Olympus C-720 UZ review

This was my first "proper" digital camera purchased a couple of years ago and despite having recently had more modern & expensive cameras (FZ20 & FZ30) I still carry this one round with me all the time because it is very easy to use, its tough and reliable (its been all around the world with me and taken a quite a bit of abuse!), it uses AA bateries which are readily available and always gives suprisingly good results under most conditions (fantastic sunsets for some reason), if you can find a good one for around £100-£150 I would certaily recomend it as a everyday camera.


The camera occasionally "freezes" where nothing will work but I just switch it of for a couple of seconds and it starts up and is ready to go again, the LCD & veiwfinder are quite poor compared to more modern kit but are perfectly useable.
