Olympus Camedia C-150 ... creative functions and a bright lens (f2.8), this auto focus model guarantees top-quality results while remaining incredibly easy to use. The C-150 also contains a well-laid out multi-language menu with a choice of four languages. Its operation as well as picture framing and viewing is aided by the 1.8-inch LCD monitor, the largest in this camera category. Thanks to its compact design, the C-150 can be taken almost anywhere to shoot the most spontaneous moments.
The CAMEDIA C-150 offers exceptional ease of use for a smooth entry into the world of digital photography. Just insert batteries and xD-Picture Card, then point and shoot. Everything else is built in: automatic systems for exposure, focusing, ISO, white balance and an integrated flash with various modes as well as a high-quality 38 mm AF lens (equivalent to a 35 mm camera). As such, the CAMEDIA C-150 is perfect not only for complete beginners to photography, but also for newcomers to its digital form. Four scene programs provide the photographer with pre-set shooting parameters for common motifs, such as portraits, self-portraits, night scenes and landscapes.
Besides automatic white balance, a selection can be made between four pre-sets for sunlight, overcast conditions, tungsten and fluorescent lights for true color reproduction. Other functions, including panorama mode, 2 in 1 shooting, and recording of short movie sequences in QuickTime Motion JPEG format, offer the photographer further innovative shooting options. But the fun does not end there. Photos captured in color may be changed to black and white or sepia, altering compositions to suit personal tastes or capture a particular mood. The image rotation function is particularly useful when viewing photos originally taken in the portrait format, on a TV.
Thanks to the USB AutoConnect interface, images are downloaded quickly and easily to a computer. The CAMEDIA Master software delivered with the camera offers users numerous options for further processing their digital photos. Images are saved onto an xD-Picture Card, the ultra-compact media storage card.
The CAMEDIA C-150 supports the EXIF 2.2 standard as well as PIM II, enabling compatible printers to apply the saved data in order to produce optimized results. Featuring 2.0-megapixel resolution, the CAMEDIA C-150 is an extremely versatile and affordable digital camera which is child's play to operate.

I have looked and looked for a digital camera for ages, to be honest as I am no expert I found the whole thing quite daunting. I have always been a 35mm type person and I feel quite confident with most aspects of normal cameras. But the whole digital field is new. I have used a few digital cameras but buying my own and what do I want it to do, that was something else. Then along came Christmas and the most amazing woman in the whole wide world had been out looking, researching and discreetly asking me about what I would look for. The end result is she gave me a really amazing present. I can honestly say I ... Read the complete review

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ When chooseing a digital camera there are lots of choices you will have to make and just like all technologe things change so often that one minute you will think you got a really good deal or the best camera around and the next you will think other wise but we all have to make choices and in the pertect world we could have a test run on them before we buy,but we dont so we have to choose as wisely as we can.

i bought 2 of these wonderful little cameras last september just before going on holiday, one for myself and one for my other half. i have been a keen photographer for many years and for a while was semi professional but i had never ben tempted to venture into the digital field. the name of olympus in the world of 35mm is synonymous with quality, this and the low price swung it for me. in less than half an hour i was producing excellent images but more surprising my technophobic wife was getting equally good results. the camera is neat robust and well made, it has a video feature, settings for portrait, landscape and close up. the 2 megapixels give good prints up to ...

I have had an Olympus C-150 for about nine months, and find it a great camera - its easy and simple to use, has a reasonable battery life and menu structure is clear and simlple. To date it has always taken great pictures during the day or in well lit places, the one draw back it does have is its capability to take night shots or in darker places - often these shots appear fuzzy and blured or dont come out at all, appearing just as a black ...
