Olympus C-7070 - Impressive features|
Explaining their reasons behind the decision the jury said; "The Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom packages an optimal blend of impressive features, good image quality and easy handling. With a 7 megapixel CCD and zoom lens corresponding to 27-110 mm in the 35mm format, this camera is a serious snapper. It’s also very easy to take great pictures: there is a flip-up, rotating 1.8” monitor, an extremely powerful battery and a hot-shoe with TTL-contacts that accommodates an optional external Olympus FL-flash. Best of all, this flexible performer retails at a very reasonable price."
