Summary: Sub-$100 cameras are tough to recommend, despite the incredibly low price. Most of the time, these types of cameras have so many drawbacks that they're going to be extremely frustrating to use, making that money you saved seem hardly worth the hassle.
Summary: The Olympus Stylus 7010 is an ultra-compact with a 7X wide-angle optical zoom lens, built-in stabilization and a 12 megapixels sensor. Image quality has both good and less good aspects, falling just short of a good Rating. In terms of speed though, this digital camera does well.
Pros: Natural image colors, Good white-balance with light cast under tungsten, Good lens sharpness, Mostly reliable exposure, Very fast and responsive, except for EC and some review features, Excellent LCD visibility
Cons: High noise at all ISO, Fine details are muddled by noise-reduction, Color shift at ISO 1600, Too few zoom steps, Very limited feature set, no custom white-balance, no short self-timer, Below average image stabilization, Short battery-life
