Very simple camera.

  • Summary: It's a nice camera. Nothing too special about it. The price is great. Came exactly as pictured. The photos are very clear. However, the 'hd' video isn't exactly all that great. Make sure you get an SD card! Otherwise you can't do much with this. If you're looking to take simple photos, at a good price, get this camera!

Bargain for the casual photographer

  • Summary: I frankly bought this based on brand recognition and price, and I'm not disappointed. I want something I can throw in my purse on trips and have decent pictures to share with friends. The battery life is good (although I keep a spare in my purse just in case). The usb connection is not like my other gizmos (phone, Kindle), so I would have to carry a different cable, but removing the SD card to transfer pictures is easy enough. Overall, I'm very pleased with it.

Enjoying the camera

  • Summary: As a teacher I find it important to have a camera that I can use easily. I have had the worst problems with all the Nikon cameras that are this size. I figured I would give Olympus a try since my mom has had one of these for a few years and not had any problems. I have to say right now the feature I am loving most is that I can charge it on the go in my car or with my computer. I will update later if the camera has any problems. Thus far I am having fun with it.

Takes great pictures!

  • Summary: We bought this camera for our younger daughter due to her old camera taking blurry pictures. So far, the camera seems to take great pictures and video and is easy enough for an 8 year old to manage. The battery charge lasts a long time. No complaints!

Point and Shoot, Easy!

  • Summary: We have had this camera for over a year now and I love the auto settings, its just point and shoot when you need it and also when you have a moment and want something speacial there are alot of settings to get the perfect shot. The camera is very tough, yes I dropped it a couple times. Olympus has been in the camera business for alot of years and this camera proves thier quailty!

Digital Camera

Cosmic Jester, Amazon

  • Summary: I really like the auto focus and face detection of this camera. You can also set the ISO to take 3 photos at a time if you like. The zoom could be a little better but I can live with it. I recommend downloading Olympus Viewer 3 for editing your photos. With 14MP you won't really have to do much editing. Just a little crop here and there. I would highly recommend this camera to anybody looking for an excellent pocket size camera for everyday use.

Nice small, easy to use camera & holds 56 3mb photos without a SD card

csmith, Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: I prefer simple cameras and use it on Auto even though it has many technical features which are described in it's 76 page online manual which I will never use. The 3" LCD is large enough so I don't need my glasses shooting, but do for the controls. It will easily fit in a shirt pocket. My only critique is it is smooth to the touch on old, battered hands and plugging the USB cord into it is a slight problem .
