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 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. I contacted the seller and he said I needed to buy a memory card as it would not work with out a memory card(so he sent it not working).
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.
