Summary: i think it makes things more complicated than they really need to be but it takes great pictures. also....after purchasing the product, i learned that the camera has to have a proprietary zoom lens that is way more expensive than say, canon. but other than that i am very happy.
Summary: Purchased the C-8080 Wide Zoom to replace my Olympus C-3020. Excellent decision at first. Two months of great pictures, except in low light situations (poor focus). Then the bottom dropped out. The camera froze in the middle of the operation - just like my computer often does.
Summary: I've pursued photography as a hobby for many years, and have been using digital cameras or a number of years. After reading the glowing reviews of the 8080, I decided to give it a try. The camera build is excellent, and the ergonomics are great too.
Summary: Very good camera but... If you shake the camera, it rattles, the lens is not firmly mounted. The power botton is horriable. You can hit it with you finger working the camera and be turning it off in the middle of an operation. Highlights can easily be blown out. Focus in the dark are out of focus.
Summary: Ho appena sostituito la Camedia 2100 ultra zoom con questa 8080 molto più costosa. Confrontando le foto eseguite nelle stesse condizioni con le due macchine, devo confessare che sono alquanto perplesso.
