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 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.
Summary: Just bought it and already far exceeds my expectations. Have taken photos here around the house and it is excellent. The zoom is outstanding, I've zoomed in on some birds out side and it brings then in like I have then in the palm of my hand. Recommended to one and all..
Summary: This is my third Olympus Camera. And the SZ15 has so many fine capabilities to make the shooting experience an enjoyable pastime. I recently submitted a photo of an sunset to a local TV station on FB and have received over 400 likes for the pictures. Am looking forward to taking more pictures in the future with a very compact and functional digital camera.
Summary: I bought this tiny camera for use as a" stills "camera, with a powerful zoom, high resolution,and "creative" settings,to experiment with artistic compositions,and effects, which I could carry in a pocket .(If you are encumbered with extra bulky gear you will miss opportunities for that spontaneous unpredictable shot, when it occurs.) If you want primarily video content you should really purchase a more specifically designed video camera.
Summary: Delivery within three days.Very Securely packaged. Olympus produce cameras of quality construction at competitive prices, and have always been at the cutting edge of compact camera development for many years. Have tried several of their well known competitors models over the years,but return to Olympus. Amazed at how such a small compact can accommodate the lens system for such a powerful zoom lens. Feels right in the hand,and is truly" pocket sized".
