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...
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).
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.
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.
Summary: Great smaller camera. Take a lot of animal pictures and the response time is much better than the camera I was using (I took a lot of pictures showing only the tails or less as they had departed before the shutter clicked). This does not happen with the Olympus SP350.
Summary: I was worried from some of the reviews, but I must say, this camera is completely awesome! I have taken at least 50 pictures so far and the battery is still going strong. I didn't think it would happen, but it's probably going to replace my professional 35mm that I always use.
Summary: Had this camera for over a month and it has not been dissapointing. The quality is excellent and the size is nearly perfect. I love the hot shoe on this and use it often. If you are looking for an 8mp that won't dissapoint look no further. I grab this when I don't want to lug around my DSLR.
