Summary: Like its Overall fit, quality design and easy to use . I didnt like its image quality. For a 16 mp latest camera I expected more sharp pictures. I have an also Panasonic fz150, maybe because of it didnt like this much.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera as a point and shoot alternative to my Canon SLR. I wanted a small camera with big zoom that could take sharp images and could record decent video. What sold me on it is the new Olympus 5-axis image stabilization. The IS is instantly noticeable, and is by far the best advantage to this camera.
Summary: The camera itself it really nice. It's a good size & does everything I wanted. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a manual. I downloaded the manual but found the print much too small for me to read. I went to the Olympus Learn Center & found I can probably print out most questions from there but that will take an awful lot of time, paper & ink.
Summary: I like the old school look, particularly the pop up flash, but the plastic feels a little cheap. Also, for a point-and-shoot, it's fairly bulky. I couldn't fit it in any of my other point-and-shoot cases. The biggest problem is with how far the lens sticks out, even when fully reclined. It also doesn't use a standard Mini or Micro USB connector. You have to use a special cable by Olympus (provided) to connect the camera to your computer/charger.
Summary: I suspect this camera will more than meet my expectations. However as I worked through the setup instructions they told me to insert the memory card. There was no memory card! After calling both Amazon and Olympus I found out that it is not part of the package and that any of the card options mentioned in the instructions can be used. However this requires either a second order from Amazon or a trip to a local camera supplier.
Summary: I love the beautiful color photos, but I am very disappointed that there is not an easy option for taking a black and white photo....it can be done through the Master system, but amazed this isn't an easy option on the camera.
Summary: I had high hopes waiting for the SH-50 to arrive; I am a big fan of the Canon PowerShot SX280 which is a similar superzoom format camera. The reasons for my high hopes are that the lens is fractionally quicker and the zoom is 20% longer. On receiving the Olympus is quite noticeably larger and marginally heavier than the Canon; it still fits in a pocket but its definitely bigger; and the longer lends causes a bigger lens bulge on the front.
Summary: Nach drei Wochen hier ein kurzer ueberblick: gute Bilder, gute Handhabung, nette Spielereien bei effekt-aufnahmen wie weichzeichner, Dramatik und spiegeln. Akku hält gut, habe den anti-wankel-modus nur während der Aufnahme an. Die Olympus SH ist bestimmt keine Profi Kamera u bei benutzung des tollen zoom lässt die Bildqualität suksessive nach, klar. Aber ich habe mich während der osterferien jeden Tag gefreut, sie zu haben.
Excerpt: солидарен с Валентином, данный фотоаппарат хорош для съемки видео, для фото лучше подобрать другую модель - у этого фотки получаются чересчур обработанными, при маленьком приближении на экране компа видны артефакты и акварель. Кроме того фотоаппарат не успевает за сюжетом на режиме Авто, почти все фото получались смазанными, пришлось снимать на режиме Спорт - но он хорошо работает только при нормальном освещении. Резюме - фотик вернул после 2 дней эксплуатации.
