Faulty battery charger for.

Marilyn Mccloskey, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: The problem is that the cord will not go into the battery charger, so I can't charge the battery at all. since I didn't try to set it up until today, the return period has expired. I assume (perhaps unreasonably) that the rest of the camera is fine, but unless I can get the battery charged, I will never find out.

For what it is it worked great.

panerd, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a mirrorless digital 4/3 rds camera. It has an image sensor about 1/4 the size of 35mm film. A 25mm lens is a normal lens on this camera. The sensor is much bigger than most of the point and shoot digital cameras and offers much better image quality. The camera itself is about half the size and weight of a DSLR but is not a put in your pocket camera. It has no view finder. For the price I got it, it was a good deal. Makes a great travel camera.

Great digital camera for cycle touring

  • Summary: The technology inside with the compact size, not to mention the classic "viewfinder like" make this an ideal camera for my international cycle touring.

Used for a month, so far I love it

Miko, Amazon
2 April 2014
  • Summary: I have only been using it for about a month now, but so far I really like it. The compact design is great, the pictures come out excellent, and I love the tilting screen. There are a lot of modes that I do not use often (all the scene modes) but all of the priority modes I do use frequently and they work as they should. I got a fotodiox lens mount adapter and use my PK lenses on this camera with no problems!

Extreme amateur loves this camera

Meghan M., Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: Serious photographers, please ignore this review. It will infuriate you. This is for amateurs and soccer moms. I'm in NO way a photographer of any kind, but I thought that we should have a nicer camera than our phones for our impending child's birth. I opened the box yesterday and charged it to take a few pictures this afternoon to test it out. WOW is all I can say. I'm taking pictures in auto mode that look as nice as some of my friends' dSLR photos.

A very pleasant surprise.

Douglas McGhee, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this so that I could tiptoe into the micro 4/3 world to see how things were. I'm now happy to say that all expectations were exceeded. I own an ageing Olympus E-510 and was sceptical of the whole pen series of cameras. Now l am a convert. I took the dive because this camera and lens was so inexpensive. After a week I started to plan on my next micro 4/3 lens purchase. Well played Olympus, well played.

Great Resolution but difficult to use

Ms. M, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: This camera can take excellent pictures. Clear, sharp, very high quality. The problems are with things like the battery which is proprietary and should not be overcharged making keeping backups ready a problem. The USB cable is proprietary and if it goes walk about, you have to order a new one. The little door latch for the battery and card is plastic and very fragile. The lens that comes with the camera could certainly have a broader range.
