Summary: I just bought this camera not even 4 months ago, and it stinks when you take pictures and zoom in they r blurry, you can not see what your shooting at when it is dark, for example i went to the arts festival took a pic of the american flag and even though it was dark the flag pole had a light on it but the picture was dark you barely can see it, and shooting video forget it , i video tape my friends performaces when they dance/sing and even though it is a dance club and...
Summary: I have had this camera for 3 months and am impressed with how much it does well. Great Zoom range and very good flash for its size. It takes sharp pictures and is easy to handle. I am disappointed with the color as it appears washed out in Landscape mode.
Summary: I've owned Olympus cameras in the past and that is one reason I bought this one. Like some of the other reviews, blurry pictures. I haven't used it with a tripod since it is small and meant to be used while on vacation. The rear screen is almost impossible to see in bright sunlight and it does not reproduce the actual picture very well (by this I mean the actual photo on a computer is much better than what you see on the back of the camera except for low level light...
Summary: I have only had my SZ-15 for a week now but I have played with it off and on and find it a marvelous little point 'n shoot. I have went from a 35mm, down to smaller and smaller digitals thru the years. Decided that they have finally have gotten the little ones as good as the SLR size. No, it will not do everything but this little camera is a workhorse. The pictures have been great even in low light (using flash of course). The easy of use is marvelous.
Summary: I was disappointed in the camera. The charging cord is very short, and we found that when taking the photos the stability is not good, more are blurry and fuzzy than not. It did not have a card included or an instruction book. I will return it and try something different.
Summary: received this camera for Christmas 2012 and I am quite happy with it. I carry it everywhere as the size fits nicely into my purse and is easier to use than my other digitals. I have had some issues with macro focusing as of late which is frustrating. Don't fee that it is user end as this just started and seems to correct if I shut the camera off and the turn it back on. That is a bit disappointing as I have only had the camera 6 months.
Summary: I absolutely love this camera. It is amazing at all the things it can do. It was easy to just start taking great picture without having to read anything. I just now read the instruction manual and am amazed even more at it. The magic filters are so much fun, then all the different scene settings, pets etc. The firework pictures were fantastic. My grandkids got those little sparklers and it is amazing the pictures of those - the detail.
Summary: I just received this camera a few days ago and am very happy with it! I have been fiddling around with it to get used to it. Thank heavens for digital photography and rechargeable batteries - I don't have to worry about wasting money on film and batteries. I have been taking some pictures around the area to get used to it and find it really easy to use. The camera has great capabilities but it is also very easy to use for basic shooting.
