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.
Summary: I've already owned one of these cameras, the one I ordered a few days ago was the replacement. The first one I had lasted through A LOT years of abuse yet it still took great pictures before it bit the dust. For a point and shoot, it's a very good camera. It has a decent amount of customization, can auto-focus pretty well, has good image quality, and is easy to use. So, if you can't afford an expensive camera, I would go with this one.
Summary: Got this for a friends wife for him for her Christmas present. She has seen pictures mine takes and liked it. I was lucky to fine one for him. I am very impressed with this camera. I have had mine for about 4 years and I have taken sooooo many pictures and they come out great! I would recomend this camera to anyone. I paid a lot more but I got mine when it first came out.
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.
Summary: there is not one thing i dont like about the camera. the size is small so i cna put it in my pocket, got agreat zoom and it works great ande it was re-furbished without an s and thh price was exceptional.
Summary: I bought this as an upgrade for a prior model. This is my second Olympus camera and I absolutely love it! For anyone who loves taking pictures this an awesome camera at a great price. My niece has a by far more expensive "cool pix" and the picture quality of my Olympus 7010 hands down blows it away! I researched many cameras before deciding on this one and narrowed it down to this and the 7030..
