A clear emphasis is placed on easy handling in this camera as well as adhering to the strict, technical quality standards Olympus is renowned for. For most users and conditions, the automatic shooting mode will suffice. However, the Olympus C-470 Zoom additionally includes eight programme modes for more tricky situations such as portrait, indoor and beach & snow scenes. Users may also switch to movie mode to capture video sequences. Here, recording is only limited by the amount of available memory, so prospective directors can keep the camera "rolling" until the take is complete. Results can then be reviewed and displayed to friends directly on the built-in 1.8 inch sunshine LCD monitor. With its ergonomic interface, these and other features are quickly and easily accessed for no-fuss operation.

A precision 3x optical zoom lens (equivalent to 35–105mm on a 35mm camera) with three aspherical elements brings subjects nearer. For even greater close-ups, users may invoke the seamless 4x digital zoom to provide total magnification power of up to 12x. On the other end of the scale, distances of just 9cm away are easily dealt with in Super Macro mode.
