Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera ?

Have olympus camedia c 5050 will not take pictures

\015 Have olympus camedia c 5050zoom will not take pictures and cannot use lcd monitor except to review pictures recorded by another camera. Every thing else seems to work. Possibly, the issue of not being able to view the scene through the lcd monitor might have the same cause as that of not being able to capture and record the image. The camera was stored without batteries for several months. have installed good batteries and reset factory default settings as required when batteries left out for long period, allthough I might not have done that correctly.\015

My old camera was an Olympus Camedia c-765 digital. My new one is an Olypmus SP-800UZ 14 megapixel. The more I use the SP-8OOuz the more disappointed with the pictures I take. None of them seem sharply in focus like they were with the Camedia camera. Am I doing something wrong or is it a failing in the camera? I have tried most of the multiple settings but I am just not satisified. I thought with having more megapixels I would get a better picture. Am I wrong? Thank you


No, you are not wrong. When there are more pixels, the picture must be more clearly and you can zoom it more. Because you have experience with another Olympus camera, I'm inclined to believe that\012\012\012something is wrong with your new came ... Olympus SP800UZ Digital Camera
