Olympus C-60 Zoom

 

A digital camera conundrum: Many advanced models have all the controls you could want but are so large that they require big, hefty straps so they can hang around your neck--and then you feel as if you're dragging a boat anchor. Most pocket-size...

Like most Olympus models, the C-60 comes with tons of paper documentation, separate booklets for everything from the battery charger to the XD-Picture Card. The basic manual has four languages, so it really doesn't cover much. To find information on...

Compact. Sharp, bright images.

Slow boot and recycle times. Clamshell lens cover can make the camera hang. Confusing menus.

Compact metal body ; Many manual controls ; Hybrid AF system; good low light focusing ; My Mode feature lets you store favorite settings to spot on mode dial ; USB 2.0 support ; Can shoot TIFFs without delay (assuming there's space in the buffer) ;...

Images are noisy; also noticed strange lines in some images ; Sluggish startup speed ; No manual white balance or focus ; Full shutter speed range only available in "M" mode ; Poorly designed zoom controller ; Average movie mode ; Full manual only on CD

Two other things that bugged me are the tiny, uncomfortable zoom controller, and the camera manual on CD-ROM. The 6 Megapixel resolution is overkill for almost everyone, and the tradeoff can be seen by looking at the higher-than-average noise levels in...

Some camera companies seem to end up favoring one particular body design over all others, with those designs ending up being the most liked and most successful over time. With Olympus, this is the C-XXXX series. But their compact models, such at the...

With the obvious aesthetic benefits of the sturdy all-metal body and perfectly good image quality, youâve got yourself a quirky but likable little digicam. Just remember to read the manual to get all that you paid for, since this camera hides many of...
