1.0 out of 5 stars VERY Disappointed in my first Camera from Olympus, July 7, 2013
This review is from: Olympus Stylus SZ-15 Digital Camera with 24x Optical Zoom and 3-Inch LCD (Black) (Old Model) (Electronics)
Olympus has had a good reputation in the camera world...or so I thought. My wife bought this camera for me for my birthday, and it is a HUGE disappointment. As another reviewer mentioned, this camera feels like it would break at any moment...light weight plastic construction. When you move the camera in your hand, you can feel something inside the camera move. No joke! Maybe it's the battery? Don't know. But you can sure feel the movement inside whenever you move the camera. The zoom, while 24x is very nice, zooming in is a problem. When zooming on my model, the zoom continues to zoom, even when I've removed the finger from the zoom button! This is true only when zooming in; not zooming out. The result, I have to rezoom back out to get my photo. Very time consuming in the world of taking photos! Also, when zooming past 24x, this camera does not focus...it's very odd. Doesn't even attempt to focus. Not clear what's happening here. I took about 35 photos with the camera, but they are all oversaturated. They were taken out of doors. My cheaper $120 point-n-shoot took truer photos! A freelance graphic designer who occasionally takes photos, I can't use this camera at all. It would make me look cheap, stupid, unprofessional. I really can't express well my disappointment with this camera. Don't buy it. That's it. Just don't buy it.
