Olympus D-600L review
98-99 Euro DigiCam of the year. Excellent images even by today's standards (esp for a 1+ MP CCD).
Limited min 1/4s shutter spd can be 'pushed' by using the pre-focus modes and +3 exp comp for low-light shots. Use photoshop etc to push gamma/contrast to improve underexposed low-light shot but at cost of image.
Excellent high-contrast shots eg dawn-dusk using useful spot-meter.
Very cheap nowadays for a used one (got mine early 2001 for ~US$200)
One of the few digicams which doesn't look and handle like a 'touristy compact' ie both hands holding for improved stability.
as well-documented eg batt-consumption, limited by 'auto' functions design, low-light perf, SMedia (max 32MB w/firmware upgrade), serial transfer, no hotshoe...
