Olympus D-540 Zoom Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 5.83 (out of 10)
The D-540 Zoom is something of a new design externally, but has basic features common to most newer D-series models. The D-540 is missing a key component included in almost all digital cameras these days though, namely ISO control. Still, the camera offers a nice array of options, with four preset scene modes and the same white balance and exposure compensation adjustments. With a suggested retail price of $199 and an average street price of $170 or so as of this writing in early July, 2004, the D-540 Zoom is a good digicam at a great price.

The Olympus Camedia C-310Zoom (Same as D-540z in the U.S.) is positioned towards the bottom of the range in what Olympus call their "Easy" category. It has a 3.2-megapixel CCD and a 3x optical zoom that is equivalent to a 38-114mm lens on a 35mm format camera. The lens has a respectable aperture range of f2.9 at the widest setting of 35mm and f5.0 at the longest setting of 114mm. The shutter speed range is 2 - 1/2000th second.

The Olympus Camedia D-540 has seven shooting modes, 3x optical zoom, the capacity for direct printing, and a nicely sized 1/3.7-inch, 3.2-effective-MP CCD. The D-540 records still images at three different resolution settings, and videos in two formats at a rate of 15 frames per second. It’s neither overly large nor bulky, and if the real-image viewfinder is too small, it is compensated for by the ample 1.8-inch LCD. This camera retails online for around $154.95 (USD).
