Summary: I had a little automatic Canon for 6 years that was great...until it broke. I tried to buy something similar and this Olympus takes grainy pictures quite often. Not always, so I didn't realize I wanted to return it until it was too late to return. It is totally aggravating to see that I've caught a priceless shot...in grainy quality. DON'T BUY THIS LOUSY CAMERA! Unless poor quality photos don't bother you.
Summary: The camera worked, I took some good pictures. Then when the battery died, I tried to charge it. I charged it and put it back in the camera but the camera still wouldn't work. It was too late to return the camera to Overstock because the battery really lasted a long time. Thinking maybe it was a defective battery, I ordered a new one. Still didn't work. The camera turned on, lens went in/out, then the camera turned off.
Summary: I bought this for my girlfriend recently and out of the box all the pictures turn out, grainy, blurry or just solid bright WHITE. The settings shouldn't be the issue straight out of the box, but we messed with them anyway and nothing seems to help. I want to return it but unfortunately it's been over 30 days. I am going to contact Olympus to see if someone there can't take a look at it. I would NOT recommend this camera.
Summary: I only had this camaera for 1 week and it went out of focus,,,so it sits in its box unused not happy with it at all and bouught it on line so its not like i can take it back to the store. I wont buy online again.
Summary: I owned 2 Olympus camera's before this one, and was happy with them overall which is why I chose this camera. I also had great experience with Olympus support on one of my previous camera's. When the lens stopped working properly I sent it in and they fixed it free of charge. Unfortunately my experience with this camera was unlike my 2 previous olympus purchases.
