Surprising Camera for a Point and Shoot Film Camera
1 February 2009
Summary: I bought this camera because I can't justify the prices for decent digital cameras. A digital that will match this would almost certainly start at $300 and go up from there. These days, I can easily scan from negatives or prints into digital format of any resolution I want, not too mention getting CD with my prints. Consequently, I feel have MORE flexibility with this camera than I would get with a digital camera. This was a $200 or more camera new.
Summary: I bought this camera to take on a trip to Peru instead of a digital camera. This film camera is tough a nails, with film and batteries available. The pictures it has taken came out great and it is very simple to use.
Summary: I purchased the Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 35mm camera about a month ago due the the fact that I lost my previous film camera and wanted another film camera. I enjoy more of the features such as date imprinting on the photos which I did not have before. One disadvantage I discovered is that it only takes the lithium batteries. My previous Olympus camera had the option to use either one lithium battery or 2 AA batteries, which I prefered.
