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: Length:: 0:31 Mins 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: $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.
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: I bought an Olympus Stylus 7010 with 12 megapixel. This is a very good camera and I like it very much! I can take close pictures because of the super macro function. Unfortunatelly the internal memory is quite low, so, I had to buy microXD card.
Summary: The Olympus Stylus 7010 is a neat little camera that does more than expected for the price. It's much thinner and lighter than my previous digital camera, which is what I was looking for in a take-it-everywhere camera. The only drawback is the very sensitive lens cover, which jammed partly open the first day I used it, when I stuck the camera in my pocket. I gently tugged it shut, and it functioned fine after that.
