This is one of few cameras that lives for years and still holds its own against new release. I've been using this for 6 years. Through the years, I've changed my DSLR's and other compacts but I still keep this one for backup or casual use.
In year 2011, comparing with other cameras, it lacks image stabilization, hd movie, high iso performance, and high resolution but it's still one of the better camera in terms of image quality.
When I first got my Canon 450D, I was shocked how DSLR's... (read more)

The Olypus C-5060WZ a cult camera. I picked this camera up on ebay, as I was looking for a wide-angle camera. It was the best decision I made.
When you see photos of the C-5060WZ, you could be forgiven for thinking that its an ugly camera, but don't let it fool you, once you have it in your hands, you will see it is a thingof beauty. Also, it is nicer then the SLRs because their lense sticks out. So it is bulkier. This is a bigger camera, but very manageable to carry around with you. You... (read more)

I have had the Olympus C-5060 digital camera for about 18 months. All of a sudden the camera just freezes, you can't do anything! Now the lens starts going crazy, in and out, the menu comes up and stays there, I can't even get it to shut off! I take out the battery and then put it back. After leaving it out for a few days, it seems to adjust. I am very disappointed in this EXPENSIVE camera!! (read more)

DO NOT BUY OLYMPUS C-5060 DIGITAL CAMERA!
Olympus has a problem with part# VC7997 on these cameras that causes menus to pop up on LCD without touching buttons and buttons stop working. Numerous people are complaining about this problem on the Internet - go to yahoo groups, Olympus_405080. Olympus needs to recall the camera. Mine worked fine for almost 3 months before the problem arose so don't think yours won't fail. (read more)

The Olympus C-5060 is a great camera, but mine was faulty on receipt from Pixmania. Problems with pixels on the LCD screen causing a dot in the middle of the display. I've returned my defective 5060 asking for a replacement. I have to wait a month whilst they test it before I get another camera. Beware of long delays in getting repairs or replacements. (read more)

In ESP exposure mode, the pictures this digital camera returns are out of this world! I tried to use the Olympus C-5060's many other exposure settings (including spot metering), but still the ESP mode is almost 100% reliable in many extreme situations such as mixtures of dark shadow and high exposure. Also, I find the HQ resolution is perfectly adequate for even A4 size prints - I swear SHQ is of no noticeable improvement over HQ (so why use more space on your flash card?!). (read more)
