Perfectly exposed daylights shots with great dynamic range and color ; 5X optical zoom ; movable autofocus target zone ; shoots in RAW, TIFF, and JPEG formats ; useful panorama guides ; extended exposure bracketing ; in-camera slide show special...

Flash shots underexposed ; flimsy battery/memory card door and plastic tripod socket ; no focusable diopter ; no auxiliary flash capability ; easy to cover sensor window with your finger

The C-7000 Zoom has the power of an enthusiast-class camera squeezed into a compact size. It's easy to operate for non-techies, but versatile and powerful enough for more demanding users.

Olympus C-7000 Wide Zoom review


Imaging-Resource has a review of the Olympus C-7000 Wide Zoom, which is (or at least was when it was announced a couple of months ago) the world's smallest 7 megapixel digital camera with a 5x optical zoom lens. They actually think it's...

Olympus C-7000 Zoom


The C-7000 Zoom measures just 4"(W) x 2.3"(H) x 1.7"(D), and weighs a mere 7.7 ounces, making it the smallest and lightest 7.1-megapixel, 5x optical zoom digital camera as of Oct. 2004. The camera's metal body is finished in a sophisticated Premium Titani

Bottom line - the C-7000 will make a great choice for anyone who wants a high-performance point-n-shoot with a "better than average" zoom range and great image quality. Its 7-megapixel SHQ images have plenty of resolution to create photo-quality 13x19-inc
