Camera is awesome!!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: My daughter gave me this camera when she upgraded to a newer model. I have begun using this camera rather than my regular camera that uses film and processing. This is so much easier and less expensive. It takes 2 AA batteries. This is a very simple camera to use. It takes the best pictures and I have learned how to transfer them to my computer via the usb cord that came with the camera. It has a flash and a zoom that pretty much makes taking a picture fool proof.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera two Christmases ago for my then 13 year old.....Yes it was her first Digital.....When she wants to focus on her subject .....She can not see what she is trying to focus on because the screen is way to dark.....She loved it when she received it.....But by one week later she was telling me she wished I had bought one like mine (which by the way... was a bit more expensive).... Because not only could she not see her subject.....
Great starter camera and one of the few with a good super macro mode

Summary: Great basic camera with a super macro mode. That is actually what Olympus calls it and it is only available on certain models of their cameras--most of them are discontinued as this one. Several newer models have the feature also, but with a much longer focal distance so rather than getting a minimum focal distance of 0.8 inches it is more like 2 inches. This is an easy to use camera that uses 2 economical AA batteries or rechargeable ones if you prefer.
Summary: I purchased this Olympus 535 Zoom camera because it had so many more features than my existing one. When I first received my camera I was so excited to get started to use it. I discovered I did not get everything needed to be able to operate it. I was missing the cable to transfer pictures to my computer. I bought the cable and I still could not use it. I contacted Olympus Support but they no longer support that model.
Summary: While not the highest megapixel rating, the diminuitive camera packs a lot of features, well laid out controls,and a semi tiny screen. There is no VF, so you need to be able to use the screen. Options like zoom, portrait, close up are all on the master control dial. Everything is "human engineered" with not a lot of stupid features that no one needs, or complications that you will never use. It is a "user's " camera.
Summary: Whats really great about this camera is it's easy to use function wheel. there is a setting for self picture,landscape,night shot's and a video feature. the camera is also easy to get your pic's off of. you simply plug it in to your pc useing a usb cable,a screen will pop up and load your pictures. If there were a dislike about this camera that i would have is that it uses double a batteries in stead of a rechargeable power supply.
Summary: The Olympus D-535 is an easy to use digital camera that gives very sharp pictures. The 3.2 Megapixels will allow prints to at least 8x10 inches(the largest I have had made). Even at the lowest quality setting good 4x6 inch prints are possible without using a lot of memory. It gives super performance in close up photography, with the lens being as close as an inch and a half or so.
Summary: I love this camera, which is almost brand new. It perfectly fits the bill for what I intend to use the camera for (work). Not every digital camera needs to have 12 megapixels,a 4" screen and 4 gb of memory. Great product for the money.
Summary: This is the fifth or sixth or seventh digital camera I've bought, so I'm starting to consider myself something of a minor authority. While I adore my Fuji Finepix 2800Zoom, I wanted something smaller, stowable, and more "rough and ready" for a 3-week trip to Europe this year. Olympus cameras are excellent quality and excellent durability; this 4.6 ounce beauty is a marvel! It goes in a purse or a pocket.
