Summary: In the first place, camera was cheaper in price, looked like new,very portable,nice and picture quality is excellent. There's nothing I dislike about this camera and outstanding compared to others I've bought. I LOVE IT.
Summary: Very compact - built tough, not light, but doesn't matter. Especially like the viewfinder, which is the main reason I bought it.I hate using digital cameras with only the lcd for viewing the subject.
Tried, true and trusted this model of Olympus camera.

Summary: I bought the Olympus Camedia C 50 Zoom to replace the one I had since 2003. It had been stolen during a home invasion. Even the thieves recognized it as a great camera. I had used my original camera for all our family photos and all my eBay photos. I love the quality of the photo it takes and the ease of use. It has many great features.
Summary: This is a great old camera which has features that a lot of new cameras don't have (unless you pay a premium) This was a used camera and I keep it in my car. It is 5 mp which is all I need most of the time and it has aparture and shutter priority and also a remote.
Summary: I used to carry an old Wal-Mart digital camera in my lunch box,and it was okay for most pictures. Not great,but passable. It finally quit working and I searched for this specific model camera,because my Sister has one I'd borrowed a few times and really liked. I finally spotted one at a price I could afford,and all the circumstances seemed to line up well,so I bought it.
Summary: Too bad excellent products like this one are replaced by designs that fail to perform as well. C-50 was a breakthrough product when first introduced loaded with features that will be appreciated by camera buffs familiar with SLR operation and deliver excellent results as its features are exercised. Many more recent models introduced by Olympus are quite interesting and have similar features, but lack the important sight finder feature, so crutial to OUTDOOR PHOTOGRAPHY.
