Easily The Worst Compact I've Used

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 would do, including the shutter, in any situation and shoot accordingly. I'm so happy I lost this camera and someone else is miserable with it because it was terrible.

Problems:

The camera itself. It was horrid.
