Summary: It was a gift for my brother who was vacationing in Australia and New Zealand and wanted a small camera to take with him. He sent pictures throughout the trip and the pictures were clear, broad ranging, good in all weather, and great detail. He enjoyed the size, capabilities, ease of use and quality of pictures. Very happy that he is happy.
Summary: I purchased this prior to x-mas and have used it several times over the past two months. I hadn't purchased a camera for over 7 years and I'm amazed at how easy and how well this camera works. I'm still learning some of the more advanced features, but this camera was a great deal for the price of $130 The videos have been great as well. I have taken several videos of the kids and they are smooth.
Summary: Everything you need in a small camera. I love the Panorama function that more expensive cameras don't have. Not as slim as others of this type, but still fits in your pants pocket. My only complaint is that the flash does not pop up automatically, you have to do it by pushing a switch, even when it's set to Auto. Otherwise, for the price, nice score...
Summary: We chose this camera after consulting Consumer Reports, and thus far, we've been really happy with it. We bought it for my 4 year old for Christmas, and it's easy enough for him to use now, and complex enough for it to grow with him. I expected it to be months before he took any decent pictures, but he's actually taken some pretty good shots already ... along with pictures of fingers.

Summary: a compact, easy to use camera with numerous features at a modest price, but for some reason the pictures do not have the kind of bright colours I used to get from an old Olympus SP550; I experienced the same issue with some other recent Olympus cameras (SP800, PM1)
Summary: I previously used two Nikons, L100 and L110. they were lousy. this Olympus is better in every way. lighter, more compact, bigger picture, better picture, better color and lighting and the battery that charges lasts much longer than the double AA a of Nikon. I can't say enough about this camera. One little irritation was the door covering the USB plug in. Its hard to get open and to keep open so you can plug the cable in. But that is obviously no big deal.
