Summary: I'm very surprised by the negative reviews. I took this camera all over the world--literally! I was doing field research on biological reserves in Costa Rica, ie. NO electricity. The camera last the full 16 days I was there.
Summary: My mom really likes Olympus, so figured I'd get her this one and she really loves it. Only downside any of us have found with it is it will only take 15 second video clips on the 640x480 setting. It will run till the battery or XD card is full on 320x240, but quality really suffers in that mode.
Summary: Ok. I love this camera. I didn't order it online, but I kind of feel morally obligated to review it on here after my experiences with it. It takes amazing pictures. There is a macro mode where you can take incredible close up pics of anything (food looks amazing).
Summary: I bought this camera for my daughter. She wanted a small camera that could be easily carried with her and this is just the thing. It takes good pictures and is the envy of the family (I use a much fancier digital SLR, but it is far too large for taking to every event where a picture opportunity...
Summary: Great camera for everday use of a digital...large screen...very easy to use! Great gift idea for someone who wants and easy to use camera that is not bluky to travel with....love the recharable battery!
Summary: I've had this camera 6 months. It's a great camera for the typical "point-and-shoot" user. It seems comparable to other family cameras I've seen. I recommend it, if the cost is reasonable. In fact, Grandma liked my camera so much I bought her one. She loves it too! The optical zoom is good.
Summary: I was looking for a small camera that allow me to take quality pictures but I did not want to spend a lot of money. THIS CAMERA WAS THE ANSWER. I've had this camera for the past 4 months and everyday I'm more convinced that is the best investment I've ever made, I never leave the house without it,...
Summary: I Bought this camra to replace a former one that never gave me clear pictures 10 MP (fuzzy) and even in it's good days was hard to operate. I was turned off to digital cameras untill a friend bought the Olympus and let me try it, I had to have one after that.
Summary: This is a great little camera. Great size and very easy to use - very intuative set-up so very little reading of the manual is necessary. Only complaints is picture software that comes with camera doesn't seem email friendly.
