Olympus C-2020 Zoom review

This was my first (and still is my only) digital camera, so perhaps I was expecting too much after using film cameras for 30 years; some of its shortcomings are those of consumer digicams in general. I tried taking equestrian pictures, but due to slow shutter response I kept getting the wrong end of the horse; don't buy a digicam for action shots. I considered getting the telephoto and wide-angle lenses, but they're just too weird compared to an SLR. I think the only thing that will satisfy me is a Nikon D1!


The worst design feature is placement of the power button next to the shutter button; I can't tell you how many times I turned the camera off thinking I was shooting a picture. They should separate them or make them tactilely different. Also, I take all pix at super high quality, but often I'd discover that the quality had somehow switched down to high quality. Generally it seems simple to lose the intended settings, although it's less of a problem with practice.
