The Camedia C-2100 Ultra Zoom is a comfortable, flexible camera for digital photographers who take both wide-angle and telephoto shots.

Olympus C-2100UZ Review


Olympus surprised quite a few people when they first announced the C-2100 Ultra Zoom back on in June this year. Looking like an overgrown C-2020Z (on which it does appear to be based), the C-2100UZ sports a large 10x stabilised optical zoom lens. This...

Good image quality, neutral colour balance, good resolution for a 2 megapixel Excellent 10 times optical zoom with optical stabilisation Full set of manual controls with good range of aperture and shutter speeds Good low light ability Low AF and...

Slight chromatic aberrations and long zoom Electronic viewfinder still no substitute for a true TTL optical viewfinder Some barrel distortion at wide angle Some visible noise at ISO 200 or above No manual preset white balance Weird sharpening options...

Here's my rating of the Olympus C-2100UZ: (2 megapixel prosumer)

Olympus C-2100 UltraZoom


(I have been hinting [OK, screaming] at the manufacturers to design a camera around a miniature color LCD viewfinder for several years now. The benefits are TTL viewing with full camera and exposure data displayed inside of a magnified and light-shielded

Olympus C-2100 Ultra Zoom


Real photographers carry big bags full of lenses and film and stuff. Real photographers love to twist dials and poke buttons and fiddle with esoteric features. And real photographers are going to love the new 2.1 megapixel Olympus C-2100 Ultra Zoom camera

Olympus C-2100 Ultra Zoom digital camera


Want a digital camera that does pretty much everything? Try this one, then

For the kinds of pictures most people, even semi-pro photographers, want to take, the C-1200UZ is a big winner. Recommended

Olympus C-2100 Ultra Zoom


The shots above should illustrate the difference between the average 3X optical zoom and the C-2100's 10X "Ultra Zoom". Impressive, no

10X optical zoom. Need I say more ; Full manual controls ; Movies with sound ; External flash support ; Uncompressed TIFF mode ; Fast processing in both record and playback modes ; Nice bundle includes battery kit and remote control ; Impressive photo...

Strange limitation of shutter speeds in shutter priority mode ; No manual white balance ; Noise in low light shots in Program mode (see gallery) ; Not totally sold on the LCD viewfinder idea

It's hard to compare the C-2100 Ultra Zoom, since there aren't too many cameras out there with a zoom like this. As a 2.1 Megapixel camera, it's a great one -- it's basically the C-2020Z with a large zoom lens. It's also got all the necessary manual...
