Olympus C-5060 Wide Zoom Digital Camera Camera

 

The first time we saw the Olympus C-5060, we thought it a rather odd-looking camera--big and blocky, with lots of odd angles. But the design grew on us the more we used the camera. This model seems bigger and heavier than the C-5050 it's derived from,...

The C-5060 uses a long-lasting lithium ion rechargeable battery: It still had life when we stopped testing at 500 shots. But the C-5060 doesn't have the same range of battery options as the C-5050, which uses either two disposable CR-3V batteries or...

Olympus Camedia C-5060 Zoom

 

First announced in September last year, the 5 megapixel C-5060 Zoom is currently the second most advanced compact camera in the Olympus lineup, behind the 8 megapixel C-8080 Zoom. Probably it's main attraction is the 27-110mm lens, which opens up w

I really liked the Olympus C-5050 Zoom when I reviewed it in 2003, and I really like the Olympus C-5060 Zoom now in 2004. It may not have added any radical new features or more megapixels, but...

Olympus C-5060 Wide Zoom

 

Big, bulky and black; that's how I see the Olympus C-5060 Wide Zoom digital camera. This is no pocket sized camera, and it shouldn't be either since it is feature packed. With a 5.1 mega pixel capacity, 14x zoom, rotating view-finder and attachable...

C-5060 Wide Zoom - This Month in Digital Cameras

 

Nice wide-angle lens (that still has some zoom power) ; tons of manual controls ; expandable ; two histograms in record mode ; VGA movie mode ; excellent battery life ; Raw images can be edited in camera

Images noisy at default camera settings ; some red-eye ; controls can be confusing at first ; manual only on CD

Product Specifications

The C-5060 Wide Zoom stands out with its extremely short shutter release time lag. You can be sure this 4x zoom camera will fire almost immediately after you press the button. Special, fleeting moments, such as your friend leaping from the bridge on his first bungee jump, are captured forever. In addition, impressive wide-angle capabilities let you record the big picture, for example, the bridge spanning the gorge with the river and onlookers below. Thanks to the five megapixel resolution, your shots will make a lasting impact even when printed in A3 format. Besides these highlights, full creative control, precision features and a large range of optional accessories give you the freedom to handle almost any scene.
