5 megapixels | 1.8 screen | 27 – 110 mm (4.1×)

I've been using this camera for 5 years. It has great features and produces excellent quality images. I opted for this camera at the time because I didn't want to invest in an SLR but I think I am ready now. At today's prices for this older model you cannot go wrong. Problems: Never had any problem.

I have owned this camera for three years and right from taking it out of the box have been very pleased with the results. OK so I do fiddle with them using Phoimpact to get them even better but I would buy the same camera again especially if the LCD was bigger (only1.8 inches) to 2.5 inches. Looking to replace and not very impressed with cameras on the market today. Problems: The Mode Dial problem is well known with this camera and I sent my first one back because of it. The replacement has ...

E' una macchina molto ben costruita, con il corpo in lega di magnesio e tutti i comandi ben assemblati. Resistente, solida, fa fotografie splendide, oltre ogni immaginazione. Il display è ruotante e comodo. Ottima impugnabilità. La forma "a mattonella" la rende comoda da portare sempre con sè. Indicata per fotografi evoluti e per professionisti come secondo corpo. Problems: Mirino scarno. Sensibilità max solo 400ISO. Obiettivo lento e di escursione focale limitata, come anche modesta è la sua ...

One of the great small cameras. I purchased the C-5060 for those times when I didn't want to haul my Canon DSLR and assortment of lenses. I selected the Olympus on the basis of its zoom range, availability of RAW and TIFF shooting modes, availability of accessory lenses and power grip, etc. In other words, the camera has many of the qualities and capabilities of much larger cameras. I was surprised and amazed at the sharpness and true color of the first set of pictures I printed. I was also ...

Over all a great little camera with many big camera features. The WB predefined WB settings are very good and cover almost the entire range of lighting conditions where I typically shoot. The auto WB is very, very good for the majority of my needs. However, higher ASA equivalent settings are prone to higher digital noise when making night time exposures. While I cant really call this a problem, I have noted that auto focus is very slow in very dim to dark conditions, even with the focus ...

I´ve been using c-5060 camera for more than a year. I was very impressed for it. I like image quality, features, WIDE zoom (that was the reason i bought it). The s-macro mode is incredible. Very good camera. I was usung a Canon point-shoot before, so different..I hink Olympus can do dial mode more strmg for hard use.

This is an excellent camera. I want to have complete control over the settings, this and the wide angle are the main reasons I bought this one. Other pros: Image quality is outstanding, with accurate colors and very good sharp details Very solid well-balanced metal body It has both passive auto focus system and AF-assist lamp, so that it can focus even in the dark. Focusing was generally not a problem Wide angle lens is very good for composing shots I like the software, it even has barrel ...
