Summary: This camera was bought in September 2013 because I needed an easy to use point and shoot with good video for a 60+ user. For taking photos, the camera is only used on 'auto' mode and the pictures are excellent quality for the typical holiday and family photos it is used for. Both indoor and outdoor, the camera takes sharp and clear pictures that are vibrant and print well at large sizes. Video has its own button, which was a deal maker for ease of use.
Summary: Ordered it for our holiday in japan, did its job well. Easy to carry around thanks to the wrist strap you find in the pack. Photos have a nice quality. I really love the panorama function, was really useful with temples and gardens - when you want to capture the overall feel of the place. What I do not really use is the touchscreen function - I find the touch shutter did not respond as well as the button, plus I hate fingermarks on displays.
Summary: Olympus SH-21 Digital Zoom Camera Bought as a present for my wife. We have found it to be an easy to use point and click camera. Good quality photos, good colour and sharp images. Also at under £100 a great price Very happy with it.
Summary: This is a very difficult camera and unfortunately the 82 page instruction book is held on disc. When out photographing i don't take my laptop so do not have access to important data for camera usage. Luckily in the USA I had my Canon SLR with me, but would have preferred to carry and use the compact Olympus.
Summary: I bought the SH-21 as an economy move to provide a smallish camera with good zoom for carrying whilst out walking, etc. That was a serious false economy - the screen is difficult to view whilst composing, and many of my pictures are out of focus due to the poor AF capability (in various modes). It also periodically fails to engage AF when first switched on. Not one of Olympus' success stories - I shall need to replace it.
