Very poor quality pictures
4 January 2014
Summary: A nice looking camera, with great battery life and a nice array of settings. HOWEVER, no picture I've ever taken on this has come out well. Even ones that look OKAY on the screen/computer print like an overexposed instant Polaroid.
Summary: This camera took great outdoor pics, but bad indoor pics that were fuzzy and dark. Biggest downfall was that it broke the second time I took it out. It's completely useless now and past the refund date, so it's a waste of money.
Summary: I like their service under warranty. Should I expect 3 years life for a $70 camera? Pic and video quality were good. I am thinking it is their cheaply made line.
Pros: small lightweight and has many functions
Cons: lens go stuck and would not open after one day at the beach. Sent to get repaired which they did under warranty. kind of surprised since wind was blowing that day so must have got sand inside. tech called me b4 sent in to try and fix and almost got it working. major problem now is after 1 year an...
Summary: I only use my this camera lightly and have had it less then a year. the camera is already having problems with the lens retracting and not want to turn on. I takes OK pics but most of the pics tend to be on the dark side. So it requires a lot to fiddling with setting to get just right.
Summary: I'm very surprised anyone would give this camera a good review - but maybe it's their first digital camera or they owned a really, really bad one before. I had the previous olympus pocket digital camera, and it was so much better than this.
Summary: Habe mich für diese Cam entschieden, weil ich für einen halbjährigen Aufenthalt in Asien einfach schöne Erinnerungen auf Bild festhalten wollte, ohne ein Vermögen dafür auszugeben. Die Oylmpus war für meine Zwecke aber leider nicht die richtige Entscheidung.
