Summary: I have purchased several Olympus digital cameras in the past. I am very pleased with the performance and features. Although the 12mp picture quality is available, I seldom use that level of quality. It is very difficult to send very large video files over the internet. The video recording feature is certainly functional, not the best in low lighting but fine in general use. The zoom is smooth and gets the job done. For under $100 I am very please with this camera.
Summary: I'd look for a better camera, but this isn't bad. Got it at Fries for the same price - but that was earlier during October of last year.
Pros: Takes good close pictures. Daytime pictures are pretty decent. Working audio with video recording function instead of silence. Small - good for holding in a pocket.
Cons: Absolutely terrible for nights and/or low-light situations. It's embarrassing on how terrible this function is - NIGHT MODE DOES NOTHING TO FIX IT. Takes the camera forever to process, and by the time it processes, you get nothing but blur. Zoom is limited. Camera only records up to 800x600. Weird clicking noise has mysteriously come up but has not yet affected the operation of the camera.
Summary: This product has several crappy things and some good things about it. Crappy: Menu is hard to figure out and menu selection is painful LCD screen is of low resolution Nice ones: Light and handy Only camera at this price range providing rechargable batteries Nice picture and video output Altogether its value for the money u pay for. Dont expect too much..Just click and take pics and videos and put carry it on ur pocket. Dont play with menu..keep as it is.
Summary: This is not the type of camera you would expect from Olympus I have purchased other products from them and none of them have ever felt this cheap. Although I was told this was a new camera it felt like it was refurbished. I refused to turn off or on at times,could not view images on memory card without the camera freezing and the lens sometimes doesn't retract. I would not recommend this camera to someone who is serious about quality.
