Summary: Good: - The camera is very simple to operate. - small and can easily fit in your pocket - cheap Bad: - poor Picture Quality - awful LCD display Summery: not recommended if you are looking for something small that gives decent Picture Quality, a little bit better than taking pictures with your cell phone...
Summary: I was so excited to get a new camera after my Nikon was broken, so I decided to try the Olympus. I think that it is a great camera, but I am a picture novice so all of the options are a little overwhelming. The pictures and video are great, but I miss the simplicity of the Nikon. Also, I'm not a big fan of the fact that the directions are in the camera.
Summary: I bought his camera to replace a Canon I had for years before it got sand in it and quit. I saw the price and features of this name brand camera and thought I'd give it a shot. I was expecting a mediocre display, so-so picture quality, etc., and that's what I got. The only real complaint I have with it is the delay between pushing the button, and actually taking a picture. That's VERY inconvenient (and annoying).
Summary: This camera takes mainly good photos straight out of the box. There's no real need to play with the settings which I like. My main use for this camera is photographing people, and I preferred using the standard Auto setting as opposed to the portrait scene setting - in portrait, the pictures were mostly a little too pink. The standard auto setting reproduces skin tones nicely.
