Olympus Stylus 500 Digital Camera

fishguts3, Ebay
26 February 2010
  • Summary: Just love the camera! It is easy to use and takes excellent pictures. I replaced the camera card with a larger one 512 vs. 32 mb it came with. The 512 allows me to store about 400 pictures on the camera whereas the 32 only allowed 27 picture storage. Camera is weather resistant, you can use it in the rain. That in itself is quite remarkable.

Olympus Stylus 500 - Great Camera

Brenda R. Gibbs "Bren The Libran", Amazon
3 December 2006
  • Summary: Olympus Stylus Digital Cameras are great buys for the money. I have had a Stylus 410 and now the Stylus 500. I took the 410 to Italy and I have fabulous pics from it. And the 500, withstood being in Hawaii thrown in the sand and getting sprayed with water. I mean, this camera takes great pix and is weather proof! The only con I can say is that it takes alot of juice to use the flash for night time shots, and they don't come out too well.

FLASH PROBLEMS

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 November 2006
  • Summary: I have had this camera for a little over a year and a half and have loved it until recently. All of a sudden, for no reason, the flash stopped working. The only way I can take a picture is to turn off the flash and then due to the slow shutter speed the picture is very blurry. There is no visible damage to the flash. When I talked with Olympus I could not get a price to fix the flash but they said it needed to be sent in for repairs which could take several weeks!!!

Has some good qualities, but overall, I am disappointed

V. Anton, Amazon
24 November 2006
  • Summary: I've had this camera for a little over a year. I've taken so many pictures I've lost count. I'm currently running into some problems with it, but up until recently it did okay for me. I've NEVER run out of battery...it has lasted during marathon picture taking occasions of over 150 photos. The large screen is great and outdoor/ bright light pics come out nicely. I also like the weather proof feature.

Olympus Stylus 500

Rinaldo Dicenzo, Amazon
3 August 2006
  • Summary: I personally own a Stylus 500 and purchased this one for work. I like the camera and its features. The memory card that comes with the camera is inusfficient in size. I would recommend a larger memory to start with. There is the typical digital camera delay in snap to image caputre.

Excellent

George Mamar, Amazon
17 July 2006
  • Summary: I bought this camera 4 months ago. The picture quality is excellent with 5MP. The scene selections give lovely shots, specially the ''candles'' selection. Outside pictures are just great. Whenever I send some pictures to my parents overseas, they are like ''wow'' because of the clear, sharp, and high quality.

This camera is phenomenal!!

M. Walsh, Amazon
6 May 2006
  • Summary: I bought this last year for my birthday, and I love it. My favorite feature is the "Scene" selection. Sunset is great, Portrait is great, Landscape is great! They're all perfect and exactly what they say. I've never had a camera with a timer, but this one has one for self-portraits, and I love it.
