A decent digicam with the caveat that it's a bit slow on the trigger. For any kind of action shot pre-focus is an absolute must. Internal flash is VERY good for shots within 8 feet. Anyway, I almost never use this camera now that I have a D70. The D70 is a far better camera ......... somewhat bigger of course. Regards JohnG Problems: Mine busted after a couple of months and OLY fixed it. If it craps out again it's going in the garbage pail. I don't think I could recommend this camera.

I bought this camera about a year ago. It's my first digital camera. I'm totally satisfied with this Camera. I looked at a lot of cameras before I bought this one. I am in Commercial Real Estate so I wanted a wide angle lens to photograph buildings. The camera has supassed all of my expectations. I was able to use it out of the box even though I'm a beginner. I am gradually figuring out how to use all the features of this camera and continue to consult the manual. Although it's kind of a ...

I have had this camera for 8 months. Image quality is excellent. Case is built like a tank. Has a solid pro feel to it. LCD is bright and quite clear in all but sunlight backlit situations. Many many options available and several from buttons on the camera rather than menu driven. Wide angle is nice. Battery lasts a long long time. I have 2 and never run out of power. Writing speed is very fast in xd and cf cards. Only slows down when shooting in tiff or raw. Color accuracy is ...

I own this camera for a month. Before I had a camedia c-3020. I bought it from PIXMANIA for 461 euros with a leather case! The colors of c-5060 are more natural and overall the image quality is better. The LCD is bright and practical. I am very pleased with my choise. Also a very good looking camera! Problems: nothing till now

Good digicam, nice pictures, sharp marco, wide angle lens, long life battery, good hand feeli, metallic body, profession appearance, lot of features, flipped and clear LCD mon, very user friendly if you read though the user guide, good for new digicam-users to learn taking photos, the best stepping stone for new hands to advance to prosumers/professional photographers. Very good price at $450. Recommended if you still looking for one for yourself (best for gentlemen). Problems: Taking photos ...

Fantastic camera, and the strong points are: - sharp images - best color i've seen - very fast autofocus system - wide angle (27mm) - excellent, really! - probably all the features you'll ever need - very robust (no problems with me up to now) Every picture I take I get more satisfied and I get the feeling I bought the best camera at that price range. Problems: - the ridiculous and infamous need of an Oly xD card for panoramas. You do not need this, Olympus! Shame on you for that!!!

I've had no time to assess this camera. Within three weeks of purchase. it broke down. I don't know whether the problem is due to hardware or software, but there is clearly a problem of reliablity with this camera that Olympus is not addressing. Problems: After just three weeks, the camera ceased to respond to any command.

On the whole, the image quality produced by this camera is excellent, the 27mm wide zoom lens is very useful for shooting outdoor scenery, also good at indoor environment without using the flash. The built quality and finish of the C5060Z is good. The features that provided by the DC are enormous. In fact, I need to use only 70% of the feature. Problems: I think the 4 optical zoom is not enough, better to have 6 or more...
