This is a great camera for a beginner as well as an expert. The manula settings take great photos, but you also have the full manual control for experts. You also canot beat the 10x Optical Zoom and image stabilization! I used to write for the Olymopus tech support database and this was always my favorite that I would take everywhere. You may see on my profile some of the photos I've taken with the C-2100

Although this is an old camera and only 2 MP, it takes excellent images handheld with the image stabilization and Carl Zeiss lens. I can interpolate pixels and have had large images (24x36) printed and they are very sharp and come out beautifully. I'm giving this camera to my 9 y/o grandson who has outgrown the Fuji that I gave him a couple of years ago.

I love this camera. It takes great shots and has a 10x optical zoom. So I can get as close as I want. It takes standard double A batteries (I use re-chargeable batteries), and has image stablization on it to reduce camera shake. What I don't like is that when you record video you get a clicking sound in the background. I was told that Olympus couldn't get rid of that sound.

When it was new, the Olympus C2100UZ offered great zoom (38-380) optical with Canon Image Stabilized glass for a great price. With only 2.1mp, its starting to show its age.

I have owned at least 5 of these cameras - I kept going back to it, after I "thought" I had a better camera - but now it's relegated to my memories, as it's just a little too 'outdated' with it's smaller pixel size.

I've used this camera through Alaska the Yukon and Northwest Territories of Canada and in the winter-spring of 2004 this camera accompanied me through Russia and Siberia. The camera continues to travel with me when my 6.2
MP Canon D model stays home (weight considerations mostly). The camera operated A-OK (normal precautions) all the way down to -66 degrees F. At the tail end of the Russian trip the C-2100 was dropped and I like the camera well enough that I paid the relatively stiff Olympus price to have it repaired. I wished Olympus had up-dated this model to 4 MP with the motion suppressor. I don't know that it has an equal within $1,000 of what I paid for it in 1999 ($500).

I like... the 10x Zoom the image stabilization the lcd viewfinder I don't like... the way it hangs around my neck. It's back-heavy so the lens flips up and sticks out. I wish... It had a 1.8 lens instead of 2.8 It had a hot-shoe

My Digital Olympus Camedia C-2100 Ultra Zoom is the most favorite camera I have own thus far. It is awesome. I recieved it as an anniversary gift and have been pleased with it ever since. It is a 2.1 megapixel with a 10X optical zoom with stablizer. Clear screen for picture preview, nice size. It takes great macro shots and it also is great when taking pictures while traveling in the car. I am amazed at how well photo's come out while taking them from a moving vehicle. Also take great night photos. I wish the megapixels were higher although it is a great camera for as old as it is. It is light and easy to use and to understand. Great digital camera.

I tested several other digicams before selecting the Olumpus C-2100UZ & none compared with it. I've had it for nearly 3 yrs. now & have made thousands of exceptional photos with it. Many of those photos were used in greeting card design & the card recipients have been amazed at the detail with a 2.11 mp camera. I've used it with an HP Pll00 printer until recently when I purchased a Canon i9900 printer. When I can find an 8 mp camera with ultra zoom optical, ease of use & menus that are as easy to navigate as the 2100UZ for under $1,000 I'll buy it. Until then, I'll keep enjoying every moment with my 2100UZ!

This is a really great camera (especially when I bought it in 2000). The things I really like about it are its excellent optics, 10x optical zoom, macro capabilities, and image stabilizer (which I haven't been able to find in combination since). It also offers a range of manual and automatic modes that allow you to take shots of almost anything in any lighting situation. I use it all the time for great wildlife shots. My only complaint about this camera is that it is only 2.1 megapixels and that Tiff pictures take so long to download to the card. I recently got an Olympus 1.7x Teleconversion lens which brings my total zooming power to 17x optical. This is great, especially in bright light. Though a good lens, it does reduce contrast (in low light especially) and reduce DOF, which can cause problems or cool effects depending on how you work it.

I love the 10 power optical zoom. It gives clarity while letting you reach out and touch something. The basic operation is easy to learn, while there are still advanced features I'm learning all the time. The only thing I don't like is the size. It is larger than most digital cameras.

Even with just 2.11mp, the Olympus C-2100UZ (aka the UZI!) is incredible. I don't know why Olympus didn't proceed to make higher megapixel models of this camera. I know just about every owner of an UZI would stick with Olympus if they did. The image-stabilization (IS) is almost flawless; I regularly took hand-held shots at 1/8 second and slower with it. The menus are fairly easy to navigate, and important features like Flash Mode, Macro and Light Metering are changed via external buttons (where ALL cameras should have them). My only dislike with the camera is the sound quality on movie mode. There is a lot of clicking and whirring resulting from the zoom, autofocus, and IS working in the lens. I did not buy it to make movies, however, so it wasn't a big concern. Images taken with this camera were blown up to very large banners by a petfood company which bought rights to four of my photos. I was amazed that they were able to do this with "only" a 2.11mp image, sophisticated software or not. I just got a Minolta DiMAGE A1 a couple months ago for my primary use, but we kept the UZI for my husband. It's a great camera.

Look through viewfinder makes the camera act and feel like an SLR with an optional 1x2 view screen. Optical zoom is coupled with a digital zoom which can be disabled.

Great camera. Granted, it is only 2.1MP, but the 10x optical is clear and the image stabilized lens works great! I had mine until I upgraded to the Minolta A1. At which point, I gave the 2100 to a friend.

The camera captures true colors completely. The camera is easy to use, and adjusts quickly to 'special' circumstances.

Love the 10X stabilized zoom lens on the C-2100UZ, but wish it was more than 2.1 MP.

Excellent Camera! It has many features that make it feel and act like a SLR.The only frustrating thing is the lag between multi shots as it downloads onto the card, where as a SLR is instant.These cameras are very collectable because of their many features especially the 10x optical zoom with image stabilizer.To see all the features and a thorough test-comparison of this as well as most other digital cameras go to this website-www.imaging-resource.com

Love the zoom! Some artifacts under certain conditions, but a very nice camera. Easy to get and mount filters.

10x optical with image stabilisation, as well as full manual capability. Perfect for the serious hobbyist.

Nice camera and lots of bells and whistles.Takes nice pics and easy to use. Leaves alittle to be desired in very low light situations haveing to shoot blind if there is no external lighting.

Serves an average person well, however, being my first digital camera, and now with newer and faster models, thinking of an upgrade in the near future.

I love this camera and just wished it came with 5 MP, the exact same camera because I am limited to 2.1MP - I use it mainly for infrared photography which I absolutely love to do. It is pretty good also for sports or action shots. The 10X zoom is its greatest appeal. Not terrific for macro shots.

Good but a little "out of date" digital camera. Somehow slow time between pressing button and actually firing. The great thing about it is that viewfinder is a SLR type so there's no problems with parallax and it is very useful if you want to save batteries and not turn on big LCD screen. Generally, good digital camera.

Very satified with this 2.1. Even makes nice 8 x 10's in bright light pics. Waiting for an affordable digital SLR.

I love this camera! Received it approximately 1-1/2 yrs. ago for Christmas. I am still learning how to use all of its features, but I am constantly amazed by the quality of pictures taken with it. I love the zoom on it. It seems to work well in most every situation, low light, daylight, even at night!

This is a great camera for almost anyone. the controls are easy to usse, and the manual is very clear. The 10X optical zoom is great and easy to use, and with the macro you can take photos of the smallest things.

love the camera's handling, the 10x zoom with image stabilization, the electronic viewfinder is fine. althought picture quality is very good, with good color balance and saturation, 2.1 megapixels really is best for 5x7 prints. With a good, uncropped print I can sometimes get a decent 8x10, but its the exception.

WONDERFUL CAMERA! You can do practically anything with this camera. The 10x Optical zoom + image stab allows great action shots and max telephoto without tripod or blur. It makes even a beginner look good. Excellent buys refurb on half.com. Don't let the 2 megapix discourage you. If you normally fill your frames and don't do a lot of crop & enlarge with photoshop, etc., you can get excellent 12 X 18 or even 16 X 22's with this baby. A little more bulky than some but worth it.

If you can find one, buy it! Not made anymore, but on e-bay frequently. With 10 x optical zoom, and image stabilization, it is a technological marvel to me.... Great for sports/action photography, and it lets you get close to wildlife that would otherwise get away.

Excellent camera, very much like a good 35mm. While it is easy to use in the "P"rogram mode, you can tinker with shutter and/or aperture priorities. It takes sharp closeups, good sunny-day photos, and is great at your kid's soccer game with all the action.
