Summary: I purchased this camera about a year ago and found it to be pretty good. There is one weakness, if you take a picture in low light where you need the flash and the subject is more that 15 feet away it comes out dark. My previous digital camera an Olympus 350 I believe does better much better in low light. On the other had the previous camera tended to white out in sun light.
Summary: I like the feel of the camera, meaning your hands fit well when taking pictures. I like to video option because my last Stylus did not have this option. Still weather-proof which is great for the random weather in MN. Easy to use and play around with. Love the color options to choose. All in all good purchase and save money if you buy from B&H instead of a store that carries this product.
Pros: Durable, Easy-to-use, Good Value, High Quality
Summary: I just returned from 5 days kayaking in the Kenai Fjords of Alaska, and I used the Olympus 830 as my main water surface camera while taking pictures from my kayak. The camera held up quite well to the wet weather and I am quite satisfied with the quality of the pictures that I have downloaded so far, especially the ones at close range. On the downside, the LCD playback screen was somewhat tough to view while outdoors, but which ones aren't?
Summary: This camera has a lot of the same items as our old Olympus - but is even better. Bigger screen, the style is easy to carry, and it takes great pictures. My child just graduated preschool and the "videos" are great!
Summary: I bought this because I really needed a small camera to carry around. I have larger ones but they always seem to end up staying home because nobody (including me) wants to carry them around and I was really nervous that this was going to be another crappy camera, I already gave my nieces and nephews the old crappy ones to play with.
Summary: okay so i have concern. With this camera when i have the stabilizer on and i take a picture it makes a weird noise. Is it my camera or is it supposed to make a weird sound. If anyone knows PLEASE RESPOND BACK TO THIS MESSAGE. Over all.. it takes really nice and clear pictures and i like the features, i just don't how to use them yet.
Summary: I'm no camera expert or even an experienced photographer but I am so happy with this camera. It is compact and easy to use and I think that it takes really nice pictures. The only suggestion I would make to the manufacturers is that the menu setup took a little getting used to and could probably be simplified. Overall I love the ease of use, picture quality and the orange color I chose!
Summary: I've had this camera for about a month now and I am really pleased with it. It is easy to use right out of the box. I read the instructions to expand my knowledge but the functions were pretty intuitive. Some other reviews have mentioned that the battery doesn't last long, but I haven't experienced that problem. I've used the camera on several occasions and have not yet re-charged the battery. The only thing I have to get used to is the zoom button.
Summary: I love the features, especially the image stabilization. You have to love the stabilization or you should buy the 820 for a lot less $$. I played with the 820 at Best Buy and the 830 will take a sharper picture, especially on full zoom. The downside is that the camera uses up battery power rather quickly so you may want to purchase a spare battery. The camera does not come with a memory card at all so plan on getting one, and a case is a good idea too.
Fijne compacte camera. Is handig in de bediening. Er zitten veel verschillende opties op om foto's te maken bij zonsondergang, portretfoto, binnenshuis enz. Met het flitslicht worden foto's soms...

Summary: Fijne compacte camera. Is handig in de bediening. Er zitten veel verschillende opties op om foto's te maken bij zonsondergang, portretfoto, binnenshuis enz. Met het flitslicht worden foto's soms wat overbelicht. zonder flits is het weer te donker en moet je de camera ook goed stil kunnen houden anders krijg je bewogen foto's. Maar over het algemeen kun je er zeker goede foto's mee maken. ook zit er de optie filmen op. Ik vind dit zelf een erg leuke optie.
