Summary: I have owned Olympus Cameras for a couple of decades, starting with a 35mm which took amazing close up face shots of my children...I could see the hairs on their cheeks! Through the years, and through several Olympus cameras, I have found that Olympus cameras keep going and going.
Summary: I have to say, after reading some of these reviews I don't agree. This is a great size camera that takes nice pictures. Toss it in a bag and go. I don't know of any Digital Camera that works like we ALL expect them too. This is a good camera for the money as well.
Summary: VERY pleased with the product. Light weight, thin, not too bulky, large viewing screen, rechargable battery out lasts regular batteries, great pictures and movies with good sound. No problems, highly recommend. Decent price. Consumer Reports recommends as a "Best Buy".
Summary: The first Stylus 800 I got was defective, when powered on it went straight to an error screen. The merchant replaced it for free. I've had my second Stylus 800 for 10 months. For the last couple months the lens cap has required coaxing to open or close.

Summary: ... over the Stylus mu 410 and C-5500. As light and watertight as the 410, but with twice the resolution. Easier, far lighter, and with a better choice of automatic shooting programs than the C-5500, and with 60% higher resolution. This is our new hiking camera for 2007.
