Written on: 30/04/2003 by KSH. (1 review written)

I have used the Olympus C960 for two years. A fantastic camera - it is easy to use and produces excellent quality pictures even on low resolution.
Some reviewers have commented on the heavy use of batteries. An obvious and very simple solution is to use rechargable Nimh units - I get about 80 low resolution photos per charge. This seems reasonable to me… Read Full Review

Hi,
<br>
<br>If you do not have the lead that connects the Camera to a computer you can still get the images by using a SmartMedia reader with a USB connection (I use one made by Hama). These cost about £15 UK pounds - about $24 US dollars where I am).
<br>
<br>The Olympus CAMEDIA software can be downloaded from the olympus website (I looked at the UK site www.olympus.co.uk), but you might want to ask them to send you a CD - version 2.1 of the CAMEDIA Master package comes with the camera.
<br>
<br>I am not sure about the instruction book - I think Olympus might be able to help by sending you a copy.
<br>
<br>I hope this helps,
<br>
<br>Kevin

aThe Olympus C960 is a super digital camera for the price. On 'High Quality' (HQ) setting it is possible to print upto A5 size with hardly any sign that the picture is digital- at 1.3 meg pix it is truly remarkable… Read Full Review

I was disappointed with this digital camera. It is capable of taking very good panoramic images but it is not as user frendly as other cheaper digital cameras I have used. Transfer rate is particularly slow… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/07/2001 by Ade. (1 review written)

I bought Olympus coz I figured I'd get quality optics and good build standard and I was right. It's a lovely piece of kit but either buy a smartmedia reader for your PC or a truck-load of batteries. With usage this high they should really include a mains adapter in the price, if you buy from the high street haggle for one because they're not cheap. The Camedia software is easy to use and installation is a breeze.
Overall I'm impressed with the image and build quality and I would buy Olympus… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/07/2001 by Peter Thomas. (1 review written)

When I got the camera, my first digital, I thought it would take me forever to master the thing. What a revelation, I was photographing within 15 mins of reading the manual. My results were brilliant, I could delete shots I didn't like and retake them, the zooms are pretty great especially the digital mode, the only negative point I could find was the high use of batteries with the LCD display on.
All in all I found it very hard to take a bad shot with this camera, and I would recommend it to… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2001 by Bertrude. (1 review written)

My first digicam, and I like it. Takes excellent quality sharp photos and is easy to use. Panoramic shots very useful. I like the video out - you can do slide shows on your TV, but better still plug into a VCR for use as a very basic video camera for messing about with home movies. Fun!

Only downer is the slow serial link - I'm going to invest in a usb reader or such like… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/04/2001 by Southerner. (1 review written)

This is an amazing little camera, which provides 1.3 mega-pixels and several quality resolution formats which will allow over a hundred shots on a standard 8Mb SmartMedia card. The zoom lens is a nice element which provides upto 3X optical and 2X digital, for a total zoom of 6X, meaning less memory taken up for those distance shots. Camera is compact and very easy to use. Recommended add-ons for this camera would be a 32Mb Smartmedia card, a Flashpath Adapter for your 3.5" floppy drive, a… Read Full Review
