Worst Olympus camera I have yet to use...
2 August 2011
Summary: Avoid. The worst Olympus camera I've seen -- and most of the cameras are pretty good. Very slow when using flash, horrible quality when lighting is not ideal. No in-camera features like cropping or red-eye fix. Uses the old xD cards which are now expensive and hard to obtain. Battery life on AAs does appear to be very good. I can only reccomend this camera if you're getting it at a great price and going to use it almost exclusively for outdoor daytime shots...
Summary: Camera screen has colored lines all over it making the camera useless as the screen is the view finder and you cant see what you are taking a picture of.of course it didn't do it untill just after the warranty expired.
Summary: It has nice features, but I have a list of complaints; First it deleted all of my photos because you must first formatt the XD card before you use it. Second, you can't use your cards from your old digital camera. Only special Olympus cards. Third, the week my 3 month warranty expired it did not reconize my expensive recommended rechargeble batteries and Olympus wants to charge me $65 to repair it. I am done with this camera.
