Summary: My wife had one before, left it in the rain and killed it. She has purchased other cameras that didn't catch the action, were too hard to understand, too big or did not have enough battery life. This particular camera is it. Solves all those problems for her. I will buy a 2nd one just in case she looses this one.
Summary: I love, love, love this camera. I lost my Olympus and immediately went on Ebay to replace it. (Didn't even consider checking out a different make or model.)I love the size, flexibility, clarity of picture, and exposure options. Best of all is the video option with audio.
Summary: I needed just the camera as my other two were damaged in separate incidents..so I had the batteries, charger, etc., just needed a working camera. Came fast in the mail, in good shape and I've been taking pictures without a gap from broken to working!
What's with all the negativity? I'd recommend to EVERYONE!

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. People should know that the battery is drained by viewing the pictures after you take them--without viewing the pictures, the battery life lasted 16+ days!! I always get compliments on the pictures I took in Costa Rica.
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. As far as pictures go, it's not a SLR, but it does as good as my older Canon SD400, so she's happy and that's all I was after.
Summary: I bought this camera because we had borrowed a friends and fell in love with it. All the features are great and it is easy to use. Compared to the one we already had as I said it is much more easy to use and you can do alot more things with it. The pictures come out perfectly clear with or without the zoom, as I said before I love it and wouldn't trade it for any other camera. It is the best!
