Olympus Camedia C5500 5.1MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom

  • This is my second digital camera, the first also an Olympus. With so many features and shooting modes, I did study the manual. I first found that shooting without a flash indoors using the \"auto\" mode or the \"P\" (program) mode produced fuzzy images, but using the \"Scene - Portrait with Available Light\" function, indoor shots are clear. I love not having a removable/losable lens cap. The built in lens cover retracts as the camera turns on. The \"Scene - Sports\" feature produced incredibly sharp action photos at our local rodeo. The macro and super-macro feature is very good. Closeup flower images come out clear even with a little breeze blowing. I like having an optical view finder. The 5x zoom coupled with the seamless 4x digital zoom (20x max zoom) produced a surprisingly sharp closeup. The one thing that isn\'t good - and it may be so with all digital still cameras - is the movie feature. The resolution is very low and capturing one frame for use as a photo is useless. Seems to me my older digital did a better job of using a movie to capture a child leaping from a dock so that I could select one frame from the movie to print. Perhaps I need more experience. My previous camera used AA batteries, and this one does too, so my stock of rechargeable AA batteries hasn\'t gone to waste. The size and weight of the camera are good. The camera comes with the Advanced Manual on CD rom, in PDF format. This is a bit of a pain if you want to have the manual with you, but at least you can print it in any size, and omit the parts (like how to print photos) you don\'t need. The manual is fairly easy to understand and navigate. The camera is easy to use (once you know where everything is) and I\'m very happy with it. I still have much to learn and will probably like it even more. I gave it a 4-star rating only because of the movie problem.Update: After using the camera for several months I\'ve noted several problems with it. It badly over-exposes when using the \"scene\" menu. So far, only the point-and-shoot auto settings have resulted in good photos. Doing comparison shots with my old 2.1mp Camedia 2040, and a Nikon Coolpix, all three did a good job on automatic settings. When switching to \"Scene\" mode for the Sport Zoom, either in \"sport\" or \"landscape\" mode, the photos were horribly over-exposed in late afternoon lighting. Olympus has a way to fix this, I think, but when you\'re in a hurry for a photo, just use the \"auto\" mode or buy another camera. Instead of 4 stars, I\'d give it a 2 1/2.
  • This camera replaced my Olympus C-3020Z. In general it is a substantial improvement over the earlier camera: higher resolution, bigger zoom range, bigger LCD, sound and AV capabilities, a greater range of useful scene modes, and more. The camera is smaller. The flash must be manually popped up for use, which is fine with me, as the flash on the 3020 would go off whenever the camera thought it was a good idea unless it was manually deactivated, which resulted in a lot of pointless or unwanted flash firings. The pictures are excellent. The macro modes are especially impressive.Nevertheless, the camera falls short of the older model in a few annoying ways:No neck strap. The camera has only a wrist strap. I for one do not want to walk around with a camera dangling from my wrist. There\'s not even a provision for atttaching a strap. Ridiculous.No lens cap. This is actually sort of a wash. The cap on the 3020 had to be removed before powering up the camera, which could be tough for some to remember. It did not attach to the camera very securely, causing it to pop off frequently when placed in a bag. The 5500 has a built-in cover which closes when the camera is powered down. This is convenient, but the thin leaves of the cover seem fragile and cannot provide the same level of impact protection as a cap. They can also easily be drawn back by any object that impinges upon them.Slow lens. This is the worst part. The wide open speed of the lens is actually the same as on the 3020: f/2.8. However, the lens on the 3020 was physically larger and retained the full f/2.8 aperture throughout its zoom range. The tiny lens of the 5500 starts to lose aperture as soon as you start zooming. It winds up at a slow f/4.8. This is a serious limitation for low-light photography. I would prefer a slightly bigger camera with a lens that was equally usable throughout its zoom range.
  • I have had this camera every since it came out. From the beginning it has been a really good camera. But I thought I wanted a new big Olympus with all of bells and whistles. I use the new one maybe 6 or 7 times and went back to this one. Simple is best. I have been doing a lot of pictures for my website and use the C5500 for all of my photo\'s and they have been just great. However, it fell out of my hand and it broke after bouncing on the floor. So I went to use the more expensive one. Picture were not as good. I was upset as I didn\'t know if I could replace my old Olympus C5500. I found this one used. It felt sooooo good to have my old friend back. This one, while used, still took the same quality of photos which were always clear and the color is real and not bluish. I don\'t have to set down and try to figure out all of the bells and whistle because I already know them. Simple is best. Thank you for having this in stock at a great price.
