Great Camera!!


You can always find AA Batteries. Might be a little more expensive than proprietary in the long run, but for me convenience is worth it. My last camera was an Olympus Camedia C4040. While I was tempted to go with the big names (Nikon/Cannon), the...

For anyone who wants a "point and shoot" but would like the features available with a higher end camera, this is for you. The 13fps captures unbelievably high quality shots. Perfect for action shots of my border collie puppy. The zoom is phenominal and...

I can't think of any. If you want a professional quality digital SLR, this probably isn't for you. But, if you want great shots without carrying around a bag of accessories and learning which lens goes for which shots, you've found your camera.

More than you pay for by far!


It's amazing and is my second Olympus digital camera. My other is water proof, etc. . . and works great! This one is incredible too! I'm not usually particularly fond of one specific brand but I have to admit that I'm beginning to really appreciate...

Zoom is unprecedented for Digital Cameras!

The camera does not appear to be able to record sound during video play WHEN USING OPTICAL ZOOM. But hey, it's a camera anyways, not a camcorder! =)

I have a older Olympus 10X zoom 2pix. camera which takes fantastis pics. and is why I thought this should be GREAT. After 7 years of evolution, it has not improved very much, DISAPPOINTED !

Great zoom range, 26mm wide is great improvement and sharp. All the controls you could possibly want and EZ auto features. 6400 ASA works but with loss of pic quaility, but still got the pic ! For sports shots the 13.5 fps is fantastic.

Auto focus is VERY slow. Write time is evan slower, in single shot mode you miss action shots waiting for the download time. There is not a recomended way to attach a polarizing filter although they do sell an adapter, the tech support people don't...

great camera


I am carrying this one with me for emergency photos as opposed to my SLR with all the extra flash and lens', caps, remote controls, etc. I like its great ranges with the presets for fine macros, portraits and landscapes. I used the batteries up that...

It has a huge optical zoom, takes really great pictures in low light and backlit. I planned to use it as a backup for my professional SLR and was very surprised at it's quaility. I have used digitals cameras since they came out. I am just greatly...

I almost don't have any, the zoom is a little jerky when going in and out and the focusing isn't quit as fast as digital SLR but it is not really that bothersome.

Olympus 20x Zoom


This was an ergonimically well thought out camera. For a heavy P&S its extremely easy and comfortable to hold. Most of the controls, other than the zoom control, are well located and relatively easy to use for more experienced digital photographers....

Great ergonomics

The sensor is extremely slow making for a definite lag between shots and slow time for zooming. Its not really handy having to zoom with a P&S by turning a ring on the lens and with a slow zooming time because of the sensor its hard to get a precise zoom.

Just what I was looking for!!


This camera is sweet! I have been looking and looking for just the right camera for me. I found this one, and after some research, went ahead and tried it out. Oh my! I do love it. So clear and easy to use. I photograph the birds that feed at our...

Non as of yet.
