    Default Olympus C700UZ

    Hi, does anyone here own a Olympus C700UZ?

    Is the chromatic abr problem as bad as it said to be?

    Is there anyway to minimise or correct that problem?

    Kindly advise.

    Thank you.

    It is not that bad. Acceptable.

    Is there anyway to minimise or correct that problem?
    Can use Photoshop to get rid of it. Very effective.

    Yes, it is not that serious. Take a look at my gallery below and see if CA is obvious to you.

    it's only very obvious when u have very contrasty lighting. e.g. shooting trees against bright sky. Most of the time post processing with Photoshop will be able to get rid of it.

    Hi. Thank you for sharing yoru galleries, for both of you.

    I would just like to enquire if it's possible for an amatuer like myself to fully ultilize the camera and learn how to use it.

    I am an utter beginner, using only the AF functions for SLRs and auto cameras. No other experience beyond that....

    So.. well, woudl it be a suitable camera for me?

    Yes of course. The camera has point & shoot capabilities in Auto mode for beginners. You can slowly advance to manual settings in future when the need or interest arise.

    If size is not an issue, don't forget to look at C2100.

    Sadly, the super-promo for C-2100uz is over liao...I'm one of the last few who managed to get it.....

    But you can always try to squeeze the retailer to incl. GST + throw in free UV filter to protect the lens....

    Yes, C-2100uz can use SM cards up till the max cap available in the mkt i.e. 128MB.
