Keep looking

  • Summary: I hate this camera. It takes about 2 seconds from the time you push the button for a picture to take. It has caused me to miss a lot of good moments. Others I have asked to take family pics have the same problem. You're better off using your phone.

LCD screen fails; camera now dead.

Thomas T. Amlie, Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: Started out pleased with camera. In fact, bought a second one soon after the first. Then the clouds appeared. On the LCD display a single black dot appeared, and then spread and multiplied fairly quickly. Both cameras now have 4 patches of black "fuzz" on the lcd screen, each about 0.25" across. I don't know if it's the pixels burning out or something else, but it makes the camera frustrating to use, since you can't actually see what is in the picture at those locations.

DO NOT BUY!!!

Lori Danford, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is TERRIBLE!! I'd give it a 0 if I could! I've had it for one year, and I'm yet to take a clear picture. I spent a decent amount on it, so I keep trying to make it work, but all I've done is miss out on a whole year of pictures. Even if you're only 5 feet away from someone, you cannot tell who the person is in the picture! It's riduculous!!! I will never buy Olympus again!!!!

NEVER BUY OLYMPUS AGAIN

G. Gallant "Gina", Amazon

  • Summary: Totally died after 6 months. Nothing but a black screen. I can turn it on, and the lens opens, but then noting. I sent it to the company, but so far, I have not heard anything, and I had to pay to ship it! UPDATE 5/25/12: I sent it to the company, and they said it was all dented so they want $89.00 to fix it (It was only $139 new) The camera was sent to them looking brand new!

Clicks constantly * Only PC compatible? Going back

CottageGardener, Amazon
31 December 2011
  • Summary: Reviews were so encouraging - loved it out of the box. Small size is amazing. And then. Surprise! Can only be formatted with a PC? Are you kidding me? No one thought to mention that anywhere in the description. Charged it with the included wall charger, and - like so many other reviewers have mentioned - it "clicks" constantly. Don't know what it means, but it can't be a good sign. Housing is attractive, but cheap.
