BROKEN CANERA SOLD AS A WORKING ONE

UNHAPPY CUSTOMER, Amazon
27 November 2010
  • Summary: I needed an olympus c50 to fit the underwater housing I already owned. I found one and bid and won it. When it arrived, i was immediately disapointed. The door slid open but slanted to the side. The door was very worn and did not activate the camera as it should have.

weak materials, warranty didn't cover damage

  • Summary: while i was happy with the picture quality, except for the abundance of red-eye in photos, i had a reocurring problem with the track of the cover chipping and causing the sliding lens cover to loosen and even come off.

Olympus Camedia C-50 Zoom

R. Robert "Blessed by Abundance", Amazon
10 January 2005
  • Summary: This is a great little camera! Fits easily into a pocket or purse - I've carried it from desert to glacier and it has performed wonderfully. Terrific quality shots - just enough zoom - and very hard to damage when it is closed up.

don't buy it

Caraculiambro, Amazon
26 November 2004
  • Summary: A very powerful, versatile, and impressive little camera. For taking shots in conditions of plentiful light, this camera was hard to beat, at least when it came out (it's since been discontinued). When it hit the market, it was unquestionably the most powerful digital camera of its size.

A very nice camera...with a big CCD

cperrey, Amazon
15 November 2003
  • Summary: I was looking for a camera with 5 megapixels because I wanted to be able to replace our 35 mm film camera. The ability to print film-quality 8x10s was a real allure. My wife wanted something small that we could carry with us all of the time.

Love this camera!

Marisa Nitsch, Amazon
2 November 2003
  • Summary: I think this camera is definitely worth the money. It takes great pictures and has many many features. Its easy to use once you use it a few times, or read the manual. Battery lasts a while, takes great close ups too! Non blurry. Sometimes get the red eye but depends what setting you have it on.

Best ever

Richard L. Steiner, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned four Olympus digital cameras and this is the best of the lot. I took my Olympus C-50 to Switzerland last spring and it performed beautifully. The battery held a charge far longer than I expected.

Keep Looking

"pwooster2", Amazon
20 August 2003
  • Summary: I bought this camera based on several reviews most notably Consumer Reports. Size good. Battery life good. 5 megapixels very good. My experience using the camera not good--too much red eye, weak zoom and not durable. My camera quit working after just 3 months. It jammed in the open position.

Nice camera, but overpriced for what you get

Amazon
1 July 2003
  • Summary: I bought a C-50 on the advice of a salesperson. I was looking for a C5050 and the store I was at didn't carry it, but he suggested that I give the C-50 a try, and that I could return it if I wasn't satisfied.
