Summary: Smooth operation...there is hardly a need to read the accompanying manual. The feature list is extensive...the only drawback is the time limitation on the amont of video you can shoot at one time, but this is a limitation of the available media, not the camera. A great "starter" camera......
Summary: I chose to purchase a slightly older P&S camera because the new cameras have lost the megapixel race; manufacturers have packed so many pixels on smaller and smaller sensors, leading to significant image quality issues from noise. I also prefer a camera with a viewfinder, as do many people who wear glasses.
Summary: Great camera that is much more than a simple point and shoot. Takes high quality outdoor pictures, excellent micro and macro mode, wide range of manual adjustments and zoom. Great for inside too but needs correction of the white balance settings when using flash under fluorescent lights. Navigating the controls and menu is fairy easy. A little to big to just carry in the pocket but once again this camera is a step toward SLR class.
Summary: Previously had same camera, but after an estimated sixty thousand pics, it quit working. The original cost about $600. This former display model was delivered to my door for $100. Sure, it is a little beat up, but still takes a good picture. I checked out features and picture quality of newer model cameras of similar size, but determined they were no better than the C7000. In fact, many had fewer features and pictures were no better.
Summary: The C-7000 is a tiny, fully-featured camera that offers RAW and TIFF file types in addition to .jpegs. It's truly a capable pocket camera that's great for the enthusiast. Seven megapixels is plenty of resolution. I got mine for $100. It's original MSRP was $700.
Olympus Camedia Digital 7000, 7.1 Megapixel Camera
9 November 2008
Summary: I had purchased a new Olympus 7000 in 2006. This camera was stolen at our county fair. This was the best camera I have ever owned. It is easy to understand and operate. The Pictures are extremely clear and easily edited. This is just a fantastic camera. After my camera was taken, I just wanted that quality back so I purchased another from e-bay. There is nothing about it that I don't like.
Summary: I already have this camera and was showing it to the girls at work. One of them asked if I could get her one just like it....So, I started watching them on EBay. After one week, I got one for her. It was just like brand new and takes awesome pictures. The zoom is fantastic and it takes great action shots. You must read the manual or go online to Olympus and read how to use it...I was NOT using it to it's potential.
Summary: In all I've bought four C-7000s. The 1st was a gift to my daughter-in-law. Its images were so excellent that I kept comparing them with my Nikon Coolpix and was amazed at the Olympus's superiority. So when I dropped and broke the Nikon, I picked up a 2nd C-7000 on eBay. WOW! The images were SHARP, colors saturated and true--more so than any other camera I've ever owned (many), and noise was exceptionally low.
