  • Summary: Have bought this camera 3 times. Light weight, fits great in a smaller hand, phenomenal photos that can be easily enlarged up to 11x14 without losing clarity.

Digital Reincarnation of the OM-1

Allison J. Clough "Desert Mountain Woman", Amazon
14 June 2004
  • Summary: For more than ten years of mountaineering, running rivers and exploring remote corners of the world, my OM-1 was my constant companion. Although not a professional, I was passionate about photography. In 1990 I was experimenting with low-light color photography.

A Review for First Time Buyers

Amazon
5 February 2004
  • Summary: I think this camera is worthy of a different kind of review than some of the ones I've read here, so I'll try to deliver that. I was a first-time-digital-user & buyer before this camera, and this is what I'd have wanted to know before buying this camera.

Olympus C 5050

Consumer Democracy
27 December 2003
  • Summary: This camera was purchased as a "lab camera" to photograph small items with great detail. One use is to adapt the camera to standard "zoom" microscopes easily by inserting the camera in place of one of the eyepieces.
  • Pros: 3X zoom is small, lens cover not built in, LCD should pivot down further.
  • Cons: 3X zoom is small, lens cover not built in, LCD should pivot down further.

One Great Camera

Amazon
12 December 2003
  • Summary: I've had this camera for about 2 months and I love it. If you have some basic experience it is easy to use (though it takes a little while to get used to the menu system). I upgraded from a 1.3MP Panasonic. So far I've mostly used the program mode.

Consumer Reports top pick...OK number 2

Bob Feeser "MillCrafters.com", Amazon
26 November 2003
  • Summary: I just went online with Consumer Reports and they have the C 5050 by Olympus as the number 2 spot in the 5 megapixel showdown. The Nikon coolpix was number one. I don't exactly understand that considering that the 5050 gets 400 shots per battery charge, and the coolpix only 100.

the best under $1,000 digicam out there

clevernonsense, Amazon
1 November 2003
  • Summary: After having my 4040 stolen about 1.5 years ago, I saved a bit for a replacement. I got the 5050 about 2 months after it was released and I couldn't be happier. The image quality blows away anything in its category, including the coolpix.
