Great little camera,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Olympus VR-370 16MP Digital Camera with 3-Inch LCD (Black) (Old Model) (Electronics)
I was looking for a camera I could use for birthdays and kids programs and things like that since a cell phone camera is convenient but not always the best quality. After looking at many compact cameras I decided on this one because it had all of the features I wanted and was at a very reasonable price point.
This camera has all of the features you would expect including lots of different automatic pre-defined settings and a ton of manual settings you can configure. It takes great pictures and is exactly what I was looking for.
The reason I am only giving it 4 stars is that it does have a fairly slow shutter response time for the first picture it takes and if you are tying to capture a fast moving subject like a baby that is constantly on the move then you may miss shots that other cameras with faster response times would catch. Once it is focused on a subject and you have taken one shot there is a shorter delay and it becomes less of an issue on second or third shots of the same subject. This initial delay is only a minimal issue for me but for some may be a deal breaker.
The bottom line is this is a great camera with awesome features and the only drawback I have found so far is the slow initial shot shutter response.
