Olympus Camedia C-720 Ultra Zoom

 

The new Olympus Camedia C-720 Ultra Zoom is an instant standout for its monster 8X zoom lens, the equivalent of a 40- to 320-mm lens on a 35-mm camera. A comparable 35-mm lens, such as the Canon 35- to 350-mm EOS lens, weighs 3 pounds and costs...

Olympus C-720 Ultra Zoom

 

The C-720 Ultra Zoom has an 8X optical zoom, but the camera is difficult to use and its image quality is only fair.

Olympus C-720 Ultra Zoom

 

Is this this the ultimate "ultra zoom"? Find out in our review

8X zoom lens in a small package ; Full manual controls ; Customizable buttons and menus ; My Mode" helpful ; Improved Camedia Master software ; Pixel mapping feature blocks out bad pixels from CCD

Chromatic aberrations a problem; image corners can be soft ; Overexposed a few images that shouldn't have been ; No manual white balance ; No AF illuminator ; Loss of external flash support since C-700 ; No sound or zoom in movie mode ; Bundle could be...

The Olympus C-720UZ is far from being a perfect camera. But it still gets my recommendation, mainly because there aren't many other high resolution cameras with a big zoom lens. Photo quality was a mixed bag. Sometimes it was quite good, other times...
