Battery

Battery:
"Ok so I finally got batteries and charger on my own only to find the battery cover on the camera is broken!"
_
"Twice I have had it die right in the middle of a photo (one of the photos can't be replaced) and good luck getting the lens to retract when the batteries die."
_
"The tension of the batteries broke a little plastic piece on the battery door."
_
"We paid about $500 for this camera about two years ago and the battery casing broke on it."
_
"ALSO, I had the exact same experience as another reviewer: the tiny little FLIMSY clips that hold the battery door closed have broken and Olympus expects me to pay $150 to get it fixed."
_
"My camera arrived today and inludes the recommended batteries and a charger, so save yourself the cost of purchasing them separately."
_

Focus

Focus:
"(especially after you learn how to use all the settings) At first I was disappointed with the low light focusing, but after doing some research it seems that most digital cameras suffer from the same problem."
_
"The solution with the C-750's low light focusing problem is LEARNING HOW TO USE THE MANUAL FOCUS feature, which is very easy to use."
_
"It often fails to focus in such conditions especially in high zoom."
_
"The one problem with the camera is low light focus (By low light I mean a standard size room with just one 60W bulb)."
_
"The solution in low light could be:a) Take photos in full wide angleb) If that fails try switching to manual focus."
_
"The solution with the C-750's low light focusing problem is LEARNING HOW TO USE THE MANUAL FOCUS feature, which is very easy to use."
_
"But I am not going to complain since it automatically adjusts the focus and contrast fairly well for framing the shot."

Image

Image:
"As in, when you're looking through the thing to take a picture, you don't see a clear image of what you're taking until after you take the picture."
_
"Twice I have had it die right in the middle of a photo (one of the photos can't be replaced) and good luck getting the lens to retract when the batteries die."
_
"I'm not a good judge of image quality, as I use digital primarily for Web posts."
_
"I purchased several Olympus and Canon for the size (w bigger LCD) but all have terrible noisy image quality."
_
"Drawbacks - lag time before the image is taken."
_
"In point of fact, zooming on any camera at 10X without a tripod or image stabilization is extremely challenging."
_
"She was amazed at C-750's image quality when she was testing comparing her Canon EOS 30D + $1K+ lens."
_
"I love the photo quality (I get compliments all the time!"
_
"PROS:Great picsBattery life is ok (always have charged spares)10X zoom (be sure to use your tripod)very easy to useGreat macro featuresCONS:I spend to much time taking pictuesCost of accesoriesLack of image stabilization1 1000 max shutter speedThis is a great all around camera."

_
"The one problem with the camera is low light focus (By low light I mean a standard size room with just one 60W bulb)."
_
"On the down side, the camera doesn't focus very well in low light, and the manual focus is obscure and hard to use."
_
"In an indoor shot, this thing sees light unavailable to the naked eye."
_
"It doesn't function too well in low light conditions (in-doors)But the 10x zoom really makes up for all this."
_
"I just tried to take pictures at a concert (good range, bright stage lights) and I got a very sharp photo of a microphone."
_
"I just thought I would shed some light on this model, in addition to the well deserved, 5 star reviews."
_
"So consequently, I turn off the flash, take interior shots using only the normal light of the room, and get shots that are nicely lit, warm natural skin tones, great battery life, and non blurry shots."
_
"The result was worth waiting for, as a much faster system now exists that allows the camera to take better advantage of low light and fast action scenes."

_

Zoom

Zoom:
"If you really want that 10x zoom you might be able to live with some of the problems mentioned above."
_
"But this is a problem with most 10X zoom cameras out there."
_
"It often fails to focus in such conditions especially in high zoom."
_
"I looked forward to this camera a lot (not helped by a large number of companies selling it long before they had stock, and chose it because of (1) the zoom (equivalent to c. 380mm on an SLR), (2) the AA batteries and (3) the external hotshoe (which i have never used...).It is a nice, compact camera with excellent zoom, and really high quality pics."
_
"Whether that system (present on my Olympus 2100 & far from perfect) is in the works on a 760 model I cannot say, but if you're in the market for a relatively compact digicam with a very long zoom, you can hardly go wrong with any of the 700 series by Olympus."
_
"It doesn't function too well in low light conditions (in-doors)But the 10x zoom really makes up for all this."
_
"I got this camera because of the 10X optical zoom and the good reviews."
_
"If you really want that 10x zoom you might be able to live with some of the problems mentioned above."
_
"The 10x zoom lens makes clear pictures."
_
"The optical zoom is a whopping 10X, but you can also use the digital zoom to get as close as 40X... and the quality is actually pretty good for that much digital scaling."
_
"The zoom of this camera is great."
