All around excellent camera

Love this SZ-16 iHS camera! I have owned several Olympus cameras and have never been disappointed. Best quality and easy to use. This one takes top quality pictures. Would recommend it to anyone novice or professional.

Great Camera

I have owned my camera for less than a month. It is reconditioned and I got it for a great price. I did lots of research and found it to be quite compatible with my needs and BOY was I Right! My first big use was at my nieces college graduation and got GREAT pictures and Great Videos of the ceremony. I am now just looking at all the different settings and trying them out and I am VERY pleased. I am no professional, but I feel like one using this camera.

Best camera I have ever had!

I have needed a new camera for quite some time as the digital I had been using did not take good pictures. (It was another well known brand). My husband bought me this Olympus camera as a gift and OMG! I am in love! I have been taking pictures of everything I can think of, under all kinds of conditions and I have not been disappointed. I have been zooming in on birds and squirrels and the pictures look professional! I am amazed at the focusing ability, the color, the quality of the zoom, not to mention all the wonderful features it has for taking pictures under all kinds of conditions as well as doing panoramic pictures, and you can even set it for dog or cat, and as you sweep the room, it will automatically take a picture of which you have chosen. Every time I pick it up and check out all the features, I learn something new. The on-line manual is great, but just playing with it will teach you a lot. I have had good cameras in the past (have been taking pictures for 50 years), but never have I had such a great one!

right now we're not friends

Was away for a week, and took loads of pictures. Focus was sharp, range was good. did well in sun light, overcast skies and indoors. The camera is very light, so the sharp focus is impressive. Shutter speed on auto is very good; caught action with no blur.

But:, I dropped it. from my hand, maybe four feet.
And all the pictures disappeared.
don't know how this could happen
but it did.

(Dropped another camera when I fell, backpacking, really dropped it, as in it slammed against rocks very hard. The camera was a mess, but the pictures were still there.,,)

The tripod is kind of iffy

And there are no additional lens available for this model.
My fault for not doing better research.

Outstanding camera

I would give this camera ten stars. I am a novice photographer who wanted to "Upgrade" and after much research decided on the SZ16. The photos taken are sharp, the colors perfect. My amateur pictures look like they were taken by a pro. I purchased the bound manual to carry with me for reference. It is 100% helpful. This afternoon I'm going to try out the video. I cannot recommend this camera high enough. It is outstanding. In addition I had some questions so I called Olympus for some help. Your customer service is top drawer. The gentleman I spoke to was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and able to answer my questions in a way that I could fully understand. I greatly appreciated that. For anyone reading this review I have one suggestion....buy this camera. you won't be disappointed.

Great carry all the time camera

I purchased a refurbished model, love it. It's fast and takes great photos. Small enough for jacket pocket but yet good size for actual handling. Plan to carry it all the time.

Great Camera

I have had the camera for over a month and have taken quite a few pictures. I took it on a cruise our cruise and found it very easy to use. I used auto mode for most picture and also used sunset, landscape and hand-held starlight scenes mode for specialty shots. I have an Olympus Stylus 7010 which I have used for the past 4 years This camera gives me more options for my photos and better zoom and stabilization for distant photos. I am very happy with this camera.

Ravi

perfect for my needs, except

I have owned this little gem for three days and have been trying out the different modes. For a point and shoot, the zoom is incredible and flash is good. Having owned one little Canon point and shoot for the past 8 years, this camera is perfect for my needs. The only caveat is not including a travel charger. Being accustomed to an external charger, I see the benefit. I will however, purchase one as I think they are indispensable. Price point (with two price match reductions) is ridiculous for what you get. Good job Olympus.

Great Camera

This is my second point and shoot Olympus camera. Love the zoom features. Gives me great pictures. Not a big deal but it would be nice if it came with a independent battery charger. Have downloaded the software and used it a little and like it. When time comes and I am looking for another camera I will be looking at Olympus first.

Great Little Point & Shoot

I am overall very happy with my purchase. My strongest buying point was the smart panorama and the zoom. My only disappointment is there isn't an actual (paper) manual to help navigate all the different settings for the camera.
