Summary: This camera is a great deal for the money and is a good compromise between the lower-quality point and shoots out there and an entry-level DSLR which can run several hundred dollars more. I think it's worth mentioning that the major sticking point for me with this camera has been the abysmal battery life. I've run through at least 10 sets (40 total) alkaline batteries in the year or so that I've owned this camera - with light to moderate usage.
Summary: I purchased this product because of the 16mp and 21X optical focusing. I also like the battery required is AA and not a special product. The photos and videos taken so far meet my expectations.

Summary: This camera works perfectly for my needs. The only thing I didn't like about the camera was it would time-out very quickly and if took me a while to learn to press the picture button halfway to get the camera to be ready to take pictures. Great quality. Did go through a lot of batteries (thank goodness for AA batteries!) when I was using screen and video and extra display options instead of auto focus.
Summary: This is my first Olympus camera but will not be my last. This is a great camera for anyone. It is easy to use and makes great photos. I used it for the first time at a granddaughters birthday party and was greatly impressed with the quality. I love the auto-focus and the lens is great. I also made a video and it was also good. I would recommend this product to most anyone. Thanks QVC for a great camera and the easy-pay option.
Summary: This camera has a great feel and look to it, for a point and shoot, its pretty good. I find the features really handy especially the 'go to' feature in the help menu of the camera - if your not sure what settings to use for a certain pic, just use that function and the camera automatically adjust the setting for you. Its overall great, the zoom is really good, and give a clean shot even without a tripod (at times).
