  • Excerpt: The Olympus C-765 and C-770 Ultra Zooms are updated versions of 2003's popular C-740 and C-750 cameras. For 2004, they've received a sleeker body, the TruePic TURBO engine (for better performance and image quality), MPEG4 support (C-770 only), and PictBridge.
  • Pros: Excellent photo quality, Compact metal bodies (considering the size of the lens), Many manual controls, My Mode feature lets you store favorite settings to spot on mode dial, Conversion lenses supported, Remote control included, [C-770 only], Hot shoe for external flash, [C-770 only], Supports external mic, [C-770 only], Histogram in record and playback mode, VGA movie mode (higher frame rate, but lower quality on C-770), Good macro mode, Customizable menu and button
  • Cons: Poor low light focusing, no AF-assist lamp, LCD/EVF too dark to be useable in low light, Full shutter speed range only available in "M" mode, Full manual only on CD, Image stabilization would be nice

  • Excerpt: "Looking for a change? Here's your chance to shoot like a celebrity, sports or wildlife photographer. With the extremely compact C-765 Ultra Zoom in your hand you're able to move into new subject areas and aesthetics. For example, its 10x zoom power lets you capture a frame-filling shot of your favourite player on the pitch. This digital camera not only gives you the optical power to explore new territory and subjects.
  • Pros: 10x Optical Zoom Lens, Excellent image quality - great colour and detail in pictures, Great screen - clear, smooth, good size, Good movie mode (unfortunately the zoom can not be used when recording sound), Low noise levels, Easy to use, Very Good macro / super macro mode, World's smallest digital camera with 10x Optical zoom lens
  • Cons: No Case, Purple Fringing, No Image stabilisation, No built in speaker for movie playback for that you will need the more expensive Olympus C-770., No AF-Assist Lamp

Progettata per eventi sportivi, di viaggio, naturalistici e per tutte quelle situazioni in cui il dettaglio è ciò che veramente conta, la CAMEDIA C-765 Ultra Zoom è la più piccola fotocamera digitale con zoom ottico 10x del mondo.

  • Excerpt: Nella sottile frontiera che separa le reflex dalle fotocamere compatte sta un'ampia gamma di fotocamere che non sono né una cosa né l'altra. Evidentemente, la Camedia C-765 Ultra Zoom non è una reflex, anche se il riflettore che ha per obiettivo ci impedisce di parlare convenientemente e piacevolmente di quella come se fosse una compatta.
  • Pros: ottica di gran qualità, immagini di eccellente definizione e nitidezza, messa a fuoco macro di ottimo rendimento...
  • Cons: rifiniture del corpo migliorabili, zoom di lenta risposta, messa a fuoco -a volte- poco precisa...

Olympus C-765 Ultra Zoom

CNET
22 December 2004
  • Excerpt: Bien qu'il soit moins onéreux, l'Olympus Camedia C-765 Ultra Zoom à 4 mégapixels est presque identique à son grand frère, le C-770 Ultra Zoom. Les différences tiennent dans son boîtier en plastique (contre une combinaison de plastique et métal) et l'absence de griffe pour fixer un flash externe.

  • Excerpt: Olympus C-765 Ultra Zoom er trolig det minste kameraet på markedet med 10x optisk zoom. Hadde det ikke vært for det utstikkende objektivet hadde kameraet nesten vært på størrelse med et typisk lommekamera.

Olympus C-765 in C-770

  • Excerpt: Olmypus C-765 Olmypus C-770 Olympus je letos predstavil že tretjo verzijo novih sedmic. Poleg C-765 in C-770, ki ju bom predstavil v članku, je tu tudi še C-760 katerega je pred nekaj meseci pod drobnogled vzel day_light. Razlika med njimi na prvi pogled ni velika, vendar se jo opazi pri praktičnem preizkusu samih aparatov. Vse razlike so nekaj posebnega, zato dajo kupcu misliti, kateri aparat naj vzame. To dilemo vam bom poskušal olajšati skozi članek.
