The Olympus C-8080 WZ is a digital camera model manufactured by Olympus. It was first announced on the opening day of the 2004 Photo Marketing Association Annual Convention and Trade Show. As of that time, the C-8080 was set to be Olympus’ first eight-megapixel digital camera for the high-end consumer market.

One key feature that is described in the name is the optical zoom technique used in this camera. Most compact zoom cameras use the zoom functionality for telephoto work where one details in on a remote subject. This camera allows one to set up the lens to work as a wide-angle lens which comes in handy for group or landscape photography. It has a high resolution lens with 5x zoom (7.1 - 35.6 mm) - equals (28 – 140 mm) in 35 mm film format - and an aperture of 2.4 for wide angle and 3.5 for telephoto. Focus range: normal 0.8 - inf.; macro 20 – 80 cm ; super-macro up to 5 cm.

The metering modes for exposure are: ESP, center-weighted, multi-metering and spot. The metering target mark on the screen can be moved in 13 positions in spot mode. For absolute control a live histogram can be activated and the histogram target mark can be placed in 10.000 different positions. An AEL button can lock the metered exposure.

The camera has two sensors for AF: one is based on contrast detection, the other one on phase-difference detection (P-AF). The metering settings for the focus are: iESP, spot, full time AF, P-AF and MF, macro and super-macro. The AF target mark can take 9 positions in spot mode.

Movie clips: 640 x 480 and 320 x 240 both 15 frames per second. Length is only limited by the storage card.

The camera accepts xD-Picture Cards (necessary for panorama shooting), CompactFlash type I and II and IBM microdrives with two slots. Copying to another slot is possible in the camera. Data storage is available in TIFF, RAW and JPEG format. Data transfer connectivity is USB 2.0.

The 8080 has a 4.5 cm tilting sunshine-LCD of 134,000 pixels and the electronic viewfinder has 240,000 pixels.
