OK but camera microphone picks up internal noise when shooting video clips.
27 June 2014
Summary: Apparently the noise of the auto-focus gets picked up quite distinctly on the camera microphone when shooting hand-held video clips in a quiet environment which I found to be something of an annoyance. Of course I only discovered this after the time limit passed to return the camera to get a refund so I'm rather stuck with it now unless I sell it second-hand for a loss..
Summary: Don't buy it! Okay, it's cheap and for the price the camera is suitable for holiday snaps if image quality is not a priority. For me the resulting photos are most important. After all what's the point of going on hols, going to weddings and other events ending up with so-so pictures? If you're willing to spend more you will usually get more. I have a Canon S110 Powershot and reckon it's the best ultra-small camera available.
Summary: After taking a few trial photographs, mainly indoors with flash, I was very disappointed. The flash is not powerful enough, and largely left the images very dark in places with noticeable pixilation on both Auto and manual settings. Incredibly it has no Red Eye setting either. Also it is a small compact and fiddly to hold comfortably. Sadly will be returning and upgrading to a higher spec Olympus.
Summary: I bought this camera for my wife as her older Olympus had completely packed up. As it is my wifes, I do not use it and therefore cannot give a proper evaluation,but she assures me that so far, it seems to be performing quite well.
Summary: Takes photos as expected but video option not very informative as to whether it is actually running so not sure till play back is tried. Must admit it is first time tried so my technics may improve but very good for the price with free case and memory card.
