My first Digital Olympus

Just found the warranty doc for my first Olympus Digital camera... It was the C-2100UZ loved it but nowadays so outdated. What was your first one?

Re: My first Digital Olympus

Mine was the C-2020. Liked it so much I persuaded work to make it the camera of choice when departments were buying their own.

Then got the C-3030, which I didn't like as much for some reason, so changed to the C-2100UZ.

After that, moved to the E-10, and after that onto Canon DSLRs for a while before seeing the light and losing the weight to go back to Olympus.

In fact, this was taken with the C2020 on Staffa:

Re: My first Digital Olympus

Camedia C-350. Still got it, it still works, tho it doesn't see a lot of use . The main problem with it is the rechargeable AA batteries don't like the cold and it eats the alkaline alternatives. The PQ was pretty good in super fine mode though.

I used a borrowed E-300 for a while and I'm glad I shot in raw because modern raw processing does a much better job than what was available when I first got it.

Re: My first Digital Olympus

My first Olympus digital was the E-1, which I still use daily, closely followed by an E-300 which died recently after 56,949 actuations.

My first digital, however, was a Minolta Dimage 7, which I gave to a friends daughter and she still uses.

Re: My first Digital Olympus

An E-1 which I sometimes wish I'd kept. I was never impressed with my samples of the 14-54 and 50-200 so sold them with the E-1 after getting an E-410 and the 2 kit lenses. I stopped shooting film with the arrival of the E-410.

Re: My first Digital Olympus

First Olympus was an E510 which met its end when I fell when going down a rocky track in the rain.

First digital camera was a Coolpix 4500 with a neat swivelling body design. Still got it somewhere.

I too had an E-1 a good few years ago.. I thought the reproduction of reds were far better than that of any Olympus since...
