Short Life: 3 Years

  • Summary: Mine is the Olympus U 700 All-Weather 7.1 Megapixels. I loved this camera and do not know what the normal lifespan of a camera like this is. It lasted 3 years. It just suddenly "died", the screen went blue with a few numbers on it.

  • Summary: I was a camera salesman at circuit city for two years until they went out of business. I bought this camera a year after it was released when it was on open box. I was unaware how much price retention the camera had, I paid only $107 for the camera when it was selling for over $300 on amazon.

olympus 740

John Anderson, Amazon
11 February 2008
  • Summary: I have purchased 3 of the 740's mainly for the 5x optical and wish they did not discontinue this model. It does everything I need in a ultracompact digital camera. Great camera and great service from Amazon with putting me in touch with reputable sellers. Thanks John Anderson

Not for the price

Reviewing Parent, Amazon
26 December 2007
  • Summary: I usually follow Consumer Report in everything I buy but decided to go off the beaten track this one time as I thought their choices were out-dated. I should have gone with their reviews. Maybe I don't know how to use this but I have never taken so many blurry pictures in my life.

not fast enough

Apple Scruff, Amazon
1 December 2007
  • Summary: I have had my Olympus 740 for about a year. I mostly take photos of my now 18 month old. I usually get photos of where he just was because it takes so long to take the picture! Also, if I take pictures in the school gym, like for the school concerts, they ALL come out blurry.

Not the Best Indoor Pictures

Amazon Fan, Amazon
13 November 2007
  • Summary: Takes great outdoor pictures. Indoor pictures are not the same. I took more blurry indoor pictures from this camera than all my cameras combined. Recommend to leave the flash on at all times to minimize this problem.
