Olympus Stylus 850 SW review

I am currently using this camera until my Fuji F10 (hopefully) gets repaired.
It's an ok camera for someone who likes to shoot most of their photos on auto.

I must say the camera is very fast, and the flash recharges quickly enough to satisfy the need.

Problems:

I found a lot of noise, even in 100 ISO, and the flash is a bit too bright, making some of the photos very hot.

The camera does feature a white balance option, but it also disables the flash in these settings.

Not being used to having the lens to the side of the camera, my first few shots had my fingers in the way, very much like a 110 camera.

Good thing it's digital and I don't have to pay for those finger shots anymore.
