Olympus announces the new Camedia C-50. The C-40 follow-on has the 1/1.8", 5 Mp CCD and 3x optical zoom. Of course, it uses the new xD-picture card to store the images or the QuickTime Motion JPEG movies. The Camedia C-50 has full automatic mode, for quick shooters but full manual setting is available too.
