Summary: On video recording the focus logic "hunts", rendering a movie that cycles in and out of focus. Likewise the brightness logic hunts. This creates terrible videos. I have used a tripod and carefully tried different camera options with no success. I purchased this camera because the user reviews on the camera raved about the good image quality. I am not a novice with photography and camcorders, so I cannot explain those reviews.

Summary: Its almost impossible to focus with the camera. Image stabilization just makes it worse. The shutter speed is so slow that almost all pictures I took were out of focus .. even when there was enough daylight, I am returning the product .
Summary: This is the worst camera ever all of pictures from my concert were ruin dont waste your money. When you snap pictures it takes for ever to shoot and the pocture quality is just plain horrible worst purchase ever is going right back.
Summary: Bought this to replace a point and shoot that died. Worst waste of money ever. The camera takes good pictures when it gets focus outdoors but that's when it gets focus. The zoom switch broke after two days of sightseeing use. PITA to try to get it repaired. Avoid this camera like the plague.
Summary: It is one of the worst cameras I have ever used. I agree with all the others that gave it a bad review. And I suspect if there is one out of thirty that like it that person probably has a vested interest in the product. We have taken so many shots sometimes one after another (when the camera would let us) and one would be good and the next horrible.
Summary: Olympus has had a good reputation in the camera world...or so I thought. My wife bought this camera for me for my birthday, and it is a HUGE disappointment. As another reviewer mentioned, this camera feels like it would break at any moment...light weight plastic construction. When you move the camera in your hand, you can feel something inside the camera move. No joke! Maybe it's the battery? Don't know.
Summary: I had read reviews for this camera in many places. Most of them were really good so I decided to try it. 16 megapixel and 24x optical zoom. Now I am not a camera expert, but I do feel like I can use a camera reasonably well and I am used to using different settings. I can use a camera beyond just point and shoot. The first pictures I took were in my livingroom. I wasn't impressed with the focus and lighting.
