Excerpt: this camera is great. it has alot of features. I like the different backgrounds it has. its must be getting worn out because it has startd messing up already. it has a 4 mp camera but it takes beautiful pictures. I really like olympus. they have pretty good stuff. I dont know what else to say. the camera is a good price for what I pad for it years ago. even tho I cant remember what I was going to say.
Excerpt: I have had the olympus C 740 3.2 megapixel camera for over 5 years. This camera has a 10 optical zoom. It has many different modes. Some of the modes are portrait, landscape, sports, nightime. I also, bought a telephoto lens when attached it makes the camera a 32 optical zoom. I use the lens when I go to a sporting event so that way I can really zoom in on what I want to take a picture of. I feel that olympus is one of the top names for cameras.
Olympus Stylus 740 is Tough stylish and functional

Excerpt: I bought this camera as i was going on an outdoor college project trip and needed a tough digital camera to document some of the work we were doing. while searching for outdoor digital camera's i came across this beauty, and i mean that literally as it is very aesthetically stylish. It has all the functions that Digital cameras have.
Excerpt: We have used our Olympus camera for 6 or 7 years now. I am a point-and-shoot type of person, so I just set it on an automatic function and it takes great pictures. My husband likes to mess with all the aperture settings, so he puts it on a custom function. We've both enjoyed using this camera. It has a 10x optical zoom, so I can get up close and personal with my subject without being too obtrusive.
A great beginner camera for this digital age. Plenty of advanced features.

Summary: This Olympus Stylus 740 was an exact copy/replacement for one I have had for several years. I finally managed to break this tough little camera after years of use. (it had been dropped many times and kept coming back for more) I think that well over 10000 photos were taken both on the job and in family life with it. The photo quality is excellent, I wanted a replacement that I was familiar with. This camera is compact and has a 5 times zoom.
Summary: I purchased this as a gift. It's easy and intuitive to use, takes nice pictures, offers weather resistance, and is pretty easy on the battery to boot. It's a very nice camera to carry outside while walking in the woods according to my fiance.
Pros: The Macro Mode is better than most cameras and the video had better sound than other cameras
Cons: The Olympus Stylus Cameras has one major design flaw which is the battery cover. A piece of cheap plastic is screwed onto a metal hinge and when you push the hinge closed the plastic is what keeps the door closed. It eventually breaks w/normal use
