Summary: This camera was first released in 2005 when it cost probably $250. I would buy it again, but not at the prices I am seeing it. Probably sold at these prices now because it is unavailable, like a classic camera? I shot outstanding photos with this little jewel which gives incredible color depth to the photos, had closeup capabilities worth the money it cost at the time it was manufactured new. Now.... Well, I would pay around $40-50 dollars for it.
Excerpt: To the contrary of the other reveiw, I LOVE my Olympus SP-350. The price tag was high, but well worth the investment. The image quality is great, the camera features are great, totally happy with this purchase. To the other reveiwer, I hate to say that your time line simply doesn't make sense since this camera comes with a minimum of a one year warranty. I purchased one for myself and one for my mother as a Christmas gift a few years back.
Excerpt: The Olympus new SP-350 digital cameras is price at the very affordable deal of three hundred nad ninety nine dollars U.S. The Olympus SP-350, is a compacted camera with a two and half LCD display, VGA movie mode, and fully manual controls, AF-assist lamp. This camera use the traditional AA batteries and RAM format image support.The SP-350 has a built-in lens cover so there are no clumsy lens caps to fool around with, with me is a very big plus with this item.The Olympus...
Slowest camera EVER, but takes AMAZING macro photos!!!
7 November 2011
Summary: This camera finally died on me after about 4 years of use, and I really did love it, despite the fact that it was the SLOWEST CAMERA EVER... but it took such nice macro photos I couldn't help but love it. The still shots were pretty decent too. I bought it at Costco for $200. I carried this camera EVERYWHERE, and it took quite a beating from me so the fact that it lasted 4 years is pretty amazing. I took thousands of photos with it.
Summary: I bought my camera about 2 years ago and LOVE it! the pictures are great, and macro pics are outstanding! If you can clearly see pollen on a bees legs you KNOW this camera is the real deal. I have taken it to the mountains, desert and sea shore and it is not a baby...it has taken some rough handling and just keeps on ticking. I would recommend this camera to anyone! hands down a winner. if there are any drawbacks, I knew them when In purchased the camera. 1.
Summary: I'd owned a few digital cameras before settling on this one, and I never regretted my purchase until now. I say this because the camera is dead, and Olympus estimates the repair at $174. That's just plain crazy. Turns out my problem is a fairly common one, so if you get this camera my advice would be to get the protection plan. My camera lasted about two years. Contrary to the negative reviews on here, I think it got excellent battery life.
Summary: I have had this camera for over a year now. A few months after I got it, I had an issue where the lense wouldn't extend. There was a jam, so I sent it back to Olympus and it was repaired. It took them 5 days to inspect it and repair it, since then I have had NO problems with this camera. My husband actually dropped it the other week from a height of about 5ft 4inches (he is 6ft 4 and was getting ready to take a picture) and the camera still works GREAT!
Summary: i've always liked olympus cameras, and this one did not disappoint. this model has since been discontinued, but there are still a few available if you look. the price is right, the performance is typical Olympus. point and shoot ease, but enuf bells and whistles to keep your interest.
Summary: I love this small, yet almost DSLR camera. It allows me to be creative or just point and shoot. Lenses help expand this camera's capiblity. I've taken a wide varity of photos with this camera from macro shots to full wide angle. It's also nice that you can upload the newest verison of filmware from Olympus to keep this camera current.
