Olympus C-2100

Wed Sep 05, 2001 4:44 pm

Hi,
I am looking at the OLYMPUS C-2100 as I can get a good price on it, it sounds good but I am not as good at digital cameras as a lot of you guys are

So, is this a good camera? are the pictures from it decent?

Thnaks for any info

LGW

Hi Ben,

I've had this camera for just over a month now. Took me a while to get used to it but I'm very happy with it now. Here are some samples.

If I understand correctly, the zoom is equivalent to 38-380 mm (10x). That kind of zoom is phenomenal in my opinion for a digital camera. I have tried the 2100 in a store, and liked it very much. After trying out a Canon Pro90 IS, I opted for that, but mainly because the Pro90 uses compactflash which I prefer and a few other features. But basically they are very similar cameras with reportedly the same lens, and if they are as similar as I think, you will love the Olympus 2100. Incidently the 2100 it is usually much cheaper than the Pro90 as well.

I posted a bunch of my pictures from the Pro90 in a thread recently with the name Pro90 in the topic line. Supposedly the 2100 is a little quicker with the autofocus and lag between shots is shorter (ie faster). The 2100 is 2.1 megapixels, and the Pro90 is 2.6 megapixels, which is not really a huge difference.

Hope that helps more than it confuses!

Hi Ken,

I remember checking out the Pro90 IS too and really had a hard time deciding between these two cameras. I did heaps of research on both models and decided with the Olympus in the end because I preferred the design.

Remember Ben, do heaps of research and try them all out and ask to see the print output of the cameras when you're in the store.

Cheers,
Jason Milligan

I purchased this camera early last month and I like it alot. My photos on this site from August till now have all been shot with this camera. A few weeks ago I captured some nice approach shots. I submitted these shots a few days ago and they are pending approval. Even if they don't make the cut - I am very satisfied with this camera. It is a very good value.

One question, where on the camera is the zoom function?
