Steve Sanders examines Olympus's 1.3 megapixel, fixed focal length, fixed focus digicam...
Our good friend Steve at Steve's Digicams has today posted his full review of the Olympus Camedia D-370 digital camera, an entry-level digicam with a price-tag of about $200 (street). Steve concludes:
"The Camedia D-370 is a small (pocket-sized) digital camera that offers a combination of good image quality with point-n-shoot ease of use. It doesn't have any advanced exposure modes but it does capture QuickTime movie clips. It's priced within reach of most people's budget and has a robust shot to shot speed (~2.5 secs) when compared to other 1.3 megapixel cameras. For more on the Olympus Camedia D-370, which was announced on June 5th and replaces the D-360 model, read Steve's full review.

Overall the image quality is good for a 1280 x 960 camera with a non-zoom lens. Outdoors the wide angle lens will "see" a lot of bright sky so it tends to underexpose foreground objects. The most annoying thing to me was the lack of a sequential numbering option for the filenames that it creates. Hwever, if you want a good, no fuss digicam that is capable of making 4x6" or 5x7" prints and fits in your pocket -- the D-370 may be just what you are looking for."
