I got this camera as a gift for Christmas. It is wonderful. I am especially enjoying the auto feature which captures the cats and dogs' faces. We have two cats and they are always entertaining us and we've gotten some great shots of them.

I looked for nearly six months to find a camera that I could take on vacation, that would fit in my pocket and that had a zoom that would replace my old film camera, in other words had a long zoom. This camera has it. It does not have a view finder, but that is a sacrifice I can live without. I am pleased to have all the options, such as your magic settings, though you could eliminate the whole bunch and I would never miss them. The panorama feature is wonderful, though I seldom use it. I have had problems downloading pictures and found the battery ridiculously short term. I have had problems with focusing action pictures. I talked to your customer service and found them very accommodating. I believe they will be able to solve my remaining problems. If not, I will be adding to this list. It is the right size, the right zoom and feels great in my hand. So far, that is wonderful.

Great, versatile camera that fits in your pocket. My job requires me to be outdoors a lot, and this camera allows me to take great photos of wildlife, scenery, etc w/o having to handle large, clunky gear. Love the many settings and options.

I had wanted a newer longer zoom camera and decided to try the Olympus SZ-30MR due to its variety of features and because of good reviews by other users. I haven't been disappointed. I've now take over 500 pictures and a few HD movies. I mostly use the P mode with -0.7 exposure (to get deeper color) and "sunny" white balance (also to get deeper color). Also use "spot" focus but leave everything else at the default settings. This produces pictures equal to or better than any of my previous cameras. I really like the light weight, the easy controls, the smooth and fast zoom, and the long battery life (248 pictures and several HD movies totaling over 4 minutes on a single charge. Having no GPS probably helps.) Overall, I highly recommend this camera for amateur photographers. Professionals may also like it as an easy to use second camera.

Great upgrade from my Olympus Styles 1020 that I loved. I have not had the camera long enough to experiment with all the functions. I do have a major complaint, the camera come with a new software Olympus Viewer2, the camera shoots movies in MP4 format but the software can not play the movie it takes you to Yahoo Music Box??? why?? I then have to convert the MP4 to AVI which the software likes. What am I doing wrong??? or how do I correct this software glitch problem??

I have had my new camera for a few weeks and so far, so good. Took a beautiful pic of my little dog & posted to facebook. Great response.
I ordered the manual from Olympus & had it in my hand in 3 days! Much easier to learn with manual & camera together. Haven't had much time to play with it, but will do soon. Looking forward to taking great pictures on our upcoming vacation!
