Okay for the reason I purchased it

Summary: I have another identical model, so I know my issue is a malfunction of the used unit I purchased and not the model as a whole. The camera is great. Good optics, weather resistant, fits in a pocket - and Olympus sells underwater cases pressure rated to 40 meters for most of its point & shoot cameras...
Summary: i spend so much money on this camera, hoping that it would be worth the investment. However, i end up with a mediocre camera with a lot of problems (lighting, blurs, and bad quality pictures). I would suggest people purchase some other camera.
Summary: For the money (I paid about $300) and have been using in for about 6 months in a variety of situations, it is not a good deal. I bought it for the water resistancy, which is about the only good thing besides the size. The LCD is impossible to see in bright light.
Summary: I bought this camera after doing a lot of comparison shopping. I find the camera to be just fine although nothing spectacular. The pics are good but not great. The scene guide is great for an amature like me. The dual-image stabilization seems to work very well.
Summary: I have used this camera in a variety of situations and it doesn't disappoint. The pictures are clear, the zoom capability is a real advantage over the normal 3X optical zoom, and the closeups are awesome.
Summary: First things first... This camera truly has all the features that were advertised... the dual-image stabilization... the shadow adjestment technology... all these work very well... This one slips so comfortably into pocket that sometimes you forget that you carrying a cam.
Summary: I owned a kodak- then a canon - and was happy with my photos- I bought this becuase of the greater zoom capacity - but the photos SUCK!!! the outdoor ones have a white glare to them - and in a multipurpose room -(at my grandson's promotion ceremony)- I could see nothing - too dark - I wish I had...
Summary: 1) A view finder is a must! Cannot see the subject in the LCD screen in bright light and is totally worthless outdoors. (Olympus says to change the screen contrast. No measureable improvement.) 2) Battery does not last long, especially if using the flash much. 3) No 12V auto charger available.
