Olympus C-5500 Sport Zoom review

Nice feature set for a compact camera. It is lightweight, has a fast startup time, and great time lapse feature. The 5x zoom is really great when you can't get close enough to the subject.

Problems:

Battery life is appalling. It needs really fresh NiMh to run at all. Mine has a current leak that runs the stored batteries dry in about 15 days of non use.

Flash is under powered. I have a C-3030z that is much better on both flash power and battery life.
