Olympus C370Z: No Audio In Movie Mode
(Islamabad, ICT, Pakistan)
I have been using "The Olympus C370Z" for about 2 years now. It is a 3.2 megapixel Point and shoot camera. I bought this camera from Pakistan for PKR9900.($122)
When I bought this camera, it was the best in its class..
The photo quality still has no parallel in the 3.2 megapixel range.
The Olympus C370Z camera is just wonderful in sunlight but does not take very awesome photos indoors.
Its size is a plus factor..It can slip into any pocket
The XENON flash gives an edge in low light photography
It very rarely gets any red-eyes.
I use this camera for all my science projects and during that, I have to take close-ups of a lot of things. That's when I got to know that the closeup mode of this camera is simply mind-blowing
The results are amazing..
Although the resolution is just 3.2 Megapixels, which is nothing as copmared to the ones available in the market nowadays, but the photo quality can be easily compared to any expensive camera.
It can freeze fast moving objects for sharp images
One thing that I miss in the Olympus C370Z digital camera is that it doesn't seem to have an Image Stabilizer. The photos taken indoors or in low lightning have to be taken with a *VERY* steady hand or by using a tripod..OTherwise the photo is a blurred image.
One more thing that this camera lacks is that it does not have audio recording in its "Movie" mode.
