Summary: I agree with all of the comments on battery life. More troublesome, however, is that the camera completely died after just 4 days, 10 pictures, and 3 battery changes... It will not respond or turn on, and the lens is stuck in the open position. The camera is a complete lemon.
Summary: I'm 13 and so yea... I bought this camera at target because i wanted to upgrade from my out of date hp camera. It was on sale, so I thought it was a good buy. But the camera it self is terrible.
Summary: I have owned this camera for over a year now. First - wow - what's with the huge price increase? I paid $110 in May of 08 and I couldn't recommend it at that price. It takes beautiful pictures - when it works correctly.
Summary: The camera had all the features I was looking for and was quite easy to use. However, when I attempted to download photos from it, I found that it was not possible because the camera caused a power surge in the USB port.
Summary: Batteries left in this camera simply do not retain a charge, even over night. Even when batteries were fresh, camera was good for 3 or 4 pictures before they were exhausted. Camera had to be returned to Olympus TWICE for repair. Focus was poor, colors were lousy. I WILL NEVER BUY OLYMPUS AGAIN!
Summary: This seller, ReRunDeals, deals with derelict and ruined items. The company's customer services are the worst I had experienced in Amazon marketplace and in any other place imaginable in the whole worldwide.
Summary: I despise this camera! It drives me crazy! Within the first 10-20 minutes of trying to figure out how to use it, I went threw 4 batteries! And THEN, the screen funked out! Every time I tried to take a picture, the screen just went black, even though I had no other pictures, and a full battery!
Summary: I bought this camera back in May of 2008 to upgrade from an OLD bulky Fuji that was only a 2 Megapixel & a 3x zoom but still took great pictures. It seems right after I bought this model, the poor battery life reviews started to come in, & if I knew this I never would have bought it.
Summary: We got this camera right before we moved overseas. We threw away the box and could not find the receipt in the confusion of moving. We never got to print or upload any photos because the camera would not focus. Now we are stuck and have to send it off and PAY for it to be fixed.
