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.
I hope you never have the unfortunate experience of using this!

Excerpt: I love taking pictures, but this camera does not make it fun! When focused, this camera takes gorgeous, clear pictures. However, it is extremely easy to take an unfocused shot. When the flash is on with this camera, every picture comes out clear. But, I hate using the flash, as I often find myself in a situation where I'm using macro or where low lighting is necessary. These pictures come out blurry about 80% of the time, because you have to keep your hand straight.
Excerpt: This camera takes excellent pictures, but if your subject is moving, your picture will be fuzzy. I cannot count the pictures that turned out fuzzy once I got home and loaded them on the computer. Check out other camera for a faster shutterspeed. It really is very important. This camera is too slow once you press the shutter button.
Excerpt: We received this camera as a gift and we know it is supposed to be a really good, high quality camera. It has tons of different options and settings on it and a powerful zoom. It captures tons of details in the pictures it takes. The problem, however, with this camera, at least for us, is that if there is even the slightest movement when you are taking the picture the whole thing comes out blurry. I do much better with a cheaper, less complicated camera, personally.
Excerpt: This digital camera is very easy to use and makes every occasion a memorable one. I use this camera for pleasure and work. Its multiple settings makes it possible to take clear and distinct pictures in the direct sun, part shade, dim lighting and very limited lighting. It will automatucally focus for still shots and action shots. You can avoid leaving anyone out of a large group photo by choosing the scene format or get closeups with a simple turn of the dial.
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.
Excerpt: After using a Pentax roll-film camera for many years, I was hesitant about using a digital camera . I could not fully understand the concept of taking photographs with first loading a film into the back. However, like many other people, I recognised that digital photography was the future. After considering a few digital cameras, I decided on the Olympus C-725 - mainly because the company had always had a good reputation with 35mm cameras.
Excerpt: "Back in early 2005 I was looking for a good digital camera with as much 'real' optical zoom as possible (rather than just digital zoom). I didn't have the funds for a DSLR so I went down the compact digital route. After a lot of web searches and price comparisons I chose the C725. Overall, I like the camera and it has served me fairly well over the past 3 years. Plus points: It has a good feel in the hand and the weight isn't excessive. I think ...
Pros: Nice zoom lens, good picture quality, nice controls, looks pretty good
Cons: Eats batteries ! Not too suitable for action photography .
A Good Camera for both Beginners and Creative Photographers

Excerpt: Like many other people about to switch from a film camera to digital I was extremely nervous. But, knowing that digital was the future, it was time I found out what it was all about. I finally decided to purchase an Olympus Camedia C725 Ultra Zoom 3 Megapixel digital camera, based mainly on the reputation of the Olympus brand name. Getting the camera home I wondered what I had let myself in for!
