  • 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: 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.

8 December 2003
  • Excerpt: Na het zien van wat foto's, het lezen van fotografieboeken en het vergelijken van de specificaties van diverse camera's heb ik besloten de olympus C-5050 Zoom aan te schaffen.
  • Pros: Makkelijk in het gebruik met behulp van de vooraf programeerbare instellingen (User Modes)., In combinatie met de FishEye arm ligt het geheel goed in de hand., Gebruik van meerdere opslagkaartjes tegelijk., Drie duiken zonder batterijen verwisselen.
  • Cons: Per ongeluk verdraaien van de aan/uit of menuknop bij aanzetten op grote diepte., Het niet goed kunnen bekijken van de LCD monitor onder bepaalde hoeken., Voor bepaalde instellingen (o.a. Super-Macro en Diafragma) heb je twee handen gelijktijdig nodig.
