Summary: Love this camera! Great battery, the size is perfect but at times can become a little heavy around the neck. I use the optical zoom often to catch images of animals from afar and the clarity for me is perfect!
Summary: I have been used to a point and shoot camera by Olympus. It hit the dust during a trip and was grateful to have my cell phone to fill in the photos that would have been missed. I feared this new camera, might be too much for this old brain to figure out, but it has been a dream.
Summary: I love this camera. I accidentally left it outside and it rained that night. The next day I found it and the screen was full of water and sand. I cleaned it the best I could placed it in rice for two days. It has glitched a few times but none worse for the wear.
Summary: The first camera that I ordered from this seller did not work the camera lens would not extend properly. I inquired with my seller about this and he promptly sent me a brand new camera (the one I originally purchased was refurbished).
Summary: I researched for days/weeks reviewing numeous cameras. I chose this one; because of the many things a person can do with the camera. To my greatest surprise was the feel, the grip is perfect. The pictures are great. They are almost like real action.
Summary: I chose this camera because I want to learn to take better quality photographs than with a standard point-and-shoot, but I'm not aiming to become a professional photographer. I was very satisfied with my first tries using this camera.
Summary: EASY TO USE, AIM AND SHOOT. PICTURES ARE VERY CLEAR. THE ZOOM IS THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD IN A CAMERA. I HAVE ALWAY USED CANON CAMERA'S VERY HAPPY SO FAR WITH OLYMPUS. HAVE TO DO MORE READING TO LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT I CAN DO WITH THE CAMERA.
