Excerpt: On day one I took photos from my SZ-16ihs and they just hit my tired old eyes sweet spot, there's something special about this camera. I bought it for a major trip and it was a fantastic choice, when travelling size and convenience matter, if it doesn't fit in a pocket it becomes a burden and dare I say it even on a holiday far away from home if it's too big for the pocket then it'll spend a bit of time locked away.
Summary: This camera is great! I replaced an older Canon camera and the difference is night and day. Have only had it about a week, but I love it. So far it takes almost all pictures without flash and they come out great. Movies are also high quality. You also get a very good zoom magnification number in a camera which is not very thick with the telephoto collapsed, which I also like a lot. This allows the camera to fit in a smaller camera case which is not very bulky.
Summary: One of the BEST snap shot cameras out there. I have had this for about two months and it really is so easy to take good pictures. The on screen real time controls are well placed and give you just the right amount of info. I also like that when you sent it to flash/timer/ or other adjustments it stays with that. My other cameras always went back to default. A real pain when doing timing shots because you always seem to do 2 or 3 at a time. So far I give this a big 5.

Summary: This camera is very easy to use and the quality of photo is quite good. The results of the zoom feature have surprised me. I received this camera about two days before leaving on a trip and used it more than my regular camera. This was a very good purchase for my needs.

Summary: Excellent camera. Superior to the Sony cameras I have had. I don't know why Olympus cameras are not advertised or promoted. I have had Olympus digital cameras since they were first introduced to the public many years ago. My husband has Olympus cameras too. I switched to Sony at one point and had to return the camera for malfunctioning.
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.
