It doesn't matter how much I write about this, since it's an old cam anyhow, but it's a signal of why Oly's compact business isn't where they would hope. This cam was expensive. It was bulky. And for all that, it was simply not capable of producing images comparable to cameras for 200 less. First, it was impossible to get a high number of pictures that weren't blurred- in any mode. The shutter was never right in any mode. Then came coloring. It was impossible to predict what the cam ...

I bought this camera because a few months ago, it was one of the only ultra compact cameras with a 5x optical zoom. I also liked the large LCD screen.

I thought using the sport function would help, but it doesn't. It isn't loud, as another user indicated, but it does take a very long time to recycle ...

I discovered very serious problem with this camera: when white balance is set to anything else than auto and camera uses flash for exposure, ist DOES NOT SET WB for the flash! So when you shoot in yellow bulb light and set WB accordingly and camera then uses flash, you end with awfully blue image.

I purchased this camera recently. While doing research for a new camera a set a list of requirements. 1) That it be an Ultra-Compact camera, as I was going to be taking it with me while I was riding my bike. 2) That it provided good image quality. 3) I didn't want to spend alot of money. I was afraid that the camera might be damaged in a crash or some other mishap. 4) Optionally that it have a larger zoom than most Ultra-Compacts. This camera really fits the bill in all regards. I'm quite ...
