The Olympus Camedia C-40 Zoom is a digital camera released by Olympus in 2001. In some markets it is also known as the D-40 Zoom.

The shape of the camera is more square like compared to the rectangular body of most cameras. This was an effort to reduce to size to make it more pocket friendly. The height did increase slightly to compensate. It still does looks similar to previous Olympus Camedia digital or even their older stylus film cameras with the sliding front lens cover that also acts as a power switch. Sliding open the cover reveals a f/2.8 - f/4.8; 2.75 - 20.3 mm lens which has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 35 - 98 mm. That give it a 2.8 x zoom. A traditional optical viewfinder is available along with a 114,000 pixel 1.5" color TFT screen.

It features a 4 megapixel 1/1.8" CCD sensor, that produces a maximum image size of 2272 x 1704 pixels in either JPEG or TIFF. A movie mode is available that can take short video clips. There are two modes; HQ 320 x 240, with a maximum of 30 secs, and SQ: 160 x 120, with a maximum of 140 secs. They are stored in a .mov format.

Connectivity options include USB for computer transfers, a composite video out for television display. The camera uses SmartMedia for data storage and can be powered by a single lithium CR-V3 or two x AA batteries.
