Summary: I love this camera! It's so easy to use that I've taken literally hundreds of pictures since I got it a month ago. While it does have so many settings and special features, you don't have to mess with them if you just want to take a picture, just point and shoot, and they always come out great! I am glad I went with the Olympus, they have a reputation for making great cameras and this is no exception, the picture quality is fantastic!
Olympus Stylus 7040 is a great point and shoot camera!

Summary: I bought this camera based on the Olympus reputation. This camera has great resolution, easy point and shoot features and delivers a crisp, clear picture with true colors. I use my camera most often for internet pictures and it delivers here as well. The only problem I have with it is using the IB software can be rather confusing and conflicts with some other software programs I use.
Summary: Camera has many features that I will have to read up on. The setup was easy . Just had to follow the instructions after my computer recognized the camera was plugged into the USB port. It took about 2 minutes for some reason. I thought nothing was working until it popped up on the screen of the PC with instructions. I wish it had an external battery charger that didn't require the camera to charge the batteries.
Summary: I purchased this camera for my wife to use. She does not want to learn how to use a DSLR. I read many reviews and tried to find a camera that she could take videos as well as stills with ease (each has a separate one touch start button).This camera fits the criteria and then some. The size is perfect for her and the picture quality is excellent. She wanted to be able to take videos and at 720 HD on our 50" SONY HDTV...WOW.
Pros: Excellent video, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom
Excerpt: Нормальные снимки можно получить только снимая на улице в безоблачную погоду. Во всех остальных случаях - врет по цветам и шумы на фотографиях страшные. Что тому причиной, слабая матрица или косяки в прошивке - не знаю. Исо из меню регулируется только в режиме "P", создается впечатление, что при неидеальном освещении прошивка выкручивает исо на матрице, из-за этого и шумы.
Pros: компактность 7х оптический зум нормальный софт в комплекте хорошо снимает видео
Cons: неудобное меню для зарядки используется только оригинальный разъем/кабель
