Summary: I also bought this camera and experienced poor battery life. After reading the reviews I was ready to box it up and ship it back. At the last minute I decided to give it another try and work the batterys. I bought 2 each of every battery that said digital camera.
Summary: Don't really have much to say about it since I am not using it but the price was good and the features were right. I can tell you to not put cheap batterys in it but other than that it works fine.
Summary: This is the 7th digial camera in my family. This is a gift for my youngest son. My experience with my previous digital cameras taught me 2 things. First, to get rid of problem on recharging battery, I need a camera operating with dry cells.
Summary: After searching and searching, and searching for a digital camera online, I decided on this one b/c it was a high MP and a fairly low price. It did take nice pictures, but I was bummed about having to get the special Olympus cards which are quite a bit more than what you can get a regular SD card...
Summary: Like any camera in this price range there will be some drawbacks, but for for a digital novice its ease of use and overall performance are tops. Battery life with disposable lithiums is more than adequate for normal travel use or a day at the beach or theme park. Extended zoom a big plus.
Excerpt: 8 MP , 5x Digital zoom and a reputed brand,a crowd pleasing combination. let me start off by saying what a wonderful camera this is.This was my first camera and a good one. 8MP images come crystal clear The user interface in the camera is easy to understand and one can get accustomed in a few hours...
Pros: A variety of modes to shoot pictures from,camera helps take perfect pics,Good image stabilization .
Cons: poor battery life, macro shots are not satisfying,memory card is a must .
