Traveler Digital Camera DC-5080 (5MP with webcam support)

by Keith

Traveler DC-5080

For the last one week, I was eyeing on this new model of Traveler digital camera from Germany. For some reason, it caught my interest when I was shopping at Aldi, when they announced a product to be released this week. The Traveler Digital Camera DC-5080 has a 5-megapixel, sufficiently large enough to take really good quality pictures. In addition, the 1.7-inch LCD colour display allows you to see more clearly. Also, it comes with a 4x-digital zoom, which somewhat I feel it would be better if it were to be an optical zoom instead.

Off from the shelf, this Traveler DC-5080 is only available in Germany. I heard from somewhere that Traveler is also brand-named as Medion in Germany. Some of the accessories that is available from the box are:

  • lithium-ion battery
  • power charger/adaptor
  • carrying case
  • table tripod
  • USB cable
  • picture processing software (in CD)
  • driver software for Windows 98/ME/2000/XP (in CD)
  • driver software for Macintosh from OS 9.0 (in CD)

The digital camera is capable of capturing 5-megapixels images (up to 7-megapixels using interpolation technique). It comes with a 32MB internal memory, with a slot for SD memory card, to increase the storage to 1GB. The LCD screen is a 1.7-inch LCD colour display, illustrating excellent image quality. Furthermore, there is a 4X digital zoom that allows you to take images at a distance. The 5- or 10-second self-timer is also a beauty whenever you need to take self-timing pictures.

What is truly impressive about the DC-5080 is that it can also be used as a webcam. A table tripod is supplied with it, so that it can be mounted and placed on the table. Under webcam mode, the screen automatically changes to 320 x 240 resolution, capturing live motion images at 25fps (frames per second). In addition, the digital camera, when functions as a webcam, uses CCD technology, henceforth, you would expect webcam images to be clearer and sharper than those using CMOS technology.

Besides using as a digital camera, it can also capture live motion pictures and sound, and save it as MPEG-1 format in the memory. Though you may be able to preview the motion clip after recording, you may not be able to hear the sound since the camera does not come with a built-in speaker. Nevertheless, after transferring to the computer, the sound is just like what it is.

Though it may be filled with functions, you will be realised that the DC-5080 is as light as a cigarette packet. Weighing only mere 80 grams (without battery and SD memory card), you will not realise the presence of its weight. This is absolutely practical for travelling.

The Traveler DC-5080 also supports PictBridge technology, which allows you to connect directly to the printer (that supports PictBridge) to perform image selection and printing using the camera monitor screen and controls. DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) support allows you to specify which images you want to print and how many copies of each should be printed.

Guaranteed by the company for three years (lithium-ion batter for 6 months), the digital camera is definitely worth the value for money, considering that it was selling at €79.95 this week when I bought it.

The only thing I am disappointed with the DC-5080 is that it does not have an optical zoom. I would have preferred to have an optical zoom rather than a digital zoom. Other than that, I believe this camera is truly a good bargain, and somewhat a cool gadget to own as well. Very light and handly, you could never go out of your house without it.

EDIT: In response to some who are looking for drivers to this camera, you may download it from here. Note that, this driver is not supported since it is a copy from the CD that I originally have when I purchase this camera.

Below are some pictures of the DC-5080 camera:

Is it possible to buy this camera (DC-5080) on-line. They are out of stock at Aldi.

Al Says: March 29, 2006 at 9:09 am

Not that I know of unfortunately, if we do find somewhere we’ll let you know.

Celine Says: April 16, 2006 at 4:36 am

I bought this camera about a month ago, when it was sold at Aldi and the charger doesn’t work anymore…. And since it doesn’t have normal batteries (AA ones for example), the only solution is to buy a new charger or another camera… :-(

Keith Says: April 16, 2006 at 8:52 am

Since it’s been only a month that you bought the camera, there is high chance that you could get an exchange for it. Though I forsee it may be really troublesome, because the mother factory is based in Germany, you might have to call them or send them an email regarding the fault. You are still guaranteed by the warranty period as set down by the manufacturer. So, instead of getting down to the shop and request for a charger, try getting hold of their support department and request for a new charger, or exchange for a charger.

Martin Says: April 25, 2006 at 3:30 am

Try – they do a universal LiON battery charger, with 13A and car adaptors, for about £17.

Marius Says: May 6, 2006 at 8:05 am

I’ve bought this camera and i’m very pleased how it works. only one think it’s not taking very clear photos but for everyday photos is very good

Keith Says: May 6, 2006 at 9:21 am

I have been using the camera for quite some time, ever since I wrote this article. I have to comment that the output from this camera is excellent. If you are taking outdoor images, the pictures are excellent! There is only problem when the lighting becomes dark, and thus the photos doesn’t appear to look good.

This goes the same, when you use this as a video clip recorder. The mpeg file resolution isn’t great. However, this is supposed to function as a digital camera, nonetheless, isn’t it?

On the other hand, the web camera functionality is a beauty, using CCD technoloy, instead of CMOS.

farahnaz Says: May 15, 2006 at 12:49 pm

i have this camera from denmark.the guide book is in danish
isit possible to get it in english?

Andrea Says: May 30, 2006 at 9:49 am

So overall, do u guys think it’s worth the price it’s selling for?

Keith Says: May 30, 2006 at 4:38 pm

To farahnaz: yes, I think there is a guide book in English. At least I do know mine is in English.

To Andrea: Well, the price is pretty dirt cheap for a digital camera. Of course, we have to consider about the devaluation of the product as time go by.

In fact, even if you do get a CCD webcam, it would have already cost you half that price.

John Kool Says: June 18, 2006 at 6:39 am

The newer version will be in the United States on June 25 at Aldi stores.

Finally a halfway decent camera at a reasonable price $99.99 US.

You do not mention if it has a flash.

Can you tell me this?

Keith Says: June 19, 2006 at 3:24 am

Yes, this camera has a flash.

Choppy Says: June 20, 2006 at 10:43 am

Does the new version take SD RAM?

shelby Says: June 23, 2006 at 9:56 am

i just saw the ad for th Traveler 5MP 6-on-1 digital video camera that is going on sale at Aldi this sunday, june 25th.

what do you think the picture quality for indoor shots on this camera is like?

how long does a Traveler product last?

what US sold company is Traveler comparable to?


Becky Says: June 23, 2006 at 11:22 am

I just saw the ad for this camera in the Aldi flier and it lists that it can be used as a camcorder. Does anyone have any experience using this camera as such? Also, with the 1GB SD memory card added, about how much recording time would that allow? I’m new at this digital camcorder stuff. Thanks!

Karren Says: June 24, 2006 at 10:23 am

I am considering buying the Traveler DC-8600 from Aldi. It costs £180 and has 8.1 mega pixels and 6x optical zoom (8.5 digital zoom). Do you think this is good buy? I’m going to New York and want a good camera.

matt Says: June 24, 2006 at 4:16 pm

HEy everyone i was just wondering how much these cameras cost?

Sam Says: June 25, 2006 at 3:59 pm

I was just wondering if i was to buy this camera – are you able to purchase the batteries in a shop or something somewhat like this or are they unreplaceable.

james d. Says: June 26, 2006 at 7:09 am

i bought my first digital camera from aldis several years ago. it was made by ‘medion’, as i believe, this one is. i recieved excellant service from them. the only problem i had was lack of an instruction book.
i will be buying the latest one to come out of aldis on june 25th.

i have also had trouble with chargers and found that you should let the batteries discharge completely the first couple of times in order for it to recharge properly. i don’t understand it, but i guess the batteries need to be properly broken in.

MIke of Milw. Says: June 27, 2006 at 6:53 pm


We beat he rush and got the first one up here. For the price I ‘m realy amazed by the features and overall fit and polish. I called the 1-800 service line on a Sunday and promptly got a live and very helpful person.

We got the 1Gd SD card off the bat and it provides 30 mins of video @ the highest resolution with med. frame size. Without the card it is good for 2 mins. of video time At the the same approximate settings for still shots it holds about 40 without and 1200+ images with SD card.

At bit about the battery / charging sytem : the lights on the charger do not go out at the end of charge. There was no info with my unit about charging times and such. The 1-800 service line guy Mike said 12 hrs. I did that and the battery icon in the unit seemed to indicate that that a 24hr. charge would have been more appropriate.


Keith Says: June 28, 2006 at 7:12 am

This post is such a hot topic.

Choppy: Not exactly sure which new version are you referring to. If you are referring to DC-5080 model, then it uses SD Card.

shelby, Becky, Karren: I saw the latest camera on sale in Aldi as well. However, I am not sure if it has video recording functionality. Nonetheless, this new model has optical zoom (as Karren has mentioned).

matt: it depends on the model you are looking for. The DC-5080 initially costs about €80. The DC-8600 costs around €280.

Sam: I’m afraid it’s very hard to find battery replacement. The only way that I know you can get a replacement battery is to contact the manufacturer (which is in Germany).

Mike: These are Li-ion batteries. Sometime it is important not to over-charge these batteries, even though they are not Ni-MH or Ni-Cad. A 24 hour charge initial charge seems fine, but not necessary for every subsequent charges.

mapuss Says: June 28, 2006 at 9:28 am

bonjour je viens d’acheter cet appareil chez aldi aujourd’hui (DC-5080) est ce que quelqu’un saurait me dire quelle carte mémoire je dois acheter pour mettre dedans??? je n’y connais rien malheureusement…

james d. Says: June 28, 2006 at 10:47 am

question for MIke of Milw.
I also bought the latest camera from Aldi’s. Can you
tell me where you got the add-on storage. I’d like
to get that.
About the batteries. The ones incluced with my unit are
NiMH batteries. I used energizers while waiting for these
to get charged up. I can see that this unit would go
through batteries very quickly.
I also called the 1-800 service and received excellent service. My camera and the TV were out of sync when trying to view my videos on the TV. I called service to find out
how to set the PAL/ntsc and was told how to do it. Of
course I then found the info in the instruction booklet and felt like an ass.
It’s hard to believe how much you get for the $100 cost
of this unit.

Barry Says: June 30, 2006 at 8:11 pm

I have recently purchased the traveler DC 5080 from Aldi (like so many others) and am very happy with the camera.
The problem I have is that I cannot use it as a webcam.
I have installed the USB drivers as instructed in the manual, selected the PC cam option, got the “connected to computer” on the LCD screen and then nothing. The message remains on the screen and am unable to use the in my networking program. Any advice would be appreciated.

I got bought a camera DC-8600 8.1 mega pixels from Aldi thursday and i have sent it to my son in USA as a gift, i am keeping my fingers crossed it is all that it says it is, we usually buy sony.

I recently bought an DC-5080 Digital Camera from Aldi in Australia, could you tell me where I can get a bigger memory card and spare parts if needed please.

davido Says: July 3, 2006 at 3:20 am

I love my DC-5080, i’ve had it since early March & use it every day, the battery charge lasts “forever” it was inexpensive to buy, small enough to take anywhere at anytime. Ok, it doesn’t do what my Canon Powershot S50 can do, but its my baby, the pics are very good & well worth the fight to acquire it from my local Aldi store.

Adewale Oloro Says: July 5, 2006 at 2:02 am

A friend just bought a DC-5080 for me from France and the user manual is written in French. Can you help me with how I can get the English version of the user Manual please.

Adewale Oloro Says: July 5, 2006 at 2:11 am

Can you send the manufacturer website of the DC-5080 to me please?

catalytic Says: July 5, 2006 at 4:58 am

My mum was kind enough to buy me this camera as a gift.
It does take video with sound, and the quality is really good. Much better than my previousl Kodak digital.

The video quality is on par with for example a camera phone. But the web cam function is really great, I was going to go out and buy a seperate web cam, but I doubt it would have been as good as what this camera puts out.

The only drawback I have found is that it is not the best at taking night pictures. If you do you definately need a full size tripod.
The features are excellent, being able to adjust the contrast and exposure in composition definately helps the endpicture quality. Well worth the $150AU!

For those of you who want the link to an English manual

Out of 10 I’d give this camera a 9.
Optical zoom is needed, although the quality of the zoom is not that bad compared to my Kodak.
The features that this camera has are fantastic, definately recommend this camera to amatuer photographers.

noddy Says: July 6, 2006 at 7:14 pm

bought the dc 5080 camera took video which worked fine on computer but when copied to cd rom the sound disappeared! (when watching on dvd player)happened on disks made using xp and millenium on different computers any suggestions????(also checked on couple of dvd machines)help?

Dave Says: July 10, 2006 at 11:05 pm


Yes this is a great camera but I have the same problem as Bary.
I cant get the PC Cam function to work.

The display says “connected to computer” but this never disappears. Cant get any application to recognize there is a video device connected to the PC.

Has anybody had an “AhhhHaaa” moment to get this to work

Martello Says: July 19, 2006 at 7:18 am

I recenrtly bought a Traveler DC-5080 camera from Aldi Australia and could anyone tell me what format the video is and what software I need to watch the video on my TV

lin Says: July 19, 2006 at 8:38 am


I have just bought the DC-8600, and i cant play my videos on my computer? Does anyone know why, im stuck help ha.

Jerry Single Says: July 22, 2006 at 1:00 pm

I bought the traveler DV5040 5 megapixel (8 megapixel FW interepolation) digital camera/ videocam with sound/ webcam/ audio recorder/ MP3 player/ and portable hard drive for $100., plus a 1GB sd card for $30.00 at Aldi’s.
The camera function has a flash with red eye reduction. The camera can be set to a lower megapixel rating with three quality settings in each category.
There is automatic white balance plus 5 other light source settings It has EV compensation, automatic ISO, a macro mode, 4x digital zoom (I’d rather have optical zoom), a speaker, plug in headphones, self timer of 3 and 10 seconds, NHTS or PAL settings for your type of TV playback, a table/webcam tripod, a belt loop case, 1/2.5 CCD sensor, 64 MB internal storage, 2′ flip out LCD display (High resolution 130k pixels display) and LCD brightness settings, USB connector, AV terminal and cable, Software CD-ROM, earphone jack, lens: F-no. 3.5 and focal length 7.7mm.
Daylight and flash photos are the clearest, and at 5 mega pixels shows very fine detail, including wrinkles (only on anyone over 50; ya right).
I’m not as impressed with the videocam function even at its highest resolution, especially using the digital zoom.
The 4 AA batteries are Nickle Metal Hydride batteries rated at 1800 mAh. Only 2 batteries are used in the camera. I also bought 4 additional batteries elsewhere for $7., rated at 2500mAh.
Re: batteries not showing full charge: New batteries need several complete charges and complete discharges to be at their full power/duration.
Did I get a good buy??? YYYYYEEESSSSSSS!!!

In case the supplied charger fails, any high capacity AA battery can be used (1800 mAh or berrter for rechargables). I personally use duracells when my batteries are charging.

I purchased a Traveler DC-8300 digital camera at Aldi’s in May, 2006. Loved it! So many features (8.1 megapixels, 3xzoom, video clips, voice tags) for so little money ($219). Unfortunately mine was stolen last month. The guy didn’t take the charger or docking station, just the camera. Which will do him no good without those.

Would anyone be willing to part with one of these cameras? I have tried eBay and Amazon and the internet, with no luck. I’ve asked Aldis to contact their warehouse to see if I can get another, or the next model out. So far, no good.

I have a Traveler DC-8600 digital camera that I purchased from Aldi’s a little over a year ago and it’s been the best digital camera that I’ve ever used! Unfortunately I seem to have misplaced my AC power adapter to charge the battery! Luckily, my sister purchased the same brand/make camera and I’ve borrowed her charger a time or two but I’d really like to have my own. Can someone please tell me where I can find another one? I really like the camera better than the one I’ve been using lately but my Traveler battery is completely dead now and I didn’t want to bother my sister again.

Hi, I live in Au and was shopping Aldi yesterday and noticed a Traveler Video Camera, not sure on the model number, but could read it was a 5mp, had 64 internal storage, SD Card/webcam compatible… I have in the past wanted a “Flip” Video Camera, but they are not sold in this country and I believe not compatible with our systems out here… The Traveler seems to be similar to them, I think the price of the Traveler I saw was around $158, but am unsure now if the zoom was digital or optical …have to look again..
Is there anyone in Au who has this camera? and what comments please …. Jan .

graeme Says: June 5, 2008 at 3:02 am

my book of instructions is in french & my french is not good enough to read technical french. Could anyone tell me where I can get instruction in english PLEASE!!

Ian Says: June 15, 2008 at 1:44 am

In answer to Gary yes I had problems. I was unable to download pics using the front USB port. when I changed to the USB port at the back ie direct to the motherboard, I had instant success. My IT man said the front USB could not handle the cable which I found strange coz I can download my other camera using it and a digital recorder. So, Gary, use the rear USB port.

A quick update…for those who are trying to locate a manual for the DC 8600 digital camera…the links earlier are no longer working but I did just download the correct manual in English….

Hope this is helpful and just a second bit of info…the camera itself can be used to charge the batteries…which I discovered after my battery charger stopped working.

Cheers and happy snapping!

Please I have a Traveler digital Camera with megapixel 5.25 that was giving to me by a cousin since few years now. The battery went down and I lost it while I was searching for where to get a match. The camera model is C5300 and the DC IN is 5V. Please where can I get a replacement of the battery because I love the camera.
I live here in Leuven,Belgium.

AVOID THIS BRAND. I would avoid this brand of camera at all costs. I purchased a Traveller camera about 3 years ago, it broke,I sent it back and got a new camera. This also broke and so I sent it back aswell. This broke too. This continued and after the third time, according to the warranty, I was eligible for a refund. I asked for this and was ignored, instead recieving a new camera….. In total I returned a camera about 6 times until I just eventually gave up. Each time the camera was new. Each time the fault was different, althouugh all a software problem. AVOID THIS BRAND.

I have this camera, and I love it. Though it looks like a pretty mundane point-and-shoot digital camera, it’s surprisingly great at taking lush photos, which will have deep saturation and high contrast. Photos taken with flash (day or night) even look great, as compared with my other Traveler digital camera where some areas become washed out. The limited buttons might give you a hard time in becoming familiar with its interface, though, but it’s worth the price.
