Olympus C5000, C-5000 comments on camera?, tryitoz

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Joe Donaldson, Dec 5, 2003.

  1. I recently bought a 5mp Kodak DX4530 and was not pleased with the
    quality of the shots. A bit noisy.

    Traded it in for an Olympus C-5000Z and it seems (I am a novice) that
    in automatic mode I observe the following when shooting test shots

    Am shooting with and without flash at Hi-res.

    Pictures are a bit blurry at times, perhaps due to shutter lag?
    Whn viewing pictures at 100% size there is some pixelation.

    Am taking pictures of books on a book shelf.

    Thanks for any pros and cons on this camera.

    The problem is that the lens doesn't let in enough light to let you use
    a fast enough shutter speed indoors when you aren't using the flash.
    First make sure that you set the camera in ISO 400 mode for indoor
    photos. That will help, but it may not be enough.I suggest that you
    exchange the camera for a C5050, Canon G3 or G5, or a Sony F717,
    or if you want to splurge, a Canon Digital Rebel (and perhaps a 50mm
    f1.8 lens for it as well? The Digital Rebel has an ISO 1600 mode).
