First Time with an Olympus Camera


Feel that after two repairs that they would just replace the camera. It would show an interest to keep their buyers.

Nice camera specs, if it would work

I know this is the VG120, I bought the VG-110, last December, but it is no longer listed. This camera failed after 2 pictures, up and back for repair. Failed again, up and back for repair. Now does not appear to be recharging

OLYMPUS VG-120 Red 14.0 MP 3.0" 230K LCD 5X Optical Zoom Digital Camera


Really awesome monitor. Fantastic image and easy to navigate with the monitor settings. The stand if very stable and I personally like the built-in buttons. I like to know what buttons I am pressing as oppose to those 'touch-sensor' ones

Very Happy with this Camera


Fits my needs perfectly without being complicated. Menu is easy with full explanation of each option right in the camera. Like the CD instructions. print only the page that you need to read over. Takes great pics, especially of my pup who is always...
