Summary: I wanted a camera I could put in my pocket and one that was not as incredibly slow as the Nikon Coolpix I own. The SP350 filled the bill at a bargain price on auction. The pictures are tack sharp and beautiful although white balance is an issue. The downside is that the memory card is hard to find expensive. The camera did not include a cable which had to buy. Battery life also seems short.
Summary: Great Camera to be an older model...Takes great pictures and has many different features..Size and weight is average but its actually big compared to the newer models.I would recommend this camera to people if they are looking for an older model for good price that takes good pictures. If you have the money go ahead and get a newer model this camera is good but dont think I would choose over a newer model..
Summary: Was diving in Honduras C A. And rented a camera to dive . Had great pic. Camera guy said they don't make camera's like this anymore. This camera is well suited for diving. Colors are WOW and anybody can shoot and if a pro all the features are there.
Summary: What can I say about this camera wow the pics are fantastic the color it is as good as my Sony with a 1080i in it this camera has things in it a $900 camera would have I have also purchased the LENMAR DL-CRV3 Rechargeable and the Lenmar KITCRV3 Charger for CRV3 Battery works great bought this camera in Jan of 2007 and its still going strong love it.
Summary: I have had this camera for years and love it, even though it has limitations that can frustrate. I will start with the flaws. Saving files to the card is very slow, especially if you shoot in RAW (most won't, so no big deal). It is slow (especially by today's standards) to review pictures after taking them. And it eats alkaline batteries for breakfast lunch and dinner. Other than those things this camera is exceptionally well thought out.
Summary: I bought this camera last summer and brought it on an 18-day camping trip. The camera survived and captured some amazing pictures. While at first all of its functions may intimidate some people, it is very easy to use. It takes great pictures, is a nice shape and size, and takes pictures quickly (when the battery is full) I was a little weary about only having 3x zoom, but if you really want to take a picture of something far away, you can switch to Super High-Quality...
Summary: If you buy this camera, the first thing you do is go online and upgrade the firmware from the Olympus site. Then you won't have the pseudo-battery problems. The battery life is actually very good. Next, read the manual. Name me another 8 mp digital camera in this class that has all the features this one has - light-weight, 8 mp, a hot shoe (!!!), FULL manual controls, slave flash settings, etc.
