Pros:-lightweight
-8.0 megapixels
-large LCD screen
-looks nice
-good battery life

Cons:-could be better in low light
-without flash the images are not very sharp

The Bottom Line: I would recommend this camera to someone who wants something lightweight, affordable, and easy to use.


I have owned this camera for about 2 years now and have been generally very pleased with it. Sure, some aspects of it could be better, but it is a good deal for the price. The body design is sleek and attractive in design. I own a black one which adds to the sleekness of the body as it is already. It is very compact and thin, easily fitting into your purse or pocket. People may not think of an Olympus as their first choice for a good quality digital camera, but this has met the standards of a canon point and shoot that I also own, if not gone beyond those standards. It is a very lightweight camera and I enjoy the large LCD screen. The 5x optical zoom is very effecient and allows you to take decent pictures. It is especially useful at zoos and concerts. It's pictures in lowlight aren't very good, but if you take pictures during daylight with the flash on it takes very nice images. I enjoy the macro and super macro settings on this camera, and it focuses very well in those settings for a point and shoot camera.  It has many different scene selection modes that are useful, including one for fireworks, and an automatic smile shot setting. It even has an expression edit selection which can be beneficial as well as entertaining. Overall, I have enjoyed this camera very much. I would recommend this camera for those looking for something easy to use with good image quality for a point and shoot.
