Nice, but not very durable.

Markk, Amazon
29 August 2014
  • Summary: I really liked this camera - it took great pictures, very nice design. It seemed to combine some of the best features of point and shoot and larger cameras. However after about a year or so the zoom mechanism seized up, occasionally working, but nearly always having a problem.

  • Excerpt: The main advantage is the 16 MP BSI CMOS sensor, as compared against the CCD in my Stylus 9010. Video allows 2 full-resolution stills in each clip, I used that a lot. Moon shots and flying gannets show better detail and fewer artifacts than similar shots on my SP-570UZ bridge camera do.

  • Excerpt: I am using my SZ-30MR as a carry-anywhere camera, substituting for both my SP-570UZ 20x zoom 10MP bridge camera and my Stylus 9010 10x zoom 14MP pocket P&S. I appreciate that the SZ-30MR zoom range is wider than that of the SP-570UZ.

  • Excerpt: I have used my new Olympus SZ-30MR for about a week now. I bought it as a potential replacement for my Samsung HZ30W. Prior to that I had a Panasonic TZ5. Let me first say that the Samsung HZ30W is an outstanding travel zoom camera, especially for the price.

Disappointing olympus

J. Campbell, Amazon
9 April 2013
  • Summary: Bought this camera for a holiday in Malta. The camera takes great photos in standard lens but the optical zoom is very disappointing, at full 260mm zoom the grain is unbearable to view so don'texpect too much here. The movie is HD and very good, I have used it to good effect.

Complicated

David Hull "H", Amazon
28 June 2012
  • Summary: I'm giving this a 3 star purely because it is so hard to work out, there are no instruction with this as they seem to think everything is self explanatory...It isn't. When you get the right setting it does take a beautiful photograph and was well worth its money.

Sharp Photo Quality

  • Excerpt: I had been wanting to buy a more advanced digital camera for a while and having saved up some money I decided on this as well as my compact digital camera that I bought a month or so ago. This one is not too pricey but a bit more than most digital cameras and it has quite a nice design to it.
  • Pros: nice design, great zoom and megapixels
  • Cons: battery life

A good all rounder... but...

Mr. T. Withers "Terry", Amazon
17 July 2011
  • Summary: The Olympus is a good all round camera and travel mate. In a relatively small package you get remarkable 24-600mm optical lens, HD movie recording and a good selection of automatic modes.

  • Summary: Sehr schöne Kamera. Für mich aber zu klobig. Sie hat viele Funktionen. Sie macht im hellen gute Bilder. Kann man weiterempfehlen. Nachfolgemodell scheint besser zu sein.
