Had it for one year. Sharp pictures, excellent UI, excellent form factor. Wireless remote works great for night photography! Problems: Low light focus.

I bought it, I love it...excellent. Yes, I did notice the difficulties in focusing however, in dark liht, or on a white wall. I can not get the camera to focus on a white wall, no matter the light. I found that if I make the focus range wide, and when trying to focus let something small, like a lamp be part of the focus area...it works. Problems: Focusing is difficult

serious battery life issues I recently got the camera (brand new) and like it very much. It's metal body looks and feels great, has a lot of features including manual controls and very easy to navigate menu interface. However, I have a serious battery life problem because I can only take 18 pictures before the battery is depleted! ( using LCD screen, w/ about 50% taken with flash in warm temperatures) I doubt that this is usual for a brand new and fully charged battery. Also, the camera ...

I have had my Optio330 for 6 months now and I love it too.If you read the book and experiment with the settings ,you will get great shots. I have 2 batteries that were included when I bought the camera and I have the cable to hook up to the computer & TV so we have instant photos to send etc. I use the ACD systmes photo program and send links to people when I have lots of photos.That way I can still keep the high resolution for viewing and family and Friends get a great photo. Its a super ...

Worst possible images ever! I just bought this after carefully reviewing other compact digicams and i am totally disappointed with it! Every image i take comes out blurry & grainy, like a friend's Kodak DX3700 i had tried out. Is it just me or are all you users out there getting the same image quality??? I previously had a Olympus D360 (1.3 MegaPIxel) and then a C2040 (2.1 MegaPixel). Both gave EXCELLENT results and my last Olympus C2040 gave razor sharp pictures with excellent contrast. I ...

Shortly after purchase many things quit working. It would not zoom, delete nor display previous photos taken. I sent it back and it was 6 weeks before they returned it. I tested it and thought all features were working when suddenly the 4 way controller and set-up program quit working. I have just returned it again. I suggested they replace it this time.

Just get to play with this camera for 2 days and I reliased that other then small and ease of use, it is not really worth the money to have one. If you are a person going for high quality and very fast focusing speed, I do recommend you not to get this. Problems: Battery life is very short, only can take around 30-50. Focusing is slow and something it can't focus when it is too near. Zooming seems has problem too. During night, the quality is very bad. However, day time they do produce good ...

I have owned three digital cameras including the Optio 330 and we honestly picked this camera primarily on it's size. As some reviewers have mentioned, a camera is only good if you have it with you and this camera is definitely small enough to take anywhere. I find it to have an amazing amount of features for it's size plus it is extremely intuitive to use. I browsed the manual when we bought the camera and haven't had to look at it again since. Picture quality is very clear, but somehow ...

as my first digital camera, I find that I use it more than a manual mostly due to size and ease of use. It seems very responsive. I seem to have difficulty taking night shots although I have tried various methods. I get a lot of blur while trying to take night shots. Normally I don't take pictures well, but digital seems to help. Problems: Just the night thing. I am pretty sure its me, but in this instance, the setting are not as easy to follow as lets say the normal day light settings.
