Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Unfortunately I also bought an extra battery and larger memory card thinking I would eventually find this camera satisfactory."
_
"P. S. The battery-life is good enough to last through the 128MB card, just remember to turn the camera off between use."
_
"Small size, great resolution, point & shoot, good battery life, resitant to cold (i dropped it in the snow and it's fine).I practically take it everywhere and it's still alive."
_
"Also note: if you're replacing a c-50 with the new c-60, you'll be able to use your batteries, your battery charger, and your memory disks with the new version."
_
"It has a good battery."

Manual

Manual:
"It works seemlessly in conjunction with my Windows XP laptop via USB cable (without having to install any software), however I'm going to buy an XD to SmartMedia adapter so that I don't need the cable (my laptop has a SmartMedia port).The only disappointments so far have been that the manual is poor (not all functionality is documented), and that the camera will take panoramic pictures only with Olympus brand flash memory."
_
"Pros:*picture settings*pamarama option in the screen menu*continuous shooting with manual setting*multiple flash modes (slow, redeye reduction, slow & redeye reduction, auto flash, and no flash)*long battery life between charges*durabilityCons:*small LCD screen*bulky camera body*15 second quicktime movies (no sound)*32MB card hold approx."
_
"The included software is barebones, but adequate, also, the included manual is weak although there is a full one on the CD."
_
"Almost all the pictures I took were blurry, took to much time in between the images, soft ware has a lot to be desired, manual in the package is flimsy - not at all what I am used to from the user friendly canon."
_
"Its easy to use once you use it a few times, or read the manual."
_
"- allows a great deal of manual control."
_
"Navigation and menus are easy, didn't even read the manual and was taking pictures in 2 minutes and connected to my computer for download in 5 minutes."
_
"In the three months that I've had this camera I've come to realize that this camera really does take fabulous pictures, both in manual and auto mode."
_
"The included software is barebones, but adequate, also, the included manual is weak although there is a full one on the CD."

Quality

Quality:
"I bought this thing six months ago and I must say the quality of the photos and the duribility of the c-50 was horrible!"
_
"Consumer digital has always had inferior image quality compared to even mediocre 35mm film cameras, but the 707 has been an excellent compromise."
_
"But since that I rarely take pictures in dark-settings nor do I need the superior response of the G-2, the differences between the quality of Olympus C-50 and the Canons are indiscernable."
_
"I am impressed by the ease of use and the very good image quality."
_
"The picture quality at 5 megapixels is unsurpassed for this size and price of camera."
_
"while i was happy with the picture quality, except for theabundance of red-eye in photos, i had a reocurring problemwith the track of the cover chipping and causing the slidinglens cover to loosen and even come off."
_
"Terrific quality shots - just enough zoom - and very hard to damage when it is closed up."
