Good little camera. You have to read the manual to learn to set it right.

  • Summary: Nice little point and shoot camera. It came with an online manual to download. Pros: Takes great pictures if you use the right setting. Took it to the Grand Canyon shortly after getting it. Amazed at the depth of field for the canyon - the layers, the colors, just fabulous. Cons: There are 2 places to set the scenes, and I couldn't find the ones for indoors, parties, etc. without consulting the manual. It's hard to figure out how to choose an item from the menu.

  • Excerpt: This is the best little camera, it out preforms my $ camera. It's very easy to use, compact and does what I need it to do. My only problem is that the CD that it came with does not play in any of my devices. But I was able to figure out how to use it anyway. I made the right decission.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Small / Compact

Great cam for the money but a little limited.

  • Summary: Its an older model so I picked it up for $78. That alone should stop any negative opinion but price aside--it has a great optical zoom for a small, inexpensive camera. Its much easier to set up than my previous cams including two other Olympus models. Very friendly menu. The only drawbacks I can find are LONG focus times and LONG zoom time. Sometimes you have to try to zoom or unzoom, let off on the button and start again.

Broke very quickly

  • Summary: The scrolling button at the back broke within 6 months of purchase and moderate use. I can now scroll through menu selections and photos in one direction only; and I can't erase anything. It makes changing any settings, like turning off the flash, for example, ridiculously tortuous. Pretty good camera otherwise, though. Good zoom. Autofocus is problematic. Wish I could exange it.

Review Update

  • Summary: I had the same problem dogsmom had on her post of September 8, 2014. Took it out of the box, installed the battery and card, hooked up the charger, plugged into a wall outlet and the red light came on indicating it was charging. Came back about 2 hours later, light was off and camera wouldn't do anything. Very disgusted. This is an update to my previous review. I returned the defective camera and ordered another one, same make and model.

Great pics and great price but got issues

  • Summary: I missed the fact that it could only use built in rechargeable battery. So if battery runs out while out for a days worth of photos you cant quickly replace the batteries and keep going. Also keeps having some kind of comm problem with memory card. Will start asking on powerup if you want to reformat (even tho if you say yes it will error out). You need to then stop open it up remove the card and then reinsert it. Great pictures and great size and price.

This is quite a good little camera for being less than $100

  • Summary: This is quite a good little camera for being less than $100. I only take pictures occasionally, so I wanted a simple camera that took good pictures, and I didn't want to spend that much. I'm satisfied with my decision to go with this one. It feels well enough made - it has some weight to it without being heavy. It will fit in your pocket, but I got a simple case for it just to protect the screen and cushion it against dropping.

excellent value and quality in this price range

  • Summary: Awesome camera for the price. Pictures are excellent using default settings. Can get some really great photos if you take the time to use some of the settings. Drawbacks are no view finder (screen only) and the screen has no protection. Movies are limited to 20 seconds and can take a full minute to process. Pictures at night are just OK. Although I've gotten some good shots of moon glow through trees, it took a lot of experimentation to get.

  • Summary: Worse than the older Olympus I had which just wore out. Lots of things that just don't work very well. I would not buy it again.
