The 3.2-megapixel Olympus Camedia D-395 offers a nice set of basic features at a very affordable price. However, its 33mm lens (35mm-camera equivalent) limits its versatility. It doesn’t cost much more to get a camera with a 3X zoom lens, a feature that most people will find is worth paying a little extra for.
In typical Olympus fashion, the D-395 has a sliding lens cover that, when opened, powers up the camera. Its moderate size and weight–6.8 ounces with batteries and an xD-Picture Card installed–put this camera in the pocketable class, while it’s not too small for larger hands to operate.
