Great little camera when you don't want to lug around a DSLR.

Summary: This camera takes great pictures. It is very small, yet easy to handle. The touch screen really helps with selection a focus point. I carry it on my bike so I am not without a camera and it has proven to be good for close ups as well as telephoto. I would not hesitate to recommend this camera...I have owned several pocket zoom cameras (Panasonic, Canon, etc.) and I like this one best.
Another solid performer by Olympus, now available at a bargain price

Summary: With the new lower price due to being an "old model," this camera has turned into a bargain for the quality and features offered. In comparison with the SZ-16 (essentially an earlier, slightly simpler version), the SH-50 offers both greater stability correction and more manual controls, plus a touch screen; otherwise, it's essentially identical (a few other minor differences).
This is a good camera. I got it on one of those ...

Summary: This is a good camera. I got it on one of those daily specials so the price was good. It works well in poor lighting and has excellent zoom capabilities. Be careful, the surface texture is low friction so you need to use the strap to make sure you don't drop it. But it has lots of nice features and is fairly simple to use.
Summary: Fantastic Camera. Great Features. Still experimenting with a few features. Video and Zoom are great. Can take large group pictures at a close distance which is amazing for when we have family parties and we want to fit everyone in. Night time pictures come out soooo well compared to my old camera. Great price for the amazing features it carries. Love it!
Summary: Really nice cameria, it's not as small as a credit card cameria, but the quality of the pictures are purification. I love the Micro and all the different styles of a picture you have to chose from. This weekend this cameria is going on a tripod to take some perfect family pictures. I have an " old school" Minolta with many lenses, a small Nikon, etc. I have taken pictures for a long time and the quality of Olimpus is above any cameria I have ever used.

Summary: This camera takes sharp still photos and truly outstanding videos. I've used various models of Olympus and Nikon cameras to take videos with mediocre to poor results. The videos I've taken with this camera, even at low light levels, have been excellent. They are properly exposed and in focus. Auto exposure, auto focus and telephoto functions work very well. I'm thoroughly satisfied with this camera.
Summary: Was able to get this on sale here on Amazon several months ago. Wanted to use this a lot, and break it in before giving you an honest review. 1. Picture quality is amazing. 2. Can zoom in 24x in High Definition, or up to 48x standard. 3. Small enough to fit in the pocket, yet powerful enough to work in any element. 4. The Battery life lasts 8 to 10 hours taking pictures, and left on standby. 5. Has Flash, custom features, add on accessories, etc. 6.
Very good upper tier point and shoot with DSLR options.

Summary: This is really an incredible camera, they say when a device does everything it usually dosen't do anything well. This camera proves that statement false, it has plenty of automatic options for those that just what to turn it on and take a picture. It does that well and extremely quickly, under 2 seconds from off to focused and picture taken.
Summary: Can't say enough about how much I love this camera. I bought this for my wife who is not very techie and tends to freak out over complicated electronics. Although this camera has a ton of really cool and useful options, all of the important stuff - making pictures & videos and viewing them - are all easily done by a couple of buttons right on the camera. She took this on a trip to South America and got great pictures and movies for all of us to enjoy.
Summary: I really like my camera. absolutely love the zoom. I can stand inside my kitchen and take picture of birds outside with out scaring them away. I use the auto setting. I'm not very knowledgeable with the settings.
