Entry-level 1.3 megapixel digicam 'quick-review' now online...
After a round of fairly high-end pro-oriented products (the Nikon scanners, Epson 1280 printer), it's almost a relief to lay hands on a simple point & shoot for a change! The Olympus D-370 is a nice little 1.3 megapixel camera with limited adjustments but pretty decent image quality. Probably the biggest news with it is that it's the first digicam we've seen that can actually operate fairly happily from standard alkaline AA cells.
While we still *strongly* recommend rechargeable NiMH cells and a good charger (see our review of the Maha C-204F published on Friday), it's nice that garden-variety AAs are a viable backup solution for the D-370 on trips, etc. Read the review for all the details, and when you're done, get a second opinion from our friends at Steve's Digicams...
