I chose not to rate this camera when i first bought it october '05. For some reasons i missed the batch that sold at 350 $ and had to buy mine with 500$ (still better than 700 the original price). But prices aside one year and almost a half later with about 6000 pics taken i guess i can review it. Even though it's no longer in production Olympus C cameras are always a great great value for money even used. It's very well built and the image quality is great. I also had to choose between the ...

I chose the C7070 over the Canon G6. Both brands use the same SONY sensor but I prefer the way Oly render its images. The 27mm WA lens is also a big plus as I mainly shoot landscape. Other features that tipped the balance in Oly's favor: magnesium body, ergonomics, hi-res/hi-contrast LCD, longer battery life, pixel-mapping, 4 custom modes, live histogram, threaded lens barrel (for filters), lower noise at ISO 200+ and bargain pricing ($340). The menu system isn't as straight forward as the ...

Bought the C-7070 as a pocket camera to take with me while traveling, crosscountry skiing or mountainbiking when it is not really possible to lug the heavy gear (Nikon D2X and 2.8 lenses...). I really like the ergonomics and the wide angle zoom. The image quality (there is even a RAW mode!) is quite surprising from such a tiny sensor (if you use ISO 80). The battery is very longlasting. For sure, I'd wish a more accurate viewfinder,with some information, and better focus in low light, but ...

Olympus C7070 is a perfect camera for more then amateur photographers. It presents a lot of manual features, much more then other cameras for similiar money. C7070 comes with great wide zoom lens 35mm equiv of 27mm to 110mm, it is great feature for me. Camera is very very handy and looks professional, magnesium-alloy body and black colour. It is a heavy camera, more then 500g with batt, but it is not a problem, I like heavy cameras, they are more stable. C7070 produces hi-res 7.1mpix images, ...

Excellent definiton of details, excellent ergonomy, excellent macro mode pictures, full of bright and colors!!! On other modes, absolutely dead pictures (see the grass at 8080 gallery ,image n 9), or at amazon.com, images 11 12 13 14.Thats what i get too!!! If i want a beatiful picture i must edit all of them. Still i like the camara. Problems: Minor probems, focusing, a litlle noise under certain circunstances, shut down accidently.Raw mode, tonality decays a little to pink.

I have had my 7070 some months now, and have been very impressed; great lens. I now have an E-500 DSLR as well, which I find not quite so good ergonomically, and does not feel quite so solid. The two cameras use the same battery, flashgun, and remote control, which is very convenient. The 7070 will remain as my 'take everywhere' camera. Contrary to what a previous reviewer wrote, the camera has full manual control of shutter speed and aperture (using direct buttons), and focussing. Macro is ...
