    Default Help needed in buying a Olympus DC

    My friend want to get a DC. Can fellow Clubsnaper help, because I'm not very familiar with Olympus DC.

    His choice of DC:

    1. Olympus C-730UZ

    2. Olympus C-5050Z

    What is the current price for both the DC? Which is better?

    Thanks.

    5050 is good. My personal opinion. Price is higher, ard 1.2k if I'm not wrong. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    If compare btw Fuji 602 and Olympus C-5050z?

    I think price wise Fuji 602 should be cheaper than Olympus C-5050z

    But features I'm not too sure.

    730z 3mp 10x zoom $~900
    5050 5mp, normal zoom, tilt lcd, uses cf sm xd, f1.8-f2.8 $~1k2, FL hotshoe

    602z 3-6mp, 6x zoom, $not sure, ISO hotshoe

    body size: 602z >> 730 ~= 5050
    perf like AF think 602z 5050z comparable but 730 is std-digicam

    If price is not an issue, I would highly recommend you the Olympus C-5050Z, else then the Olympus C730UltraZoom...

    Which is better?
    IMHO, the primary relative strengths of each camera are as follows: the C-730UZ features a very long focal length zoom range but "only" 3mp of image resolution, whereas the C-5050Z is an all-round good performer with 5mp but much shorter focal lengths. I would therefore suggest that you ask your friend to base his decision on his response to this question: which is more important to the type of photography he does, long focal length or higher image resolution? Yes, it is true that the C-5050Z is the newer model and therefore has more bells and whistles (in particular the ability to use CF cards and a flash hot shoe), but in the end I would not say that one model is necessarily better than the other under all circumstances; the two were designed for different purposes, so it depends on what one's own photographic aims are. Just my two pennies' worth.
