Olympus C 770 Ultra Zoom
Strengths: Solid feel and handling,good photos, excellent zoom. Mpeg4 movie mode is also excellent, just make sure to enable sound before recording.
Weakness: Sound recording should be automatic on movie mode. Flash unit could be better at max. distance.
Great photos, Very good ease of menus, excellent zoom.Excellent Mpeg4 movie mode.The LCD display is good, but I prefer using the viewfinder in most instances.Do get a bigger memory card if you use the movie mode.
Excellent software with camera as the printouts were pretty good and also the panoramic shots.

Strengths: Has a great 10x zoom, takes nice outside pictures
Weakness: Very short battery life, Flash is terrible for indoor pictures, Pictures could be sharper, Have to download manual, No case.
I like the fact that it has such a great zoom. It takes nice pictures outside on sunny days, but indoor pictures are not up to par. I even used SHQ to help, but it did not make much of a difference. The flash is very weak for taking inside pictures, plus the pictures are not very sharp at all when it comes to indoor pictures. I am planning on buying an extra flash, hoping that it will help with...

I like the fact that it has such a great zoom. It takes nice pictures outside on sunny days, but indoor pictures are not up to par. I even used SHQ to help, but it did not make much of a difference. The flash is very weak for taking inside pictures, plus the pictures are not very sharp at all when it comes to indoor pictures. I am planning on buying an extra flash, hoping that it will help with indoor pictures? The battery life is pathetic. I have to carry numerous spares if I want to be sure I have power. It is also difficult to get the battery out, which is bad if there are some pictures you want to take right away. I missed numerous shots because of this. The adjustment time and delay time is terrible. Again miss a lot of shots because of that, especially if someone is moving. The fact that you have to download and print the full manual stinks, especially since it is over 200 pages!!! It would have also been nice if for that price they would have included a carrying case. I have owned numerous Olympus 35mm cameras and have always been happy with them, but I am not happy at all with this digital. I would definitely try a different brand next time. Plus when I have contacted the web site about different questions I have not been happy with their responses. It seems the people do not know what they are talking about. they either do not answer the question that I am asking directly or are so vague you don't know what they mean because they truly don't answer. So you basically just have to guess and keep trying on your own and that does not always work.

Strengths: Excellent. Two thumbs up. My dream camera.
Weakness: Battery discharges quickly. More pixels could be there.
I am a serious photographer. And after owning this camera after a series of Canons and Ricohs and Kodaks, I can finally say: I hit on my dream cam. It is simply wonderful -- awesome. It's AF lock is wonderful, it could have more pixels but still the picture quality is very fine.

I've only owned the camera for...
Strengths: Macro mode is fantastic, zoom is great, panoramic function is a blast to play with, movie mode makes clear videos, with sound.
Weakness: It's a crowd pleaser, my friends, family, and company get to play with it more than I do.
I've only owned the camera for about 2 weeks, yet I haven't been able to put it down since. The shots are great, the available functions are ones that the average person can, and will, actually use. I've taken macro shots, full 10x optical zoom shots (I don't participate in that digital zoom jazz), low light shots, portraits, panoramic shots, etc.. All turned out great.. I would highly recommend...
