  • Conclusion: The Olympus D-595 Zoom offers good image quality at a good price, but that's about it. If you want extras, you'll have to look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Good image quality. Low price.
  • Cons: Small LCD. Slow bootup. Some distortion on both ends of the zoom range.

  • Excerpt: Introduction: The Olympus Camedia C-500, also known as the Olympus D-595, is available from £151 including VAT - the C500 is a fairly compact 5 megapixel digital camera, with a 3x optical zoom lens (equivalent to 38-114mm on a 35mm camera), and a 1.8" TFT screen. The camera is enclosed in a silver plastic body. It records unlimited 320 x 240 / 30fps videos with sound. The camera's quite compact with the following size: 104.5 x 60.5 x 36.5 mm.

  • Cons: Struggles to focus indoors, Only 14mb provided, Can't use panorama mode with internal memory! (only Olympus XD cards!)

  • Summary: This camera would serve most people's needs, but is not exceptional. We would only really recommend it if you do a lot of macro photography.
  • Pros: High-quality images, very fast data writing, close-up macro function
  • Cons: Awkward design, some blurring at the base of images

Olympus C-500 Zoom

23 April 2007
  • Summary: The Olympus C-500 Zoom is an easy-to-use, well-made entry level digital camera that ultimately is difficult to get too excited about. With the exception of the Manual exposure mode, which gives you some control over aperture and shutter speed, it doesn't offer anything to set it apart from the competition. It's not particularly compact or stylish, doesn't offer a wide-angle or ultra-zoom lens, has an average movie mode, and only has a 1.8 inch LCD screen.

  • Excerpt: Tutti sanno che le marche fotografiche soccombono facilmente all'incanto della moda e si arrendono ai disegni divini dell'estetica, lasciando da parte altri attributi. Non sono pochi quelli che preferiscono una fotocamera che non sia né buona né economica, ma certo bella. La Camedia C-500 Zoom è precisamente tutto il contrario.
  • Pros: buona qualità di immagine, modalità di esposizione totalmente manuale, messa a fuoco efficace, consumo energetico soddisfacente...
  • Cons: dimensioni relativamente grandi, angolare scarso, l'apertura in tele fa male i conti, obiettivo un po' lento...
