Written on: 13/02/2006 by CHEFFESS2002 (1 review written)

The Olympus C-350 is an excellent digital camera. It was a good price, easy to use, the XD cards are great, and they have come down in price over the last couple of years.

I now take pictures off all occasions, and if I don't like them I can just delete them.

It is a great digital for taking pictures of the kids growing up… Read Full Review

Have owned an Olympus c-350 for eighteen months and find it an excellent camera, easy to use, plenty of storage with 64mb card, and small to carry. have no problems with excellent prints, and simple to down load on to computer. battery life lets it down.

Written on: 09/06/2004 by Busymum (1 review written)

Olympus C-350 Zoom??? This is the right digital camera for me without a doubt. I did a lot of research before buying this camera - my first digital and being extra fussy about things I was a little afraid of making a wrong choice. I have been using it non stop now for 4 months too. I take pics to print on SHQ (super high quality) and they print to perfection on my Canon i560 printer (another great choice) with epson glossy paper.

Written on: 23/05/2004 by citizen edge (1 review written)

Bought this Olympus C-350 digital camera a year ago for use in all kinds of situations. Very easy to use, it adjusts to the light quality and focuses in just a second, has many and good shot types and the quality of the pictures is exceptional in outdoor use (I use it to take pics of buildings and architectural details). But the interior pics are not so good, specialy because of the flash and some noise in dark areas. Used it in an auto show and the focus was bad in dark cars, I think that the… Read Full Review

The Olympus C-350 is a light, stylish and compact digital camera which is brimming full of features.
Excellant picture quality.
Easy to use menu system. You can start taking photo's almost straight away.

The Olympus C-350 has excellent auto-control in varying light conditions.
Top image quality.
Purchased 64 MB memory card which is essential as the 16 MB card is inadequate.
An excellent first digital camera option.
I give it a five star rating in all areas, particulary image quality and value for money… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2004 by lastmohican (5 reviews written)

I decided to buy this Olympus C-350 digital camera after reading a lot of reviews/ asking lots of people and performing market research. The image quality is so good that I no longer think of some minor drawbacks. This is a great camera and I would recommend it to anyone. Although I have not used another digital camera before, I can tell that this one is a really good choice. The menu is so user-friendly that you can start with everything without even looking at the manual first! And I would… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/12/2003 by fishbulb (2 reviews written)

The image quality of the Olympus C-350 Digital camera is excellent in varying light conditions with or without a flash. All menu driven but the menu's available are dependent on the position of the sliding front cover. However it is very clear once this idea is grasped. Superbly featured for a camera in this price range. The panoramic image is particularly good although an Olympus memory card is needed for this to work. First class value for money; underpinned by superb after sales support… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/07/2003 by Adam. (1 review written)

I was astounded by the quality of picture the Olympus C-350 delivers. For picture quality it gives my far more expensive (but slightly older) Sony DSC707 a close run for its money.

Make sure you purchase at least 64mb of memory… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/07/2003 by KINGLUCAS. (1 review written)

I HAVE MY C-350 DIGITAL CAMERA FOR 2 WEEKS. I HAVE SHOT OVER 500 PHOTOS ALREADY. I OWN THE 16MB MEMORY + I BOUGHT A 64MB MEMORY. USUALLY I USE THE 1024X768 ANALYSIS SINCE THE OTHER ONES TAKE UP SPACE ON MY SMALL MEMORY CARDS. I THINK THIS CAMERA IS A GOOD DEAL BUT BE CAREFULL THE BATTERIES RUN OUT VERY QUICKLY. U MUST BUY 2000 MAH BATTERIES PLUS THE RIGHT RECHARGER OR ELSE YOULL ONLY GET FUSTRATED. THE PICTURE QUALITY IS VERY GOOD FOR A 3.2 MP CAMERA. THE CAMERA IS LIGHT AND DOES NOT MAKE A LOT… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/06/2003 by Bob. (1 review written)

When I bought the C-350, I simply wasn't prepared for the quality of the images produced by such a small unobtrusive-looking camera. Everyone who's seen them has commented on how sharp and clean they are, with absolutely natural colouring. It easily handles difficult conditions such as sunlight reflecting from water, or illumination by tungsten lighting.
I've been noticing some bad reviews for the C-350 (called the D-560 in the USA) which I believe just show the inexperience of the… Read Full Review

Thank you Bob for your fair dinkum review. I have just purchased this camera late today as I write and have not yet had the chance to try it out.
<br>I have followed your link to your photo album and I am amazed at the picture quality of the photos you have taken, I really hope I get the same results.
<br>Cheers Steve from Sydney.

For a digital camera costing less than £200 one might expect low basic results. Not so with the Olympus. It is excellent value for money. Good buy for the first digital buyer. Not a complicated all singing and dancing model, but straight forward point and shoot with very good results… Read Full Review
