Terrible

Malcolm, Amazon
22 June 2011
  • Summary: I really should have rated this camera "0" stars. First of all, there is a big lag time between the moment you press the shutter and the time that it takes a picture. Secondly, unless you use the stabilization feature, your pictures are almost always gonna come out blurry. The stabilization feature makes the pictures come out grainy. Please don't make the same mistake that I made.

don't waste your money on this

Temperance Brennan "Angel_F", Amazon
17 May 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera because i lost my previous one. my friend recommended that I buy a 6 mp camera or higher so when i saw this one at the store I got it.what I hate the most is the fact that it does not record audio with your videos I mean that's the most ridiculous thing ever!! I paid around 130 or so for this thing and I am regretting it.

DON'T DO IT......NO AUDIO

R. Kilpatrick, Amazon
15 November 2008
  • Summary: This camera has no audio so every video that I've recorded has NO SOUND!!! That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard (NO PUN INTENDED!). What's the point of having the movie feature if there's no microphone to record the sound??!! I recorded my daughter's 3 rd birthday and I'm absolutely upset that there is no way for me to recapture any of those moments. Buy a different camera.

A serious Battery problem...

Gregory M. Lynch "hangman", Amazon
20 June 2008
  • Summary: As many others have said, this model and several other Olympus cameras have a problem that renders it unusable. I had the typical "Battery Empty" problem. I contacted Olympus service, downloaded an "update" , then the camera quit entirely. The next step is send it in. With no warranty it is not worth any repair charge. Customer service left a lot to be desired as well. With plenty of other choices this camera/brand is not recommended.

DO NOT BUY - MODEL HAS DEFECT

Overstock
2 May 2008
  • Summary: At first I was happy with this camera...decent (not amazing) picture quality, easy-to-operate, mediocre features (can't take a good shot when it's dark out, or move the camera too much when taking photos)...but I noticed that the batteries drained super quick. Now the problem has gotten worse, and newly charged batteries die within a few hours (or even immediately at times), and the camera says "battery dead" and won't turn on.

Don't buy this camera

JC Valdes, Amazon
1 April 2008
  • Summary: This camera has a "battery empty" problem. It doesn't matter how many new batteries you buy, it will continue giving the same message. I bought the camera because of the brand, but this is the last Olympus camera I will ever buy.

Manufacturer needs better disclosure!

styledaraweb, Amazon
16 March 2008
  • Summary: This camera was brought to replace a Sony 3.1 mega-pixel. This camera is horrible and has the nerve to display a "movie recorder" as one of it's "features" but has NO SOUND! What a waste of money. Get something better.

BobR "BobR", Amazon
