Olympus C-370 / D-535 Review - Pocket-lint

Mar 07, 2005 | Category: Olympus C-370 / D-535

Olympus C-370 / D-535The Olympus C-370 / D-535 is about as basic as a digital camera get without being so automated it even takes the shots for you. The little brother to Olympus’ 4MP C-470 it is however styled completely differently, sharing not a jot with the bigger camera’s design and styling. A combination of ease of use, simple specification, nice handling and a super price make this camera good value for its target audience. Problems with image quality probably won’t become an issue considering the price and sheer pocketability of the C-370.

Olympus C-370 / D-535 Review - Cameras.co.uk

Feb 26, 2005 | Category: Olympus C-370 / D-535

Olympus C-370 / D-535The Olympus C-370 is a three megapixel digital camera with a 3x optical zoom lens. The zoom is equivalent to a 38 - 114mm lens in a 35mm film camera. Priced at under £100 it is an entry level model. The C-370 is likely to prove attractive to anyone who is looking for a relatively simple camera that is easy to use and can handle all the standard photo opportunities that you are likely to come across on holiday, at social functions and those that make up the family album.

Olympus C-370 / D-535 Review - DCRP

Feb 15, 2005 | Category: Olympus C-370 / D-535

Olympus C-370 / D-535The Olympus C-370 / D-535 is a point-and-shoot camera — perhaps too much so. The menus are stripped down with nearly no options. The biggest omission is white balance controls; indoor photos will not turn out well since the auto white balance doesn’t do a great job. Outdoors, the photo quality is decent but not spectacular. Photos are a little soft, with some muddy details. Redeye was also a bit of a problem. The camera features a 3X optical zoom lens, a nice treat considering the camera’s $150 price tag. Something else that’s nice is the build quality of the D-535 — it doesn’t feel cheap. The camera has a 1.5″ LCD display with good resolution; a larger screen would’ve been nice, but I don’t think there is room on this compact camera’s body. In addition, there’s no optical viewfinder, which bothers some people (like me) and not others. Low light shooting isn’t easy, as the screen doesn’t “gain up” much in those situations, and the camera does not focus well. Camera performance is below par, with noticeable shutter lag, long shot-to-shot times, and sluggish image playback. And finally, the camera’s silent movie mode isn’t terribly exciting.
