Default Olympus C-770 Ultra Zoom your thoughts on it ?


Just want to buy a Digital Camera, never had one, i want a good one
and one that takes movies is a must as well, even if they are low res.

640by480 15fps 25 minutes on a 512meg Xdcard is ok i suppose, beats
having a camcorder with you as well

Anyway was going to buy the 3.2mp version, but now the 4mp versions
price has come down to a price i can afford well could afford the
higher price but the lower price makes me want it more now

Ive read some reviews it seems good, just want some first hand,
reviews on it.

Thanks.

/ps Can you connect and external LCD to it, you know so you can point
the camera, but not look where its pointing at the LCD on the camera ?

Just like to know any camera have that ?

Thanks again.

HELLO NURSE.

I have a 770, 8080 and a Nikon D2h and have enclosed an outdoor shot taken
with the 770 with the background removed in Photoshop, it may help you
assess the lense quality. Although this camera is a comprimise, it does a
bit of everything, it is very good at everything it does without excelling,
I like it very much. It is relatively small has an external flash shoe, has
a decent lense and is reasonably fast. My main complaint is red eye if I use
the built in flash, so I use an external, the 8080 does not know how to do
red eye.

The 770 is a lot better than the older 720 for image quality that's compared
with the Pan FZ10 by another replier. The FZ10 is about the same quality as a
750 and I would rate the 770 as being similar or slightly better than the 750
(I've got one) for image quality. Any purple fringing is less than or similar
to other x10 zoomers, is only in the corners and is easily corrected for with
either -0.3EV or in Paint Shop Pro with the moire filter which gives perfect
results. The choice is mainly down to whether you really need x10, the price,
and size, it's the smallest x10 which is worth a lot for convenience. I thought
it did 30fps by the way ..........

I have one of the earlier Oly 7XX models, but I like my newer Panasonic
FZ10 much better. It has 4MP, 12X zoom, f/2.8 over full zoom range, Leica
lens, and optical image stablization. You can find my detailed comparison
of the two, with sample pics, at

I liked the C-770 Ultra Zoom for sports photography, but did not like
the purple fringing and blooming.
