Olympus 7.1 megapixel digital camera

  • Summary: Takes excellent pictures when they do not turn out blurry. Have to hold the camera very still and make sure that the battery is fully charged. The shutter does not close smoothly enough.

Great camera, other than the focus issues noted below

David J. Elliott "NewWaveDave", Amazon

  • Summary: I concur with the other reviewer in that when the camera manages to focus correctly, the pictures look great. But be prepared to through out 30% of your pictures due to focus/blurring problems. I to have tried numerous camera settings and have yet to find the magic formula. The 7Mb image size is great and the 30 times zoom are very nice. Also, the camera powers up and is ready to snap pictures very quickly (much faster than any digital camera I have owned).

Otherwise Great Camera Marred By Poor Auto-Focus...

Institution Green, Amazon
22 February 2006
  • Summary: Having purchased an Olympus D-580 a few months back, and not having been thrilled with its auto-focusing ability for indoor photos, I decided to splurge and purchase the C-7000 after considering the Canon G6 and Sony DSCV3. The C-7000 has an AF Illuminator that the D-580 doesnt have; I figured this would solve the auto-focus issues I had experienced with my D-580 while taking indoor photos. Wrong.

great pictures when it works

seagypsygirl, Amazon

  • Summary: bought this camera to replace a DX series Kodak. My thoughts: - I was excited, at first, by the manual controls, but disappointed by the difficulty of using the pre-set modes when in a hurry (who wants manual all the time?). The option for pre-setting 4 "my mode" settings is great, though. - The color results are not impressive, I frequently find myself changing saturation and reshooting. - Battery life is not great and the battery is very expensive.

Visually Blurred!

D. Miller, Amazon
5 July 2005
  • Summary: This camera packs a lot of features into a small little camera. However, the focus issue is HUGE for me. I have little ones that I'm always photographing, and the auto focus issue doesn't cut it for us. Family photo taking? This camera isn't for you. Even using auto focus mode (battery draining indeed), and using a flash indoors, you will take several pictures before achieving a sharp picture. In the meantime, your subjects will be temporarily blinded by the "red light".

  • Excerpt: Слабая светосила объектива для такого размера матрицы 1/1,8”. Вследствие чего, фото получаются слегка блеклыми. Имеет место нестабильная фокусировка в разных режимах при достаточном освещении, что удивляет. Семь мегапикселей можно считать чисто маркетинговым шагом производителя, т.к. параметры объектива не позволяют их реализовать.
  • Pros: 5 кратный зум, сильная вспышка, подсветка автофокуса, низкий уровень шума, разнообразие настроек, компактность, стильный дизайн.
  • Cons: Несоответствие светосилы объектива размеру матрицы, нестабильная фокусировка даже при ярком свете, короткое время видео в режиме 640Х480, малая емкость флэш-карты 32 Mb в комплекте.

  • Excerpt: Отсутствует дистанционное управление (или хотя бы "тросик"), при длительной выдержке сотрясения от нажатия кнопки. При фотографировании при пониженной освещенности (не темно, а так себе-начинаются сумерки) требует большую выдержку чем другие, что сказывается на смазывании из-за дрожания (вспышка не всегда уместна,а штатив не всегда под рукой) . Слабые резиновые заглушки.

  • Summary: Hola, en primer lugar deciros que con la camara estoy encantado. Buscaba una camara de calidad (aunque como luego se verá tampoco es que tenga mucha idea) que tenga un buen zoom y que sea lo mas compacta posible. Mi unica desilusion ha sido con las fotos con poca luz (ya no digo de noche...). Me salen todas movidas, y con otras camaras mucho mas sencillas, les salen unas fotos bastante decentes.
