  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Olympus C-50 Zoom: (5 megapixel) The C-50 Zoom is a capable five megapixel compact digital camera. It offers a fairly good combination of point and shoot easy of use with manual controls should you want to get more creative.
  • Pros: Good resolution at moderate shutter speeds, noise affects resolution of longer exposures, Good color reproduction, tonal balance has tendency to be too contrasty, Low image noise with moderate shutter speeds, increases slower than 1/8 sec, Automatic white balance coped well in all light but was n...
  • Cons: Jagged diagonals / demosaic artifacts sometimes visible, Automatic white balance occasionally drifts (only subtle), Too easy to power off the camera accidentally, Slow startup if you leave zoom in telephoto position, Slow image write times, Poor macro ability, Limited continuous shooting ability ...

  • Excerpt: After a bit of delay, I finally got the chance to use the Olympus C-50 Zoom ($599). This is Olympus' first ultra-compact metal camera, and also their first to use a proprietary lithium ion battery. Unlike the Digital ELPHs of the world, the C-50 has quite a few manual controls.
  • Pros: Small, well-designed metal body, Impressive 5 Megapixel images, Many manual controls, Can store your favorite settings to My Mode, Customizable menus, Good playback, scene modes
  • Cons: No AF illuminator, No manual white balance or manual focus, Redeye problem -- typical of ultra-small cameras., Poor movie mode, Some "jaggies" and noise in images, Sliding door makes it too easy to accidentally turn camera off, Manual is on CD

  • Excerpt: Olympus Camedia C-50 tok markedet med storm da det ble lansert i september 2002. Kameraet var Olympus' kanskje første virkelig pene kamera, og ble annonsert med en overraskende lav pris. Kameraet er fremdeles blant de lekreste og rimeligste kameraene med 5 Megapiksler.

  • Summary: Alt i alt er Olympus Camedia C-50 et godt kamera. Det er relativt lite, lekkert og gir en kvalitetsfølelse. Kameraet fungerer imidlertid best som som et point-and-shoot kamera, ønsker man å benytte seg av avansert funksjonalitet finnes det enda bedre valg.

  • Conclusion: Successeur du C-40 Zoom, le C-50 Zoom profite d'un zoom un peu plus puissant et d'une résolution améliorée. Il devient du même coup l'un des petits poucets de la catégorie 5 millions de pixels.
