Olympus C-7070 Review - DigitalCameraInfo

Apr 26, 2005 | Category: Olympus C-7070

Olympus C-7070With a 7.1MP CCD, 27-110mm (equivalent) all-glass Wide Zoom lens and TruePic TURBO processor, the Olympus C-7070 contains strong internal elements that are sure to appeal to a wide spectrum of users. The host of included features and additional accessory options creates a unique package in the C-7070; however, the $699 (USD) estimated street price may offset the camera’s appeal. Seemingly priced too high for point-and-shooters, the cost begins to extend into the lower SLR ranks, and will likely prove detrimental if SLR prices continue to decline. All-in-all, I would say the camera has a significant amount to offer any level user, however, the features and price land the camera in an obscure gray area and at times runs into contradiction.

Olympus C-7070 Review - Steve’s Digicams

Apr 07, 2005 | Category: Olympus C-7070

Olympus C-7070The Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom is the 2005 successor to the popular C-5060 Wide Zoom we tested in 2003. It retains the 5060’s 4x wide-angle zoom lens with 27mm to 110mm equivalent coverage and its fully-articulating color LCD viewfinder, but increases resolution from 5.1 to 7.1-megapixels, and improves minimum aperture to F11. While the C-7070 will have its greatest appeal to the advanced photographer, beginners will be able to get good results using it as a point-n-shoot in Program AE mode and any of the several Scene modes (Landscape, Portrait, Sports, Night Scene etc.) in which the camera automatically sets the optimal shooting parameters.

Olympus C-7070 Review - CNET Reviews

Apr 06, 2005 | Category: Olympus C-7070

Olympus C-7070Although it shares a 7-megapixel sensor and key features with its stablemate, the C-7000, the Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom is an entirely different beast. With an expansive 27mm-to-110mm zoom (35mm-camera equivalent), full manual controls, support for both xD and CompactFlash cards, and a macro mode good down to 1 inch, this looks like a photo enthusiast’s compact alternative to a digital SLR or an electronic-viewfinder-equipped camera. However, though priced in the same neighborhood as its dSLR and EVF competition, it offers only an optical viewfinder and a color LCD.

Olympus C-7070 Review - PC Magazine

Mar 30, 2005 | Category: Olympus C-7070

Olympus C-7070The sturdy, metal-bodied 7.1-megapixel Olympus Camedia C-7070 Wide Zoom boasts a wide-angle, f/2.8 to f/4.8, 5.7- to 22.8-mm (27- to 110-mm, 35-mm equivalent) 4X optical zoom lens. This lets photographers capture more of an interior scene in a single shot. And outdoors, everything from skyscrapers to landscapes will fit comfortably in the frame. But if you’re looking to get real close to your subjects without having to rely on digital zoom, the lens might leave you feeling left out of the action.

Olympus C-7070 Review - DCRP

Mar 21, 2005 | Category: Olympus C-7070

Olympus C-7070There’s a whole lot to like about the Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom, and only a few things that you won’t care for. The C-7070WZ isn’t just another 7 Megapixel camera; this one features an ultra wide-angle lens starting at 27 mm. Unlike the Coolpix 8400 (which starts a little wider, at 24 mm), the C-7070 has some decent telephoto power, with a top end of 110 mm. If that’s not enough for you, Olympus offers your choice of conversion lenses, which can reduce the focal length to 18.9, or increase it to a whopping 330 mm. The expandability doesn’t stop there, though. The camera also supports 40.5 mm filters (without the need for a conversion lens adapter), an external flash, a power battery grip, and an underwater case.
