Summary: I've owned this camera for about 5 years now, it replaced a Sony Cyber-shot I dropped in sand in Hawaii. I wanted something durable, water/sand/drop/freeze proof and sure enough this camera has been dropped and banged repeatedly on rocks, been in the ocean/river/pool/waterfall, taken pictures in...
Summary: i must say that the photo and video quality are very good but i am not satisfied with the scene selection speed, when it auto selects the scene and focus to program the shot, it's too slow (a second maybe) When you point to a movement shot it s an eternity.
Summary: This was my second one of these cause I loved them so much! BUT...we used this for snorkeling in the ocean and it completely rusted out the screen. We even let it soak in fresh water after each dive as suggested.
Summary: what I dislike: I had a hard time taking picture indoors, I tried every day for a while, I swear I was so frustrated I cried!!, it's HORRIBLE at this!! I tried adjusting a lot of things, flash, mode, sun position, my position, etc!, I even used a tripod because I thought maybe it was me moving..
Summary: Pro> its a tough camera which i carry into backwoods Alaska as well as to work in the Arctic. It takes good pics. I have not blown any pics up to large size. I didn't experience any of the connection port problems others have reported, i think those who did just don't know how to plug cords in...
Summary: This is a decent camera. Things I like ** This camera is a sturdy workhorse of a pocket point-and-shoot. ** I've enjoyed the internal panoramic-photo option, where the photo is taken and stitched together on the spot.
Summary: I own other Olympus Stylus cameras. As far as it being waterproof,freeze proof, tough, blah blah blah... yup all of that is true and it's a great camera. BUT the downloading of the pictures onto the computer is endless and when you download a video? I hope you have plenty of time...
