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: DON'T BUY THIS CAMERA! I just used it for the first time on a trip - 14 days total. A lot of things are wrong with it. Very poor battery life, first of all. It used up two fully charged batteries each day, and on many days, I had to use my tablet computer to make additional photos after the two batteries were completely dead. Second, it takes too long for a photo to be recorded before the camera is ready for the next shot, and I used a variety of memory cards.
Summary: I bought this camera after watching the Gadget Show after they highly recommended it. The cannot have tried the video side of it because on playback there is a ratchet sound coming from it and is very audible when no sound, music or vocal, is being recorded. Greatly disappointed so I returned it to Amazon and got a refund.
Summary: Having struggled with my very broken old Nikon coolpix for the last year I was so looking forward to receiving this camera for Christmas, and enjoyed playing around with the various different modes over the Christmas period. All the photos looked great on the camera display but when it came to uploading them to my laptop I was so disappointed - regardless of which setting I was using (and I did try them all), any photos taken without a flash, even with a reasonable...
