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.
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: 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.
