5.0 out of 5 stars Digital comes of age..., 24 Aug. 2003
Being a keen amateur photographer, and owning a canon eos SLR, I took the plunge last year and purchased an olympus c-220 zoom.
This was my first digital camera, and provided some excellent shots, however, it was limited by being a "compact" with a small lens and limited zoom capability. The true value of digital cameras is dispensing with the cost of film (etc) - we all know where this will go!
Essentially, then, I was looking to upgrade, but, being used to an SLR, and not having the money for a digital SLR, decided to opt for the C750. The camera is as close as you will get to a digital SLR, in my opinion.
GOOD POINTS:
Fantastic zoom
MUCH faster picture taking (time shift)
autofocus is VERY good
anyone who has used an olympus digicam will easily navigate most of the menus - same system
the light sensitivity is excellent: (I am still testing under different conditions)
DRAWBACKS
A maximum quality image fills the card: ie only room for one image at that size: writing time is about 10 secs
(Therefore as said before, a large capacity card is needed to get the most from this camera)
Finally, the ergonomics of the camera mean, although it fits in a jacket pocket, it may be an idea to get a secure carry case - it's too risky in terms of lens damage.
Overall, for the price, the camera is fantastic, and I would recommend it to anyone. Unless you are considering basement price digital, I would say spend a little more and get this -you won't regret it.
