    I have an older Olympus, a C760UZ (I think it was marketed as C765UZ in the US, but not sure). It was and still is, a magical little camera. Not especially attractive, and with a 1/2.5" sensor, it could shoot TIFF, had full manual control, and most excellent glass. I never did explore it thoroughly, but I'm seriously considering doing so.

    It would be nice to see shots from other older Olympus cameras here. This, for its time, was a really serious compact, and I know that there are others of the same ilk out there.

    Here's my first. This ship, the Pasha Bulker, was grounded on Nobbys Beach, Newcastle, Australia on June 8, 2007. It was all over the news, all over the world. Of all the photographs I have ever seen of that time, I still think mine is the best. And, its the best I think I've ever taken. Its the photo that persuaded me to take photography much more seriously than I had.

    Fabulous shot!
    Coincidentally probably my best ever image was taken with an Olympus 3040Z

    Posted on these forums before but relevant to this thread.

    That is a STUNNER!

    I've been resisting sending my little Oly away, and I still shoot with it at times, but not seriously. That is about to change.
