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.

Olympus D-590Z / C-470Z Review - Pocket-lint

Feb 14, 2005 | Category: Olympus D-590Z / C-470Z

Olympus D-590Z / C-470ZThe Olympus D-590Z / C-470Z provides a basic level of specification in a delightfully curvy body and provides a 4-megapixel sensor and 3x optical zoom lens with a 35-105mm focal range. This is a nice, compact machine and one that brings 4-megapixels to the masses at a superb price. But the smoothing of detail by over processing means the larger prints made possible by the high resolution are not what they could have been, so the C-470 is good rather than great.

Olympus Stylus Verve / µ(mju:)-mini Digital Review - PhotographyBLOG

Olympus Stylus Verve / µ(mju:)-mini DigitalPresenting the Olympus Mju Mini Digital / Olympus Stylus Verve: on paper, a compact digital camera with 4 megapixels, 2x optical zoom lens that’s equivalent to 35-70mm on a 35mm camera, 1.8 inch LCD monitor, all housed in a weather-proof metal body. So far, so run-of-the-mill. Lots of other digital cameras offer a similar if not better specification at the same pricepoint, so why should you consider the Olympus Mju Mini Digital / Olympus Stylus Verve? Take it out of the box and you soon see why - Olympus have designed one of the most stylish compact digicams on the market today. The Olympus Mju Mini Digital / Olympus Stylus Verve looks breath-taking in all the glossy product shots and thankfully it doesn’t disappoint by being just as eye-catching in real life, with an anodised finish in iPod-like colours and that curved end which has never been seen before in the photography world.

Olympus D-590Z / C-470Z Review - DigiCamReview

Feb 02, 2005 | Category: Olympus D-590Z / C-470Z

Olympus D-590Z / C-470ZThe Olympus C-470 is a compact 4 megapixel digital camera with a 3x optical zoom lens and a decent 1.8″ screen. The camera records unlimited length videos with sound. The camera is easy to use, and produces good images with good colour and detail. The camera has a fairly quick switch on time, but focusing time is fairly average, although better outside. For around £150 (UK) this easy to use camera offers good value for money, is quite stylish, fits easily into pockets, produces good images, and has an excellent super macro mode.

Jan 28, 2005 | Category: Olympus D-590Z / C-470Z

Olympus D-590Z / C-470ZAlthough it has not had the benefit of the worldwide advertising campaign given the Stylus Verve, Olympus has been marketing the D-590 Zoom concurrently, a camera that shares the Verve’s ease of use but at a lower price. The Olympus D-590Z / C-470Z has a smooth shape, making it easy to slip into a pocket. The body is two-tone plastic, front and back a textured silver colour separated by a shiny silver coloured band.
