This Olympus C-200 Zoom was my first ditital camera two years ago. A reliable camera, takes excellent quality pics in HQ mode considering it is only 2.1 megapixels. When using it with XP, downloads are absolutely instant with the usb cable. It's so easy to use, open the lens cover then point and shoot. To view pics its just as easy - push one button and there you have it. Easy timer and video functions as well (no sound though). Only problem I can see is the slow shutter speed which... (read more)

It worked for two months. In that time it was bad, and setting up the picture quility only held for one shot. After 3 month of hardly ever using it, the camera had stopped working. It was sent to Olympus and was returned after a month only to work for 5 days before returning to it's previous state. It was sent back two month ago and i am still waiting for it's return.

In total, I'm pleased to recommend the Olympus C200 digital camera to those first time users...... if you would like to take a better quality picture, then buy something which is more than 2.1MP, at least 3MP and above........ (read more)

I have previously owned an Olympus C960 zoom and suffered from a slow download of pictures via a serial lead. The C200 is very similar in operation to the C960 but the USB lead dramatically speeds up the download time. The pictures are of a very good quality and the camera is very easy to use. An AC adapter would have been a useful addition as it saves on batteries, however, internetcamerasdirect supply them at a very competitive price! The front cover of the camera has two positions and it... (read more)

having used a cheaper version of a sanyo, i wanted something better. i have used olympus normal cameras and have always had perfect results, but this really has outshone all the cameras i have every used and i saved at least £90. pounds by ordering on your web site. (read more)

Overall I am not satisfied with the value for money on the Olympus C200 digital camera and I wish I had bought the fuji 2600 that comes with rechargeable batteries, charger and 16Mb card. The camera performs poorly or fails to focus at all under low light conditions even under ISO 400. I haven't played with all the settings yet but this seems to be the case. I don't like also the fact you have to switch off the camera in order to see the pictures and / or delete them (read more)

Produces good images on the HQ setting - 32 images on 16 Mb smartmedia card. Easy to frame the subject in the optical viewfinder. In bright light the LED screen can be difficult to see (perhaps the same on all digital cameras). Good printed results on an HP840C, though not up to screen quality. Rechargable batteries are recommended since indoor shots using the red eye reduction mode eat them up. A lot easier to use than my Olympus OM1N and you don't have to wait to see the results. I was...

Good value for money and produces excellent photos. Using the camera for general photography and very close work and cannot be faulted. Camera feels solid when compared to Fuji and Kodak cameras which were alternatives I looked at. Has the usual digital camera problem of getting through batteries so rechargables are essential. If used at the higher resolutions available you need at least 32mb card to take a decent quantity of pictures. (read more)

This is my first digital camera and I am really pleased with it. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of buying it from Jessops rather than this site and this is not a mistake I shall be making again as the Jessops price is around £40 more for the same camera with none of the added extras that this site provides.
That said my first real use of the camera was last week whilst up in Scotland and it performed admirably even when climbing Ben Nevis in appalling weather and I was able to get some... (read more)

After looking at the digital camera market and comparing price and performance the Olympus C200 came out best for what I wanted. The only downside was the lack of user reviews because it is such a new camera. As my other camera is a Nikon, I wanted to ensure that the reproduction would be as good as possible for the price, and with the extras included by Internetcamerasdirect I am more than satisfied with the product. A phone call to Olympus' technical dept. was needed to find why the... (read more)

The Olympus C200 produces superb quality images up to 8"x10". No jaggies or pixelation at all when printed or viewed on screen. Macro mode works superbly, no barrel distortion. I totally advise everyone to buy this camera. It is the best quality I've seen anywhere at the price. (read more)

This camera is a follow-up to the 990z, but has been redesigned to have a more competitive price cost (e.g. against the Fuji 2400z). So gone are elements like the top LCD panel displaying shots left, but there's plenty of features for the price.
I was contemplating buying a Fuji 2400z before this camera came out. It costs a little bit more than the 2400z (but a lot less than the Olympus 990z) for which you get TV out connection, night mode shooting (with fairly good low-light shots as the... (read more)
