Olympus C-5050 Digital Camera {5 M/P} Description


The key trait of the C-5050 Zoom is versatility. Its built-in hot-shoe allows an external flash to be connected without the need for cables, and an Olympus FL-40 flash will provide full 'through the lens' metering so photographers can add more functionality to the C-5050 to get the best lighting conditions for their creations. The camera takes three types of memory media - the new xD-Picture Card, SmartMedia, and Compact Flash Type I or II including microdrives - and can hold two media cards simultaneously for the most storage options. A multi-position LCD for optimized image viewing allows photographers to shoot from the hip or to get the perfect over-the-head shot.

Other Features
Images captured with Olympus digital cameras are known worldwide for their vibrant, sharp and photo-realistic image quality. This is achieved with a host of key technologies including Olympus' high-quality all-glass lens (with aspherical lens elements) that's specially designed for digital cameras. The bright light gathering capability of the C-5050's aspherical f1.8 lens allows for greater flexibility when shooting in low light conditions without a flash in order to maintain the mood of the existing light scene. The super bright lens also extends the range of the built-in flash, and offers extended creative control over depth of focus in the final photograph.
