You've read about 4 million pixels. You've seen outstanding digital images. You've heard about auto-connecting USB. Now you can experience them all in one blockbuster of a digital camera that is the Olympus C-4040 Zoom. This state-of-the-art compact digital camera includes a 4.1-megapixel CCD and couples with Olympus's newly-developed lens, designed differently than a traditional film lens and allowing every pixel to be properly filled, to help you achieve amazingly detailed and brilliantly colorful photographic results. When you want to repeat these stunning results even in low-light situations, simply take advantage of the C-4040 Zoom's super bright 3x optical zoom lens and rest – assured your images will come out exceptionally crisp and clear.When it's time to print or e-mail those great pictures, just hook up the C-4040 Zoom to any computer with a USB port and current operating system and the computer will instantly recognize and connect it automatically for quick and easy downloading of images, without the need for additional software or drivers. It's easy to use. It takes great pictures. And it's digital. It's the CAMEDIA C-4040 Zoom… a camera that definitely lives up to the hype.

The camera is good. Its jpeg file has all information you took shot (every bit!!!). But you are unable to print any of them, including date and time, when you send for printing. You have to manually edit jpeg file to add basic things such as date and time. A very pitty fact for such good camera.
