The Olympus Camedia D-380 is a 2 megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera. It is also known as the Camedia C-120. It's manufactured in China for Olympus and introduced in 2002[1].

It has a rigid body, with a sliding front panel covering the lens and acting as the on/off switch. Pressing the "monitor" button when the camera is closed activates the viewing mode. The lens is fixed focus, 0.6m-infinity with a close-up switch for 0.25-0.6m. There is a 5x (low-res) or 2.5x (hi-res) digital zoom, a panorama mode for lining up successive pictures, a "self-portrait" mode, and a "2 in 1" feature which takes two portrait-format images and combines them into one landscape frame. Quicktime movies and sequential pictures are also available. Image framing can be done with the optical viewfinder, or the LCD panel on the rear. Images can be uploaded via a USB connection, hidden under a rubbery panel, which also covers the external power input, on the users left. The SmartMedia card lives under a door at the opposite end, and the batteries are inserted into the base.
