Summary: I've been through a bit of cameras til I came to this one. I wanted a camera that has crisp pictures without having to use flash all the time. I also wanted one that could take night shots all the same with or without flash. I came back to the olympus family line. This camera takes beautiful pictures, has focus help. I have children so I take pictures alot. My children don't stand still, but this camera manages to capture them anyway most the time without the flash.
Summary: I gave this camera 5 stars for 1 reason,it does exactly what I need,I did not purchase this looking for professional results,nor did I expect outlandish performance,this is a good 10x optical zoom ,quick, well built,digital point and shoot, as it implies,which has minimal settings,simple to use,excellent picture quality,mostly used outdoors,perfect for vacations,short trips,quick grab, take picture camera, If you are looking for DSLR quality,buy a DSLR ,if you just want...
Summary: I take pix all day every day. I'm a visual artist, photographer, illustrator, blogger. I've never enjoyed a camera as much as I've enjoyed this one. For the price, I find the lens quality to be outstanding, the zoom is sufficient, the macro and super-macro are wonderful tools. I've tried Canon digital cameras, kodak digital cameras... they just don't hold a candle to Olympus.
Summary: This is an excellent camera even though its a point and shoot. It has 12 mega pixels and a good zoom which is one of the reasons i bought this camera. I also bought this camera because it has an in-camera panorama feature. I later found out that it also does a grant job with up close pictures like flowers and such. it has three shooting settings for it in case you want to get really close like i do: normal, macro, and super-macro.
Summary: Love the camera! Its important to note what I was looking for when I purchased this. I wanted: 1) COMPACT, 2) High Optical Zoom, 3) Shooting Modes, 4) Ease of use 5) CHEAP ( I bought this camera for $300, $175 of it with gift certificates I already had, so I ended up paying like $125 all in all.
Summary: I love this camera. It has a durable feel to it, while still looking sleek and polished. Picture quality is great, and the image stabilizer and sports/action mode is usually solid enough to take good pictures of people/things that are on the move. Panoramic mode is pretty impressive for taking wide angle pictures. Overall I am very impressed with this camera. Great price for a quality camera.
