DIWA AwardsOlympus C-7070 Wide Zoom wins DIWA Gold Award : DIWA (Digital Imaging Websites Association), a world-wide organisation of collaborating websites, today announces a Gold award to Olympus for their sophisticated wide zoom digital compact camera, the Camedia C-7070 Wide Zoom. Following the success of its Camedia siblings, the C-5060 Wide Zoom and the C-8080 Wide Zoom, both awarded DIWA medals, it came as no surprise that also the C-7070 Wide Zoom obtained excellent results from the rigorous DIWA test procedure. Its fabulous 4x wide angle zoom lens, with focal lengths equivalent to 27-110 mm and its high quality 7.1 megapixel image sensor proved to be a perfect match for quality conscious photographers.
Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom wins DIWA Gold AwardDIWA Awards - Kai Thon
Kai Thon, DIWA’s test manager, says: “The C-7070 Wide Zoom is a brilliant example of a successful evolution of a winning concept. The camera features all the essentials for making a perfect camera; a high quality lens for various situations, reasonably compact ergonomic camera design, high image quality, plus a vast selection of individual preferences and creative options. Despite all its qualities, the C-7070 Wide Zoom has a pleasantly moderate price tag”.

Olympus C-7070 digital camera - DIWA's conclusion
Casual amateur photographers may not be attracted to the Camedia C-7070 Wide Zoom, but any ambitious photo enthusiast will appreciate its capability of solving most photographic tasks, from landscapes to portraits and close-ups. This is made possible by a powerful 4x zoom lens with 27mm wide angle and 3 cm super macro, RAW and RAW+JPEG file formats, shutter speeds from 1/4000 to 120 seconds, multiple choices of image parameter settings, a highly sophisticated histogram display, fast and precise hybrid auto focus and a flip-and-turn LCD screen. To expand its capabilities even further, there are options for external flash, compatible conversion lenses, CF or xD memory cards and wireless or wired remote control.

Olympus Camedia C-7070 Wide Zoom - DIWA Gold awarded
The DIWA group of experts found the Olympus Camedia C-7070 Wide Zoom to be an excellent compromise between high quality performance, excellent handling comfort and value for money, an achievement well worthy of a DIWA Gold Award.
