Pocket Sized Convenience - DSLR Features and Images
12 May 2014
Summary: My criteria for a new camera was simple, it had to fit in my pocket and had to have functions for low light pictures. It also had to have the badge of a camera manufacturer and not an electronics manufacturer. This camera at its regular price is worth the money and purchased as a special it becomes a steal! Battery life is great at and I wish I hadn't purchased two extra batteries, one would be plenty.
Summary: Great basic camera that also has manual settings as you learn more. I would read the manual soon after you buy the camera to get the most out of it. Also Olympus has great on line tips. I am a basic camera user. The one extra I would read first is how to use the panoramic feature and practice before you need to use it on a vacation.
Summary: My Niece researched and found this camera for me. So glad I bought this GEM! Can not say enough good things about it! Recently put together a video I had recorded with it, and the HD clarity is AWESOME! The shutter is sooooo fast!!! GREAT DEAL!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!
Summary: You can believe all the positive reviews of this camera. It is well built and has almost limitless capabilities. The first time I uploaded pictures on to my 23" HD computer screen, I couldn't believe the quality of the photos. They almost look like 3D. I love the camera and have no complaints. I have a specific need for a wide angle lens camera with auto and manual settings and limited zoom. It more than satisfies my needs and expectations.
Summary: I love this small camera with big camera capabilities. It fits in a shirt pocket, and thanks to a fast f1.8 lens has a great low-light capability to capture sharp, good resolution images in dark conditions that I'd swear would require a flash, but doesn't need the fill-in light. The shutter snaps immediately after you push the shutter button, or better yet, has an immediate shutter reaction from the touch screen..
Summary: Yes, it has a tiny 1/2.3" sensor. But it takes great pictures! The size makes it a very discreet little device to slip into a pocket, and you'll get much better shots than with any cell phone camera. You've got a bright lens, so keep the ISO above 1600 and use Noise Filter Low or Off. The camera feels solid in the hand. The included wrist strap is too loose, so buy a replacement to make sure you don't drop the camera.
Excerpt: An excellent pocketable with full manual control apart from focus. It's a well thought out balance between price, sensor size and lens specification. I find the images excellent for a small sensor and if you want to you can shoot RAW. The first thing I noticed about it was how well it felt in the hand, it's comfortable and easy to use.
Summary: Consumer reports rated #1 in category, fully agree, lots of different settings I'll probably need to seriously study so I can fully use this to its capability, bigger than a subcompact its the perfect size to travel with
