View Full Version : The Olympus C-5060 Pros and Cons

07-20-2004, 03:03 PM
Well, I've just graduated from high school, am going off to be an arts student (then unemployed, I'm sure) and for a graduation present my parents are buying me a digital camera.

I've been looking at the Olympus 5060 because to me, it seems to have a good combo of quality and price. (It's pretty much the top price I can afford)

So, even though this seems like a pretty small forum, if anyone has any experience, pros and cons, alternative cameras, or advice, I'd very much like to hear it.

I think you have made a good choice. I have the predecessor, the Olympus 5050, and it is the best digicam I have ever used. It is built like a tank, takes pictures fast, and has a nifty swiveling lcd. On auto mode, it just takes great, clean pictures. On manual mode, It has every control you could ever want. It is a great camera to grow into...
