This is my first digital camera and I just love it. I went on a trip to Mexico and took great pictures. When downloaded on my computer they printed out like postcards. The ease in taking pictures, deleting, etc was so simple. The camera is so small you can fit it in even the small purse (for a woman) or pocket for a man. I highly recommend this camera. I recommend purchasing at least a 64mb memory card so you can take at least 90 pictures in one trip. Problems: The only and this is ...

So far very happy. Worth turning off beep as its anoying. Once you read the instuctions, its easy to use, and very easy to change options. Its also worth setting the camera to keep the stting you set up, rather than re-setting each time you turn it on. Go for the biggest xd card you can buy - its well worth it. Problems: Its a shame it uses the XD card, as I have lots of compact flash cards, so you need to buy lots of new cards. In the UK I seem only to be able to get 128mb which seems to ...

This is a little jewel of a shirt pocket size digicam. Solid constuction, rugged, and weatherproof. Takes great photos and is fast on the draw. Once you slide the cover to the right the camera turns on and the lens extract and your ready to shoot in less then three seconds. The camera is very easy to use and goes with me everywhere. The camera will not take audio, remember it is weatherproof and a mic and speaker would not work for this type of camera. It does not have a low light assist ...

good design, small and compact size, Problems: price are high, the software for the camera isn't good. The software make the picture fuzzy, try different sofware to get better picture quality. Flash are slow sometime.

I have been waiting the last few years for digital cameras to come down in price; come down in size; more mega pixels; ease of use (idiot proof). This is my first digital camera and I am more than satisfied. The menus are easy to use and logical, figured out 99% of functions without the manual :-). PC Software is easy to install and easy to use. Camera to PC tranfer speed is good. A spare battery and more memory is a must. Problems: Camera failed to power up out the box, got a replacement ...

This is my first ever digital camera that I bought, and it is a great one! For first timers, i strongly recommend this camera. It is sleek and easy to carry around. The pictures are very good too (i.e. have warm cosy/soft color to the pics). The panorama function is cool too! Though, the external charging of the battery is a little bothersome. Imagine having to carry the charger everywhere if you're on holiday... Also, flash is very weak, but strong enough to give visibility to pictures. The ...

It may just be me but I'm disappointed with the stylus. Having pre-ordered last month, I started using it as soon as the battery was charged but found that the images were fuzzy and less clear than with my old Olympus D-460 Zoom and 1.3mp. I intend to return and hope for better luck with the new D-560 Zoom due out in April. Problems: Fuzzy pictures, weak flash.

nice looking however looks are not everything Problems: poor picture quality, especially indoor use-poor resolution in macro mode, i have tried every option to try to correct this, the shots are clear but not like the pentax otio 430rs i took back to get this olympus. I am taking this one back as well, i find that i have to take some pictures three times before i find the right setting, the program auto is not doing its job in my opinion. Daytime shots seem to be okay

Hi. Very happy with camera in the daylight and with the light facing everyones face. Have used it around Egpyt and the UK and owned it now for 3 months. Very easy to use. Love the sleekness of it and it fits perfect in the pocket. Battery is amazing. 3 weeks in Egpyt not until the final day did I need to use my spare battery. Problems: Night Photos - blurry as usual. Who knows who has steady enough hands to take a photo using the night vision mode. Peoples faces- if light is behind them. ...

PROS * compact size * excellent build * weather proof * great image quality * ease of use * good package overall for beginner digital camera CONS * movie no sound * sliding door needs a bit of force to open & close * made in china Problems: I think I must be 1 in a 1000 who has a faulty camera in the first 3 hours of use, the whole camera just went dead (no response), luckily I went back to the store and swapped with another new one.. no problem so far :) , this little camera is great for ...
