Summary: Needed to replace a Lumix point and shoot because the lens stopped opening. This has turned out to be a good replacement. It is a nice size and has some excellent features. I especially like that I can fix red-eye right on the camera rather than waiting until after I have downloaded the pictures onto the computer.
Summary: It is a nice light camera to put in a purse. It is relatively easy to use if but the manual with the small print is not so easy to follow because the instructions are scatterd throughout the book.
Summary: Great little camera, I lost mine at a Comic-Con in Phoenix in May. I immediately ordered another one exactly like it, it came complete with all accessories and a leather pouch within days of buying it, far sooner than I expected. I am very satisfied with the camera, seller, and Amazon.
Summary: Buyer BEWARE on this camera. I only used this camera 7(SEVEN) times, one day i decide to use it and it did not turn on, power up. Thought it was the battery, CHARGED IT, still did not work, purchased new battery, still did not work. Reading on-line reviews and disappointments only verified my experience. I feel that this model may have production problems and the model is not perfected as a friend of mine experienced the same problem.
Summary: I like the camera in general. It does the job for what I need it to do. I'm not a professional, I don't take snapping pictures as a serious hobby... Half of the options I don't even use. the only thing that is a little irritating is that it does Not take pictures fast enough, so sometimes you miss that moment... It is an old model (discontinued), so that should tell you something. But it works great for me to take on our trips and take pics with my daughter.
Excerpt: I am a person that loves to take pictures all the time. I tend to carry a camera in my purse wherever I go. When I asked for a new digital camera for Christmas last year I was not surprised to find an Olympus under our tree since my dad loves Olympus cameras. It is an average sized digital camera but the screen in the back it pretty large. This makes it easy when I hand my camera to my four year old niece for her to see what she is taking a picture of.
Excerpt: When I first started looking at cameras I was continiously told by people to not by an Olympus but never really given a reason. To this day I still don't know what they were talking about because I love my Olympus camera. I purchased it on a great sale right before Christmas one year and have been using it ever since. I'm not a professional photographer nor am I trying to be one so the Olympus allows me to literally point, click and shoot. I get great results.
