Summary: Purchased this camera for work purposes. Pros: Good picture quality (14MP) Simple and fairly priced Cons: A bit slow between pictures Not very sturdy After purchasing and using this camera for a short time, I am convinced there are better options out there. I rated this 4 stars because it functions well and does everything it should in a capable fashion, but from personal experience I know there are better options out there at this price point (Panasonic's Lumix models...
Summary: I messed up my samsung and decided to try something different. Wrong!! I should have bought another samsung. The olympus is ok but at times the picture is not focused and worse from distances, You have to pay more attention on keeping still than taking the pic.
Summary: The picture quality is hit and miss. You havve to be perfectly still or it will blur. I got this for a gift, but I think hat it will be upgraded to something better shortly. I was hoping this would have been an upgrade from the Kodak Easyshare I got him more than 5 years ago, it really wasn't. It is capable of good pictures though.
Summary: Bought this camera for my wife. She loves the camera. I still use an older Olympus. The only shortcoming the new camera has is that it doesn't appear to be as well built as the older one, more plastic and such. The pictures are as good or better than the earlier model.
Summary: This is the second compact Olympus camera I bought in the last 3 years. Unfortunately, I will not be buying another Olympus camera. The last one, VG-120 died after having it for about 10 months. The power indicator light will come on for a couple of seconds-blinking lights and then shut off completely. At first, I thought it was the battery so I bought another battery, had it fully charged and the same problem happened.
