The VG-180 lets you produce high-resolution stills and movies thanks to its 16MP sensor. Plus, its 5x Wide Optical zoom lens gets you right up close to people and scenes so you capture all the detail that makes an image really come to life. If you're feeling creative, you can play around with your pictures by applying special effects like Pop Art or Reflection with one of nine Magic Filters.

It constantly will not focus properly, it will turn off for no reason (after charging all night), the lens will jam and stay extended in zoom position. This was purchased from Amazon and honestly, it has been so malfunctional since day 1 that it was probably used and returned to them prior to them sending it to me as a "new" item.
Sometimes the screen just goes black and stays that way, again, for no reason. Recently, the screen has gone completely blank and will not show the photo at all. Normally when this happens it eventually comes back but this time nothing came back.
This is a horrible camera and it has been a nightmare since we first got it.
I have sent it back to be repaired under warranty; we'll see if Olympus backs their stuff.
I have owned a number of digital cameras since they first developed the technology, and this is by far the WORST ever. Prior to this one we had a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX9, which I used to complain about... it was a DREAM compared to this cheap quality thing. Wish I had the Sony instead of this piece of junk. The Sony lasted from Oct 2011 to May 2015. This Olympus was junk the day it arrived, and in less than a year it is already being sent for warranty repair. The Sony never needed a repair.
+++ PROS +++
1) LOW COST
You will NOT find another digital camera that is even halfway decent for $50.
2) SIMPLE CONTROLS
The camera seems to cater to people who want minimal controls. Instead of having tons of different "modes" the camera reminds me more of a "point-and-shoot" from back in the day.
3) EASY TO LEARN
Due to the lack of options available, this camera is very easy to learn quickly.
4) DECENT RESOLUTION
For the money, the camera takes very good shots at a higher resolution than older models you can obtain for the same price. The auto-balancing works well and white balance/exposure are set for you.
--- CONS ---
1) LACKS ADVANCED FUNCTIONALITY
If you're looking for a camera with different shooting modes (sports, night time, etc), this camera is not for you. It has very few options, and even fewer buttons. Think of it as a "no frills" quick point-and-shoot camera.
2) SMALL BATTERY
The battery is quite small, and using the mechanical zoom often will drain it somewhat quickly.
3) BATTERY MUST BE CHARGED INTERNALLY
My biggest complaint was that the battery needed to be charged inside the camera as opposed to more expensive models that come with a separate charger. I'm afraid that using the USB port so much (for power and exporting photos) will eventually cause it to break over time.
Overall, this camera is so low in cost that you could purchase multiple quantities and have them around for moments when you need them (accidents, UFO sightings, bigfoot, etc). If you're looking for a simple digital camera, or would like to get one for your kid with minimal investment, Look no further.
