It's a shame great ideas are eclipsed by new ones so rapidly. Great idea!

Summary: I bought the camera to get the smart media card, thinking I'd sell the camera on eBay and use the storage card for my zoom recorder. I looked the camera over, played with it, took a few pictures and: It feels good in my hands; Takes good quality pictures (for an early digital camera); Can take poloroid and digital shots at the same time. It's a fun little toy, so where'd my bargain media card go?
Summary: I bought this canera when the cost was over $500.00 I liked it so much I bought several more as gifts. I have five of these camera's if you plan to print a lot buy an adaptor to save battery life. Over all I give it a 10 out of 10.Buy one you'll be glad you did.
Summary: My opinion of this camera is really all thumbs up. It has some really great features, unique to this one model and it has a couple of down features, too. The cameral allows you to print a polaroid 600 instamatic photo, or leave it as a digital recording. I love the consistantly fine quality of clear pictures obtained digitally, even in low or dim light situations. I primarily use my camera for construction still photography, inside of dams and power plants.
Summary: Even though it is big and bulky, it takes great close up pictures. One thing I did find out is it takes great pictures in the dark with a flash. It is not only a digital camera but a instantmatic camera as well. So for those whom don't want to download a picture right then and there, they can print one instantly. Anyone starting out with a digital, I highly reccomend this camera.
Summary: This was my first digital camera purchase, two and a half years ago and I have hardly put it down since. Yes, it looks like a suitcase, and just try whipping one out now next to a guy with a digital camera the size of a microchip, but the heck with them! This camera is a modest little workhorse, and has been churning out crisp and beautiful photos for me since the moment I picked it up.
Summary: I bought this camera about month ago...and I use it alot. Its so versatile... I love Polaroid 500 pics anyway...so this was neat because it is a digital cam along with the OPTION of polaroid *quick* prints. Yes it IS larger size...BUT ...I still love it. On the polaroid part... you can take 4 to 9 pics (which you have taken on the camera) ...and put on ONE polaroid print... it's SOOOOOO cool. One thing I havent been able to do yet is download...
Summary: This is a very good camera and it is easy to use and takes great pictures. The problem I have with it is that it won't communicate with my PC. I have installed all the software that came with the camera as instructed but when I try to install the USB Driver it says that it can't be found. I am operating with Windows 98, 30 gigs hard-drive, 128 megs RAM at 800Mhz. Has any one else had similar problems?
Summary: I have used many digital cameras--mostly high end products. I have never been able to achieve the color clarity as well as the detail that this camera can produce--even in ambient lighting situations that are not so camera-friendly. I have uploaded pics to my pc as well as taken the smartcard to the camera shop to have them printed out. It was really easy and took only a minute for either function.
Summary: Hello, This Olympus C-211 is one of the best cameras I have ever bought. It's really a good and beautiful Camera. Why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5! Well, coz its big size but it's ok when u have 2 cameras in one. I just say Wow.
