Olympus Stylus 7040 14 MP Digital Camera with 7x Wide Angle Dual Image...
29 April 2013
Summary: I have enjoyed this camera, this is a late review. I'm now buying a new camera that has 1080p instead of the 720 that this camera has. I would love to keep this one, but the 1080p is what I wanted in the first place, I just wish I had spent a little more so I wouldn't have to stop using this one.
Camera stopped functioning after only 1.5 years of very light usage

Summary: The camera functioned fine until April 2013 where after not being used for about 5 months the focus capabilities of the camera failed. The camera remains in a state of de-focus. the auto focus function is not working and the zoom functions have stopped working.
Summary: I purchased this camera as a replacement for a 7010 that was dropped (screen broke). While the picture quality seems ok, this 7040 camera is not anywhere near the same quality as it's predicessor. It feels very lightweight and "cheap".
Summary: We bought this camera to replace my wife's older Olympus camera that stopped working after a hard drop (understandable). After playing around with this camera for a little while, I began to understand and like the multiple features.
Summary: CAMERA WAS TOTALLY DEFECTIVE, SENT IT BACK FOR A REFUND. I HAVE HAD THIS CAMERA BEFORE AND I LIKE THE CAMERA, HOWEVER THIS ONE WAS DEFECTIVE UPON ARRIVAL. I WILL NOT BUY A CAMERA FROM THIS RETAILER AGAIN. [...]
Summary: This is a really nice camera and it does all that the description claims. You do need to charge the battery when you first get it and that was the hardest part for me...I'm impatient and I wanted to try it out!
