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: 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: 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: I still have my first digital - a 2Mp Olympus. I always liked the shooting modes that Olympus seemed to excel with in these small digitals, especially the night mode, as it would produce nicely balanced good color shots for indoor photos. The 600 goes way beyond that, with a small size, LARGE screen (2.5" is big anyway, but looks huge on this camera), and TWENTY-FOUR scene shooting modes.
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.
