Great for what we wanted

H. Heuser, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: This camera is no longer manufactured so we purchased a used one. It takes beautiful photos, but the camera itself has a few funky glitches, I assume due to the fact that it was used for several years by someone else. It doesn't always work outside in the cold, and sometimes it won't take pictures at all, with the alarm going off for no apparent reason. But it always comes through with a little patience and we have enjoyed it.

An unbelievable value.

  • Summary: This is a fine quality camera with many advanced features. With the available automatic settings it is easy to use as a "point & shoot", but you have essentially all the options available with a good SLR. I bought it because I owned a Camedia 3030 Zoom and loved it. This is an excellent, first rate product.

C5050 is a great camera for up close and still shots

snowpapa57, Ebay
3 July 2012
  • Summary: My dad had an Olympus C2020 way back, then I bought a C3030 (3MP), when they were about $1000. I upgraded to a C5050 when they came out. I've stuck with them since then, for my work. I design and install septic systems and part of the design process involves soil evaluation and reports. I am on my third C5050, but the extreme conditions that I work in are the explanation for the need for replacement, not the quality of the camera.

Pick you one up if price is right,,5mp is plenty, great for bokeh

glarck304, Ebay

  • Summary: Great camera, really a classic, kinda of dated, and menu system is challenging, but I come from an Olympus background, so I am more fluent than someone who comes from different background. All in all a great camera, one of many that I own, will put it to good use in the right situations.

  • Summary: I have purchased three Olypmus 3020 Camedia cameras...I am addicted to them...on EBay. This one is different, but very good. They just don't make them like this anymore! Thank goodness for EBay!

  • Summary: This is a excellent camera for it vintage (~2003) and has all the features any amateur user would want. Some PROS Can shot TIFF and RAW fully manual shutter, aperture and focus Has two card slots for storage (opinion) uses AA batteries which is easy/cheap to replace anywhere. CONS; It's limited with the 5 MP size Slow processor.

best non reflex camera ever built !

leicatill, Ebay
5 February 2012
  • Summary: Beste Nicht-Spiegelreflex Digital-Kamera die je gebaut wurde. Lichtstärke 1.8, Zoom-Verstellung innerhalb des Objektives ist wichtig bei Mikroskop-Aufnahmen. 5 MP ist völlig ausreichend! Normale AA-Batterien. Optischer Sucher. 3 verschiedene Speicherkarten sind möglich. Viele manuelle Einstellungen sind möglich.

great old camera

melinaz35, Ebay
9 November 2011
  • Summary: I really like this camera. My wife thinks I'm becoming a camera collector just because I now have 9 cameras, but I think I have just discovered the fun I can get out of buying old cameras on line for 10% of their original cost. I have an Olympus E-PL3 and this little camera has just about as much good stuff as the new camera. I've found that 5mp is plenty for most of my use and with a f1.8 lens I find myself picking up this camera a lot for photo ops around the house.
