Question about Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Olympus C-8080 sticks at f8.0

My Olympus C-8080 WZ will not allow me to close the shutter beyond f8.0 in any mode. Works fine from f2.4-f8.0 but that's it. Any ideas?

You're confusing aperture with shutter speed but your camera is operating normally. The C-8080's smallest aperture is f8 and cannot go further.

The ranges available are:-

Wide: F2.4, F2.5, F2.8, F3.2, F3.6, F4.0, F4.5, F5.0, F5.6, F6.3, F7.1, F8.0
Tele: F3.5, F4.0, F4.5, F5.0, F5.6, F6.3, F7.1, F8.0

Shutter speeds are:-

15, 13, 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3.2, 2.5, 2, 1.6, 1.3, 1, 1/1.3, 1/1.6, 1/2, 1/2.5, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8, 1/10, 1/13, 1/15, 1/20, 1/25, 1/30, 1/40, 1/50, 1/60, 1/80, 1/100, 1/125, 1/160, 1/200, 1/250, 1/320, 1/400, 1/500, 1/640, 1/800, 1/1000, 1/1250, 1/1600, 1/2000, 1/2500, 1/3200, 1/4000 sec

I cut and pasted the above figures rather than typing them all from:-

Olympus C-8080, everything works except the shutter release. I press the shutter button, auto focus is done but "no shutter release". Any ideas? Derek


Does the shutter button feel like it's contacting twice as you press it in? if not, the spring disk in the switch is split; It has happened to me on other cameras on several occasions. Solution is to replace the switch.

If it works otherwise I would suspect the ribbon cable. They can get loose, or the contacts can get oxidized. I don't know specifically about the c-8080, on some cameras the contacts are tinned, which can oxidize. In that case it's a matter of gently rubbing the contact strip with a paper eraser until the contacts become shiny. Of course, that means disassembling the camera ;)

You've probably retired this camera or don't have it anymore but in case you still have it, I hope this helps a bit.

My F470 Fuji Fine Pix takes stripey pictures but when it is in movie mode it is fine


Your cameras shutter is sticking. lines on photo's or over exposed photo's are due to the shutter not closing completely over the lens.
Video is fine because it does not use the shutter.

The shutter will require cleaning.

AF Illuminator


The AF illuminator allows the auto focus system to focus on dark subjects. When the shutter button is pressed half way, the AF illuminator will light up the subject. The default setting is “ON”.

IESP auto focus


iESP is the default auto focus setting for the C-8080 Wide Zoom camera. It uses a contrast detecting system to analyze the entire image by comparing the subject against the background to achieve focus. When the shutter button is pressed half way on the C-8080 Wide Zoom, the AF target mark automatically moves to an area of the image where it finds the optimal contrast.
