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...

The OlympusC-60 Zoom ($449) is an updated version of 2003's C-50 Zoom(read our review).Both cameras share the same all-metal body and 3X zoom lens,and the C-60Z offers the following upgrades over its predecessor:

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), Remote...

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

Quirky. Likable. 6-megapixel
