Summary: Frankly, this is just a bad camera. The images on "land" are very poor quality and never very good, the controls and settings are hard to use, and the camera is completely unpredictable. To top off the poor photo quality and all, I can't even use a normal USB cable to upload pictures.
Summary: I got this Camera for Christmas of 2009. I am 16 now, and I only use this camera if it is a must! The picture quality is horrible! If your getting it for use under water, then the quality is not to bad.
Summary: The picture quality is not good at all. My 13 year old doesn't even use it because of this. I purchased the previous Olympus 8mp model (orange) for another daughter, and it takes much better pictures. I prefer the pictures from my older model Pentax underwater camera.
Summary: My daughter received this for Christmas from Santa. Great size for her, cool color and very easy to use. She loved it right away and began taking videos of her siblings playing with their toys right away. Never got to try it out underwater since the lense cover jammed shut by the 3rd day of use.
Summary: i recently just bought this camera, i was so excited to use it, and to try it under water. The underwater pictures came out great, but the outdoor pictures came out horrible! The image was dark, and not very clear.
Summary: The first Olympus digital camera I owned was the Camedia C-2 Zoom, launched in 2002. This was an extremely popular camera, not least because of its superb cost performance. Sales far exceeded expectations, causing Olympus' purchasing departments some trouble in keeping pace with demand for materials...
Excerpt: I bought Olympus Stylus 550WP two years ago just for curiosity, because I wanted to see how camera can be waterproof, because we all know that quote "Electricity and water do not mix". At first I was affraid to put it in the water, but then you get used to it and throw it around like a stone.
Pros: low price, good quality, light, small, waterproof
Summary: UMA DROGA, não comprarei nunca mais uma câmera Olympus.
Pros: Nenhum, já que não tive tempo de usá-la debaixo da água.
Cons: As travas de abertura da bateria e do cartão de memória são de um plástico frágil, e pouco salientes. É MUITO DIFÍCIL ABRIR ESSES COMPARTIMENTOS, e acabei tendo que utilizar objetos pontiagudos para fazê-lo. Em menos de 6 meses já não conseguia abrir a câmera. Só consegui enviá-la à Assistência T...
