Olympus C-5500 Sport Zoom review
Nice feature set for a compact camera. It is lightweight, has a fast startup time, and great time lapse feature. The 5x zoom is really great when you can't get close enough to the subject.
Battery life is appalling. It needs really fresh NiMh to run at all. Mine has a current leak that runs the stored batteries dry in about 15 days of non use.
Flash is under powered. I have a C-3030z that is much better on both flash power and battery life.
