Cheaply made and disappointing

Lori K., Amazon

  • Summary: I chose this camera because of my prior Olympus experience, which was great, and because of the optical zoom, and viewfinder. The first time I loaded the batteries into the camera I was concerned because the camera was made of flimsy plastic. With in 3 weeks the camera body had ready cracked. The second disappointment was the picture quality, not sharp. And forget about taking pictures of the kids playing soccer indoors, the camera couldn't do it.

Jack of all trades, master of none

  • Summary: I love the optical zoom, fit, finish and feel of this camera. However, when it comes to pictures, I was unable to get even one clear picture. My 6-year old Olympus D490Z 2MP camera takes much better pictures than this one.

  • Excerpt: На матрице куча битых пикселей (группами), и вообще шума много. В автомате снимает отвратительно, нужны только ручные настройки. При использовании не фирменной (и то с определенным индексом) флэшки, не работают некоторые функции в том числе "понарама" и запись видео идет по 15 сек. Для такого кабана кнопки махонькие и плоские. Механика работает шумно, в связи с этим в режиме видео со звуком работает только цифровой зум, без звука - оптический. Объектив болтается.
  • Pros: Хорошо лежит в руке, экномичный по эл. питанию.
  • Cons: Любительский аппарат требуюший определенного опыта и знаний для получения качественных снимков,потому что автомат никакой.

Eine absolute Fehlkonstruktion

  • Summary: Ich kann dem Ersten Bericht nur zustimmen, die Kamera ist unglaublich schwach. weiter noch : - Jedes mal beim Neustart sind alle benutzerdefinierten Einstellungen geloescht und man faengt von vorne an. Es gibt zwar eine Funktion in der man manuell Einstellungen vornehmen kann, diese sind aber nicht komplett einstellbar (autobelichtung geht dann zum beispiel nicht).
  • Pros: Videoaufnahmen
  • Cons: kein Bildstabilisator , die letzte Einstellung bleibt nicht gespeichert
