scuba diving pics... here i come!
9 June 2011
Summary: I bought this camera for my cruise this year. Lastyear I watched from the beaches while everyone had waterproof cameras, this year i'll be able to scuba dive & get those same great pics underwater. Olympus is known to be the best and i'm looking forward to having that experience.
Summary: I had an Olympus camera that broke I got this as a replacement The first one had a view finder in addition to the LCD screen, a feature I liked THis one only has the LCD screen which is difficult if not impossible to see in bright light. So it is hard to line up your shot!
Summary: So I read A LOT of reviews of many different cameras before I settled of this one (I also looked at: epson, sony, kodak) and I settled on this camera for many reasons: 1. size- its big enough to hold securley but small enough to easily carry in my bag, or in a pocket 2. for everything it offered it's affordable... other cameras with these features such as picture style and photo album come in cameras in the $400 range 3.
Summary: The good: Takes decent pictures for a camera in its price range. It is small. It is weatherproof, which is a very nice feature. Looks nice too. The large LCD is nice for taking pictures. The bad: Very poorly designed LCD in that it uses a very thin piece of plastic to protect it. It is VERY easily broken and takes very little pressure to bend the plastic covering. If you buy this camera, do NOT carry it in you pocket.
Summary: I've had my Olympus camera for 4 months now and have taken over 1000 photos. I must say that while I'm thrilled with its superfast startup time, compact size and ease of use, I'm very unsatisfied with the photo quality. Outdoor photos are quite good - when good light is available. Indoor photos are a very poor though. The flash makes close images very bright and background images very dark. It can't seem to blend the two together.
Summary: This is my fourth digital camera... and my 2nd Olympus digital camera... Pros: Light and small, huge view screen on the back, good clear pictures on screen, but I didnt love the way they came out on paper (even when I took it to a photo center). Super zoom, all 26 settings ensure that you get the right shot... you just have to know which one to use on the spot =0) Cons: I got this camera for Xmas and after my recent trip to Hawaii it no longer wants to zoom.
Summary: I love this little camera. I have just come back from a trip across four continents, and I can tell you that I could not have wished for a better camera. Now, I don't want to mislead you, the photos will turn out blurry at first. If you use the anti-shake feature, you are limited in HOW the photos come out (resolution, megapixels, color).
Summary: This is my second digital camera. I started with an HP 318 - a nice starter camera. When I decided to step up I did not research well enough. I get some very good shots with the 600, but the lack of a viewfinder on a sunny day is an insurmountable problem. It is worse than shooting blind because all you see in the viewfinder is your own reflection.
Summary: I bought this Olympus after my Canon S400 died (yet another victim of the "memory card error" problem). In addition to its compact size, I started to really enjoy its continuous shooting mode to take action shots of my kids in their various sports events like swimming and running. The old Canon used to be able to shoot about 6 or 7 shots in burst mode before it would pause for several seconds while it stored the pictures on the memory card.
Summary: I was excited when I first bought this, my third Olympus digital. I upgraded from the D-540 because I wanted more megapixels, was intrigued by all the extras (which I agree are cool), and wanted to pass on my old camera to my son so I'd get better pics of the grandkids in Australia. Okay, I should have read the specs more carefully. The camera comes without a memory card. No problem, I had a couple of 128 xd cards from my old camera.
