    Uses of Olympus c5050:-
    1) Use as paperweight
    2) Give it to your 5 year old nephew or cousin - they will know what to do with it for fun
    3) Use as ornament in fishtanks - the fish love them!
    4) Use it for short-put practices if an actual metal ball is not available
    5) Chew toy for your dog
    6)
    7)
    8)

    I used to have the c8080 and found it to be a very good camera.
    It aint the 'pro-ness' of a camera that ensures a good capture. All cameras have their limitations.
    Too fast, too heavy, too small, too slow, too flexible, too controlled, missing a red badge, has a red badge..
    Its up to you to figure out how to work within those limitations.

    Why not? Do you seriously think only a pro-looking camera can take pro-looking pics?

    ANY camera can take good pics... It depends on who's behind it
