I bought this to relpace an older, 6 mp camera, and it is great. picture clarity is awesome, battery life seems to be very good, and it is EASY to use. The camera has more optical zoom than I have ever seen on a camera its size, and a great macro setting. I can get clear and defined product images very up close an personal. I can also get great pictures of my kids, and it is so easy that i can pass the camera off and anyone can click and shoot a great picture.

The camera also has HD video recording, and it is great. I have been needing to make some videos for my small business, and this will work nicely. It will also be great to catch family events on, including when my children meet their new sibling within the next few days.

the only thing I would make special note of is that the camera does not have as many manual settings as I am used to. no manual focus, in particulr. but, since it does so good a job of the auto focus, I haven not found that to be an issue.

overall, I highly reccomend this camera to anyone looking for a new personal or easy to use small business camera.

This is my 6th Olympus camera (4th digital one), so I am quite an Olympus fan. I bought the Stylus 7040 for its compact size, wide angle, and HD video capability. The Stylus 7040 is by far less intuitive than all previous digital cameras I'e owned(FE-280, Camedia C-60, and D-490). I've used it at 4 parties, 1 vacation and 2 business trips in the past 2 months, and I am still struggling with learning the settings. Worst is I am highly disappointed with the poor battery life, even in power save mode - which then becomes a nuisance because it is so slow to come back on. I even turned it down to 8M and 5M size. On average, I get 20-30 shots per battery charge! Maybe I should consult a dealer to see if this is normal or the camera is defective. It takes decent pictures, and wide angle is good for group pictures.

I still can't believe what a great little camera this is, which I purchased for under $100 through Amazon! You just can't go wrong! So easy to use; crisp photos, macro is great! So many people have commented on the quality of photos I have taken. I just slip it into my pocket and go! I'm not too crazy about the ib software..some of the print was impossible to read (looks like chicken-scratch to me); and, there were a few other glitches. But, my computer isn't the latest and greatest. I contacted Olympus re: the software and the technician with whom I spoke was very responsive, informed, patient, efficient. Great service. For now, I've opted to use an earlier version of the software. But, you know: every time I look at this little camera, I smile! That's your answer...

This is a really nice camera and it does all that the description claims. You do need to charge the battery when you first get it and that was the hardest part for me...I'm impatient and I wanted to try it out! :- Once the battery was charged, though, the camera works really well and all the menus are easy to understand. I love the photos I've taken. The videos are very crisp and clear indoors or out. There are many settings to choose from and I just recently tried out the panorama option...it's fun! Overall, I'd heartily recommend this camera to anyone who wants one easy to use but with a lot of options. The quality of the photos is remarkable and the HD videos are also great. I am totally enjoying mine!

We bought this camera to replace my wife's older Olympus camera that stopped working after a hard drop (understandable). After playing around with this camera for a little while, I began to understand and like the multiple features. There are more features available than most folks will use but they aren't in the way of casual use of the camera, meaning, you can do some pretty neat things if you take the time to learn about the features but it works like a simple point and click camera otherwise.
With the default settings (simply turning the camera on), it works well with one issue. It takes the camera 2-3 seconds to focus which makes it difficult to take spontaneous photos and causes posed subjects to become impatient while waiting for the photographer to snap the picture. This is somewhat alleviated by pressing the shutter button partially (which activates the auto-focus feature) but this isn't as easy as you might expect. I've attempted to explain/demonstrate/teach three users but they were unable to grasp the concept. So, this may be an issue for others.
Finally, the main reason I'm taking the time to write this review is the fragility of this camera. As stated above, our old camera stopped working after dropping it. In that case, it was understandable as the camera dropped ~5 feet and landed on a hard floor. However, the new camera was bumped by my dog's tail from a height of 2 feet or less and fell off the coffee table onto the rug below. The camera appeared fine at first glance and it wasn't until last week that we noticed that the display screen had a spider-web crack which caused half of it to become non-viewable. We attempted to use the camera anyway (Christmas was here) but it eventually spread through the rest of the screen.
