Summary: i have recently bought it. took a few pictures. it has really a good design and finish. do not expect high quality pics from a 1/2.35" sensor. i could not understand two points yet: can it record movies for 40sec? and is there any option to shoot more than once on self timer mode.
Summary: Worthwhile upgrade from previous 10X Olympus. More zoom, faster, easier to find functions, and more features. Still trying to get used to scene-based shooting and deciding right mode -- especially for indoor shooting (images fuzzy).

Great Camera still learning how to use all the features

Summary: I've been using this camera for about a month, inside, outside, and underwater. Having a wide-angle lens built-in is great, and the 18x zoom gives it versatility. The features of this camera a too numerous to mention here, and while many are easily accessed, there are lots of features buried deep in...
