Summary: While I'm not particularly knowledgeable about cameras, this Stylus 600 has worked very well for me for a number of years now and provides all the resolution and image quality I've ever required of a camera. One area where it performs particularly well is in battery life; the battery has yet to die on me. One small niggle is the lack of sound when recording video.
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: It is easy to use and I loved that it took up to 5 pictures without the momory card there are times that I could to take a picture and can't becasue my memory card is plugged into the computer and this way I'll never miss a shot
Summary: Compact so it fits in you pocket, high tech enough to dance with it's bigger counterparts. This little camera does it all. I comparison shopped for several weeks comparing and contrasting multiple cameras from cannon, kodak, hp, sony, panasonic, and olympus, and none had features like this, a small size, and in this price range. The only disadvantage below the stylus 710 and 810 is the megapixel count and no image stabilization.
