Olympus C5050 Review

............... extract ...............


Natural rendition of skin tones
Fast lens f1.8 that good for low lighting shots like indoor
Flash Hot-shoe seems to work well with external flash
Auto metering up to 4 seconds the long shutter (A mode)
Noise reduction works well in low lighting shots
Excellent battery life (with a good set of NiMH rechargeable's)


Some chromatic aberrations visible
Slow and Noisy startup time
RAW format does not come with good software converter
Need to remove the lens cap in order to turn on the camera
Have to toggle the self timer mode everytime when using it
The On/Off switch is located too near to the dial button and will easily trigger it to turn off while using the camera
Compensate Exposure needs to press 2 buttons + the dial button
LCD cannot flip to the side
