“The Olympus C-2 camera is amazing. For the price you...”

Written on: 19/10/2004 by interpol (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 09/08/2002 by alex. (1 review written)

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 Full Review

“If you use the default resolution (Hi-res) with the...”

Written on: 24/03/2002 by Dave G. (1 review written)

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 Full Review

This reveiw made my mind up in purchasing the Olympus C-2, and when getting it home it was exactly as you (Dave) had said it was a very good reveiw even down to the battery life.

<br>Thank you.

A very well thought-out and accurate review, after using my old Sony DSC-F1 it was a shock to discover a normal viewfinder. It really does help the batteries, also the Sanyo batteries supplied are poor, Duracell are much better. I paid £169 at Currys but they threw in an additional 32MB card.

Just bought this camera and was going to submit a clear, concise and accurate report - Dave G beat me to it. Agree with everything he says, a great first-time camera.
