Great camera, although it could have better firmware

Summary: I bought this camera when it first came out about two years ago and i love it. It is great, the photos are amazing and it still works like the day i bought it. The only downfall i would say is that it takes sometime to get used to it and it does not have as many features like many new cameras have, like face recognition. The video it great but it cannot replace a video recorder.
Summary: Great camera! Used on trip to China...takes great photos. Snapped photos without looking (at some places) and was able to edit them into great photographs on my computer. Small but powerful, very convenient to carry during a trip. Fits in your palm or your pocket. Best camera I own.
Summary: I am very disapointed with the durability of this product. The pictures were good...but the display screen went out in less than a year; now I have to buy a new camera. Avoid digital cameras without a viewfinder. Update: the company fixed it for free without delay! That's good customer service.
Fine for casual photography, not a great pinch-hitter for my DSLR

Summary: The Olympus Stylus 1200 appeared to have everything I'd want in a small package when I didn't want to carry my DSLR gear, but it comes up a little short. I don't think most of my complaints would apply to someone looking for a nice point-and-shoot for family events and casual photography. Cons: - Image quality: The resolution is nice, but it's apparent that the chip is small, so while I have a good bit of file to work with, it's not super quality.

Summary: I can't say myself as this was purchased for some friends in England. They seem quite pleased with it, however. I would like to see an additional review box for gifts. You can't really rate it yourself, but you can pass on others' comments.
Excerpt: So very easy to take anywhere and keep it with you and not worry about forgetting it on a table. It comes with a cable to hook to either my computer to download the pictures or my printer to go ahead and print. The software takes a few practice runs to get use to it, but what computer program doesn’t. The pictures I’ve printed and viewed on my computer look great. The 12 mega pixels give it a very good quality picture.
Summary: So far so good. This is my 4th Olympus camera and it is very user friendly, small and reasonably priced. My only wish is for it to have a larger zoom but this will increase the size of the camera itself. Highly recommend. I suggest you buy an extra battery for long trips/use. I have three but two will be also good.
