Shooting stills are great especially with good lighting

Clown Prince, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: I haven't spent much time with it to master all the features. Shooting stills are great especially with good lighting. I did take it to a party to shoot some pics and it didn't come out as I wanted it too. I had it on auto after a few failed attempts but I still kept getting blurry pics from the movie and dancing. It wasn't fast enough to catcher the moment.

  • Summary: This camera is very good for taking pictures of stationary scenery and people. However it is very hard to get moving things especially if they are far away. Otherwise it takes good pictures.

Just what I wanted

Buster P., Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: My first camera (decades ago) was an all-manual Olympus OM-1, and now I've returned to the fold with this essentially all-automatic Olympus model. In the intervening years, I made do with various Fuji and Canon point 'n' clicks, but was never really satisfied with the picture quality or zoom ranges. Convenient, but compromised. I'm quite happy with this camera's image quality, short shutter lag, image stabilization, user interface and general feature set.

Great Value

  • Summary: I don't know of any other camera in this price range that has the features of this Olympus model, especially the 40X zoom lens. My wife and I have another Olympus camera that we love--great pictures and easy to use--but she does a lot of international travel with her job, and she was wishing she had a stronger zoom lens a few months ago when she was trying to get closeup photos of Koalas in the wild. This new camera will solve that problem for her.

  • Summary: Very good camera. Only problem is the battery type (AAA) versus "flat" battery type (which I had a charger). This now requires me to purchase recyclable batteries. I may have missed this in the specs.

Still learning but love it so far!

K. Mangels, Amazon

  • Summary: I had not owned a camera in a while and was looking to get a fairly uncomplicated one that will last a while. I think I have found what I need. I still haven't read the instruction after almost a month(I know I could get so much more out of it just by doing that) but have been very pleased by the photos I've taken so far.
