Camedia C1 zoom

Ljelsom, Ciao
17 June 2007
  • Excerpt: "...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. It may only have 1.3 megapixels - which today is less than alot of mobile phones, but photos can be printed off perfectly in 6x4 of 7x5. The memory card for the camera comes in varying sizes or 8mb 16mb and 32mb and fit into most card readers or kodak machines. The camera has different ...

A Great entry level digital 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. Fair enough, it's only a 1.3 megapixel, and some might say that isn't good enough, but in my opinion, it's fine, as long as the pictures are printed out at around 4x6 inches. The camera itself is very simple to use straight ...
  • Pros: Inexpensive, No drivers required (For XP), Good quality
  • Cons: Eats alkaline batterys, rechargeables a must, only 8MB memory included

  • Excerpt: "...a pint on several occasions!) The Olympus Camedia C-1 is an excellent camera and well within budget at between £150-175 (don't know the exact amount, it was a present!) It has a 1.31 Megapixel matrix. Its small enough to fit into your pocket. The camera is switched on by moving the lens cover. Once the lens cover is open, you use it just like any other camera, press the button on the top, right hand side. The other controls for navigation, such ...
  • Pros: easy to use, good quality photos

  • 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. I decided then to try using my existing software to download the photos and tried adobe photodeluxe. It was then I discovered that the pc recognises the ...

  • Excerpt: "...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 could find at the time (including most of the internet stores I think). At the same time we also bought a 16 MB SmartMedia card for £15, a battery charger for £13, and a carry case which Jessops chucked in for free (nice one). The following bits are included in the box: Camera - obviously Strap Software ...

  • Excerpt: "...along the front displaying the Olympus logo. You have to open this to turn the camera on if you are in ‘Shooting Mode.’ Under the Lens Barrier is the Viewfinder and lens. Also on the front there is the Flash and Self-Timer light. Along the top there is only a shutter button. This is the button you press to take a picture. On the bottom there is a socket to attach a Tripod and there is the battery compartment. On one of the sides there is a slot where ...

Go Digital with Olympus for Less

  • Excerpt: "...Suite Software CD and a Olympus driver and reference CD along with a comprehensive manual in quite a few languages. I will mention this battery again as I was disappointed that it states non-rechargeable on the side, yet the camera has DC in 3V socket but no power lead was supplied… a bit of corner cutting here I fear. The camera itself is very neat and elegantly styled with 6 small buttons beside the small 1.5 inch TFT LCD colour monitor. ...
  • Pros: Elegantly Styled Nice to Hold Simple to Use
  • Cons: Lacks Features

  • Excerpt: "...missus`s catalogue I noticed the Olympus C1 USB. After reading the specs, I decided to go ahead and buy it. The camera is silver coloured and quite light (you have to remember it`s in your pocket) and has a built in flash BUT no optical zoom features. It connects to the PC via a supplied USB cable and installation of the drivers in Win98/XP is very painless. The camera is powered up by sliding the lens cover to onside, and after a couple of seconds ...
  • Pros: Compact, lens cover, good power consumption
  • Cons: Software won ` t recognise it,  ` snowy `  pictures
