20 Most Recent Olympus Camedia C-2000 Zoom Digital Camera Questions & Answers


There are so many variables that effect your exposure. Batteries, ISO rating, shutter, aperture, etc. Remember your pictures are digital, and you should have a good graphics program to make adjustments (e.g. Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, Photo Deluxe, etc.). I suspect your pictures are under- exposed due to weak batteries from using the flash so much. The only batteries suitable are NiMHs. NiCad or Alkalines will not cut it.

Put the camera into play back mode, select the picture you want to delete with the jog dial, press the top button next to the viewfinder, select yes (the default value) and press OK.

The panorama feature cannot be copied, it is 'firmware' of sorts that is integrated into the card itself. Olympus does offer several types of 'special' firmware in their branded SmartMedia cards (I believe there was a special one for printing T-Shirts and Mugs and the like....don't recall exactly, but did have a special supplement when I bought my C-1400XL).

The panorama mode SmartMedia cards are special function cards sold only by Olympus. I had a 2mb card with this function with my C-820L, however, I found that the panorama software available from companies like LivePicture and others works much better (and is much easier to use), than trying to use the special function card to do the same thing. With the panorama software instead of card, you can use anyone's SmartMedia. Did you buy your C2000Z here in Europe? I'm interested to know what software (if any) was included. I bought mine in the States and brought it back; it included panorama software from Enroute Imaging called "QuickStitch". I haven't used it since I already have "PhotoVista" from Live Picture. The other reason I opted not to use the special function panorama card from Olympus is that it requires the LCD viewer to be on while shooting; as you probably are beginning to discover, the LCD eats batteries, so I avoid it at all possible costs to try and conserve them.

You must have the lens extended all the way or you get a halo effect as if your taking the picture through a tube. This might be interesting in some instances. I have the 1.4x for my 2000z and it works very well although it is a little cumbersome.

It does come with a Lithium Ion battery, "which is nice", however still no adapter.

Olympus Camedia... • Answered on Sep 06, 2005


I would be concerned. First, the C2000Z is a very precision device. It came with a 41mm lens cap. If the extended lens bothers you, get the CLA-1 adapter, and cap it with a 43mm lens cap. I personally would not buy a demo digital camera. It goes thru too many funky and un-caring hands, if you catch my drift. Lastly, go to the Olympus web site and download the latest software. Hope you make the right choice; as most times you still "get what you pay for".

I use Thumber to do it. It tells me everything I want to know - shutter > speed, F stop, ISO, zoom position, date and time down to the second, > plus some other things I don't remember. Thumber was freeware when > I downloaded it.

Always charge batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period. Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together. Make sure your rechargeable batteries are all good. One defect in a set is killing for the whole set Don't use barrettes from different sets or brands together. I had one brand good NiMH batteries and a very expensive charger from the same brand. The charger destroyed all my rechargeable (more than 60 now). When I first discovered the batteries were dropping out, I stopped using the charger, but it did not prevent all batteries to die in the following months. Every time on dropped out I had to change the set. I tried using up the others by grouping the ones with the same Ri, but not longer then a few months and I had a box full to trow away. Never use a quick charger, capable of charging them within an hour or faster. Us a charger that indicates the Ri is still low enough, so you can see what batteries are bad. Check you are using a charger for NiMH batteries. I would try another set (new) because buying Alkaline is also not cheap. I used 2700 mAh and later 2600 mAh rechargeable, all dead now. since a few weeks I'm now using 2300 mHh from another brand, costing 1/5 of the "best" I had before, and they are doing great. I won't charge them with the quick charger. Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in electronic devices. These batteries are only to be used in flash lights.

This 14 year old camera, does not have a zoom lens. It has a 5,5 mm lens, giving it a angle of view of about a 35 mm lens of a Full frame camera. However, you should be able to zoom digital 2 times. I can't find a manual, to help you on this, but the quality will be the same as cropping into a frame on your computer. So if you do put the pictures on a computer, you also can "zoom" in to the parts you want. Be aware a 1 megapixel camera, does not offer that much of detail.

Hi, any error messages?

Like many point&shoot cameras, the SZ-12 does not have manual focus. The closest you can come is to point the camera at the object your want in focus, press the shutter release button halfway, then frame the photo the way you want it and press the shutter release button the rest of the way.
