Summary: I'm a chef and I travel with the camera in my work bag whenever I want to take a quick photo of the special of the day it's light-weight handy and takes beautiful photos. This camera is great for someone who is on the go.
Not good for product photos, not point and shoot at all!

Summary: After researching small budget point and shoot cameras I finally bought this one. It is very hard for me to review this product, because my needs are unique. I only take product photos on a table inside the house, with a three point lighting system. Products such as shoes, bags etc. I do not know if this camera is "point and shoot" outside in the daylight when taking a landscape, but inside the house it certainly is not.
Summary: I liked the camera It is alright so far. Normally I can work out the issue in handling in a few frames but I'm having trouble working out the quirks of this camera. When I zoom I can hear the motor twirling as the lens move for focus. It is very annoying but I can deal with since this camera was refurbished. I am so having a harder time figuring out the focus timing of the camera. I still haven't put the camera through any paces yet.
Summary: I wanted a small camera with a good optical zoom. The size is perfect. The zoom works but is clutzy. The lever is on top facing toward the front. An awkward location. and then it is very hard to operate and hold the camera still. The construction of the camera is also crude. It was on sale and if I had paid full price I would return it.
Summary: It takes good pictures and zooms in fine, but after using it for 6 months it suddenly freezes up and I have to remove the battery and reinsert it to reboot it. It then works fine for awhile and then freezes up again. I have to now package it up and send it to Olympus for repair. It's still under warranty but I have to pay the postage to return. Hopefully it is returned repaired and working fine.
Summary: After owning several Olympus cameras this last one has proven to be a let down. The latest design moved the video button to the back upper right corner where it interferes with the handling of the camera and always gets actuated when I am just holding the camera or trying to take a picture. The auto focus on the camera hangs and you must turn the camera off and back on to reset. The picture taking speed of the camera is very slow in both in natural light and with flash.
