Olympus camedia D595 5.0 megapixel camera
10 March 2011
Summary: I love this camera. It is small & compact and takes great pics. In fact it takes better pics than some friends that have much larger megapixelcameras. But what I love best and the reason I chose it was because it has an optical viewfinder too.
Summary: I wanted a better resolution than what I had on my old camera. This camera is easy to operate and although it was just the camera for sale I could get all the needed attachments to go along with it right on ebay. Lightweight.
Summary: This is a compact point-and-shoot. Obviously not current technology but the picture quality is very decent for what these go for on ebay. It appears quite robust and it also has a manual mode for a bit more advanced users. Note that the card format is xD which is unusual but you can buy an adaptor for microSD.
Summary: Bought this camera for my grandson for Christmas. All features are easy to understand and use. Picture quality has been just superb, including the stop action sports setting. Olympus has just the best lens quality there is, in my opinion. We have not been disappointed with one feature of this small, convenient digital starter camera for our 11 year old. An excellent choice and a great buy on ebay.
Summary: I bought the CAMEDIA D 425 camera (please note this is not the D 595 5.0) and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this camera. It is a 4.0 megapixel camera that captures video as well. The camera's size is perfect for carrying in a pocket. My only complaint is i did not realize the battery did not come with the camera. As goes to show ask all questions before placing a bid. Overall, I'd recommend the camera.
Summary: Wife owns a D-595, and likes it a lot, so I decided to buy one on E-Bay for my son. Camera works on both AAs and Lithium ion batteries (get rechargeables), and takes a good number of shots with either. Note: Litiums don't drain as fast as AAs so are to be preferred. The LCD is only 1.8" which is small compared to the 2" and 2.5 inch screens that you find on digitals nowadays but is perfectly adequate. One thing I like about the D-595 is that it has an optical viewfinder.
Summary: Well!I bought the Olympus CAMEDIA 5.0 mp camera because my Olympus CAMEDIA 2.0 had been dropped on the floor too many times and the batteries were taped in. Meanwhile, it still takes awesome pictures, but having the batteries pop out all the time was a pain since we use it in our rather busy ebay business. I purchased the CAMEDIA 5.0MP figuring that I didn't need any more than 5.0 MP since I didn't plan to print anything larger than 11 x 14".
Summary: I initially bought this camera because it is one of the few affordable digital cameras that can take video with sound. The video is neither crisp, nor is the sound quality excellent, but when you need a video camera to capture memories that a simple photograph can't...this will fill that need none the less. I like to carry my camera with me often, and this is my 3rd digital camera since they were made available to buy.
