Hi all,

I've narrowed my choiced down to these 2 cameras both at ard the same price. While I really like C2100's IS and better image quality (I feel), I want C700's portability. So its a really tough one.

To C700 owners, if given a second chance would you choose C2100?

To C2100 owners, vice versa. Would you?

And is C2100 really better in terms of image quality or is it just me?

*Headache...headache..*:confused:

C700uz is light and compact. Trade off is No IS.
C2100uz is quite heavy and bulky. But got IS.

Both have excellent 10x zoom ability.

Maybe you can check out dpreview.com and see the comparison between C700uz and C2100uz.

We have make our choices here ,and we all have some points in mind .

I know that my camera called big ,and i like it big .
No i will never get one C 700 .

Image quality !!
Yes in depth ,the C2100 does have a better image quality ,as the CCD that is used is larger .
About Zoom , yes the C 2100 have a bit stronger than the C700,and the diference is like : C700 9.3X -C2100 10X ( this tests have be made in praxis ) .
The C 2100 can take easely any extra accesories as large telephoto lens .
Night assist light , and better sensivity in the low light ,specialy in the viewfinder .
Plus remote control .
Now before my words start the World War 3 , i will say , that some people they do not need the C 2100 , well thanks to Olympus we have here two choices .
Just make your own .

Don't get the c700. Its useless at night. The lcd screen also sucks big time. Its got no IS so at full zoom in daylight u need a tripod. Forget portability because its still a large camera that u can't put in ur pocket. Hope I'm making myself clear. My colleague owns and I borrowed it and this is my honest opinion. I'm glad I own a 2100. If you want I could show you some of the shots taken with the c700 at night and then I can show u the equivalent taken with 2100.

Thanks all for your feedback. Klause, your comment say like never say like dat leh..heh... :D Syncmaster, thanks for the info. Been wanting to confirm the zoom x part as I noticed the difference in focal length (mm) on both lens. I am dubious of the claim made in DC resource that both uses the same lens.

maddog, yes please. Would most appreciate it. :)

I'll still stick wif the C-2100UZ if I got a chance to select again.....the bulkiness (not much in the 1st place) is gone once u got used to it and I simply luv the IS. :D

Thanks Keito :)

maddog, I'm feel sorry about your bad experiences with the C700UZ, but I think it is a fine camera. Not a top class one of course, but one dat deserves quite a bit of credit. Btw, zhapchit, azone and I have agreed before that at full zoom in daylight, we never really need tripods for sharp pics. And you should see azone's nightshots...excellent.

Yes the photos are excellent. How much post processing in PS was done? Besides auto-level, any sharpening, saturation etc done?

Even with the ring adapter mounted on the C700UZ, it's still very much smaller then the Uzi.

Although I have to agree that the Uzi have a better grip...

Given another chance.....I'd buy 2 C700UZ! One dedicated to shooting IR :gbounce:

Anyway, I'm not here to promote c700 over c2100. Yes, post pocessing in PS was done - level-adjusting(if necessary), some sharpening, dats all. Btw, just want to add... if a photo taken was really really lousy and suxy (like maddog described), then however much post posessing done will not be able to cover up. And mind you, most of the night pics in my gallery were taken before the hotpixel patch. And trust me, it is much much better now after the patch. And to reiterate, when taking night shots, IS or no IS makes no difference at all. The only difference is a tripod. Well, unless you're sniper-trained like kamwai! :D

Anyway, tonic, c2100 or c700, whichever you choose, just go shoot and post some pics for us to see! ;)
