Olympus C-770 UZ Review

Review Date: July 12, 2004

Category: Beginner to Serious Amateur

Olympus Camedia C-770 Ultra Zoom

Executive Summary

The Olympus Camedia C-770 Ultra Zoom is Olympus' fourth generation of ultra zooms (starting with the C-700 UZ), and it only gets better. Now featuring 4MP resolution, the C-770 UZ still sports the popular 10x optical zoom in a sleeker and more compact metal body.

The C-770 takes great pictures outdoors and indoors. It has a novel dual tubes pop-up flash to handle the different requirements of wide-angle and telephoto coverage, and I have my best indoors pictures so far with the C-770 using its on-camera flash.

The C-770's autofocus is able to distinguish small details and lock focus on them. It is quite fast in good lighting; however, lacking an AF assist illuminator, it will hunt in low-light to lock focus.

I like the sleeker body and the construction feels very solid. The Olympus Camedia C-770 Ultra Zoom is a wonderful package in a relatively compact body, and makes a very attractive proposition for beginner and serious amateur photographers alike. It's easy to use in Program AE mode, and there is enough flexibility to allow the beginner to later progress to more serious photography, if desired. If you're looking for an ultra zoom digital camera, be sure to include the Olympus Camedia C-770 Ultra Zoom in your short list.
