Great for what we wanted

  • 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.

  • 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've had my Olympus C-5050Z since spring 2004 and so far it's been great in most respects. This is the first digital camera I've owned, and I did a lot of research before deciding which one to buy.

Sees in the dark like a cat.

  • Summary: Being an old SLR owner, I like a camera with a lot of glass. The C5050, with the f 1.8 lens, will amaze you in subdued natural lighting situations. It will generally show things much brighter than your eyes would.

  • Summary: My review is going to be very valuable for those who bought already and have problems with Olympus C-5050 digital camera. That's the reason I post this as a Negative review although I think this is a very good camera when you understand how to use it. Here it goes.

From 640 to 2560 px!

  • Summary: My interest in digital photography began with my mother's Sony Mavica FD-75. I began taking photos of flowers in our backyard, but hated lugging around floppy disks wherever I went, and found the bulky body too cumbersome for my delicate subjects.

Needs a wee bit of improvement

  • Summary: Pros: The camera takes wonderful photos which is the most important of all. The rounded grip makes a one handed hold very comfortable. Cons: There is no protection for the LCD display on back (unlike the Canon Powershot G1-3 in which the LCD folds in) so I had to purchase a separate LCD Protector...

Pretty good, a few issues.

  • Summary: Been using the 5050 for while now. Very happy with the quality of most shots. Features and flexibility are pretty good. The shooting modes are nice, programmability is good. Memory card flexibility is great (accepts Compact Flash, Microdrive, xD cards and Smart Media).
