Default Thining of getting a Olympus Camedia C-5050Z

Hi all


Just a few questions if i may ...

How does the Olympus Camedia C-5050Z handle motor racing. I wan't to take F1 / indy car pics when i go to the track. does the the continous shot taking work well in these conditons ?

I'd also like to take pics of flowers, flowers from chilli plants infact. Some are the size of your pinky finger nail. Will i need to buy any macro lenses to do this or does what comes with the digi handle that fine?

Thanks

Hi

I've never tried the continuous shooting mode, but I've not seen any complaints about it, either.

The super-macro mode on the Oly C-5050 focuses down to about 1 inch (3 cm). I think that's probably close enough to take care of your need.

Default Oh! this will handle it!

James,

This camera should do exactly what you want. I use it for Ice hockey games in the NHL and get great photos using the continuous mode. The trick is to get all of the setting down which will take some manipulation and expiramentation. Good Luck.
