Newcomers to the world of digital zoom photography find the Olympus C350 an attractive option. The 3x optical zoom is powerful enough to frame up distant subjects with complete clarity, but the 3.5x digital zoom addition provides an extra kick should the optical fall short. The C350 minimizes shake at longer focal lengths, which are more susceptible to camera "noise."

Seasoned photographers also see the value in an Olympus C350. There are several pre-set white-balance modes and scene settings that incorporate portrait and landscape photography, night-time shooting, and other environmental factors such as available light and distance. More artistic types appreciate the black-and-white-to-color conversion option as well as sepia tinting for a classic look.

In the world of UK digital cameras there are a wealth of products that effectively provide the same capabilities. But the C350 stands out with its foreign language menus, its 1.8" LCD, and other unique attributes. Shutter speeds are as fast as 1/1000 of a second, which is perfect for fast-moving subjects such as cars, racehorses, or other animals.

Like the Olympus 750, the 350 is lightweight enough to carry with you yet sturdy enough to withstand everyday abuse. A USB port allows you to transfer images easily to your PC or wireless device, no matter the size or the compression. And as with other Olympus models, you can switch back and forth between fully automated features and manual settings, depending on how much work you want to do yourself and the amount of control you're willing to relinquish when determining your settings.
