A Small-But Mighty Travelers' Camera

Summary: This is the second (used) back-up camera I've bought for my beloved old, obsolete, Olympus SP-565UZ, a small, but mighty camera for amateur travel photographers. It has a good wide-angle lens, enabling photos of tall or wide buildings, tall trees, etc.
Summary: Takes great pictures and has a tone of features and settings to get the best pictures. A professional might like a camera like this but for me, it gets a bit complicated and literally I needed to download and print an entire instructional manual to figure out all the features.
Summary: I have had this camera for quite a while and use it extensively. It has so many features that I am still not fully up to speed on its full capability. It takes excellent pictures that I use to publish two web sites, one newsletter and multiple sets in my Flickr account.
Summary: I purchased this camera several years ago as a gift to my wife, and apparently I have yet to write a review. Wow. Ok, well this may benefit the end user, since my wife and I have spent several years using it and therefore can give a more accurate review.
Summary: This camera was just so-so....I expected a much better functioning camera but this is not it! I will not buy Olympus again due to the experience I had with this camera....focus is very slow and the reaction time is ridiculous!
Summary: Seems to do everything promised, and takes pictures just like a DSLR. The only really major difference between this and the much more expensive (and newer) options is the lack of interchangeable lenses.
