    Hello all,
    A friend is thinking of purchasing an Olympus "Camedia" C-5060 Wide Angle
    Digital camera.

    I think "Camedia" is Italian for "comedy"... :)

    I've only been able to track down one meaningful review on the web.
    (Epinions (nada)... ZDNet (nada))

    It certainly has great specs, but specs don't always tell the whole
    story.

    Does anyone have any info/personal experience with this model... good or
    bad. I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Al Camp

    Nope - that would be "commedia", not camedia.
    I'm setting up a site dedicated to the 5060 here:

    To everyone who responded... thank you very much.

    I had reviously found the DPReview, but Steves-Digicams.com had some great
    closeup shots of the many features of this camera.
    It certainly appears to be a great camera. I'm passing all this info to my
    friend.

    Again, thanks to everyone for your help!

    Imaging resource has a full review also. I take the image quality shots with a
    pinch of salt at this site as many are pictures of pictures which therefore
    seem fairly worthless to me.

    (Why? Well a camera can't hope to capture the full dynamic range of a shot in
    testing, extreme conditions and so photos of such are a compromise which will
    therefore have a limited dynamic range compared to the original scene. You
    want the cameras image quality evaluated on the original scene not a limited
    dynamic range representation of it).

    What the reviews there are good for is a blow by blow account of just about
    every aspect of the camera including timings etc.
