This was my first step into Digital Photography and I was worried that going with a 3.2MP camera that had a all weather body would lower the quality of the camera becuase they would spent more money on the body. I was way off. This is probably the nicest camera I have ever owned. I use it all the time rain, snow, shine you name it. I love the features on it has all the normal ones you would see along with movie mode and panarama. Compression rate on the pictures is great and even the smaller ...

I bought this camera, my first digital, three weeks ago for a trip to Vancouver Island. I went to the camera store thinking I'd buy the Canon A75. The salesman showed me this one and I decided to get it because of the all-weather metal body, the lithium-ion battery, and the ease of use. I also bought the 256MB xD card. I did not read the manual. I simply started taking photos, and ended up taking about 250 on the 10 day trip (there was a lot to see). I was pleased by the image quality, the ...

I received the camera for christmas 2003 and have taken about 200+ pictures. Indoors, outdoors, day, night, and macro. By New Year's day I had mastered all of the controls and creative options. The camera is solid and weatherproof. It takes excellent pictures for this type of camera. Remember this camera is a point-and-shoot with some creative control options. It is not like an SLR that allows you complete control over shutter and aperature. I love the rechargeable lithium battery ...

I bought this camera when it was very new on the market and despite the high price (around £340 in the UK) it was clearly one of the best around. A comparison with the then new Fuji 410 (even set to its interpolation max of 6MP) when printed showed it to be superior. Now you can get one for £250 sterling the 300 is a superb point and shoot camera. The rugged, weather proof case makes it ideal for the active amatuer photographer. It is light and fits into a poket or small bag very easily. ...

This is my first digital camera and I have used it extensively since April with considerable success. My pictures have turned out very well with little practice. The point and shoot features of this camaera are a real dream to use and provide a lot of creativity. I really enjoy using the spot metering which is available. The panorama feature has proven very well. Software with the camera is very easy to use and provides beautiful results. Problems: After 5 months of use the camera ...

Got my wife this for point & shoot to carry in her purse. She loves it for ease of use and very compact and can keep it in her purse. I use a higher end camera and find the auto-focus on the Stylus 300 poor even in the day and especially at night, the flash very insufficient at night (only OK as fill in flash in the day), the camera could be quicker on start up and in between picture times. I bought my wife a Canon G3 and she never used it because it was too complicated and big for her. My ...

This is my first digital camera. I like its compact size, quality of construction and image quality. However, after only 3 weeks of use, the camera is now "dead in the water" - it won't turn on. I now have it packed up and ready to send to Olympus for repair. Problems: Has anyone else had the problem wherein when you slide the lens cover open, the camera will not turn on? The green and yellow lights beside the viewfinder blink, but nothing else happens. I tried various reset procedures, ...
