Summary: Buyer beware: If you are buying from the vendor listed, J&JWC Group, be careful. I just opened my package and the camera is clearly used. The case is scratched front and back, there are fingerprints all over it. I tried to take a picture of the mess with my iPhone but it kept catching a glare.
Summary: This is a garbage camera! Maybe mine is a defective one, but it keeps erasing my photos. It will then give ma a message that says "Write Protect" and won't let me take any more photos. Any photos recently taken are deleted. No menu option to let me try to correct the error either.
Summary: Great use out of it then dropped it maybe around 2 ft and screen no longer came on which makes it worthless. Thouroughly examined and saw water got into side compartment although it was secured shut and locked.
I bought one of these cameras from a local box ...
10 December 2014
Summary: I bought one of these cameras from a local box store ~16-18 months ago. Its life was mostly in the drawer. Battery had to be replaced ~6 months into owner it. Camera is now dead. Cost for repair out of the limited 12 month warranty prohibits the repair. I will never buy another Olympus camera.
