I have an Olympus C840L, it was brought directly from Japan. I think that in
the US the same cammera has a different model, I think it is the D340L.
It came with a serial cable. I download the pictures in Linux using gphoto
or some other software I got from freshmeat.
I don't have any complaints, it has worked fine, and I can download my
pictures in Linux, so it is perfect!
