Summary: It was purchased as a replacement for the same camera that I lost. So glad to have it since I was familiar with how to use it. Makes great pictures and easy to carry. Glad I could replace it even if I couldn't recover the pictures I had lost. I do recommend this to others on a regular basis.
Excerpt: This is my third Olympus camera. I have had to send a camera in twice to be repaired and they offer excellent customer service, which is the primary reason I keep coming back to Olympus. This model is a great for someone like me - I'm not a professional photographer, but I am a mom with 2 kids who likes to take pictures at school events or in the park. This model does an exceptionally good job capturing action shots.
Excerpt: The Olympus 7010 Digital Camera is a great value for the money, with a 7x zoom and 12 megapixels. Its the smallest digital camera on the market with a 7x zoom, so its versatile and portable. Drawbacks: There is no optical finder and the zoom is slower than you may find with other models. As a result of the zoom there can be some impact on picture quality despite the zoom stabilization, which is a trade-off. The interface is easy but there but there is no hand grip.
Excerpt: I love this camera! The family and I bought this digital camera a couple of weeks ago. Even though it hasn't been long, I really like this camera. A couple of the things that I love is that about this camera is that it is FABULOUS with close ups. It shows great detail and colors! I love to take close ups on plants, they look like they were taken by a professional!
Excerpt: I literally buy a new camera every year for the past few years because something usually breaks (A part) oni my camera and I can't stand that... I've had several cameras in the past butI wanted to upgrade this year from my Olympus 1010 to this Olympus 7010 and I just have to say good things about it! The stabilizer is what I liked most about it and the fact I can take a good clear photo. It has face recognition and its definately got al ot of photo options.
Summary: I bought this camera a few years ago, from a sale at an office supply store (Staples? Office Depot? Not sure.). The 7x optical zoom is almost impossible to find at this price point, so I couldn't pass this one up. Be extremely careful with the battery- the first time, I inserted it the wrong way and almost pulled off part of it trying to get it back out. Despite this, it still works (when inserted correctly), but the battery edge is a little loose.
Summary: I am not a professional photographer or anything close to it. I just wanted a point and shoot camera, that would be compact, so that I could easily carry it around wherever I go, and one that took some quality pictures. Fortunately this camera is and does, what it's supposed to be and do. The only problem with it, is that it holds very small number of pictures, like 10 pictures with it's internal memory.
