Summary: I had this same model and it got broken on a trip. Absolutely loved it. I looked on-line, found this and ordered it. My problem isn't with the camera - it's the directions. A day or so after the camera was shipped, I received a notice it was on the way - AND, Oh By The Way - it stated that all the instructions and manual are in Japanese. This should have been stated in the original description - I feel it was very misleading.
Summary: I was sold a gray market camera. The charger cord was the 240 volt European style and Olympus USA was not able to match the S/N for a USA warranty. I contacted Amazon and Preetham said "While we shipped your order, the inventory was provided to us by a seller, and I'm not able to send you a replacement." I would probably like the camera more if I could charge the battery to use it!
Summary: Very Disappointed with product. Can't shoot still photos with video in Hi-res (1080P 60). When using Hi-Res (IAuto Setting) the flash does not engage! Too many querks with this camera. Don't believe what Olympus video shows! Left several emails and received no responses to my questions. Gave it 2 stars because it does take nice pictures but could have been much better if the features shown in their video were obtained in an easier manner (if they really work at all)!
Summary: I have been using an Olympus C55 Zoom for quite a few years now and found it to be a very good camera. The zoom is just 5x optical so I wanted a camera with a bigger zoom and the SZ-3!MR seemed ideal. However I am not very impressed with the image sharpness and detail of the SZ-31MR, it is nowhere near as good as the C55. For me image quality is the most important thing and as far as I concerned the SZ-31 is not that good.
Мелкие, но досадные недостатки полностью испортили хорошее начинание

Summary: И все в ней хорошо (особенно корпус и зум), НО цветопередача - это полное г........!!! Красный на солнце куда-то испаряется и выгорает до невнятно оранжево - серого. Выраженные оптические искажения при съемке с близкого расстояния.
Pros: 1. Металлический корпус 2. Мощный зум
Cons: 1. Некорректная цветопередача 2. Оптические искажения при съемке с близкого расстояния
