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.

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.

great compact camera

I have owned SLRs and other digital cameras. Right out of the box this camera fits easily and comfortably in your hand, nice grip feature and ergonomic design. Solid feel even though it is lightweight. Easy to set up and charge, though I recommend also buying a charger that lets you charge a second, backup battery outside the camera (this charger charges in the camera). This is esp important if you plan to take it traveling.

The online manual is very helpful and the camera seems very intuitive in explaining the settings, esp. since I had previous digital cameras. I have been taking practice shots using the different settings to get a feel for what I like best, as I said the settings provide good explanations right on the camera screen.

I have not yet had a chance to use the software to download and edit pictures.

I spent months researching this camera and think I made a great choice. I plan to use it for travel and family events.

Great point-n-shoot camera

I needed to replace a 6 yr. old Canon and did a lot of research before picking this one. It kept coming out on top for the features I need. Now that I have the camera and have gone through the manual, I believe it to be the smart move.
The only thing I do not like is having to charge the camera battery in the camera via USB or AC adapter. The cover for both the USB and Video out connections is difficult to open and, IMHO, seems cheap compared to the rest of the camera. I need to be able to charge a back-up battery while I am shooting.
Because of this need and given that we travel a lot by car, I purchased an extra battery and a 'stand alone' charger with 'car adapter'.
Not really a big deal, I have done the same for my other cameras as well. Seems like there is always a camera battery or cell phone being charged while we drive.

A Great Camera with Many Fantastic Features

The SZ-16 iHS is a great photographic equipment companion for my E-620! I really enjoy the SZ-16's very long zoom, image quality, processor, and 4 image aspect choices (just like the E-620).

I just received the camera two days ago, so I am just now trying out all of the SZ-16's fantastic features. I will update my review at a later date after using the camera more.

If anyone has noise issues with any digital camera, I strongly suggest Noise Ninja or Photo Ninja software by PictureCode LLC. I have very successfully used Noise Ninja for quite some time now with my Stylus 9000 (which the SZ-16 iHS is now replacing).

AWESOME ZOOM

love this camera. the zoom is amazing and the special features are fun. i have been having a blast with this camera and can't wait to try it out at a concert. the pictures come out sharp and it's very easy to operate. and the price can't be beat!! :)

joyce

love this little camera

I have an E620 and really like it, but I wanted something smaller for times when I don't want to haul the big one. I was attracted to this because I liked the zoom and the 16 megapixels. I've only had about a week and am still getting acquainted but so far I really like it. One thing I like that I didn't pay much attention to is the movie feature. I've never really cared for those video clips, but this is different and I am finding I like having it. It is different than the 2 minute clips you used to have. You can go forever on this is you want. The zoom is really good and the pics are coming out sharp, it is easy to use, lots of features. I would recommend this is anyone.
One suggestion I have for Olympus is to include the instruction manual. It is nice having a CD and I have printed it, but the size of your manual is more conducive to throwing it in the bag or purse. This of course prints on 8 1/2 x 11 and yes I can cut but what a pain. I know I can buy it from you for $10 but it is the principle of the thing. Include the manual!!
