3.18 megapixels (effective); 10x optical zoom/3x digital zoom; auto and manual focus; program and manual exposure; JPEG and TIFF file format; ISO range 100 - 400; 4 AA batteries; movie mode (no sound)
The Olympus C-740 Ultra Zoom offers a 10x optical zoom that should delight photographers frustrated by the limited zoom on other digital cameras. Packing a whopping 10x optical zoom lens (the equivalent of a 38 - 380mm film photography lens), this camera can capture long distance shots that would be impossible with other models. Also offering a range of manual controls and an easy-to-grip body, the C-740 should please a variety of photographers. For a little more money, the Olympus C-750 offers 4-megapixel resolution and the same 10x zoom.
