Excerpt: Olympus America Inc., www.olympusamerica.com $599.99 list Comfortable to shoot. Highly controllable. Good image quality and 10X optical zoom. Slow. Lack of manual controls forces users to rely on menus, which are sometimes confusing. The 4-megapixel Olympus Camedia C-770 has more features than the C-765, our Editor's Choice among superzoom models, but purchasers should be sure they need the extra capabilities, as they add complexity.
Summary: The Olympus Camedia C-770 Ultra Zoom
is Olympus' fourth generation of ultra zooms (starting
with the C-700 UZ), and it only gets better. Now

Excerpt: : $799 : 3.5 : As the “ultra zoom” tag on the name suggests it is the lens that is the distinguishing feature of this camera. It is a whopping 10 times zoom, from 38mm (film equivalent) to 380mm. This is definitely the camera to take to the zoo. No animal is beyond its reach, The lens is not only long, it is also fast with a maximum aperture of 2.8, dropping to a respectable f3.7 at its longest extension.
Pros: The sensor is a 4 megapixel receptor delivering good detail and the potential for image enlargement to at least A4. Colour balance is good but the camera tends to overexpose. As the default brightness of the LCD screen is set too high the images look washed out on review, but the screen brightness can be lowered in the menu settings and the exposure compensation method is easy, once you stumble across it by accident.

Summary: he Olympus C-770 is an uncompromising camera that's capable of producing superb still photographs with its four-megapixel CCD.

Summary: A C-770UZ még a mju Mini Digital előtti időkből maradt ránk. Ez rögtön látszik, csak rá kell nézni. Konzervatív forma, sehol semmi rafináltság, formabontó ötlet. Csak egyszerűség és racionalitás. Kívül-belül egyaránt.
Excerpt: Olympus C-770 Ultra Zoom er blant de minste kameraene på markedet med kraftig zoom. Hadde det ikke vært for det utstikkende objektivet hadde kameraet nesten vært på størrelse med et typisk lommekamera.
Excerpt: Se qualcosa che vende può sfruttarsi, niente lo impedisce. La Olympus Camedia C-770 Ultra Zoom, ricettrice di una solida eredità di fotocamere ultra zoom, è un buon esempio di ciò. Con un sensore da 4 megapixel di risoluzione e uno zoom ottico da 10x, la C-770 è molto simile alla sua parente vicina, la Camedia C-765 Ultra Zoom. A questa, aggiunge un paio di dettagli: registrazione di video in formato MPEG4 e una slitta a caldo per unità esterne del flash.
Pros: Ottica di grande qualità, zoom da 10x, immagini di eccellente definizione e nitidezza, slitta a caldo per il flash...
Cons: migliorabili rifiniture del corpo, lenta velocità di accensione e di risposta dello zoom, messa a fuoco poco precisa...
