A lot in a little package

Craig, B&H Photo
21 July 2008
  • Summary: There are many exposure presets that are potentially quite useful. I especially found the +/- exposure settings preview helpful in challenging light situations, to see ahead of time what exposure would be best for what I wanted. The 5x optical zoom is a real plus as well. Battery life is moderate. My main complaint is the lack of a veiwfinder, which can make it difficult to see what is in the camera's field of view if the sun is behind you and glaring off of the screen.
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Easy Setup, Short Lag Time

  • Summary: Our daughter loves her new camera - she says it is perfect and cute! We do find that the battery runs out of power more quickly than we would expect. We definitely recommend having a spare one fully charged and ready. I takes great pictures though!
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Easy to Keep Clean, Short Lag Time, Strong Construction
  • Cons: the battery

Pretty Pink camera for good quality flash pictures

SapphireSunflowr, Dooyoo
29 January 2009
  • Summary: I was given the pink Olympus 840 as a birthday present, after the death of my other camera. The first thing I noticed was how slim and light the camera is - it's tiny compared to my other one but the zoom lens is fantastic. I tried it out photographing jewellery, as this is my main use for a camera . At first, the pictures I took when zooming in on a bracelet were blurred, when I didn't use a flash it was blurred and when I did it flashed off the metal.
  • Pros: Colour, weight, size, quality, features
  • Cons: Pictures without flash often blurry

Olympus µ[MJU:] 840 Great camera!

tttherese, Ciao
18 August 2008
  • Excerpt: "I recently purchased this camera and must say that I really like it. The selling point for me was that it has a 5X optical zoom, which very few compact digital cameras in this price range have. The zoom is fantastic quality. The photographs are vibrant and of very good quality. The one thing I have noticed is that the colours of the photograph shown on screen do not always match prints, but I believe this is common. I found the menu hard to master ...
  • Pros: 5X optical zoom, very good picture quality, easy to use menu
  • Cons: Flash is not bright enough over a distance in dimly lit areas

ÓTIMA CÂMERA.

paulo cezar miranda, Bondfaro
9 August 2010
  • Summary: BOA CÂMERA, SUPEROU MINHAS EXPECTATIVAS. ÓTIMO CUSTO BENEFÍCIO. DICA: COMPRE BATERIA RESERVA.
  • Pros: CÂMERA BONITA, LEVE, BATERIA DURÁVEL, QUALIDADE DA IMAGEM É BOA, DISPAROS SÃO BEM RÁPIDOS (COM FLASH OU NO MODO BURST), POSSUI VÁRIOS MODOS PARA AJUDAR NA HORA DO CLICK.
  • Cons: O VISOR NÃO INFORMA A CARGA DA BATERIA COM PRECISÃO. MUITAS VEZES A CARGA ESTÁ ACABANDO E O VISOR INFORMA QUE ESTÁ CHEIA, E DE REPENTE A CÂMERA DESLIGA POR FALTA DE ENERGIA. ATÉ DESCOBRIR ISSO FIQUEI ASSUSTADO POIS PENSEI QUE FOSSE DEFEITO, MAS NÃO, É APENAS BATERIA. O MELHOR É TER 2 BATERIAS PARA EVITAR SURPRESAS QUANDO PRECISAR DA CÂMERA, COMO JÁ ACONTECEU COMIGO.
