The Olympus Camedia C-2, also known as the D-230 Brio, is a surprisingly good camera considering that it was launched way back in 2001. Although a little on the chunky side, the design still looks quite good today, and the sliding lens-cover/power switch works very well. There's no optical zoom, but the f/2.8 lens seems well made, giving bright images with attractive colour that are sharp in all but the extreme corners of the picture. For a 2mp camera it's really quite impressive. Others... (read more)

Olympus C-2 has great image and video quality, video playback, even with 2 megapixels it's better than most 5mp cameras with the anti blur effects and so on. Great for outdoor or indoor shots and great for action shots. Overall a great little camera, better than some of the new ones coming out despite it's lack of megapixels. (read more)

The Olympus C-2 camera is amazing. For the price you pay, you get quality pictures in a nice small compact camera. This camera will not let you down. The only negative thing about this camera is its batteries. It takes a lot of batteries, so you should get yourself at least 4 rechargable batteries. (read more)

The Olympus C2 digital camera is excellent value for money. Offering 2.0 megapixel resolution at an affordable price, I found this camera to be very easy to use while offering superb picture quality. The resolution is more than most people will need, while it offers a range of quality modes for the user to choose from. The C2 allows for exposure compensation, white balance under incandescent or fluorescent light, a 5x digital zoom, sequential drive, and short video capability amongst many... (read more)

I am an enthusiastic and quite knowledgeable photographer used to using SLRs but bought the C2 as a way to improve my overall technique. Very recently, friends asked me to shoot their wedding and I took the Olympus along 'just in case'. Unfortunately I jabbed my thumb through the shutter of my SLR when changing film and, petrified, had to shoot all the formal photos with the C2! Whilst the results aren't quite up to the expectations of a good SLR the shots were absolutely superb! Excellent... (read more)

I took quite a while to check out the digital cameras below £175 and this Olympus C2 was my choice. It's a great camera with loads of features and the photos look good. The batteries are a major pain and so you'll need to get Ni-Mh rechargeables for it at the same time. Other than that, shop around as I bought it at Currys for £150 and it's also on sale at Argos for £250! (read more)

I wanted a point and click camera and the Olympus C2 digital camera does that well, although I find the menu system a little difficult to navigate around. On HQ the pictures are fine but find the camera a little sensitive to bright lights or white backgrounds. It is worth investing in a couple of sets of NMIH rechargeable batteries. Normal batteries last no time at all and would cost more than a role of film to run the camera. It is also worth investing in a 64MB smart card as this gives... (read more)

I bought this Olympus C2 digital camera for £150 at Dixons although I was unsure whether I really wanted an optical zoom. It is very easy to use and interface to the PC.
2Mpixels is fine for what I want (snaps, to be viewed by PC) but, as expected, using the zoom at eg x2 results in poor pictures. In case you haven't worked it out yet, 2x digital zoom means you are back to 0.5Mpixels.

If you use the default resolution (Hi-res) with the Olympus C2 digital camera, you get 35 shots to the 16meg card and that gives you plenty of scope to do cut and paste later on your PC and get a good quality print. If you don't use the screen and stick to the viewfinder the batteries won't be a problem. But if you are like me and play about with the screen then be prepared to do a lot of recharging.
If you go to the next res down you can get 55 good quality prints if you dont have to crop... (read more)

What can I say?, Bought this Olympus C2 digital camera today!, taking it back tommorow for a full refund (I HOPE!).
Forget Point and click with this device, as colours seem washed out and faded.
Olympus Should Stick to Analogue Devices, as Korean mass produced plastic lets the company down. (read more)

My first digital camera, which produces excellent results.
Easy to use and very compact. Additional facilities are a bonus. Unfortunately the software is out of date and very cumbersome to use. In fact I haven't got mine working properly and shall have to rely on another program. Shame for such a good company like Olympus. My ratings are based on the Olympus C2 camera only. (read more)

Good service from "internetcamerasdirect" as I ordered my C-2 on the Net on Saturday night & it arrived on Tuesday. The camera is light, compact & easy to use. The 16Mb card gives 32 HQ photos which I found to be crisp & clear. Use of the monitor though zapped the supplied alkaline batteries within minutes so rechargables are a must! Movie mode gives a 20 sec film which is fine but with no sound it limits its use, plus it eats the the battery power so I don't think I'll be hanging up my old... (read more)
