I got my Camedia free with a pc system, so I can't comment too much on the price. It is my first digital, and an excellent camera. This Olympus is very easy to use with a simple point and click system. It comes with an in built flash and useful finger guard to stop you from obscuring the lens and taking pictures of your thumb. 1.3 million pixels meant nothing to me, but it is certainly high enough resolution for my needs. There are three different quality levels. The highest only allows three shots per memory card, but is certainly up to SLR standard. High quality gives 6 shots, and standard allows for 24. I usually stick with 24 shots. ... Read the complete review

The ultimate in camera's must be a digital camera, And the Olympus Camedia C-830L has everything you need to take great photo's, It is missing one thing though, A FILM. Hurrah for that. No more waiting to see if that holiday snap turned out, or the picture of your loved one has there head still on there shoulders. Or just completely blank set of prints. This camera package includes a camera (it would be pretty useless without one) a carry strap (but no case, oh well can't have it all), software CD Rom, PC serial cable, Macintosh connector, video cable (pal), Smart media 8MB card, 4 batteries and an instruction manual. Did I say manual, sorry I meant ... Read the complete review

I recently got a great deal from PC World on a ex-demo of this camera, I was looking for something slightly cheaper than the retail price of this model but they knocked me £100 of the price which brought it into what I was looking for and boy am I glad they did this camera is superb. The LCD view finder is one of the crispest I have ever seen and the speed at which it saves the pictures is great. I like the way it uses Smart media cards rather than compact flash. I like the size of the camera although some mite say that is a little bulky seen as it has no zoom. The battery life is seriously shortened when using the LCD screen, that is the only ...

I would never have thought of spending £400 on a digital camera 2 years ago, which is what the going price for my Olympus 830L was then. It came as part of a computer package from Tiny, and I was doubtful as to the use of this camera. Since learning to use it (Yes, it DOES help to spend half an hour with the instruction manual...!!!), I have hardly used conventional film at all. I store all my snaps on the computer, view them on my 19" screen, which gives a fantastic clarity and quality. It opens such opportunities when it comes to sharing photos with friends and family who live far away. For those without PC facilities, I simply visit one of the many net photo ...
