Olympus Camedia C-770 Ultra Zoom
18 July 2006
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
featuring 4MP resolution, the C-770 UZ still sports
the popular 10x optical zoom in a sleeker and
more compact metal body. The C-770 takes great pictures outdoors and indoors.

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. You won’t find it in the totally inadequate instruc...

Summary: he Olympus C-770 is an uncompromising camera that's capable of producing superb still photographs with its four-megapixel CCD. It's also blessed with up to eight minutes of video capture at 30fps. With its tough, black metal body and powerful zoom, this is a quality purchase and a real contender.
Summary: The test camera produced images with similar colour balance, contrast and saturation levels to those from the C-760 UZ. Not unexpectedly, significantly less noise was found in low light shots, especially at the highest ISO settings. Digital zoom shots were also clearer, but marginally over-sharpened. Artefacts were visible along the edges of contrasting tones, but compression artefacts were not detected. The flash also appeared to have more punch. . .
Pros: Good handling and range of controls, Excellent close-up performance, Conservative power consumption
Cons: No image stabilisation, Slow AF in low light (no AF assist light), Poor auto white balance in incandescent light [BG05]
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.
