Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom Camera

 

It would be easy to classify the Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom as a simple case of keeping up with the Joneses. A near twin to the older C-5060 that it replaces, the C-7070's bump in resolution from the now pedestrian 5 megapixels up to a more desirable 7.1...

Long battery life High image quality

Lens could be faster

The focal length of the camera remains unchanged. The 4X optical zoom starts at the 35mm equivalent of 27mm--ideal for interior and landscape shooting. The f-stop range, however, is a little better on the newer model: f2.8 to f11 versus f2.8 to f8....

Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom

 

Olympus boosts its rugged, wide-angle digital camera to 7 megapixels.

Though image quality is not quite what you'd expect, the C-7070 is still one of the most powerful and flexible advanced digital cameras available.

Olympus Wide Zoom review

 

Olympus Wide Zoom

Full manual controls; wide-angle lens with excellent macro capabilities; excellent battery life.

Undistinguished image quality; excessive shutter lag in dim light.

Enthusiasts will enjoy the rich set of control options but will find some aspects of the camera disappointing.

Olympus Camedia C-7070 Wide Zoom

 

The 7.1-megapixel Olympus C-7070 is a solid, sturdy, metal-bodied camera that provides enthusiasts with a number of powerful features.

Wide-angle lens. Multiple histogram modes. Solid construction. Good overall image quality.

LCD swivels vertically up above the optical viewfinder, which feels a bit awkward. The lens (4X) should have a longer zoom. Slow boot time.

Olympus C-7070 Zoom review

 

Olympus' leading digital compact cameras are the Olympus C5060 Wide Zoom and the C8080 Wide Zoom. Beginning of 2005 the Olympus Camedia C7070 Wide Zoom joined in, and this camera may be looked upon as the successor of the Olympus C5060. The cameras...

The Olympus Camedia C7070 Wide Zoom definitely has professional ambitions. It features a sturdy and beautiful housing, a unique dual auto focus system and more than sufficient settings to meet the requirements of the demanding photographer. The...

Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom

 

I considered the C-5060WZ one of my favorite cameras back in its day. How does this latest model perform? Find out now in our review

Wide-angle 4X zoom lens ; Very good photo quality, though I'd adjust some settings (see below) ; Built like a tank (with one exception) ; Full manual controls ; Flip-up, rotating LCD display; good low light visibility ; Not one, but two live histograms...

Color saturation and sharpness a little too low at default settings ; Movie clips limited to 20 secs at highest quality setting ; Cheap plastic door over memory card slot ; Low light focusing should be better ; Unimpressive continuous shooting mode ;...

I really enjoyed using the C-7070WZ and it gets my recommendation. If you take a lot of photos that need that wide-angle lens, it's definitely worth your consideration.

Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom

 

The 7-megapixel Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom, with its namesake wide-angle lens, abundance of features, and great picture quality, has a lot to offer the enthusiast who's a few dollars short of the price of a digital SLR.

Excellent color ; wide lens ; excellent ergonomics and build quality ; dual control panels ; dual histograms ; dual memory slots ; hot shoe ; wide range of accessories available

Long write times for Raw files ; flimsy lens cap ; audio must be disabled to use optical zoom in movie mode

The magnesium-alloy body has a reassuringly rugged feel, and the rubberized grip and contoured thumbrest make it a pleasure to hold. The 1.8-inch swiveling LCD is great for taking shots at odd angles, and handily arranged buttons provide quick access...
