I was a little skeptical to purchase this camera because it was so cheap and that saying you get what you pay for kept coming to mind but I decided to go for it and Im glad I did. It was an excellent bargain for the price and the pictures are very nice. I took it to Maui with us and it fell down a few big rocks and still worked. Im very impressed
Great camera easy to use small. Impress with camera, battery, sim card, and case. A lot for the money. I took it over to my local camera shop and they also stated good camera for the price. I'm not a camera person but will be great for trips and outings with family and friends.
A perfect camera for quick needs. I use a tri pod for this camera because I am photographing vegetables in the field. It has been perfect for my business and downloading the pictures is so easy, I would recommend this camera to anyone who wants easy.
Ordered this for my God-daughter - who is an extremely mature five year old that loves taking pictures. She was capturing some great shots with our cell phones and even did a pretty good job when she used my D-SLR, (under strict supervision of course.) This was a BDay/Christmas combo gift and she has had hours of fun with the camera! It's a small point and shoot - perfect for her small hands, and she picked up the controls quickly. The images we have printed have been of good quality, and have made wonderful additions to her photo album. She loved the mini-tripod - it gives her the opportunity to be in the pictures that she takes. The camera itself is lightweight, and my only complaint is that it doesn't have a viewfinder - just an LCD screen. It works great for her since it works like a camera on a cell phone, but it would drive me batty. I did put a screen protector on the screen – but I used an extra Zagg screen protector that I had. I also ended up getting a larger SD card – because 2 GB isn’t much. The kit that came with my purchase didn’t have the memory card wallet, or the cleaning kit – but that wasn’t a big deal, and they may have changed the kit since December 2014 when I placed my order. Besides, since I’m an avid hobbyist photographer, I already had extra supplies anyway. The camera case that came with the camera was also different from what is pictured now. I did get the extra warranty – just in case, since little hands can drop things, but she has been super careful. All in all, I think this is a great starter camera for a budding shutter bug. We have enjoyed going out on photo adventures together and she is learning the art of photography at the same time. It’s also perfect for someone who wants a point and shoot camera that is small and easy to use. I’ve always found Olympus’ to be reliable cameras – I still have my 35 mm that was purchased over 20 years ago – and so far this little camera is proving to be the same.
This was a Christmas gift for my 9 year old granddaughter. She was very careful with the camera and was thrilled to receive. After using it twice, both for a short period of time, it stopped working. I have owned Olympus cameras before and was always pleased with them. I purchased the replacement plan to be on the safe side and am now in the process of trying to get it fixed or replaced.
Compact and very easy to use. My soon to be 8 year old grandson wanted a camera for Christmas. This camera was ready to go and he was taking pictures quickly and some nice shots also. He thought it was his best present of the day! So far, Christmas is a hit! Will get more feedback going forward.
I love this camera. It's small, easy to use, and it takes great pictures. It comes with a tripod which I didn't really think I needed, but when my grandson and his girlfriend were over the other night we used it to take a group picture. What fun!!! It's relatively inexpensive, too. I highly recommend it!
