From the web:
Professional and advanced amateur photographers will appreciate the powerful features found in the 8-megapixel Olympus Camedia C-8080. It features lightning-fast start-up and shot-to-shot recycling time, thanks to Olympus's new TruePic Turbo image processor. Housed in a black magnesium alloy body, the C-8080 also offers a 5x wide-angle zoom, movie mode with audio, dual memory card slot (XD and CompactFlash), tiltable LCD monitor, and full manual controls.
Optics and Resolution
With its 8-megapixel resolution, the C-8080 captures 3264 x 2448 pixel images for amazingly detailed poster-sized print enlargements. It also offers a full range of resolution modes, including: 2592 x 1944, 2288 x 1712, 2048 x 1536, 1600 x 1200, 1280 x 960, 1024 x 768, 640 x 480.
The C-8080 is equipped with a 5x, f2.4-3.5 optical zoom lens, which is constructed from 14 high quality lenses arranged in five groups and two aspherical lenses to reduce distortion. In addition, three ED elements help minimize chromatic aberration, an effect that often occurs when shooting in telephoto setting. The focal length extends from 7.1 to 35.6mm, equivalent 28mm to 140mm on a 35mm camera.
In addition to capturing still images, you can also shoot short videos (without audio) in QuickTime motion JPEG format at 15 frames per second (fps). TheC-8080 has two resolution modes: 640 x 480 and 320 x 240.
By pressing one of the 13 direct control buttons arrayed around the camera body, a range of options can be viewed on the LCD or EVF (electronic viewfinder), and the setting can then be selected via the jog dial. The C-8080's advanced settings provide full manual operation and are ideal for experienced photographers who want to take control of their creativity.
The C-8080 boasts a new LCD that displays bright, clear images even under dazzling spotlights or in the summer sun. The adjustable 1.8-inch LCD (TFT, 134,000 pixels) enables you to swivel the LCD in multiple directions--upward from the camera body 90 degrees to shoot from the hip or 45 degrees downward to get the perfect over-the-head shot.
Alongside highly accurate light and white balance metering systems, the C-8080 features a dual AF system. A TTL contrast detection system is combined with an additional passive metering system, which uses a second sensor to calculate the phase difference and thus the subjects distance. The camera then fine-tunes the readings for optimum sharpness.
In addition to a release time lag of just 0.3 seconds, rapid data processing also dictates very fast exposure rates. For example, 1.6 frames (each with 8 million pixels) can be shot per second in the sequence shooting and auto bracketing settings in any JPEG mode.
Other features include:
0.44-inch electronic viewfinder (240,000 pixels)
Dedicated Custom button allows you to jump into the feature you use the most with just the press of a button
Eight customizable My Mode settings enable you to assign frequently used settings
Scene modes: Portrait, Sports, Landscape, and Night Scene
Image effects: Black and white, Sepia, Sharpness, Contrast, Color Phase, Resize (portable file size for e-mail or Web), Guideline
Super Macro mode lets you get as close as 2 inches from your subject
The C-8080 is PictBridge compatible, which enables you to transfer pictures from your digital camera to a compatible printer (such as the Olympus P-10), without a PC or image-editing software. All PictBridge devices share three basic features: camera-to-printer connecting, single-image printing, and uniform error messages (in case something goes wrong).
Storage and Transfer
The C-8080 features dual memory card slots--one for XD Picture Cards and another for CompactFlash Type I and II cards (MicroDrive compatible)--and can hold both media cards simultaneously for flexible storage options. It comes with a 32 MB XD memory card, which can store approximately 16 shots at 3264 x 2448 (HQ, JPEG setting).
Images can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via ultra-fast USB 2.0 connectivity, which means the camera can be connected to any USB-based Windows 98 Rev2Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.
Power and Size
The camera is powered by a lithium-ion rechargeable battery (BLM-1). It measures 4.9 x 3.3 x 3.9 (W x H x D) and weighs 23.3 ounces (excluding battery and storage media).

The C-8080 accommodates the optional B-HLD30 Power Battery Holder. It holds a maximum of two lithium-ion BLM-1 rechargeable batteries for added energy to keep shooting for hours (one BLM-1 battery is included with the camera). Two new conversion lenses have been specially created for the C-8080 Wide Zoom, and both feature a bayonet mount for quick attachment to and removal from the CLA-8 conversion lens adapter that screws into the body of the camera.
