Broke After a Little Over a Year

Summary: I bought this camera in July of 2011 & it died today October 2012. The reason why I chose this camera in the first place was because it was an Olympus & my previous camera of 8 years was an Olympus & I loved it. My old Olympus would probably still be working to this day if my cat didn't decide to pee on it.
Summary: We bought this camera through QVC about a year ago. To date, we have yet to get ONE good picture. At first, we thought it was something we were doing wrong, but after working with it and adjusting everything, and then going back to automatic, we still do not have a decent picture. We are embarrassed to show anyone our pics because they are blurry, grainy, and yellowish. I feel like we've lost a whole years worth of memories. This is my first and last Olympus.
Summary: I have owned Olympus cameras for the last 20 years, and, all have met my expectations until I received my new 600UZ. It is the last Olympus I will ever own. Although the software loaded into my Windows 7 from the on screen prompts, Windows cannot find it and now I am without an instruction manual. The battery/card cover will not lock to proclude battery loss and the few pictures I have taken so far fall far below my expectations. Do not waste your money on such.
Summary: I got sold this camera on HSN. The ladies on the network convinced me that this was the greatest camera ever built, and I fell for it. Never again. Usually I research my purchases to death, but this time I didn't. Shame on me. I've kept it over 6 months, thinking that my inability to get clear shots was my fault, but now I'm pretty well convinced that the camera sucks. And my picture quality has actually gotten worse over those 6 months. Took the camera to a 2 yr.
Summary: Through and through, this camera was a piece of garbage. I am uncertain if I got a defective one, but judging by the sheer awfulness of it right out of the box, I want to just tell anyone thinking on this to not do it. Olympus had never given me issue ever before; but the inability to actually focus and the sheer grain and noise on the images were so terrible that after four and a half hours of attempting to change the settings to fix it, I gave up and boxed it up to...
don't waste your time, picture quality not acceptable

Summary: About the Olympus SP 600 UZ 75% of pictures I took with automode is not acceptable, not focused, color is wrong, and the lag is significant, so the action is missed. When I changed to program mode, correcting the lighting condition, the color became true, but other deficiencies stay the same. I returned it to amazon after the first day.
