Not sure if it's me or the camera

G. S. Harris, Amazon

  • Summary: At my age, new-fangled electronic equipment is puzzling so the difficulties I found may not reflect the true state. I found it very difficult to find, relabel and edit the photos. There seems to be some jiggle on indoor shots, more than on my old camera. Compared to my neighbor's iPhone, the photos are sharper but darker.

Olympus VR340

Anthie, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted an economic small camera for my upcoming holidays. The camera is fine but for its 16megapixels I really expected much better results. The photos have visible pixels after zooming x3 or x4 which I don't find acceptable. For the price and my purpose it's fine, but still compared to my old iPhone 4S 8 megapixel camera this camera doesn't stand a chance...

Best in lots of sunlight.

  • Summary: I bought this as a compact camera to take to me on a 13 city tour of the UK and norther Europe. I didn't really understand how to best use it until Paris, which was my last stop. I found that I had to overcompensate for exposure to achieve the best photos. If it's overcast or in-doors you won't get very printable shots out of it. The best, most crisp, and zoom-in worthy shots were when there was LOTS of sun.

Discovered the solution - problems with repairs

  • Summary: I like these cameras and have more than one, as I must take 200 pictures a day in my job as a Dog Vacay host. (They are sent to the sent to dogs' families at least once a day if not more often). I have 2 so if the battery needs charging, I don't miss any cuteness. The one design flaw on this camera, in my opinion, was that the door to the battery/memory compartment is plastic, and flimsy, and the pressure from the sim card or battery can cause it to bow, sometimes...

  • Summary: This camera was bought as a replacement for a damaged VR 320. It is obviously a cheaper made product and not as user friendly. Still, for the price, it is a very good buy.

So-so

  • Summary: I am not very experienced with digital cameras and have always just used the camera on my current phone. So, take that into account when reading this review. I found it very difficult to sift through the plethora of instructions for this camera (downloaded from the Internet). I also found it difficult to determine the correct settings for shooting a pic. There is a "Help" feature on the phone, which helped somewhat.

  • Summary: It works fine - when it works. When it doesn't work, neither the seller, nor the mfgr. would take any responsibility for getting it right. Only Amazon was kind enough to give me a discount on my next purchase.

  • Excerpt: I picked one up on sale for about $110 US. So far, a good little pocket camera with a reliable JPEG engine and nice saturated colors, usually an accurate auto WB, and the right amount of sharpening. I like to keep it in P mode and set a few things to taste, especially the WB, which is usually pretty smart, but can be fooled by flourescent lighting. The Fireworks mode is very good, and I had fun using it for july 4th., as it is able to capture about 4 sec. exposure.

  • Summary: My Nikon Coolpix broke after my dog decided to use it as a chew toy, so I received this one as a Christmas gift. This camera is definitely thicker than most other point and shoot digital cameras, so it makes it look a bit dated and feels bulky -- it's definitely not something I'd toss in my bag to take pictures during a girls night out. It also feels cheaper, which is the first thing I noticed when I opened it.
