Better cameras available for the money. Good 1st time kids camera. Problems: Takes poor pictures inside. Great all around outside shots. (just don't move too much, has No shake stailization) Do yourself a favor and go to the Canon SD line.

I got this camera a month ago and I was dissapointed about it. It has big problems with focus and it eats batteries like hell... After less than 30 shots with flash, a set of 2000 mA/h Ni Mh batteries are finished. This camera has a lot of noise in low light, and it gets noisy pics even in bright sunlight.

Well, I had expected a little "more" from this camera. Takes lousy pics inside. Best outside shots. Picture quality quite poor either way. Would do nicely as a kids first camera. But even then I would still feel guilty for giving them this camera.

I used different cameras last few years, this one i've bought few days ago and am very pleased with it's image quality (regarding it's a compact camera) it's lightweight, very good power management (2 AA can work much longer with this camera then with those Li-Ion or 4 AA, probably because smaller LCD that is also very good) Problems: Only thing that bother me is that it have movie recording but only in 320x240 and QTM format, i guess it would be better to put MPEG4 and higher resolution

Overall the camera takes faiirly good pictures in bright sunlight. Not good for night shot. Very few factory accessories for this camera. Was DISCONTINUED ^ months after being released and Olympus is not offering any factory support on the OLYMPUS Web page. Problems: AS far as changing settings is more difficult then most cameras
