Olympus Stylus 1010

 

What can I say, this camera is worth every penny I paid. For a walk around pocket camera this ranks very close to the Fuji F-models I own. The 7x zoom is a good lens and the images are not over sharpened and require little to no post processing to...

Blurry Pictures

 

I should not have strayed away from cannon. I have a 4 year old bulky, low mega pixel, AA battery eating camera that could out perform this so called quality camera.
