It does come with a micro-SD reader.
Small, Internal memory.
The interface is a bit sluggish.
The zoom is a bit slow.
Buttons feel cheap, but I suppose thats because they're waterproof.
Microphone, but NO speaker for in-camera playback.
Screen is mediocre.
Proprietary USB/video-out cord.
Slightly slow recovery between pictures, but manageable.
This camera has the nosiest sensor I've ever used, and that includes bottom of the line Sanyo's. Laughably the camera gives the option of selecting up to 1600 ISO when 100 is barely acceptable for 4x6 prints. Don't expect to get anything larger out of this camera under any circumstances. This brings me to:
This camera lists this as a feature on the box, what it really is doing is boosting the ISO in this mode so that the slow aperture lens has a fast enough shutter speed to eliminate camera shake. Never mind that ANY ISO over 100 produces an unacceptable amount of noise. Kudos to Olympus for giving me the choice of either a blurry picture or a speckled one.
Using a flash is not my preferred method of taking pictures, but this camera has especially poor results. There appears to be no compensation for distance and although there is a pre-flash I do not think the camera does any metering. The result is comparable to my LSI Diana, and that is not a compliment. Portraits are typically overexposed with dark backgrounds, or underexposed with blown out foregrounds.
Slow, slow, slow. SLOW.
Yeah right. I checked with a watch, this camera takes 5 seconds, FIVE, to clear the buffer for the next shot. Then it helpfully displays the poor quality image you just took for an additional 2-3 seconds.
I started to wonder if Olympus was just trolling consumers with this, 640x480 with massive grain.Read more ›
