Summary: I was hoping that the zoom and the video would work well. However, when I tested it out the anytime you had to zoom you can clearly hear it. When I tested to video it had a weird clicking sound. Overall, the quality and make was not worth it to me. I returned the camera and the additional battery I had bought. It was a good thing I bought it through amazon. I'm going back to my Canon.
Olympus SZ-31MR Digital Compact Camera - Black (16mp, 24x zoom)

Summary: Very disappointed with this camera and have had to return it to Amazon for a full refund. Before installing the software I checked the 'quality' of the pictures etc and I was extremely disappointed and so I am glad that I had taken another reviewers advice and checked the camera first.
Summary: I ordered this camera specifically for a trip to Iceland to film/photograph wildlife based on feedback and reviews on the Amazon site. I could tell the camera was faulty as soon as I took it out of the box - it felt as if there was something loose inside. When I charged the battery and switched the camera on a loud buzzing/whirring noise started in the body of the camera. When depressing the button to take a photo a second louder buzzing sound occured.
Summary: The quality of the photos was very very poor, the video was too loud when played in the pc and in the camera itself. After reading all the reviews and checking the youtube videos I decided to buy this camera but was very disappointed and had to send it back and get a refund. The photos were really blurry and pinkish most of the time even though I used the correct settings.
Summary: I have owned many cameras - from 35mm through to digital. One of my early 35mm cameras was the OM-1. Since migrating to digital with an early Fuji camera I have owned a range of Canon, Panasonic Lumix and Nikon Coolpix as handy cameras to supplement my SLR and DSLR tools. I recently bought the Olympus SZ-31 Traveller out of a sense of nostalgia from my early 35mm days. What a disaster. The camera looks cool. And there it ends.
Summary: Was soll man da groß schreiben außer eins: "nicht empfehlenswert". Es ist mir nicht gelungen auch nur ein annähernd scharfes Bild zu machen. Positiv ist hier nur Amazon zu erwähnen wg. der unkomplizierten Rückabwickelung.
Summary: El producto esta muy bien en general pero me a llegado uno defectuoso: no funciona el altavoz. El problema que tiene es que no se le pueden añadir filtros a la camara y que la devolucion es muy complicada.
