Olympus Camedia 2020 
C-2020 Zoom 
The CAMEDIA C-2020 Zoom is a camera of firsts: the first Olympus filmless digital camera to shoot color or black & white images and the first Olympus camera with the capability to shoot up to 60 seconds of QuickTimeTM movie. 

But the C-2020 Zoom is also an advanced camera, for an advanced photographer. Based on the stylish design of the award-winning C-2000 Zoom, the C-2020’s high-resolution 3x zoom lens (equivalent to a 35-105mm zoom on a 35mm film camera) and 2.11 megapixel capacity capture beautiful, 24-bit color photo-quality images. 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 more user-friendly menus and controls.  

With these improvements, its robust software package, and its award-winning heritage, the C-2020 is also bound to be another first—your first choice in a filmless digital camera.
