Summary: been needing new camera for some time, owned an old Olympus whose time is pased. like: more solid than old camera but not too much heavier whoping zoom capabilities does not go in small pockets but for me thats OK flash much better than old camera macro capabalities much improved large screen works with AA betteries dislike:SWALLOWS BATERIES LIKE CRAZY(suppose because of big screen) regular additional viewfinder would be nice Would like to be able to connect additional...
Summary: The camera takes very nice pictures. The only thing that wish it had was a battery that could be charged by actually plugging the camera via a camera power line. That said, all else is just fine. I fish a lot (Saltwater) and it is a "hardy" little camera.
Besides always replacing batteries, its a great camera.

Summary: Its a very nice camera, but i should have paid more attention when it came to the part about the battery cause it goes QUICK.Should have gotten one with a charger. Besides the battery it takes great photos and very easy camera to use.
Summary: I should probably say that I am not a professional photographer, but I have been tinkering with photography for a short while and I chose this camera because it seemed to offer a little more shooting choices than a simple point-and-shoot. I mainly use the manual function on this camera to strengthen my manual shooting abilities, but I also use the automatic settings sometimes as well.
Summary: Good pictures but the flash is slow and there seems to be some lag between pictures. People complain about AA batteries but, extras are easy to carry, cheap, and readily available. Probably worth spending a little more and getting the next level camera.
Summary: This camera can be a good starting point for someone who wants to explore photography. Pros: 1) Lots of manual features 2) Very decent optics (for the price paid of course) 3) AA batteries, so that you never run out of power Cons: 1) It is not a camera to use in low light conditions. It's just not, as the flash recharges within 10 seconds! 2) 100 shots per set of batteries. Spare batteries should be always handy.
