OlympusIt's a one-off moment, like your friend doing his first bungee jump. You're all ready but the digital camera is too slow and you miss the shot. Who's never experienced that? With its latest top-of-the-range digital compact camera, Olympus puts an end to such infuriating experiences. The 5.1 megapixel CAMEDIA C-5060 WIDE ZOOM is one of the fastest digital camera models with a startup time of merely 3 sec. and a release time lag (including AF time) of 0.4 sec. (in wide angle, focus position from 80cm to infinity). And in the high speed sequence shooting mode, the shooting speed of three frames per second (HQ) ensures that you can capture a whole series of breathtaking moments.
The new Olympus CAMEDIA C-5060 WIDE ZOOMMoreover, the 5.1 megapixel model stands out with its wide-angle capabilities. Starting at a focal length of 27mm (35mm camera equivalent), the lens gives you the broad scope to capture sweeping landscapes or the majesty of great architecture. But what's so amazing about a digital camera with a wide-angle lens? Well, to avoid the problem of cornershading, a loss of quality at the edge of the frame, first-class optical elements need to be used and arranged to ensure the telecentric transmission of light. Only then, when the light hits the camera's sensor at a right angle, are bright, colourful results ensured. But there's no need to restrict yourself to the big picture. The camera's 4x zoom (equivalent to 110mm with a 35mm camera) also lets you concentrate your photographic eye on details from a scene, such as a face in the crowd.

Besides its impressive technology the C-5060 WIDE ZOOM camera also lives through its design features, such as the multi-angle high-resolution LCD monitor which, fixed to a flexible hinge, can be tilted up and swivelled round by 270° to provide you with a clear view of your subject even from a difficult perspective. The dual AF system ensures your objects are perfectly focussed, and four different exposure modes (programme, shutter priority, aperture priority and fully manual) guarantee complete ease of use as well as room for professional creativity. Compact and ergonomic in design, the CAMEDIA C-5060 WIDE ZOOM has a body of magnesium, which meets demands for both strength and lightness. The smart black finish perfectly reflects the model's pro capabilities. And, of course, the C-5060 WIDE ZOOM is also compatible with a range of CAMEDIA system accessories, like - via a hot shoe - external flash systems, a power grip, filters as well as a tele and wide angle lens converter.

The CAMEDIA C-5060 WIDE ZOOM is the ideal camera for the demanding user, providing all the functions and features needed to explore numerous creative avenues.

The new Olympus CAMEDIA C-5060 WIDE ZOOM is expected to be available in November 2003. The price will be Euro 849
