Olympus D-535 Zoom Review

Review Date: Nov 22, 2004

Category: Point-and-Shoot

Olympus Camedia D-535 Zoom

The Olympus Camedia D-535 Zoom is a compact digital camera with dimensions of 87.5W x 62.5H x 38.5D mm (3.4W x 2.5H x 1.5D in.) and weighing only 140g (4.9 oz). It has a polycarbonate construction which feels quite durable.

The Olympus D-535 fits well in the hands and the controls are set out nicely with dedicated buttons for: deleting, flash, review, exposure compensation, macro, and self-timer (the last three uses the arrow keys of the Four Way Controller). Since most of your shots will probably be taken in P-Auto mode, there is really only exposure compensation to set and this is easily done by pressing the Up arrow key, then the Right or Left arrow key.

The Flash button brings up a menu with available options listed and you then use the arrow keys to make a selection, followed by the OK key. What I like is that you don't really have to use the arrow keys: in fact, just keep pressing the Flash key to rotate through the available options, then clisk OK to confirm your selection. The Macro button works the same way.

The power button is at the top of the body and is recessed.

The rubber door that hides the A/V and USB ports swivels out of the way for easy access. The xD-Picture Card and 2 AA Alkaline batteries go into a compartment at the bottom of the camera.

The 1.5-in. LCD monitor has 130,000 pixels resolution and is very clear, allowing easy composition.

There is no AF Illuminator to aid in low-light focusing and the LCD monitor has no B&W high-gain option in extreme low-light situation. As a result, it may be quite difficult to view an image in low-light and the camera will be challenged to obtain focus lock in low-light situations.

The Olympus Camedia D-535 Zoom is a well-thought out camera and very user-friendly.
