Whenever I'm talking about digital cameras and the name Olympus comes up, I like to stop for a moment and mention my respect for this company. Olympus is one of the best digital camera manufacturers in the world. Their products are always of the highest quality and their service is hard to beat. I've never had a problem with an Olympus and if I did, I know their excellent customer service staff would be right there to help.

Okay, now on to the particulars of the C725. This model is in Olympus's three megapixel family of cameras. This is middle of the road for digital cameras, and the C725 really does take some great photographs. It is one of the most affordable three megapixel digital cameras around today.

Olympus C725 Ultra Zoom

What really sets this camera apart is its zoom capability. It is what is referred to as an Ultra Zoom camera. It is, in fact, the Ultra Zoom model I recommend for first time camera buyers. I like it because it is so easy to use. Switching between picture settings is a snap. My favorite setting is the Night Scene mode. Taking good pictures after dark is a huge challenge in photography, and the Olympus C725 with Night Scene is a perfect solution to the problem.

If you buy from the manufacturer or from a good discount website, the C725 comes with a USB cable so you can easily transfer your pictures to a PC or laptop. This is a nice bonus because the C725's memory card is only 16 MB. You can, of course, upgrade to a card with more memory at any time.
