Summary: I love this camera !!!! I had one before and my better half broke it while fishing so i had to get another one because i love it sooooo much . Don't have to find batteries around the house to charge all the time . Just the the one batterie that came with it .
Summary: Review: I bought the Olymupus Stylus 1040 a couple of months ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive camera. The camers's size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 4 hours. My only complaint is that it was very difficult saving pictures to the SD-rom. Other cameras I've owned have simpler menus and get you to important features easily.
Summary: I bought this camera for my sister. 10 MP is HUGE, though I like the 10 MP quality, I like the option to choose the resolution (which saves memory). Camera is slim and has a fast refresh rate for the big display screen. 'Best Shot' (I think it's called) is a great feature, face detection is useless unless you have the option to only take pictures when a smile is detected. The camera turns on almost instantaneously (>= 1sec) & is ready to take a picture.
Summary: I have had this camera now for a few years and it is still working perfectly! I'm a student and so wan't a camera that I can take out with me and this is perfect due to its slim design which means it easily fits in small bags or a pocket. It also seems a fairly robust camera as the lens doesn't come out of the camera and this is often what gets broken when camera's are dropped.
Excerpt: This Olympus is a stylish and slimline compact camera from a well known and much trusted manufacturer. Unlike most other cameras you turn this one on by sliding a screen down at the front which then reveals the lens and flash. All the button's on the back are flush with the camera in a similar style to some mobile phone keypads and there are a couple of buttons on the top - namely the shutter and zoom which is a small 'switch'.
