Good value, good photos. Inexpensive

Summary: This camera would be most adequate for any casual shutter-bug. IF it had a storage disk, sold separately, it would be a fantastic bargin. Cannon has always been one of the highest quality products, with some of the finest lens. 3MP is a bit short of current standards, but more than enough for decent pics. The seller, in this case, is a very trusted source, based on prior purchases. At the price I paid, it is a bargain to add to my camera collection.
Works great and had alot of extras not listed. Awesome!

Summary: I decided to buy this camera because of the high standards of Olympus. The camera works great and has alot of features. It has an awesome zoom and 3.0 megapixel. I use it to take pictures of my 3 girls and then to load then on my computer. The camera came with a USB cable,memory card,all books and instructions manuals,original box,cord for video playback w/ t.v.,and carrying strap.
Summary: Picked up the C-725 from Office Max and did some test picture taking indoors. I operated the camera in AUTO mode as this was to be a gift for my daughter who wanted a point and shoot camera. I picked Olympus as I have had 2 earlier models of Olympus cameras and they always took excellent pictures. Almost all of the 20 pictures I took were terrible. Most of the pictures were out of focus and also, many were over-saturated with the light from the flash.
Summary: This camera has worked better than I ever expected. Originally, I purchased it (2 and a half years ago) because my wife and I were going to Hawaii and I wanted something that was not too expensive so that it would not break the bank if, by chance, it got wet, lost, or stolen. The C-725 fit the bill. To my surprise, the pictures it took, although only 3 megapixels, looked great!
Summary: I bought this camera at a local department store because of the 8x zoom. Two of the last three digital cameras I have had were Olympus and I loved the photo quality I got from them. This Olympus does really good still life pictures in good light. I was not too impressed with the people pictures it took. However if you use the flash on the camera the pictures turn out extremely over exposed, or bleached out.
Summary: Original review: March 2006: I bought this camera in the fall of 2004 and still use it for all my pictures. I'll list the pros and cons of it. PROS: nice resolution, good details, good color (got some really nice pictures and cropped close ups). pretty good in low light situations. flash works fine, most pics came out OK. AA batteries are a big plus - use rechargable ones. pre-focusing is helpful by gently pressing on shutter Camedia software is easy to use.
Summary: For the price, this camera gives an incredible zoom and an array of options far beyond the simple point-and-shoot. In fact, that's what had damaged its reputation a little -- it's competitively-priced with actual point-and-shoot cameras, and the average camera user suddenly has a camera they don't know how to use. That's not to say the full-auto mode can't give good pictures, but using this camera to its full potential requires a little setup.
Summary: This camera is of good quality, and user friendly with a little instruction as to which button does what. However, the size is really inconvenient. Especially to a woman who needs to carry it around in her purse. While there are special cases to carry it in, for a person who can't lug a bunch of camera equipment all day...I can tell you that I can't take it many places. Forget formal functions..
