1 megapixels | 1.8 screen | 36 – 110 mm (3.1×)

This camera is bought secondhand in 2001. A sturdy camera that works still to the day (2005). Image quality is as expected from a 1.3 megapixel image. The build of this camera is actually better than the C2500L. Easy and fast to use. Thanks to the buffer I can take upto 5 pictures in a row without a problem. This old camera is still being used now-and-then and really brings back memories... Problems: None so far... The focus in low light is not too great but is easily corrected by using the ...

I bought mine over two years ago, and it has withstood the test of time. Not only has this camera been durable (it has survived a 3-4 foot fall to concrete, and a couple of other drops) The image quality is still excellent. For day-to-day shooting it works great; though a user needs to know its limitations to achieve the best results. Low light can be a bit of a problem, it could also do a little better for indoor action shots. But overall it is a great day-to-day camera that an take great ...

It was an upgrade from my first digicam (0.8 meg Fuji) and what a pleasure to use; especially the SLR type viewfinder, giving good battery life. The images were really good, for a 1.3 meg model. Physically a bit on the big side but obviously not intended as point and shoot. Very difficult to fault this camera. Problems: As others have commented, some focusing difficulty at times but careful use overcame this, mostly.

My first digital camera which I've owned since 1998. 3 years later and 5000+ photos I must say that the best thing about it is the photo quality. The colors are true, and the resolution (1280x1024) is excellent. I can almost anticipate the quality of the shots before they even appear on the LCD. This camera delivers a consistent picture quality. Overall, this is an excellent beginner through amature camera. I think I will always keep this camera around for general occasions. Problems: E ...

The Olympus D-620L is an outstanding camera. I upgraded from a D-600L about a year ago. The 620 offers outstanding picture quality, is easy to use, and can accept an external flash.. A MUST for indoor photographers.. The internal flash is good for about 7' at best but as a fill flash it works great .. or for macro.. I use a Postit stickon note pad as a defuser and get GREAT results.. ONCE you try a true SLR digital you will never want to go back to one of those rangefinger types. Problems: ...

I agree with the other reviewers comments about the problems in low-light. However, for outdoors photography, you can get some great shots.

I like this camera... for me, SLR is one of the most important factors to buy his camera. I have it since 2/99 and I have take more than 600 pictures with it. I made prints with my Epson Photo EX, and have really good results (Even in 11X8). Problems: It's a good camera, my only complain is that in low light, the camera is tricky to use (Autofocus).
