As part of our Olympus Digital Camera review we compare the Sony Mavica........ &FOTOgraphic presents
Which is best for you?
By now youíve probably already read our account of the Olympus
D-600L. We were very fortunate to have both the Olympus and the Mavica at the
same time so we could really compare both the use and the results of both cameras.
All is not well...
As you can see by the samples at right, the Mavica fails the sharpness test as
well. The Olympus obviously did a better job with detail on this outdoor shot. (Both
shot at the same location, at the same resolution setting!) The Olympus captures
both color and detail far better.
Mavica for home, hobby or personal use, Olympus for professional, task oriented
or studio work. For most picture taking or snapshot photography the Mavica is the
one to get. It will even do well for most website work. But if your work is a bit
more demanding, get the Olympus instead. Although itís more clumsy to work with,
and eats batteries quickly, the Olympus does very well for most low to moderate publishing
work and performs very well in the studio.
