Combining first rate photo technology with a compact metal body, C-50ZOOM will thrill design enthusiasts as well as quality-conscious photographers looking for a state-of-the-art compact digital camera. Incorporating a five megapixel CCD, bright (f2.8) 3x zoom lens and precision metering systems, it allows effortless shooting and provides sharp, well-exposed, life-like results, utilising the new digital image storage standard xD-Picture Card.
Categorically closing the gap between design and performance, the CAMEDIA C-50ZOOM is the camera for those that want it all. Housed inside a body with a stylish, eye-catching and extremely compact fully-metallic design are a wealth of high-quality technical features. From the versatile, bright f2.8 / f4.8 precision 3x zoom optical system to its impressive five megapixel resolution, this innovative model ensures photos taken will excel in every respect. The optical system is comprised of seven glass lenses arranged in six groups and features two aspherical elements for edge-to-edge clarity. Many automatic and manually adjustable settings guarantee C-50ZOOM photographers enjoy ease of use while being left with plenty of scope for creative possibilities. Images are saved on xD-Picture Card, the new digital storage standard.

3x bright optical zoom plus 4x digital zoom
Classy aluminum front and back design
Versatile automatic and manual functions
QuickTime motion JPEG movies
Easy access to multiple shooting modes via main dial

xD Picture Card media storage
This remarkably small camera measures just 99.5 (W) x 58.5 (H) x 41.5 (D) mm and weighs merely 194 g (without battery or xD-Picture Card).
Numerous options for exposure control are on hand, including manual and spot metering for advanced users, while the automatic digital ESP (Electro Selective Pattern) option gives complete comfort and ease. The shutter and aperture priority modes allow users to set one adjustment while the camera takes care of the other. Furthermore, auto bracketing is available for automatically taking a series of shots with differing exposure values. A TTL contrast detection autofocus ensures photos are crisp and clear.
Six scene program shooting modes provide photographers with pre-sets for many common motifs such as night scenes, sports and landscapes. In addition, the user's favourite photographic settings may also be saved in the special `my mode' folder. This retains the selected settings for later use. Thanks to the unique Olympus TruePic image optimisation technology, captured images will impress with their brilliant colours and gradation. Even for those pictures not recorded at the maximum resolution, the TruePic algorithm utilises data from all the CCD's five million pixels to produce optimal images, thereby saving memory without any great sacrifice to quality.
The C-50ZOOM allows macro photography and panorama shooting and, moreover, as well as still photos, can record moving pictures in QuickTime Motion JPEG format. An advanced white balance system ensures images stand out with their true colours.
To achieve the camera's ultra-compact dimensions, Olympus has incorporated two high-performance yet space-saving innovations. First, the C-50ZOOM is equipped with a slot for the xD-Picture Card - the world's smallest digital camera memory card*. This new removable storage standard currently features capacities up to 128 MB. Moreover, a Compact Flash adapter, soon to be available from Olympus, ensures compatibility of the xD-Picture Card with CF slot-equipped devices, e.g. digital cameras, thus allowing a variety of users to utilise the new storage medium. The C-50ZOOM is supplied with a 32 MB xD-Picture Card.
The second coup is incorporation of an all-new ultra-small rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Not only does it make the camera considerably smaller, the very-high battery capacity lets scores of shots be taken without needing recharging. This camera model is supplied with a quick-charger featuring a recharging time of about two hours.
With the USB AutoConnect interface, images are quickly and easily downloaded to a computer. The CAMEDIA Master software, that comes with the camera, lets users chose from numerous options for further processing of their digital photos, including editing and archiving. The CAMEDIA C-50ZOOM supports the new EXIF 2.2 standard as well as PIM II**, enabling compatible printers to apply the saved data in order to produce optimised image printouts.
