The Olympus C-60 Zoom ($449) is an updated version of 2003's C-50 Zoom (read our review ). Both cameras share the same all-metal body and 3X zoom lens, and the C-60Z offers the following upgrades over its predecessor:. 6. 1 effective Megapixel CCD.
Hybrid AF system. Higher capacity battery.
Sound recording in movie mode. TruePic Turbo engine for faster performance. Larger 1. 8" LCD. USB 2.
0 support. The C-60Z (known as the X-3 in Japan) joins the growing crowd of 6 Megapixel cameras. How does it perform? Find out in our review. What's in the Box. The Olympus C-60Z has a very good bundle. Inside the box, you'll find:.
The 6. 1 effective Mpixel C-60 Zoom camera.
32MB xD Picture Card. LI-12B lithium-ion battery (rechargeable). Battery charger.
Remote control. CD-ROM featuring Olympus Camedia Master software and drivers. Basic manual (printed) + full manual on CD-ROM. Olympus includes a 32MB xD card with the camera, which won't hold very many 6 Megapixel photos. So, you'll quickly want to buy a larger card -- I suggest 256MB as a good size. The C-60 uses a higher capacity version of the battery that came with the C-50.
This one, called the LI-12B, has 4. 5 Wh of energy versus 4. 0 Wh on the old LI-10B. Olympus doesn't publish any battery life information, but the C-60 didn't seem any better or worse than other cameras I've tested recently. If you do have any LI-10B batteries laying around, they can still be used in the C-60Z. The usual rules about proprietary batteries apply here. For one, they're expensive (at least $40 a pop).
Secondly, if you're in a bind, you can't just toss in AAs to get you through the day. The C-60 certainly has room for AA batteries -- but Olympus went the lithium-ion way instead.
When it's time to recharge the battery just snap it into the included external charger. It takes about 2 hours to fully charge the battery. Note that this isn't one of those nice "plug it right into the wall" chargers -- there's a power cable. Olympus includes the RM-2 remote control with the camera. It's very basic, with just one button. You can take a picture with it, or view a slide show in playback mode. No zoom control or anything.
With a built-in lens cover, there's no need to worry about lens caps on the C-60Z. The lens cover is also the power switch for the camera, which I found to be too easy to bump while the camera is on, thus turning it off. If you like accessories. well, the C-60Z isn't your camera. The only ones I could come up with are an AC adapter ($40) and a soft case ($13). A waterproof case (model PT-024) is offered in Japan -- maybe it'll be sold here in the States one day.
Like all of Olympus' recent cameras, the C-60Z is fully compatible with Mac OS X and Windows XP. Most likely, you won't even need to install drivers. The C-60Z includes version 4. 2 of the Olympus Camedia Master software. The screen above shows you everything it can do. The editing tools included with Camedia Master are impressive. You can change all kinds of things like brightness, contrast, and color balance.
There are also red-eye reduction and "instant fix" options. If you don't mind parting with $20, Olympus will upgrade you to the "Pro" version of the software. This adds contact sheet printing, image e-mailing, HTML albums, panorama stitching, and slide shows. The C-60Z continues Olympus' unfortunate tradition of including the camera manual on CD-ROM.
The manual itself is decent, but it's a shame that you have to view it on your PC. A printed basic manual is included, but it lacks the depth of the full manual. The C-60 uses an evolved version of the all-metal body first seen on the C-50. Things have been moved around in places, but if you're familiar with the C-50, you'll have no problem just picking up and using the C-60. The C-60's body is fairly sturdy for the most part, and it's easy to hold. The important controls are easy to reach, though I couldn't stand the tiny zoom controller. While not tiny, the camera is small enough to fit in most of your pockets.
One thing to watch out for with these metal cameras is they scratch very easily -- so take good care of them. Let's begin our full tour of the camera now.
The front of the camera is where you'll find one of the C-60's nicest new features (which I'll get to in a second). The camera uses the same F2.
8-4. 8, 3X optical zoom lens as its predecessor. The lens has a focal range of 7. 8 - 23. 4 mm, which is equivalent to 38 - 114 mm. The lens is not threaded, and the camera does not support conversion lenses.
To the upper-left of the lens is the C-60's flash, which has a working range of 0. 2 - 3.
4 m at wide-angle, and 0. 3 - 2. 0 m at telephoto. That's the same range as on the C-50. You cannot attach an external flash to this camera. Directly below the flash is the passive autofocus sensor. The camera uses both traditional contrast detection and phase-difference detection to focus (the sensor helps with the latter).
That helps speed up focusing in normal lighting, but doesn't do much for low light shooting. That's where an AF-assist lamp comes in handy. The little red circle to the right of the AF sensor is the self-timer/remote control lamp.
The dark circle to the lower-left of the lens is the receiver for the remote control. The microphone can be seen at the top-right of the photo (the C-50 didn't have one). While the C-50 had a 1. 5" LCD display, the C-60 has a 1. 8" screen. With a resolution of 134,000 pixels, the screen is quite sharp, and motion is fluid as well. You can adjust the screen brightness in the setup menu.
To the upper-left of the LCD is a decent-sized optical viewfinder. As is often the case with compact cameras, the viewfinder lacks a diopter correction knob, which is used to focus the image in the viewfinder. To the right of the viewfinder are two buttons:. Flash setting (Auto, auto w/redeye reduction, flash on, slow sync, slow sync w/redeye reduction, flash off) / Delete photo. Macro + metering (Off, spot metering, macro, spot metering + macro) / Protect image.
To the right of the LCD is the button to enter playback mode as well as the four-way controller. The four-way controller is used for menu navigation and adjusting exposure compensation (the usual -2EV to +2EV in 1/3EV increments).
On top of the C-60 you'll find the mode dial, shutter release button, and zoom controller. The mode dial, which was located on the back of the C-50, has the following options:. Auto mode - fully automatic, most menu items locked up. Program mode - still automatic, but with full menu access. Aperture priority mode - you choose aperture, camera selects shutter speed.
The aperture range is F2. 8 - F8.
Shutter priority mode - you choose shutter speed, camera selects shutter speed. Shutter speed range is 4 - 1/1000 sec. Manual mode - you choose both the shutter speed and aperture; Shutter speed range expands to 8 - 1/1000 sec. My Mode - save your favorite camera settings to spot on mode dial.
This is a great feature. Movie mode - more on this later. Landscape-scene. Landscape-portrait. Night Scene - why these two aren't under with the rest of the scene modes is beyond me.
I was excited when I saw that the C-8080 gave you the full shutter speed range in shutter priority mode. Unfortunately Olympus didn't do the same thing with the C-60. If you want exposures longer than 4 seconds, you must use "M" mode. To the right of the mode dial is the shutter release button, with the zoom controller next to that. If there's one thing I hate passionately about the C-60, it's the zoom controller. It's too small and has no "play" (range of motion). Obviously your mileage may vary, but I thought it's worth pointing out.
It takes 2. 4 seconds to move the lens from wide-angle to telephoto, and you can make precise movements by quickly pressing the controller.
The only thing to mention in this shot is the C-60's speaker. On the other side of the camera, you'll find the C-60's I/O ports. These include DC-in (for optional AC adapter0, A/V out, and USB. The C-60 supports USB 2. 0 high speed, and is also backward compatible with good ol' USB 1.
The ports are protected by a fairly sturdy plastic door. Finally, we finish our tour on the bottom of the C-60. Here's where you'll find the battery and memory card slots, as well as a plastic tripod mount. The battery and memory card slots are covered by a plastic door that may bust off if forced. The included LI-12B battery is shown at right. Using the Olympus C-60 Zoom.
I was not impressed with the startup speed of the C-60Z. While it extends the lens quickly, the camera spends an eternity reading the xD card. All this adds up to a startup time approaching 7 seconds. A live histogram is shown in record mode.
The hybrid AF system on the C-60 gives it above average focusing speeds, with a typical delay of a little over half a second. If the camera has to hunt a bit, it may take a second or longer to lock focus.
Despite not having an AF-assist lamp, the C-60 focused very well in low light conditions. The camera does very well in the shutter lag department, with no major delays, even at slower shutter speeds. Shot-to-shot speed is excellent, with a delay of just over one second, assuming you've turned off the post-shot review feature. Much to my surprise, the camera did not lock up while saving a TIFF file to the memory card. In fact, I was able to take three shots in a row in TIFF mode before the buffer was full. Nice.
There's no easy way to delete a photo immediately after it is taken. You can, however, use the QuickView feature to do so. There are tons of image resolution and quality choices on the C-60. And here they are:.
