Olympus C-2040 ZOOM DIGITAL CAMERA Camera Review - PCWorld

 

The C-2040 is a solid, general-purpose digital camera that allows fully automatic or manual operation for more creative license. But photographers who like enlargements and are picky about fine details should opt for the C-3040.

Clunky, unorganized menus ; No sound recording in movie mode ; Seems a bit pricey at with $699 list price

Aside from all that, though, the C-2040Z is a nice upgrade to an already excellent camera. I have few issues with it, and most of them are minor. If your old digital camera is looking for an upgrade but you're not quite ready for the big leagues of 3...
