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

I love this camera! It works great, and takes very good quality pics! You do have to be careful how close you are to your human subjects, you can see every pore!

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

Super Deal

 

New Eggs fast shipping is again top of the mark. Highly recommended!!! Can't beat such a small price for a small and powerful camera.

HD Video, 5X Optical Zoom, fits in the palm of your hand, 14MP for only $99.00. I've owned an Olympus 35mm SLR camera since 1972 and it has never failed me. I can tell by the quality of this small digital camera that they haven't stopped on quailty...

None, except that the package deal with the charger and hook up cables would have been even nicer if Olympus would have included a small camera carrying case with it

Good camera for the price.

 

I have four Olympus cameras. I can't understand why each one came with different software. This last one comes with software I found to be confusing and more complicated than it needs to be. I can't use older software and this does not please me at...

Fantastic Little Camera for the Price

 

Great for field work. Takes a little time to get used to the smaller buttons compared to a 35mm camera.

Well Worth It

 

Olympus has always been my favorite brand of camera. This one is no exception. Light weight easy to use menu options. This camera can take still frames or video. Compact design, perfect for trips, or carry in your purse.

I have a SLR but am looking for a pocket camera to carry all the time. This camera is small, solid, feels good in the hand, with easily accessed features. Pics in all modes are great. I loved it UNTIL I shot video and couldn't use optical zoom. Found...
