Summary: unfortunately this is the worst camera I've seen, the purchase and the disappointment was so great that sold two weeks before, personally I do not taste like pulling the photos, videos anything I liked. I'll never try this brand for the cameras.
Summary: Terrible camera pictures are fuzzy takes a long time to recognize faces. Tried calling olympus support line they told me to buy a new battery that cost from THEIR website only that cost $22 I told them to go to hell NEVER buy from olympus
Summary: I bought this camera over a year ago. I had just had my first child and wanted a new camera to capture all the amazing things she was learning everyday. So I looked into some cameras and bought this one. Big mistake! Its horrible. The pictures came out horrible. I've had a few point and shoot cameras - so I played with the setting and tried to figure out why I couldn't get a decent picture. It was just the camera. It also isn't really pink at all.
Summary: Olympus cameras USED to be excellent -- this was my fourth one, bought entirely on the basis of my previous experience. How wrong I was! The camera is slow to focus, and focuses inaccurately. It is GLACIALLY slow to take a picture -- you know, you push the button, and when an engineer in Japan decides it's time to take the picture, the camera clicks. Usually (but not always.) Maybe I had a lemon, but the macro capability was ...well, incapable.
Summary: This camera is piece of junk. So donot waste your money on it. After few months of use the lens stop extending out. Try to call olympus twice but the wait time was so long that had to hang up....
Summary: What a piece of junk! Please don't waste your money on this camera. I bought this camera for a trip, before there were any reviews, and regret it everyday. The photos are ALL awful, grainy, and a lot of them out of focus. No matter what settings I used the photos weren't crisp or even clear. I contacted Olympus about this camera and they weren't any help.
Summary: I have always liked Olympus and bought this thinking it must be OK. It is a nice looking camera,small, nice display, good user interface. Bad news is it takes lousy pictures, fuzzy and out of focus. i've tried all the resolutions from 12M down to 1M and normal and fine compressions. i've tried in bright light, dim, with flash, without flash and in all the modes from antishake to face detect etc. all the pictures look slightly out of focus.
Summary: No matter how you set the settings, the picture quality is grainy, the LCD screen is awful, and it isn't easy to use. Don't even think about taking decent pictures in anything other than full sunlight--this camera chokes in lower light. We were so dissapointed with this camera that we bought another Cannon two months after we bought this. We should have just bought a Cannon to begin with!
Summary: Typically I read the reviews and just go with gut instinct. Most of the reviews here are bad, and here I am adding another one. I got the camera to replace the Fe 4010 model my cat poured water all over. I figured they look the same, just a model number off, how could it hurt? I got the camera very fast, and was so excited, and could tell from the very first shot, it wasn't what I wanted. The shot was blurry, doesnt adjust well to light, and has a hard time focusing.
