The C-2020 Zoom is Olympus's first filmless digital camera to shoot color or black-and-white images. It's also the first Olympus camera that can shoot up to 60 seconds of QuickTime movie. This higher-end digital camera is for the photographer who wants to move beyond standard point-and-shoot quality without sacrificing a user-friendly interface.
Other advanced features include fully automatic and true manual controls for focus, white balance, and exposure; a new wide-view 1.8 LCD, for easy viewing at any angle, even in direct sunlight; a wireless remote control; a new power control dial and better power efficiency; and onscreen menus and controls. The built-in flash has five modes, including red-eye reduction, fill-in, and flash off to match any lighting situation. Also included are a 12-second delay self-timer and a date imprinting function.

If you're a point and shoot buff or looking for high tech manipulation, you'll find great satisfaction in the Olympus C2020. I really wanted something compact for travel and outdoor adventure, (a big attraction to this camera in contrast to others), but don't let it's nice small size fool you, it's cram packed with advanced technology. Under a mulititude of lighting situations the results were consistantly top quality. I would, however, recommend purchasing the software application, ThumbsPlus 4.0 for Windows by Cerious Software. It's the best of all the basic photo manipulation and archiving software I've found, a must for all the photos you'll end up taking. It's reasonably priced, easy to use, and full featured for even the most discriminating photo professional.
The Olympus C2020 is the by far the BEST digital camera I have ever owned. The resolution is near the quality of 35mm print film and the features are many while being very intuitive in operation. The camera is not tiny, but is very small and easily carried around. Although the strap position causes it to hang at an unusual angle, it is still VERY portable!
I would recommend this camera to anyone looking for a very good digital camera.
The software the Olympus includes with the camera is pretty good too, the basic Camedia software is easy to use and reasonably powerful and I'm having a great time with the Adobe PhotoDeluxe that was also included.
Complaints are few...as noted in other reviews, the camera hangs at a strange angle and my (rather long) nose does hit the LCD leaving smudges. Make sure you remove the lens cap before turning the camera on, or the camera will do a strange little dance trying to push the lens through the cap.
Aside from those nits, this is a very well designed camera with a quality feel to it.
Just wait til you see the pictures it takes!
