Excerpt: I personally don’t think that you can have too many cameras. There is a certain camera for every event. I find that trying new cameras helps you to understand what it is you want and don’t want. I bought the Olympus E-500 Digital Camera for so many different reasons. Its going to take forever for me to name all of them. One of the reasons I bought this camera is because it’s one of the best cameras on the market.
Summary: This was a Mother's Day gift and turned my wife into a full blown digital scrapbooker. It's hard to take a bad shot, and has enough settings that the amateur artist can experiment easily/quickly with f-stops and shutter speeds...without wasting a ton of film. There is no video capture, and the small screen is okay for reference but nothing fancy. It will capure using the RAW format, but my wife prefers the largest jpeg for file size issues.
Summary: Great camera for the one thinking going professional. Excellent value for the money. Has enough features and options to get you busy and experimenting for weeks or even months I have own many different cameras, including a basic cannon, but this is by far the best under 300 dollars (bought it used)
Summary: The camera seemed o.k. couple little issues with condition, but no manual. I am a novice slr user, and am lost as to how to use this thing. Asked seller to send manual, but still haven't heard. Will have to buy one for $10.00. Oh well.
Excerpt: Its a very good camera. Takes some time to getting used to and all it can do. for me that is i m not that up on he digital camera s. For someone that knows how to work it use it it most likely will be easier for them. Takes very good pictures..
Excerpt: My husband bought me this for Christmas last year and I love it. Last year I had absolutely no clue what I was doing, but after sitting and reading through the manual that came with it I slowly learned what each thing did and how to go about taking good pictures. The lenses that come with it are okay, but I'm itching for a 50mm lens for portrait work. It's a strong, sturdy camera. I've had no issues at all with dust on the lens. I love it!
Excerpt: After doing months of research and going between the Nikon, the Canon and the Olympus, I found this camera to be the best and give you the most bang for your buck. The kit lenses are great. The only down side I have found is that all the manuals and books are really geared towards the other two cameras. It is difficult to figure everything out from your manual only. I ended up taking a photography class to learn all the manual settings.
Excerpt: I like the feel and weight of this camera, a little slow in when attempting to take action and fast changing subjects. I've taken some very good pictures with camera, for low light you will need a better lens than what comes with this camera. The camera is user friendly, and comes with loads of functions.
Excerpt: Easy to use. Has all the options you could want at more resonable price than the competition. I like the fact that it uses a compact flash instead of an sd card, its less expensive and takes a lot more pictures. The popart setting also makes for great fun photos.
