Summary: This camera had serious issues although mine was the sz-17 same camera all the reviews about great pictures held no good results for me.Took with me on nature & hiking outing to catch wild life and scenic top views and rock over hangs my pictures turned out dull and the 20x zoom rendered some pics...
Very large right side grip - way too big for my hand

Excerpt: Was this review helpful? |
Pros: sorry, didn't use the camera
Cons: The grip on the right side is so exaggerated I cannot comfortably hold the camera, and when I try to the palm of my right hand covers all the controls. I could not hold this for more than a few minutes before my hand would start cramping, so I didn't even try to set it up. Very disappointed.
Arrived fine, but within 6 weeks the shutter release didn't ...

Summary: Arrived fine, but within 6 weeks the shutter release didn't work. Also, as I knew, you can't force the flash and you don't get the sports setting of mutliple rapd-fire pictures with this camera. The zoom is nice, but all this combined, I would not order it again... Am still trying to get it fixed.
Summary: I can not rate this camera. I love the quality of the pictures and particularly the zoom. It it worked, I would give it 5 stars. However, from time to time it does not power up and does not charge.
Summary: Camera did not come with a memory card - didn't open it until we were in Belize and luckily found a Chinese run camera shop who had what we needed. Would think it would come with a memory card.
Summary: Es fällt auf, dass die SZ 17 identisch ist mit der SZ 16. Es handelt sich also offenbar nicht um das Nachfolge- sondern um ein identisches Modell mit neuem Namen (?). Auf der Internetseite von Olympus gibt es auch keinerlei Infos.
Summary: Ich hab sie mir als Allroundkamera für den Preisbereich um 250 Euro gekauft. Hauptkaufgrund war der hohe optische Zoom. Verwenden wollte ich sie eigentlich fast nur im Automatikmodus, nur: Es gelingt mir nur SELTEN, mit dieser Kamera, mal ein Bild im Display SCHARFZUSTELLEN!
