User Review

Henry Falkner, DP Review

  • Excerpt: Good Points: On the January 6-day Morris Tour I took on average 1 hour and a half of video plus stills each day, which needed 2 charged batteries each day (SZ-30MR the year before needed 3 charged batteries to finish the day). The 5-axis Image Stabilisation on flight and dance videos was highly appreciated. The annual radio club lecturer Gary Bold ZL1AN commented that my video had the best video AND audio quality compared to previous years.

Disappointed in macro & pet scene - otherwise fine

Yarii "fifty shades of blonde", Amazon

  • Summary: This is my first Olympus camera after using Sony, Panasonic Lumix and Fuji cameras my entire life. I'm somewhat disappointed with this camera, although it does have it's redeeming qualities with video. There is no dedicated macro setting on the thumb-wheel, You have to go into the Scene Settings and choose Super Macro, but sometimes this choice doesn't do such a good job, 25% of my macro shots aren't as sharp as I like, even when using a tripod.

Great Camera, love the image quality.....BUT......

Nancy Kossmann, Amazon

  • Summary: I have no problem with the camera, but the A/C adapter did not work right out of the box. I contacted Olympus within three days of receiving the camera and they tell me that the part is no longer available. So,..... they're still selling a camera (brand new) that they don't make battery chargers for any more??? This is ridiculously hard to believe. I realize I can buy this part seperately or charge the battery via my computer, but come on Olympus..

Perfectly fine pocket super super zoom and not expensive either...

Alexander Don-Doncow "Critical Al", Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: Very good pocket super zoom, very decent picture quality for a small sensor camera that is... Color is excellent except for the reds that are noticeably exaggerated . Nothing that cannot be easily corrected in Photoshop. Exposure, about the most consistent I have seen in any camera. Resolution, theoretically great, in practice rather poor. Here is where this camera limps notoriously. Olympus chose to apply a very aggressive de-noising algorithm.

Overall Excellent Camera

A. C. Bauer "Major Husker", Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: This is a really good camera overall. It is very easy to use and takes great pictures. The zoom is awesome - no complaints at all about the quality or operation of the actual camera. My only issue is that it doesn't use a standard Mini or Micro USB connector for charging the batteries. Why it is a totally different connector from every other piece of electronics I have is beyond me.

Takes great pictures

Paul Stanley, Amazon

  • Summary: 24x zoom works great. no noticable auto-focus lag. The lens got stuck and wouldn't extend once, but I think it was dust in the mechanism. Now I have a case and the problem has not repeated.

Good camera for the price

Elizabeth D., Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: This turned out to be a terrific little camera. The zoom is excellent, focus in dim lighting is very good, handy for action shots. I had the impression from the description in Amazon that this camera had a rapid "burst" mode, offering 10 shots per sec. This did not turn out to be the case. Otherwise, it is a nice camera for the price.

Nice

  • Summary: The camera has lots of features which is a pro and a con. It would be nice if there was an eyehole to look through when taking a photo versus just having a screen to look at.

Quality photos

  • Summary: Clear pictures and somewhat easy to use. Instruction info on disc therefore need to use computer. Still having trouble understanding how to use some of the features.
