C-8080 Wide Zoom

 

Pros: A good-looking new body and a longer zoom lens distinguish this new 8mp digital camera from its predecessor. Images are impressively sharp.

The C-8080 Wide Zoom's main weakness is its lacklustre monitor. The shutter response doesn't live up to the manufacturer's claims, either.

On the other hand, the 8080 WZ gains a pop-up flashgun, which is helpful in avoiding redeye, though keen photographers will use an external flashgun on the standard hot shoe - if you use an Olympus model it'll interface to the exposure controls

Olympus Wide Zoom review: Olympus Wide Zoom

 

Full manual controls; wide-angle lens with excellent macro capabilities; excellent battery life.

Undistinguished image quality; excessive shutter lag in dim light.

Enthusiasts will enjoy the rich set of control options but will find some aspects of the camera disappointing.

Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom

 

Images have rich colors, are well exposed and sharp ; flash shots show great illumination. Solid body, quick boot and recycle times
