Summary: In the day and age of camera phones this was a great gift for my 9 year old daughter who was wanting a camera and not ready to have a phone with a camera and an expensive service plan. I was surprised at how well it took pictures. It is small enough that she is able to carry it around and has brought it on many field trips with no problems. If you are looking for a point and shoot that takes great pictures and has some neat digital features this is a great option.
Summary: What a nice little camera, actually shirt-pocket size at last. Everything seems nicely fitted and finished. My open-box one included the battery, a charger, two cables (1 for charger and data transfer; and 1 for composite TV). They include the useless CD that comes with these things. There's a strong grey wrist strap. All was in excellent shape, except for one crushed corner of the outer box that made no difference.
Summary: I have been using this camera for over a month now, taking more than 800 photos, both outside and indoors, in varying lighting situations. I am an amateur photographer of the nature found in my yard, relying on the autofocus and point-and-shoot capabilities of two other digital long zoom cameras (Olympus C740 and Canon Power Shot SX30). I puchased this camera for a light, pocketable option for my hiking trips. The Olympus VR-340 camera is surprisingly good for the cost!
It is a middle size camera that fill my expectations .

Summary: this camera as any other Olympus has it's unique design , that's what I like about this brand ; from the old point and shoot models with the sliding doors and hidden screws (which I love it ), to the new ones, are all challenging for me as a technician . This particular one is recommended as a family camera , it has all what anybody needs to have funny pictures .
Summary: I like the actual camera, tho. the instructions for using it are poor and often totally obscure. It's twice as good at scenery shots as my Bloggie, but i need the next stage camera up with more powerful zoom. i'm really enjoying this tho..
Summary: Very Nice Camera. I use a Camera Very Frequently and have in the past bought other brands, well I came back to Olympus and this Camera I am very pleased with. Easy to use, Takes nice pictures. I got a great Price and Very Very fast shipping.
