How to kill the joy of taking pictures

Lauragais "circle-h", Amazon
24 June 2011
  • Summary: I've been taking pictures ever since I was 8 years old and that is exactly 62 years ago. The worst camera I ever possessed is the Olympus 600 which was given to me as a gift. I find the camera difficult to use because it has no view finder. One might say that this is my fault, I should have chosen one with a view finder, but the problem is that the camera cannot be steadied and the even most minute movement (such as pressing the button to take the picture) will result in...

Silver Casing Defective

TDPM, Amazon
14 October 2006
  • Summary: There is a manufactoring defect with the casing on this camera... the silver material is very breakable. After a couple months of owning this item the battery comparement latch broke off so now I have to hold it closed. The same exact thing happened to me with a similarly designed earlier model (Stylus 300). The design structure of this series is very poor. I have written a letter to the company but they have not acknowledged the problem.

Worst camera ever

R. Hirst "2rummageAmazon", Amazon
14 May 2006
  • Summary: After owning a Olympus 2020 2Mpixel for 4 years I expected a slightly better Olympus with the Stylus 600. Use my digital cameras for auctions, many personal indoor/outdoor portrait photos and many landscape and scenic photos. Maybe there is something wrong with my 600 but I've tried for 3 months to get good photos and only a few are good. The 2020 took great photos, perfect color and light, great balance throughout and minimal red eye.

This is a terrible camera

Aopisa "A Professional Photographer", Amazon
29 December 2005
  • Summary: What a disappointmet! This camera takes awful pictures. Even on the highest image setting the pictures are grainy. My wife has a 4 megapixel Pentax and it the pictures are far superior to the 6 megapixel that Olympus claims for this camera. I like to shoot without the flash in available light. The slightest movement by your subject creates blur. Even if your subject doesn't move there is invariable movement of the camera when your finger presses the shutter.

So I'm not the only one...

Mrs Toad, Amazon
2 July 2006
  • Summary: I bought this camera in November 2005, and found it easy to use. The pictures were generally good, except for the "Available Light" setting - they were VERY poor. However, now the screen has cracked, and is totally useless. I didn't understand how this could have happened as the camera was in a case, inside a bag. I see from other reviews here that I am not the only one to experience this.

Get the 800 instead!

"xxdiddiexx", Amazon
14 February 2006
  • Summary: mmm...well I originally bought the mju 800 as I was not aware of the mju 600 at the time. When I bought the 800 I did feel it was too high a spec for my needs, so when I came across this one at almost half the price of my 800, I swapped. Big Mistake. The camera cannot take any decent pictures. Results are are grainy, blurred, and forget trying to zoom in anything. The quality is even poorer. You can record video, but there is no sound..what's the point of that?!
