Summary: A classic for many good reasons, still a very good imaging device that makes excellent prints. For those shopping around for this camera, there are many articles written about it online. My review simply supports my view of this camera as an owner of it.
Summary: I love this camera. Takes beautiful vivid shots. Lightweight. A bit on the noisy side. Has lots of options that aren't the easiest to figure out -- a lot of nested menus and if you aren't setting them all the time you have to rethink how to set them.
Summary: This is a great camera, even used, it outclasses alot of new ones. I purchased it because I wanted something close to a DSLR for image, but all in one - currently you can only get cameras with the tiny little point and shoot sensors as all in ones.
Summary: I have been reviewing the reviewers of this product. I have owned this camera since it came out. I have the lens adapter and lenses that are available for this product and have used them. The pros: The camera has minimal turnaround time from shot to shot.

Summary: Before this camera I owned the Oly C3030 and C5050. All great cameras but they pale when compared to this one. Even as I write this today, I would still recommend getting this camera used at a great price rather than spend more on a newer model.
Summary: The sinister Minister here. To give you some insight on yet another camera that has inspired me to go forth and take pictures! The C-8080 has been my 2nd Olympus camera,(The e-300 was my first) and will most definitely not be my last.Some of you may have seen my review of the Sony V3 camera which I...
Summary: I have the D-490 Zoom and needed to upgrade.Great picture quailty but not enough MP and zoom.After reading reviews and being so satisfied with the Olympus I have I decided to buy the C-8080. I am no professional and needed a camera that would do almost everything automatically.
Summary: This will be short and sweet. I just moved up to the C-8080 from the C-5050 (which I loved for several years now). I am glad I did. This is a (realitively) simple camera, two media types, and very easy to use.
