      Disadvantages

      Very easy to use, good price, good brand

      I purchased this as I wanted a well known branded digital camera at a moderate price (£120) and this was what I found. A solid compact camera (Dimensions (WxDxH): 12.3 cm x 4.5 cm x 6.5 cm), weighing 0.2 kg with a brushed silver lustre finish. Has an LCD screen on the reverse (obviously) as it is a digital camera. Has a video mode that enables you to shoot short videos of a couple of minutes duration - adequate video and much better say a camera phone video in quality.

      Comes as a 2.0 megapixel camera - generates good quality shots, including panorama mode and also a frame movie mode. The lens aperture is F/4.0 and focus free. It is a sturdier camera elimiates alot of those shaky pictures that some of flimsy phone cameras take. I found it to be incrediably easy to use with built in flash and a mid-range focus of 60cm. It also has red-eye reduction.

      Pros

      Sturdy; takes great shots; first class performance, protected front screen when in use, very easy to use, good price, all in all a good solid camera that wont break easy when dropped (which I have done on numerous occasions) and testiment to this is it is still going strong. Whereas other more flimsy cameras have been binned as they break so easily. This is by far the best camera I have owned and would recommend this to anyone. Mine also came with a photo dowload Disc package which enabled editing and storing of the photos very easily.

      Cons
      Comes with an 8mb standard card - so you need to purchase a bigger memory card for more memory. Needs standard 4 x AA batteries that use but fairly quickly. I bought a battery charger which helped.

      If this needs replacing I would replace it with exactly the same make. A superb camera from Olympus.

        Disadvantages

        I got my new baby - Olympus c-120 from a seller on eBay. (got the link from dooyoo too!) I did have a Canon for Christmas, but I just could not get it to work with my computer, nor could the store. In March I said goodbye and accepted the offer of a refund as they said that some cameras just do not work with my Windows XP. I was so confused and baffled by the experience that I thouht I'd never buy another. The Olympus was recommended by a friend who had one that worked fine with XP. So, after finding them in the shops for £160 I was pleasantly suprised to find the same on ebay for £98 with an offer of an extra 64Mb card and a case for a further £15 It arrived the following day but I couldn't even bring myself to open the box for a full week! I had 'feelings' that my troubles were going to start all over again! But no! The camera is perfect. All the buttons just where I expected, no jargon in the book and the software loaded first time. I snaped a shot of the box and plugged in the USB cable. The Camedia Suite software appeared along with a thumbnail picture - My Camera Box! Almost too easy! I am never without my Olympus C-120 (my new friend). It does all I want without the Bells & Whistles and confusion these 'features' cause. It's good at taking close-up's too - even my favourite little Primula fill the frame. In summary, if you want a lightweight digital that can take photo quality pictures that print fine up to about 8"x6" without any hassle - I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS CAMERA.
