Summary: I researched several cameras and went with the Olympus Stylus 9000. I took 6 photos with the camera and it totally shut down. Every time I power it up, it beeps and shuts off. I thought it was the battery so I tried a new battery and that did not work, thought maybe it was the charger not charging the battery but without buying another charger, that is hard to prove. I finally gave up and contacted Olympus.
Summary: this is my 3rd olympus camera purchase. i stuck with the brand thinking that perhaps my first two experiences were bad luck or poor care of my camera. i have owned this camera for less than 6 months and it is already in need of repair/replacement. the lense is exended (in camera mode) and will not retract. the camera will not take pictures, but does allow you to view the pictures on the card.
Summary: I just bought the 9000 and used it at a church wedding. I also brought along my Canon A95. The Stylus-9000 photos were grainy, the colors looked harsh and the background area was dark. By contrast, the Canon photos were very clean and sharp, the colors looked more pleasing and the lighting was even throughout the photo, even in the background. The two cameras were used from the same location, same church lighting.
