Olympus fans will welcome the all-black magnesium
body Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom. It retains
the extra wide angle zoom that is so useful for
landscape and real-estate work, and the fully
articulated high resolution LCD for difficult
angle shots. Now in 8 million pixels resolution.
The 5x optical zoom covers the most useful focal
lengths: from a 35mm equivalent of 28mm (wide
angle) to a medium telephoto of 140mm. Maximum
aperture is F2.4. An electronic viewfinder (EVF)
has 240,000 pixels resolution. Shutter speed ranges
from a blazing fast 1/4,000 sec. to 16 sec.
The Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom keeps the
dual memory card slots which allows you to either
use an xD-Picture Card, a Compact Flash type I
or II (inc. IBM Microdrive 1GB), or switch between
the two at will. A dedicated hotshoe allows the
use of an external flash.
The C-8080 WZ is PictBridge-compatible, i.e.
you can print directly from the camera to any
other PictBridge-compatible printer, regardless
of the brand, without first going through a computer.
The Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom should
appeal to advanced amateur photographers who desire
high quality image together with a high degree
of control. Wireless remote controller included.
