Reviews and Problems with Olympus C-765 Ultra Zoom
Showing 1-10 of 189
Older camera with great optics and a powerful zoom
2 February 2014
Summary: This is an older camera (as you can tell by it's max resolution of 4 MP) but it has a great zoom & is reliable for action shots & touristy photos. It's bulk works against it, and you will probably want to get at least 1 spare battery (it takes a proprietary one that you can't pick up while on vacation). It also uses xD memory cards, which aren't the cheapest or easiest to find. But, for <$50, I'm willing to accept those minor flaws.
outstanding picture quality and magnificent range.

Summary: Have had other Camedia models. Each has outstanding picture quality and magnificent range. The 765 adds recharageable lion battery to the mix. The cost of batteries was the worst feature of previous models. Only thing on the wish list is more megapixels for large prints.
Summary: This is a rerun of a camera for me. What I love about it is the ZOOM - 30 to 40x zoom. Megapixels - last camera 3.2, this one 4.0. That is enough for most families!! Unless you plan to print a billboard| Most people do not know how to reduce the pixels to send via email anyway. What I don't like is that when the battery goes dead, you have to make sure you re-enter the DATE so that it records into the information of the picture.
Summary: This camera can zoom incredibly and has good quality. There is a tremendous amount of settings and options to mess around with for taking pictures. I'm a casual user, just taking pictures of vacations, friends, and family and it is great for me. The only problem I had is that some indoor lighting conditions may appear yellowish depending on the lights. No biggie though.
Olympus CAMEDIA C765 is great for macro photography!!

Summary: This is the second one I have owned. Dropped the first so many times I had to get another. Thought I would upgrade with a Samsung. What a disaster! Found another Camedia C 765 on ebay and grabbed it. I don't care how old a model it is, it works great. I design miniatures and it does just what I want!
Olympus Camedia C 765 Ultra Zoom 40.9 Megapixel Digital

Summary: If you are looking for a small camera to carry with you all the time, as I do, this is what you want. The zoom is incredible as is the clarity of the produced picture. I like it better than my bigger, heavier, longer zoom lens camera.
Summary: New cameras are on a megapizel craze and many buyers might pass on this older Olympus because its "only" 4 megapixels. Problem is, many new cameras provide more megapixels than the human eye can discern. People are paying for big megapixel numbers and don't get any functional benefit from them. While 4 megapixels on this camera isn't optimal, its more than adqduate for most uses.
