Do NOT waste your money on this one

JMShope, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: I saved up for months and bought this camera August 2006.  It worked well for a while and then started dying after 5-10 pictures, even with brand new batteries. Then Olympus sent a "firmware update" for a problem with battery life indicator. Basically the batteries were fine but camera could not judge the battery level.  So after updating the camera it STOPPED working all together within 3 months of update.

Do Yourself a Favor

David L. Stevens, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera at COSTCO about 2 years ago for about $[...] which was about $90 more than it is worth. It has many great features that attracted me and could have made it a great camera but the shutter lag and memory write speed make this camera almost useless. Battery life is also an issue. Even if it didn't have these flaws it would be a $[...] camera at best. Do yourself a favor and don't get ripped off. Spend your money on a good camera.

  • Summary: i ordered a camera 2 monthes ago and i have yet to recieve it. not only that, it said on my product tracking that it was delivered to the back door. i am on a military army base in iraq so thats impossible. when i tried to contact the company to find out what is going on (over 5 emails to be exact) i recieved not one response. so, after they took out the money from my bank account, i recieved no product and no response.
