Olympus C-2500 L

 

The Olympus C-2500L certainly turned a few heads when it was announced. Quite a few I'd imagine from their competitors. Olympus have always broken the mould, look at their range of traditional film cameras and you'll see cameras that are far from the...

Very good image quality (bright, well balanced, sharp, detailed, depth) ; SHQ JPEG mode makes for TIFF like images at half the size ; Ability to take both CF & SM cards ; SLR look and feel ; True TTL viewfinder ; Very flexible manual features (if...

Noise visible on images, especially in shadows ; Stuck pixels on long exposures ; Limited number of apertures (2 only??) ; Barrel & Pincishion distortion ; Chromatic Abberations ; Odd colour-shift from review image to real image ; Real manual focus...

The C-2500L will still appeal to alot of buyers and I'm sure Olympus will sell bucket loads of them, it produces high quality images and is a true digital SLR with a TTL viewfinder. Lots of manual features and lots of unique features, for me though it...

Olympus CAMEDIA C-2500L - digital camera review

 

There are plenty of mediocre, midrange digital cameras targeted at folks who just want to email pictures or to post photos on Web sites. Olympus's high-end, professional-level C-2500L digital camera goes well beyond that, both in price and features....

Lots of manual controls; no wait between shots.

Pricey; slow serial connection.

Experienced photographers should check out this old favorite, now available at increasingly low prices.

Digital Cameras - Olympus C-2500L Digital Cameras Review

 

Olympus has clearly "raised the bar" for performance in high-end digicams with the C-2500L. The image quality is exceptional, the design strong and user-friendly, and the range of application via the optional accessory lenses and the FL-40 dedicated...

Successor to the Camedia C-1400XL and remaining one of the best digital cameras on the market with SLR to boot.

Olympus C 2500L Digital SLR Zoom Camera

 

Olympus believes they have the digital camera for you in the new C-2500L SLR and have invested heavily in a media blitz on its behalf. The word is out and a lot of people are interested. So, when I received one for a trial I was as eager to see if it...
