If you're considering buying a digital camera for the first time, consider the following three items as necessary: 1. optical zoom 2. built-in flash (as in light, not memory) 3. highest possible resolution
This camera has two of the three. Technology is moving so rapidly that Olympus has introduced two newer models (D-2000 and D-2400) that are higher resolution. I guess that this will just be like my PC -- I replace the camera every three years.
It is easy to handle and the software that comes with it is good. Memory cards are inexpensive to purchase. There's an interesting accessory, a 1.45X lens attachment, that gives better optical zoom characteristics.
I recently had my Olympus D-610 smooshed by a horse trailer and replaced it with the D-620. There's no real differences.
The only negative: other reviewers are correct about there being NO WAY to force the flash to go off at night. Recently I had to turn on the patio light just to get enough light for the flash to work.

Bought the camera in Dec 1998 and, after several months of use, have found two problems. The camera will not allow you take night photographs even with the built in shutter adjustments; the shutter will simply not take the picture and allow you to decide whether it is useable or not. Secondly, the plug in cable from the camera to the PC is very sensitive (am on my third one)and at times I have to hold the input plug on the camera firmly during the download or it will stop the transfer. The upside...great pics and this camera takes standard close-up, telephoto or wide-angle lenses.

Sure, it has great optics. And you can't beat a SLR camera for composition. The smartmedia interfaces [pcmcia or usb] are blazingly fast. Ample resolution to print a 4x6 photo.
Think of it as the digital equivalent to a Polaroid camera. Instant review of your shots [essential at events such as reunions!] and enough features to keep you interested until it comes time to get the next great thing.
As with any other piece of technology, I expect it to be rugged -- it is. The zoom is WITHIN the camera, not outside, so you can't hurt its gears by dropping it. It has screw threads up front and therefore will take common accessories.
It is as easy to use, it handles as well and it works just like their IS line of film cameras.
This is the first digital camera I've felt confident enough in to replace film for most social situations.

I remember when my office bought this camera back in 1998 for three times the price. I thought it was a great camera then, but even now it's fabulous. I love being able to focus in on small objects or use the wide angle to get the big picture. And with the extra 8 megs of smart media, it's like carting around three more rolls of film. The batteries only take three hours to recharge and they last. All in all, it's everything I wanted and more.

Verified Purchase
This is my first digital camera and I am very impressed! The picture quality is incredible. I compared images online with several more expensive models and the D620 came out on top. The camera is easy to use and fast, only a tiny delay between shots. I do wish the low-light capability was better. You can't focus or shoot below a certain light level. The other positives far outweigh this shortcoming however.

I have had them all, 35mm, point and shoot, hasselblad and all the lenses. I am not ready to give the rest up, they all have their place, but the Olympus and the smart media with a floppy disk adapter have taken me to a new level. It all works great, probably better in day than night, but great.

I bought my Olympus D-620L four years ago, in November of 1999, just about the time that digital cameras were beginning to attract the interest of novice camera users. My camera has been a workhorse since then, helping me capture excellent photos for use on Ebay as well as in some brochures I've produced for small businesses. My friends have newer and fancier models, but my photos turn out as well as theirs do, and seem far easier to shoot. Unfortunately, last week my beloved old D-620L developed a problem when using the built-in flash. The flash doesn't flash until a second or so after the photo has been taken, so unless I use the camera outdoors or with good indoor lighting, the photos are too dark to use. I returned the camera to Olympus for repair, knowing that an out-of-warranty fix was probably going to be pricey. Well, I just got the estimate to fix it: $262.00. I'm guessing that's a standard fee that Olympus charges for any repair because before I mailed in the camera, someone I spoke to in the Olympus customer service department said that I'd probably be looking at "$262.00 to fix any problem." Still, I sent the camera to Olympus, hoping that the repair would be less than the estimate. It wasn't, so I'm having the camera returned without having the repair done. It doesn't make sense to put that kind of money into a camera that's 4 years old, even though I don't want to buy a new camera at this point. So, my old D-620L will be used for outdoor shots only until I make the move to buy another digital camera. I don't need a 3, 4, or 5 megapixel camera, movie capabilities, or many of the other bells and whistles that are standard on most digital cameras today.Read more ›
