Customer Reviews

It takes beautiful pictures and the quality is great.
mmoreno
I mainly use it for point and shoot pics, which this camera is overkill for, but it takes those so great.
John Nickias Jr.
Sometimes it takes multiple refocus attempts and/or multiple shots to get a clear picture.

I should say right from the outset, the most important factor in buying a digital camera for me is the camera's zoom capability. Several years ago, I began my digital camera collection with a cheap Samsung (S630), followed the year after with the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ-8 (432mm zoom) and the next year with the FZ-18 (504mm).
It seems each year, camera companies try to outdo one another with the biggest zoom for the buck. Several weeks ago, I bought this camera with a mind-numbing 840mm zoom. Don't be surprised if the 1000 mm zoom comes out next year. Surprisingly, for a camera with this kind of capability, it is light as a feather and differtentiates itself from the other ultrazooms out there by eliminating the Electronic View Finder completely in favor of a 3" screen monitor (I suspect this omission may cost them sales). The instruction manual can be downloaded from the Olympus web site. The camera's software can be downloaded by connecting the camera to your computer (make sure your memory card has been removed to download software)
What also differentiates it from the others out there is that you can edit the still pictures you have taken using the special effects function from reducing red eye, shadow adjustment, adding/reducting color saturation, and cropping. Some of these functions were available in my Samsung S630, but in none of the more expensive Lumix models. With most digitals, if you want to edit your pictures, you would have to download them to your computer and use the camera's editing software or Photoshop.
By using Panorama function you can take up to 3 shots manually or automatically and the camera's computer "stitches" them together into one panoramic wide angle shot. quite a technological achievement.

There are so many models out there and this camera is really a good fit for those who want to just take good looking photos and videos without having to go to school to learn how to operate this camera. Once you get past the prelimanary stages of locating all of the buttons and what they do it is pretty easy to perform the functions and it will do just about anything you want it to. It's versatility is what sells this camera as it doubles as a camera and video so you aren't lugging around equipment when you go out on your vacations or just to the park. The 30x zoom makes life so easy when you are on trips and can't get close to the subject matter. We take a lot of cruises so when you are on the balcony and want to take a picture of something that is far away...no problem at all. The Panarama setting is so easy to operate that it adds another dimension to taking pictures in exotic locations. The digital age makes it so easy to take and discard photos that you like and don't like and you end up with the 'perfect picture' that you wanted. 14 megapixels will ensure you never have to worry about quality of reproducing photos and since we don't reproduce any photo over an 8x10 we know it will come out perfect.

A 4 gb chip is more than you need and gives you enough room for photos and videos. Anything more than this chip is overkill and who wants to store that many photos on a chip without D/L to a storage area?

The only drawback I see on this camera is the setup where you really need to read the instructions so that you don't end up erasing the memory of the camera instructions before you insert the chip. Our camera did not come with the instruction booklet so I had to go to the website to D/L it and then go step by step from the instructions to set it up.

Verified Purchase
This is one nice looking camera with the best quality build I think I have EVER seen in a camera, really, it screams quality at you and if you plan to use this solely for photography and NOT for video, then I give it 5 stars.
The quality of the photos to my (amateur) eyes are very good even in relatively low light, the zoom is excellent (for photography) and the proprietary battery seems to last for ever. Actually, I have been using it right out of the box without ever charging and it is still going strong!
The setting are easy to access, and a breeze to adjust or just leave it in I/auto as I did for great results.

The Bad

I am quite disappointed with the video capabilities (or LACK of them!) with no optical zoom available for HD video recording unless you switch off the sound! Birthday parties and sports events will never be the same without sound and it beats me why Olympus would come out with such a stunning camera and leave out such an important feature!
I also tried shooting video in VGA mode but still no optical zoom. The camera does allow you to use the digital zoom but it turns decent quality video into a horrible blur! (I could have lived with the digital zoom for my purposes if it had worked better)
Also worth a mention is the auto focus on video recording which is very slow, too slow for me.

The Pro's
Really excellent quality build, this camera will last for years!!! (if you don't end up returning it)
Excellent 30x optical zoom capability
Great looking design, compact and light
Long battery life, I still have not charge the battery yet and have taken 100 photos and 20 minutes of video.
