ISO 64 Makes Olympus C-770 an Outstanding Digital Camera
5 July 2014
Summary: This C-770 features ISO 64 which can take vivid and outstanding pictures. C-770 is a wonderful product because of ISO 64. However,this feature is no longer in production. I bought the original C-770 and several used ones from Ebay for spare. The only problem is the genuine Olympus battery is very expensive and the no name aftermarket battery does not last long.
The Best Camera ever, I have owned newer they all fail
25 January 2011
Summary: Durability, doesn't freeze or act up in any way. The pictures are awesome and you can enlarge them to poster size and they are crisp and clear. The zoom is invaluable. I have owned newer cameras but they have all broken down too soon. This is my third olympus camedia, the other two were stolen.
Somewhat Disappointed - Noisy Pics and 'wierd events'
19 July 2006
Summary: I've only had my C-770 for two weeks, but am disappointed in the grainy-ness of the shots. I tested all 4 file 'sizes', and ISO ratings. My 2 Meg. Canon has less grainy-ness, and I was expecting a 4 meg camera to be 'twice as good', which it isn't, objectively speaking. Also, intermittent wierdness: 1) I take a picture, it shows up on the LCD screen, i.e., 'proof' that the picture exists, then later, has disappeared from the Card!
Summary: The C-770 has lived beyond my expectations. I have used this camera with multiple pre-set modes; portrait, night, sports as well as the default mode and true to the claims the outcome was fantastic. However, on the maximum 10X Zoom you definitely need a Tripod because I haven't been able to reduce blur when shooting without one.It captures movies with amazing clarity and the recording time is limited only by the memory. A must buy for photograpgy enthusiasts.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my C-2100. It's a good camera except for the lack of stabilisation and image noise at low light or long zoom. In low light or indoors, flash is a must. Contrary to another review, you CAN override factory settings on power-on with your own. You must navigate the menu system to do this. You can also edit photos on the camera. The macro and super-macro are great for photographing flowers.
Summary: If you are looking for a camera that won't empty your wallet but will provide you with an opportunity to grow as an amateur photgrapher, look no more. As a "rookie" photographer (meaning I had never used anything other than just a point and shoot for pictures - and they were never very good), I was looking for a camera that would have more advanced features - including a powerful zoom - and that would allow me to add on external devices like filters, wide angle lens,...
Summary: I just received this camera last week and I am so impressed with the quality of the pictures- they are incredibly vibrant and clear. The zoom lens is wonderful for taking close up portraits and for using at my son's soccor games. Best of all, there is relatively no delay in picture taking, you can set it for consecutive pics and it has a great movie feature with sound!! A great price for all the features and easy to use. I am very pleased with this purchase!
Summary: The Olympus C-770 ultra zoom is everything it is cracked up to be. It is however a complicated camera with a lot of sophisticated features. If you want to just take snapshots this camera will do just fine but you will get better value out of a lower priced less full featured camera. If you are a serious photographer but do not want to buy a digital SLR this is a great camera.
