Olympus C-720 UZ review

Very excited when I received the camera as a gift 1 1/2 years ago. Liked it
and made good use of it. Focusing tedious at times and hard to get "action
shots". Otherwise, very pleased.

Sadly....the camera just up and stopped working. Froze up and nothing
would get it going. Emailed Olympus who promptly replied they were sorry to
hear about the problem...but if I sent $150.00 they would fix it. Seems like
they've had the complaint before.

Don't quite see the value in spending 30% of the purchase price to fix an
inherent problem less than two years after the purchase. So....it I could rate
"value for the money" below 1.0...below zero really...I would.

I will replace the camera...but not with another Olympus.



See above. Obviously poor quality control.
