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-8080 Wide Zoom

 

Images have rich colors, are well exposed and sharp ; flash shots show great illumination. Solid body, quick boot and recycle times

Manual focus requires using the jog buttons, menu navigation is slow

Olympus C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera Camera

 

Olympus's C-8080 is a pumped-up version of the C-5060, our current Best Buy. The two cameras resemble each other in overall design and shape, but the C-8080 has 8-megapixel imaging to the latter's 5.1 megapixels, and is significantly bulkier. Its wide...

Like the C-5060, the C-8080 has an articulated LCD panel, but the C-8080's is less flexible--it rotates out and up at right angles to the camera body, but cannot spin 180 degrees as the C-5060's can. Both cameras take wide-angle and telephoto lens...

Heartily built ; In-camera editing of RAW images ; Two memory-card slots ; LCD and EVF viewable in low light ; Good photo quality ; Two live histograms ; Autofocus-assist lamp

Controls can be imtimidating ; Long delays between shots in RAW or TIFF mode ; Lens doesn't have as much zoom power as competitors

Olympus C-8080 Wide Zoom Review

 

On September 29th 2003 Olympus announced the five megapixel C-5060 Wide Zoom, as the name implies that camera was a step up from the C-5050 Zoom in no small measure because of its wide angle zoom lens. And now on the opening day of PMA 2004 Olympus...

Very good resolution, joint best of group Fastest startup time of any prosumer digital camera Superb build quality, professional feel Wide angle five times zoom lens, fast at wide Probably the highest quality new lens designed for 8mp Low high ISO...

Least zoom of current eight megapixel prosumer digital cameras Camera locked while writing RAW images Further than average minimum focus distance (0.8 m) LCD only tilts upwards, does not twist out Only five steps of zoom from wide to telephoto CF card...

My first impression of the C-8080 Wide Zoom was, "at last a prosumer camera that feels as though it is worth its price tag". The C-8080 is built to a higher standard than any of the other eight megapixel digital cameras (save maybe the Sony DSC-F828),...

Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

 

Three months after Olympus release the C-8080 (8 megapixel) digital camera, I was drooling to get my hands on it.

Very fast, reliable, and great quality

In low light areas the auto focus take a bit longer than usual

The best choice of point and shoot camera's out in the market that has the flexibility of manual settings.
