Great Camera


All I got to say is this is a great camera. Takes great pictures and it turns on and off very fast. Had it for over a year now and I love it

UPDATE: From Dudeboy


Me lucks run out!

Took mostly nice pictures for me, while it worked. Stopped working after the 7th month of ownership. I was very careful with it, and only used it on maybe 10 or 12 occasions

It never got any rough handling, so there is no excuse for such early failure. I'm disgusted, and I'll not buy Olympus again

Poor Warranty


Lots of zoom

I first took this on vacation, and halfway through the LCD quit working, although it was not cracked on the exterior. I sent it for repair and Olympus said I had dropped it, although I had not and there was no damage at all to the body

no rebate


I use it as a portable camera, when I can't take my Canon EOS.

For such a cheap device the quality is very good

The major concern is "rebate". I sent all the required documents in July and still no rebate!!! (I have photocopies) ; Night shots are too grainy ; Battery drains quickly (but that`s not too bad) ; Pictures made from short distances get very distorted

It is the best purchase I have bought


Consumer review by:



Easy to use. Very Portable.No SLR super Zoom but what do you expect for under $100.00. Quality pictures. I have owned a Olympus 1010 and a Cannon SX210. I currently own a big bulky heavy Luminix FZ40. I may sell it and just keep my new Olympus7030. If...

Fuzzy pictures if fully zoomed and camera not held dead still.Not a deal breaker get out my mini tripod ; Also a long time from click till picture took. But that is true of most cheap compact and many bigger cameras

Good camera for small price


This is a very good camera for a very small price. Very easy to carry and picture quality is pretty good for a point n shoot

Shooting at night is not as great but if you think about the price it's real good deal
