When I first received the camera I thought it wasn't going to be what I expected, but was I wrong......Takes beautiful pictures, sunsets,
close-up's, nature, insects and the zoom is powerful, all of the functions are at hand and simple to change, the digital zoom is great, pictures in dark or light no problem, she can handle them, and on top of all this is a beautiful looking camera, you can't go wrong. try it and you will be amazed.

Let me tell you how great this SZ-30MR is.When I first received this SZ-30MR I was kind of hesitant, it look like it was a flimsy camera, but boy was I wrong...This camera is light in weight (I own a NikonD5000)
in comparison, the pictures are great, the functions are at your finger tips and are simple, the HD1080 movies are awesome, the zoom and macro lens is great, the flash never comes up unless you want it to, this is how great the auto functional part of speed and ISO combination works. You can use it in manual mode and it works great, I have the camera in silver and it looks elegant. I bought it because I need a smaller camera than my Nikon, but short of a few functions it performs as good as the Nikon, I'm considering selling my Nikon and buying an interchangeable lens Olympus brand. All that been said, if you are considering buying this camera, don't hesitate you will not be disappointed. Thank you Olympus for a great product.

I was aprehensive when coming to first use this camera, but everything is made easy for you . It takes great pictures ,easy to handle, sturdy, well made and not too large.
Minus side you certainly need a tripod for long zoom pictures and it is also best to forget auto for these and work the camera to get best results, some of the magic features I find a waste of time, but overall the camera has exceeded my expectations, excellent.

I like the picture quality most times. Although some of my pics have not been very sharp, so I am still trying to figure this out. I do like the Magic options, although the drawing option did not turn out as well as I had hoped. I guess I need a bit more time trying the camera out. Most disappointing feature was there is no setting on the camera to take black & white or sepia photos, which most cameras offer this as a standard now. If there is a setting and I am just missing it, please tell me where to find it.

Its fast to turn on and the zoom is awesome. I love the fact that I can shoot video and take pictures at the same time.

The camera is good quality. I have not had a chance to take much test photos with iut as yet. But I explore some of its feature and it is awsome. I will love to email you a photo once I take some nice ones.

As a advanced amateur photographer I can honestly say this camera is one of the high end point and shoot cameras on the market today.

This is about my 15th Olympus camera. I must say one of my favorites!
The zoom is terrific and yet the camera is small enough to fit in my purse.
So far I have found it takes great people shot and landscaspes.
We are getting ready to go on a trip and I know I will use this camera more than my Pen or E Volt because it is so compact yet has the 24 X Zoom.
