  • Conclusion: The C-7000 is so unlike C-xxxx cameras of old it's almost worth Olympus using a new notation to distinguish it. It's considerably smaller and lighter, much thinner and yet no lighter on features. Despite its compact proportions it's probably the most comfortable of the compact seven megapixel digital cameras thanks to its stubby rubber front grip.
  • Pros: Good resolution, Low noise, low noise reduction, Above average automatic white balance, Very-fast startup, let down by off to first shot time, Good build quality, compact size, Five times optical zoom, good telephoto reach, Good range of image parameter adjustment (+/-5), Good 2.0" fast refresh LCD monitor, Compact and lightweight, Handy 'direct histogram' mode indicates over/under-exposure, Customizable controls, In-camera red-eye fix in play mode
  • Cons: Some purple fringing, Somewhat disappointing battery life, USB 1.1 transfer (slow), Very slow playback browsing, Card formatting takes a long time, Tendency for AF to hunt at telephoto / low light

  • Conclusion: The C-7000 Zoom has the power of an enthusiast-class camera squeezed into a compact size. It's easy to operate for non-techies, but versatile and powerful enough for more demanding users.
  • Pros: Perfectly exposed daylights shots with great dynamic range and color; 5X optical zoom; movable autofocus target zone; shoots in RAW, TIFF, and JPEG formats; useful panorama guides; extended exposure bracketing; in-camera slide show special effects; built-in red eye removal.
  • Cons: Flash shots underexposed; flimsy battery/memory card door and plastic tripod socket; no focusable diopter; no auxiliary flash capability; easy to cover sensor window with your finger.

  • Conclusion: Olympus weet wat beeldkwaliteit is en dat zie je ook bij deze C-70. Die prachtige kleurweergave, zeker buiten, combineert hij met frisheid en mooi doortekende (slag)schaduwpartijen. Onze verwachtingen waren hoog gespannen met een 7 megapixel sensor en dan valt de scherpte iets tegen en valt ook dat tikje kleurschifting extra op.
  • Pros: Helderheid en contrast, realistische kleuren, 5x zoom
  • Cons: Iets kleurschifting
