Reconditioned no deal! Purchased from highly regarded The Bargain Deal Store

Summary: I received this camera from above mentioned "other seller" shipped & guaranteed by Amazon, but Stabilization did not work! Beautiful looking camera, lightweight, small, but 16 MP pictures about the same as my 8 MP iPhone 5! The Zoom function to 24x, even worse! I would have liked to have had it replaced, but returns only allows refund, so maybe as a "new" camera I will have better luck! "Busy" stays on constantly , no matter how steady I hold camera.
Cr@p - POS -- Paid more than the price listed, gift for wife -- BLURRY ALL THE TIME - my 10 yr old son inherited
MARS from LA, Amazon

Summary: Purchased as a gift for my wife who wanted a lighter camera than a Cannon, previously purchased (which works great). I bought her this POS and it takes BLURRY pictures all the time regardless of settings. I wish I could give a negative rating. We gave it to my 10 yr old son as a camera for trips and he is complaining about this garbage as well. I'm just going to donate it to charity and take the write-off.
Summary: Zero Stars: This camera is really fancy, but it has spent more time at the warranty repair facility than I've had it. It came back from the repair facility the first time with 2 new problems. I don't think I'll try another Olympus product, should have bought a Cannon product.
Summary: Update- after further playing with this camera. I have since gave the camera away and it is not even worth one star. Olympus was not helpful with fixing the problems. Nice sleek, pretty attractive camera. I received this camera yesterday, and as someone who loves to take pictures I couldn't wait to play with it. I love the different "magic" modes. Fish Eye is definitely fun. Its shutter speed on high surprised me.
Summary: I really wanted a digital camera that could take good quality pictures in low light, no fuzziness and speed between shots after using a cheapish digital camera for a number of years. From all the other reviews of the Olympus SZ-30MR it seemed ideal and affordable!! No complaints as far as Amazon were concerned as the product arrived very promptly - however, I just tried a few test shots indoors on my little son with a bright light on and all photos that came out were...
Summary: My Son's Crayola 1.3 MP Camera makes the same quality photos in the hands of a little child, what a waste of money , returned at once and buying something else now... Colors are absent, blurry and not well focused, auto mode takes you on a ride. useless. That's enough to put your money on something else i guess.
Summary: At the moment it's a 1, because I've been sent 2 cameras now and both times, they've been faulty, but I don't know whether it's the actual camera or something I can do to sort the problem out. Both cameras when I've turned them on, have the wrong settings. E.g. if I want to take a 3D picture and put it on that setting, it's actually the iAuto setting, or if I put it on the scan setting, it's the P setting. I've tried resetting the camera to sort it out but nothing works.
Summary: I bought the sz-30mr not long ago to use as a pocket all-rounder camera. On paper it all sounds good but in reality not so much. Without over exaggerating I'd say this camera is possibly the worst I have ever used. I genuinely have seen £50 cameras that take better quality photos. Having tested all its options I could not believe I could not get one even average quality image. I thought at first that maybe I was being fussy as I normally use a dslr but sadly not.
Summary: Nach etlichen Versuchen und auch mit Hilfe der Olympus Hotline ist es mir nicht gelungen, auch nur ein scharfes Foto mit diesem Gerät zu machen. Nach Zusendung einiger Probefotos zu Olympus wurde mir mitgeteilt, dass das Gerät in Ordnung ist. Das läßt dann nur noch den Schluss zu, dass das Gerät selber (vielleicht aufgrund seines Superzooms) nicht ausgereift ist.
