Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Focus

Focus:
"The TRUEPIC AF gives very good focus in the best lighting conditions (although very sloooow to focus) but has failed me several times on no-flash indoor shots."
_
"For low light and full zoom, it's a little challenging to focus."
_
"I heard some complaints about not able to focus on full zoom - but I did not experience this problem at all during normal light conditions."
_
"OC is much faster at this and can achieve certain points of focus in even the worst of conditions."
_
"I can't really complain about focus or shake issues because they are common to many cameras (even my 35mm SLR, which is a nightmare to focus with in low light) and the problem is easily remedied."
_
"There are some focusing issues with low light or blank spaces, but the manual focus feature is great."
_
"For macro images, being able to focus at less than 5 cm is a great feature, allowing ultra close ups."
_
"The TRUEPIC AF gives very good focus in the best lighting conditions (although very sloooow to focus) but has failed me several times on no-flash indoor shots."

Zoom

Zoom:
"However, on the maximum 10X Zoom you definitely need a Tripod because I haven't been able to reduce blur when shooting without one."
_
"Oct 2004: Additional notes to my previous review:I've now had a chance to try the video mode on the C-770 (and compared it to my Panasonic mini-DV GS15):++ 10X zoom gives enough zoom for indoor filming; not sufficient for good outdoor shots (esp sports)."
_
"Zoom control responds with a 1-2 seconds lag: would be hard to use in action scenes."
_
"For low light and full zoom, it's a little challenging to focus."
_
"I heard some complaints about not able to focus on full zoom - but I did not experience this problem at all during normal light conditions."
_
"The 10x zoom is great."
_
"The extensive 10x zoom sounded great but once I tried using it at a zoo I found that it could usually only be extended about half-way in order to get a clear shot, so what's the point?"
_
"The camera itself is great with it's 10x zoom and 4 megapixels."
_
"For the serious photographers who would enjoy outdoor shoots & harness the power of the zoom - Go for the 10x & up series of camera's from Olympus or Canon."
_
"I recently went to Rocky Mountain National Park for the real test - it was nice to be able to finally zoom in on wildlife and get very good quality shots that you are excited about when you pull up on your computer."
