Bummer Dude!


I bought the T100 with the ib software for my Mom as a Christmas gift this past yr (2010). Mom had me take the software home to my computer to use because it was too difficult for her to use. I can see why!!!!! I have been trying for the past several months and it refuses to work. I have re-loaded, downloaded additional software and NOTHING will transfer pictures. I have even lost a good number of some priceless family photos and videos!

Works, But With Flaws


I'd look for a better camera, but this isn't bad. Got it at Fries for the same price - but that was earlier during October of last year.

Takes good close pictures. Daytime pictures are pretty decent. Working audio with video recording function instead of silence. Small - good for holding in a pocket

Absolutely terrible for nights and/or low-light situations. It's embarrassing on how terrible this function is - NIGHT MODE DOES NOTHING TO FIX IT. Takes the camera forever to process, and by the time it processes, you get nothing but blur. Zoom is...

Look elsewhere inconsistent Pictures


Newegg let me return it, I wont get cheap on a camera again.

Cheap with rechargeable batteries and occasionally takes good pictures

Most pictures look like they were taken from an old phone

Good camera for the money.


Very nice camera, nice quality, quick recovery time even with flash on, good battery. Plenty of features to change the original image like filters and whatnot. very light but does not seem cheap or poorly made

none so far except it seems like the preview screen changes into all brown when focusing on a brown object in the center but takes a normal picture when ya take it so i cant take an egg off it for that

Not bad...


With blurry photos and low DPI, what's said in the description is exactly it: Designed to... master the digital camera's three basic functions - "shooting, viewing and deleting." Good for a start, fun to use, but with low DPI and blurry photos, don't...

It's a decent camera to get started on, as others have said. Overall, what it has is simplicity. Everything is easy to understand, simple to use and quick to get rolling with

If you're looking for something to capture your new background with: this isn't it. When I first opened it up, it felt like a chunk of cheap plastic. It's extremely light and has that little black 5 cent pen feel to it. It's photo quality is...

This is a horrible camera


I bought this camera to replace a 4MP Kodak easy-share I bought my mother 5 years ago. It turns out that the easy-share takes better pictures! I have two other Olympus Cameras, and must say that I am truly sad that Olympus produced a camera of this...

I was able to RMA

Impossible to take a clear picture, as others have said ; DPI is barely over 100 on 12MP/ FINE settings (least compression available) ; small sensor ; poor body construction ; Poor menus, poor controls ; Lag time, slow shutter speed, long exposure time...

Seems very cheap, but works great


Light weight and can go anywhere with you. All the menus were easy to navigate through

The case for the camera seemed like a cheap instamatic camera you can buy over the counter. Not impressed with it

I am still new.

Easy To Use,Nice Body Color,Small \/ Compact

Initial charging slow

Great small camera


Add a 4 gig micro SD card and you never run out of space for either pictures or video. Egg sells a case with a velcro strap so you can carry it on your belt or purse strap. Bought this as a gift (but I use it) and whish I had purchased two. Would...

Amazing picture quality for a camera that fits in a shirt pocket. The movie function produced a video as good as my camcorder even indoors with regular room lighting. I carry it all the time to capture images on the run. Charges from the USB cable...

There is a shutter delay that is anoying if you are trying to capture a event that happens quickly. There is also an occasional blured pix if you don't allow the camera time to focus

Definately worth it.

Very good quality pictures, very affordable, light weight, small, and easy to use

Very low memory, probably need memory card
