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 at reasonable prices. The problem I have with this used unit is there is obviously a short. If you you leave the battery in the camera it will be dead in a day or so.
Summary: I've owned numerous Olympus cameras, and our family uses them to take photos and videos for family DVDs. Being able to take 640x480 video at 30 fps is the main feature I'm looking for. The specifications said the camera takes 640x480/30fps video, but you have to read the fine print in the instruction manual to see that 640x480 video is capped at 10 seconds. It's difficult to make much use of a 10 second video!
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. Even the look of the cam is very stylish. this performs very sweet in Day light and even in low light... the problem creeps in at nights... whatever mode you use... whatever settings you change...
Summary: It has everything that I wanted in a small digital camera. I also have a larger olympus. the big dispointment in this camera is a major faut. I is impossibleo see the imahe when in brigt light. A very majr fault since it is just guesswork composing a picure. My other Olymps has a 'thru-the- lens feature for this situation. I'd really like to return the camera because of this feature.
