Excerpt: At first I was unsure about this camera as it is a little dated now and is rather big, but I soon realised it was aideal for my first digital camera. Olympus are a good make to begin with. This camera has a good zoom feature and a bright flash, meaning even dark photo's can come out OK.
Excerpt: I`ve had this camera a while now and use it at least every couple of weeks. Its relatively small,tough durable etc etc. Newer brands are getting lighter and smaller but i still feel that this camera is still a practicle, hassle free size. Its only 1.3mega pixels but dont be fooled!
Pros: relatively small, smart media card (you can get cheap f * ji cards giving you loads more memory very cheaply ! ), loads of scenario settings .
Cons: newer cameras are getting an awful lot smaller
Excerpt: This was the first digital camera I owned. Out of the box it was impressive. Very easy to use, with a sufficient variety of modes, good coverage from the flash and a sharp lense. I was able to get good 6x4" and even 7x5" prints from a sharp shot, which was surpring for just a 1.3 megpixel camera.
Excerpt: I've never owned a camera. I've always been put off by the ongoing expense of film and developing, so when digital cameras became popular, I was interested. I got this little number from PC World for £99 and it's worth every penny.
Pros: Inexpensive, No drivers required (For XP), Good quality
Cons: Eats alkaline batterys, rechargeables a must, only 8MB memory included
Excerpt: I got this camera around Christmas last year and haven't turned back. I now realise the benefits that digital cameras have over the old 'film' cameras. When I go on holiday I always take loads of pictures and pay a bomb to have them developed, for most of them to be either completely rubbish or not...
Excerpt: I have owned one of these cameras since christmas, it was a present. I couldn't wait to start taking pictures, so I took some of my dog, the old standby, and guess what?, the software supplied wouldn't recognise the camera! After reading and re-reading the manual, I was still no nearer a solution.
Pros: simple to use, lcd screen,inexpensive,smartmedia
Excerpt: Introduction ----------------- Although I don't have a digital camera at home, we have one at work and I can use it whenever I want, which suits me nicely. We bought the Olympus C-1 Zoom in September 2001 from Jessops (the high street camera store) in Manchester for £280, which was the cheapest we...
Excerpt: Whilst scouring the Ciao pages I found my eyes drawn to the Mega Competition! I know that all you people are now thinking “ Ha only for the money!” but who can resist a little healthy competition! I’ve just spent the last 2 days doing this op and Im hoping it will be my best ever! Be kind!
Excerpt: I will write this opinion now before I loose it or break it or do something that typically happens when things are in my care! The C-1 Zoom is perhaps aimed more at the domestic or family user who will buy it to 'snap' pictures for the photo album rather than the those who will want a digital camera...
Excerpt: I was hunting around for a decent digital camera in the £200 - £300 category, when browsing through the missus`s catalogue I noticed the Olympus C1 USB. After reading the specs, I decided to go ahead and buy it.
Pros: Compact, lens cover, good power consumption
Cons: Software won ` t recognise it, ` snowy ` pictures
