  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Olympus C-5050 Zoom: (5 megapixel prosumer) The C-5050 Zoom is a first of a kind, it's one of the first prosumer level digital cameras to utilize the new 1/1.8" five megapixel CCD, and to do so with a lens originally designed for lower resolution digital cameras.
  • Pros: Superb resolution, especially considering smaller sensor and same lens as older cameras, Generally good metering, tonal balance will be too contrasty for some but easy to change, Color balance good, nice greens and natural skin tones, red blow outs in extreme sun, Wide control over cameras intern...
  • Cons: Chromatic aberrations visible in strong contrast shots, Red overexposure color shift in direct sunlight, Jagged diagonals / demosaic artifacts sometimes visible, Color clipped to grey at the highest contrast setting, RAW format is welcome but not backed up with a decent RAW converter, no advantag...

  • Excerpt: The Olympus C-5050 Zoom ($799) is the latest iteration of a camera body that has been with us for many years. The body first appeared way back in 1999, with the C-2000Z, a 2 Megapixel camera which was also $799.
  • Pros: Fast F1.8, 3X zoom lens (though it's quite noisy), Full manual controls, including white balance which you can fine tune, Can store eight sets of your settings, Supports three types of memory cards, Hot shoe, Movie mode, with sound, until memory card is full, RAW file mode, plus ability to tweak ...
  • Cons: Chromatic aberrations (purple fringing) a problem, Noise levels higher than they should be, User interface is complex, confusing, Flip-out LCD would've been better if it could rotate, Shutter lag when shutter speed isn't fast, Manual is on CD

  • Excerpt: The 5-megapixel Olympus C-5050 Zoom is not a camera to be taken lightly, despite its seemingly familiar point-and-shoot look. I've had this camera long enough to realize there is considerable potential wrapped up in a package surprisingly this small and lightweight, despite a modest 3x...

  • Excerpt: The Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom is one of the most advanced compact digital cameras in the Olympus range. Only the recently announced C-5060 Wide Zoom, which is basically the same as the Olympus C5050 Zoom with a wider-angle lens, sits above it in the pecking order.

  • Excerpt: Olympus Camedia C-5050Zoom er meget solid bygget i sort metall. Personlig synes jeg kameraet ser pent ut fordi det ser så avansert ut, men andre vil kanskje foretrekke knøttsmå kompaktkameraer i sølvfinish.
