Great Point and Shoot for beginner to average photographer
16 January 2013
Excerpt: I have loved Olympus cameras for basic point and shoot use for years. This is my 4th. While it take good pictures, it feels like a step down from my last Olympus (that was one of the original stylus models). There is greater lag time between pushing the button and the photo being taken, the loss of the dial on the back of the camera for setting means so much more hunting on the screen for the settings I am looking for. I love grabbing some quick video with this camera.
Excerpt: easy and good quality photos from close-up to far away have great pics never had an issue with this little camera sometimes a little confusing with the settings but with practice not bad have had this camera for several years and like I said before never an issue can sit for long periods of time without using and always seem to have enough to do what i want to do at spur of the moment back pocket or purse not a problem!
Excerpt: I bought this to replace a Kodak 8 megapixal camera I received a few years ago. While I loved my Kodak the Olympus is such a huge improvement. This camera is 12 megapixal which allows me to print larger pictures that have excellent quality to them. This camera has lots of features and "extras" and is well priced. The feature I like best is the anti-shake stabilizer.
Summary: I have a Nikon P60 which I have used a LOT..That camera was a workhorse and was really easy to hold onto securely, unlike this Olympus, which, to me has a very slippery surface. having said that, my Nikon just stopped working, right before New Years Eve of course! So I started using the Olympus which is my wife's camera and to my surprise I liked it.
Summary: The sample video was taken with this camera from the Maryland side of the Potomac River at Great Falls National Park overlooking the main channel on January 28, 2010. The river was swollen from melting snow. High winds played havoc with the tiny camera microphone, distorting the sound.
Summary: For the price, this camera surpassed my expectations. The different shooting modes made it really easy to get the best shots depending on the what I was trying to take a picture of and the surrounding lighting. The Auto mode does an excellent job also in determining which mode to shot in. I highly recommend this camera. To get the most out the camera, read the manual.
Summary: $180 for a compact 12MP 7X optical zoom is just what I was looking for to get better pics of the wildlife here, and family photos. After using the 7010 for two months, the auto point and shoot works quickly, the wide-angle and panoramic modes produce very good pics, and the low-light flash shots are good from 15ft or less.
