Image quality is good for a 3.2MP camera (as long as you have fresh batteries or a AC adapter). I bought it as a open box model. Came with the manual, CD, wrist strap, 16MB XD-Card, and 2 AA arkaline batteries. Bought it for US $280 in 2003. I presumed Olympus company made this camera well since I had many other camera from them such as PEN-F, other SLRs and Point and Shoot. However, this camera was a dud. I would not reccommend this camera, even if you recieve it for free, since it ...

Good picture quality, easy to use. Problems: Battery life is horrible, even with lithium batteries, I was able to only get about 60-70 shots. The battery meter is useless, comes on when the battery is already dead. Night mode is terrible, shots always come out blurry. No sound mode on video.

This was my first real digital camera and the reason I will never ever buy another Olympus again, no matter the characteristics. I bought this camera in Austria sometime in 2003 and paid for it 300EUR, which was a huge amount of money for such a piece of junk camera, as I was to find out for myself later. Problems: First of all, the battery life is so bad that after only a few pictures (2-3) using flash and LCD the indicator shows the battery as being almost empty and gives out a warning ...

It takes pictures for a few minutes that look decent. Problems: This piece of junk EATS batteries. If you put fresh batteries in, it will usually say that they are near death (turning the camera off and on again then shows they are full). If you leave the batteries in the camera, they die in about 10 hours. In all, I can get 5-10 pictures in a day before the batteries die. The same batteries in my Canon last over a month and I can take hundres of photos. Tried different batteries, no ...

I purchased this camera just over 1 year ago and am very pleased with it so far. It only has 3.2 megapixels however the camera produces excelent quality images with no wrong colouring and skin tone is also very good. The controls and facilities are slightly limited and so would really only be classed as a point and shoot camera and an excelent buy for beginners. Problems: So far no problems however when I recently went on holiday, a very small amount of fine dust became trapped in the optical ...

Total Crap! I have nothing good to say about it, so move on down to the 'problem' section... Problems: Where to begin?? What didn' t go wrong with this camera?? From day 1, it has given me nothing but grief. I believe I must have gotten a dud...cuz there is no way, a camera would be this crappy!! I missed SO many photo ops because it would only allow me to take 3 pictures at most... It's been in for repairs 2 times...for what?? I don't even know! And the saddest thing is, the company I ...

I tried a few different cameras before I picked this one up. It felt intuitive, not unlike a pair of well-used jeans. I thuroughly enjoy the size and layout of the unit. I know that it is a limited camera, though I think Olympus did some very good work here. I really like how this camera responds to all sorts of lighting; it shoots well indoors and outdoors, low light and no light. I found it easy to favorably manipulate the white balance, and other features were standard. I wasn't pleased ...

Purchased this camera 8 months ago and everything was going along fine. Good photos especially using SHQ. Problems: I was looking forward to using this camera on a trip to the Southwest this Sept., however, all of a sudden the camera just died....not a battery problem either. It just stopped communicating with my PC and then went completely dead. The camera has now gone in for repair and I am going to have to go back to my 35mm film camera for my trip. Very disappointed!!

I have purchased this camera to replace my Fuji Finepix-3800. I needed a smaller size camera I could put in my pocket when traveling. I still miss my 3800. Why?! because nothing will ever replace a large lens. The 560 takes cool shots with little or no efforts but limited when comes to professional photography. Plus it has a 5-mm lens. It's a good all around family camera for aver day use. Including indoor shots. Creates awesome outdoor pictures and it looks sexy! :) Uses AA size batteries ...

"Shades of Tsunami" Was Shot By This Magnificent Camera. Please Visit fist and then read the review : http://www.animorphix.com/tsunami This camera is pretty good. I should say it's better than the SONY p72 which I've used before. Most of the users used to compare these two. Therefore I left a comment on it. Truly spoken I'm a professional user and I prefer SLR cameras. I just got this as a gift and I started using it. Optically it's very strong. Good Lenses. Good Zoom. Good Picture. On the ...
