Those of you familiar with Olympus already know the high quality with which
their imaging products are manufactured. For those still living under a rock,
allow me to elucidate. Olympus began life as Takachiho Seisakusho, a Japanese
company started in 1919 to produce, what else, Japan's first microscope. Yes,
that's right, microscope. It's not as big a stretch as you would think, moving
from microscopes to digital cameras. In fact, it's more of a natural evolution.
Olympus still maintains a large presence in medical imaging and technology.
Their product catalog ranges from cameras and printers to chemistry immuno
systems and blood bank systems. Chances are if you've ever heard the term
aliquotting, you've heard of Olympus. But that is another story for another day.
We're here to discuss cameras and the C-5050 in particular. SO without further
ado, let's have a look at the Olympus C-5050 Digital Zoom.
