This is the oh-darn it's raining camera. It is weatherproof, a key feature some other makes don't provide. Like most weatherproof cameras, no viewfinder other than the LCD. Also it is not image stabilized. It does allow pictures to be taken in conditions where one would never put the expensive, weather-vulnerable equipment outside. Problems: Auto ISO is very strange. Close-up of cat using flash, ISO chosen was 400. Twilight shot of mall parking lot, ISO chosen was 64 (!). On the LCD the image ...

Nice camera in many ways, esp the weatherproofing and construction. Easy to set up and use though menu system took a little getting used to, results pleasing for beginner. Problems: Big problem with image quality. If camera used in basic program mode you can set resolution up to full 6mP. However if you use the Scenes mode the available light programs reduce the resolution to 1mP as well as increase sensitivity. I can't see wy anyone would use a 6mP camera to store 400kB files with no way of ...

Camera sucked and returned to the store. I was extremely dissapointed that Olympus actually put this camera in to the market. Focusing was a pain, and it rarely ever produced a sharp picture. Whit balance was horrible and the colors looked washed out. I would have expected these results from a $30 key chain camera, not one that cost $300. This was my fouth Olympus camera to own and it really put a bad taste in my mouth. I am still a loyal Oly customer but I warn you to stay away from this ...

Easy to use, good menus, quite well made, fashionable. Problems: Picture quality, especially in low light, is not very good. Detail is poor, especially in trees. I expected much more from a 6 megapixel camera, but it is worse than my old (Canon) A20 (2 mp)

I have used DC for over 5 years and have never seen such a poor quality (photos) camera. I obtained from a credit card promotion and is my first Olympus DC camera. I have a 2.0M Ricoh, a 4.0M Kodak 4900 and a 4.0M Sanyo C4. All of them produce better quality pictures than u6. I tried different white balancing setting on the same picture, but the colour were still distorted. I took it back to the Olympus service centre in HK and stated my complained after one week I owned the camera. However, ...
