In order to achieve bold effects without sacrificing ease of use, the Camedia 350Z provides a number of digital editing functions. Shots can be changed to sepia or black and white photos, and a convenient resizing option allows reduction of the data's file size. The image rotation feature is particularly useful when viewing photos originally taken in the portrait format, on a TV. To further enhance creative possibilities and practicality for users, the camera also includes: the recording of 15 frame-per-second movie clips in the QuickTime Motion-JPEG format, a panorama and 2-in-1 shooting function, as well as a built-in flash with four flash modes. For storing the data, this model uses the ultra-compact storage medium xD-Picture Card, and a 16 MB card is supplied with the camera.

Olympus Reviews

Olympus is a long-time camera manufacturer, but lately they've been offering innovative, compact imaging options that are well worth a look. While Olympus doesn't have a camera in every category like Nikon or Sony, their focus on the cameras they offer shows.

Olympus' main, and best, cameras are their mirrorless line. The OM-D line offers mirrorless cameras that rival professional results while their PEN options offer the most portability and affordability. Most of their mirrorless cameras have simple, retro designs that work really well. Their kit lenses are often a bit higher quality than most. The Olympus mirrorless cameras we've been able to test have shown excellent image quality and usability.

While most of Olympus' focus seems to be on their excellent mirrorless line, we haven't been disappointed with any of their compacts we've put through our tests either. The TG-3 and TG-4 are among the best waterproof compacts on the market. And when we put the super zoom SP-100 to the test, we were quite happy with the image quality and performance.

Olympus may not have a camera in each and every category, but they've really put a lot into their existing cameras, making them excellent options.
