camera.


The first and MOST serious disadvantage - CONTRAST!!! Very often the sky is white instead of being blue?? And ground is too dark simultaneously. But it seems that the camera is able to get good color information from the matrix.
The second disadvantage - it's unable to turn movie mode on quickly: you have to walk through the menu and submenu...
3rd: sometimes the camera is "ringing" when flashcard is removed and sometimes it does not.
4th: fastening hole is too soft - it's not allow to fix the camera stably.
5th: In the _complete_ darkness the aufocus within the flash works wrong: it focuses at about 1m despite real distance...
