Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Flash

Flash:
"Flash photography of portraits are disappointing."
_
"- picture quality is good- picture download is easy and quickCons:- lens cap keeps on falling off in my bag- flash pictures are horrible; flash ruins everything- need to turn off flash repeatedly, almost for every picture and it takes three pushes of the flash button to get it there each time- picture is taken about a second after you press the button, so you don't get the picture you wanted- takes time for the lens to come out when you turn the camera on (too slow)"
_
"This horrible [camera] took 640x480 pictures, had no flash, 2 shutter speeds, a light filter, and came with a 2MB compact flash card...after this nightmare, I purchased a then just-released Olympus C2000 zoom -- first generation, no USB, and an 8mb smart media card."
_
"I still had lots of accessories - like case, wide angle and macro lenses, an good flash gun, remote control, several memory cards etc."
_
"Some other neat applications with the camera's features:- bright lens is great for indoor picture without flash."
_
"I have the bad photos from the Canon to proveit :-)5: I had great results with the slow flash mode, capturing a nicesunset, and then briefly flashing the subjects of the photo to have mycake and eat it."
_
"I do recommend a flash memory reader so you can avoid using the tiny USB cable that comes with the camera."
_
"I did a test shoot with and without flash, and the outcome was amazing."

Image:
"I am frustrated that I can't upload my images, but I am sure I will find out what I am doing wrong."
_
"It's hard to see the monitor image, outdoors, in sunlight."
_
"Also, the extra resolution is perfect for cropping to a small portion of the orginal photo for printing, within losing needed resolution for a quality print."
_
"Well, I just got my first 16 x 20 size photo back from Ofoto and it's gorgeous!"
_
"For an old camera, it takes great pics!"
_
"The images are very easy to down load, infact it's acts as a removable drive, so you can just drag images."
_
"I'have only tried automatic mode (sorry ,i'm learning the manual) and the pics i took are explendid, nice grey scale, definition, focus, magnnific and realistic colours......The manual is 200 pages, but you really learn what do you have."

"The only problem I've found is with some of the attachments and specialty lenses."

Photo

Photo:
"The big problem was downloading the photos onto the computer."
_
"These are the conclusions of my investigations upon the harsh critisizm that I got from my wife who is absolutely unsatisfied with her photos."
_
"There are inadequate directions on how to upload the photos to the computer."
_
"(Most of the photo hobbyists know how wives react on such...investments):Kodak DC260 is superior with portrait and photos up to 4-5 meters."
_
"With the noise reduction, the low light photos are great."
_
"I have never taken so many beautiful photos before this camera."
_
"And the remote control is a nice improvement on the timer photos of old."
_
"The pixel mapping function remaps bad pixels if they occur and the noise reduction is effective for photos taken at shutter speeds < 0.5 seconds."

Size

Size:
"I think the best compromise is to get a small digital camera with the most megapixels, then take the pictures with the 3x optical zoom, download the image to the computer and zoom crop the picture (on the computer) without concern of loosing detail (because of the high megapixels)."
_
"Also, the extra resolution is perfect for cropping to a small portion of the orginal photo for printing, within losing needed resolution for a quality print."
_
"I wanted to upgrade because I wanted two things the 4040 offers:1) be able to print super-large prints (like the 16 x 20 and the 20 x 30 size prints offered by Ofoto)2) be able to print reasonable size enlargements by digitally zooming into a digital photo."
_
"I'm not sure if the extra savings can be justified by others, but in my case, it gives me the resolution confidence to do the large size prints that I want."
_
"Well, I just got my first 16 x 20 size photo back from Ofoto and it's gorgeous!"
