  • Summary: H have an olympus PHD (push here dummy) camera and love it. When I bought this camera I thought it was similar but this camera does so many things I am confused with working it I am NOT an avid camera buff but I am not stupid either but this camera is very confusing.

Photo quality not that great

Penelope Pepperpants, Amazon

  • Summary: We purchased this to replace another waterproof camera (Sony) that crapped out recently. We really wanted to like this one, but the photo quality was much less crisp than our last one. As you are preparing to take the picture everything looks super clear and crisp on the screen, but the second you take the picture everything turns slightly blurry.

  • Summary: I used this camera one time it had a defective zoom it would shut the camera off. Only way to get it to turn on was to open the battery compartment.
  • Pros: Get the extended coverage
  • Cons: Broke or defective first use so coverage was great

Works

KMP100, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: This camera works as a good point and shoot and is fairly intuitive. It takes pretty good photos for a point and shoot and has some cute features. However there are two things which keep it from being a great product , 1) the clicking in the background of the video, and 2) it does not shoot raw. The clicking has ruined some video I had planned to use as part of a presentation, and the absences of raw means that you can't really blow up portions of the photographs.

User Review

  • Summary: This camera is pretty great for the price! The video is amazing and there are so many different effects to do to your pictures. There are many different settings for the camera as well, it helps get the best quality picture, you can actually see the difference when you use those settings vs. some cameras you change the setting and don't notice it. Also there is a slow motion effect that you can use on this camera to make cool videos.

Could Be Better

Jeff Baker, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: I like the camera. It has great style and the overall functions are very good. I've a number of this style, just older. However, I'm disappointed with digital zoom pictures. They don't come in clear, and the image stabilizer it not as good as it should be in this setting. There is a setting on the camera labeled as "Super-Res Zoom", but I can't get seem to find it, no matter what I try.

Photo quality concerns

  • Summary: The 16mp photos are not quite as good as my old Olympus with fewer mp. Did like the night shots I was able to get. But I am disappointed in the overall photo quality.

Okay, but could be better

Sulsky Roony "Sully", Amazon
5 November 2013
  • Summary: This camera has a lot of potential, however it also has a couple of major drawbacks. Pros: - Nice features like video/picture combination and 360 degree panorama - Good photos when lighting is sufficient - Decent battery life Cons: - Clicking/hammering sound in video playback. Reported to the manufacturer (Olympus) who responded that it is due to the auto-focus mechanism and the placement of the microphone.
