the pictures were fine. Presumably this was just a lemon

Summary: Unfortunately, the camera was defective out of the box. It would freeze up while "on", requiring battery removal to reset it. Tried it for two weeks, hoping the problem would resolve. The lens often fogged up as well. When it did work, the pictures were fine.
Pros: This camera is very easy to operate. Pictures are sharp and crisp. I've always been a fan of Olympus cameras because of the quality of the pictures u get. I'm not a professional photographer, but with Olympus camera, my pictures are flawless. ??
Why would you sell a product without printed instructions????

Summary: I really looked forward to receiving this camera to replace the Olympus camera I already own. I purchased it in order to take it with me on a European vacation, but when it arrived I discovered the instructions were limited to a CD and the printout of the pages would require over 200 pages!
