Question about Olympus Camedia C-2020 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

How important you would rate the USB feature?

I am buying a digital camera. I can just stretch my budget to get an Olympus c2020z - this is the cheapest camera that has the features I want - manual focus/exposure and movie mode. One anoying problem however, is that it does not support USB connection. Just wondered how important you would rate the USB feature? Can anyone give a rough idea of how long it takes to transfer a full memeory card using the serial cable? Should re-think my choice because the 2020 doesnt have USB? - but as my budget cannot go any higher I would have to settle for autofocus or somthing like that

There you go then Nick. Not only a satisfactory answer but when you get it you'll find it a very satisfactory solution. Why worry about USB in camera - that's second-rate as a download compared with a USB reader - card direct to computer (to USB port) via the reader is about 10 times the speed of a camera USB to serial. By the way, you'll just LOVE the 2020 - especially when you shoot in low light with that f2 lens to help you. Set it up right. HQ at 1600x1200 will do you fine to start with and give you plenty of pics on a modest card (about 64 on a 32Meg). 'P' mode with AutoWB, Auto ISO, Auto-everything and just shoot away and have fun - great shots

Need cd-rom to down load photoes to computer

You can buy the Cd from Olympus on their website, but you should be able to import the files directly from your camera using the USB cable, using it just like an external drive. If you are using a memory card for storage, you can also use a card reader to import your files. The free Picasa software from Google will import images and also allow you to edit them.

Can't r read chinise how to change languege

I bought my C2020Z about 10 years ago, second hand and the language was in Japanese. No good to me, so I took it to a camera shop and the technician had to get a program from Olympus and he reprogrammed it for me to English. I never had a problem with it as everything was in English. From memory, it cost about AUD$100. Seeing I only paid $250 for the camera, I believed it was a good deal all round. I hope this answers your question. John

Digital camera

With this budget, you will not get a digital camera in India. You will need to spend at least Rs 7000 for a basic model. Prioritise on what features you need in the camera -- like zoom, resolution, features etc. and then decide on a max budget.
