Olympus Camedia C-100: Oly Oly Oly, oi oi oi!

davidbuttery, Dooyoo
25 August 2011
  • Summary: ** Introduction ** Olympus has a long and respected tradition of photographic manufacture, so it was hardly surprising that they made quite an early and enthusiastic entrance into the digital marketplace. However, some of their compact models were surprisingly lacklustre, and there are few Olympuses (Olympi?) that have really hit the heights.
  • Pros: Decent photo quality for a 1.3 mp model, quite easy to use, useful sliding cover
  • Cons: The C-2 does everything this camera does, a bit better, for the same price

  • Excerpt: "...with a lot of older Olympus digicams, there's a nice sliding cover which completely covers the small lens, and the camera looks quite satisfyingly packaged with it closed. Once open, though, the C-100 does present a noticeably old-fashioned face to the world, and this is certainly not one of those older models which nobody will notice the age of! On the back there's a 1.5-inch LCD, which looks smaller than it is because of the chunky body. One odd ...
  • Pros: Decent photo quality for a 1 . 3 mp model, quite easy to use, useful sliding cover
  • Cons: The C - 2 does everything this camera does, a bit better, for the same price

  • Excerpt: "I CANT BELIEVE HOW LONG THIS CAMERA HAS LASTED I have had this camera for over 5 years and it still takes amazing photos. When i bought it it was £150 but it is so much cheaper now and well worth buying. I have taken it everywhere with me, numerously dropped it and even got it covered in sand at a beach and it has still survived. My friends always complain that their cameras have way more mega pixels than mine but mine takes much better ...
  • Pros: good photos, lasted over 5 years

  • Excerpt: "...my surprise to receive the Olympus C100 as a present! I must confess I was looking at spending 300GBP or so on a camera with a 2-3million pixel capability, but was impressed with the quality of the C100 which is a 1.3 million pixel camera. I have found that the picture quality is excellent and I really cannot see that there is any need to spend an extra few hundred pounds for the extra pixels. I have a friend who works for a newspaper advertising ...
  • Pros: Cheap; Easy to use; instant view of pictures
  • Cons: not the smallest camera; video mode weak
