I am new to digital cameras and found the ease of use and the quality to be above my expectations. I am still learning all the features but I LOVE IT!!

Using my Olympus sp-610uz for the first time I was very amazed with the high quality of both still photos and movie clips. I used my tripod for shooting the movie clips. The sound was very clear and audible. I am very pleased with my purchase of this camera.

Good pictures in strong light.
Sort of easy to use.
Focus and image stability is good.
When the light drops the pictures goe south.
Design issues with the lense cover.

Very easy to use. I was using it within minutes of my purchase. The photos are very clear and easy to transfer to my Mac.

too much glare and reflection on the view screen also would like a printed manual to quickly refer to for help about the camera

I really like my new SP610 camera, had one very similar to it but this is certainly nicer. bigger screen, more selection for vaies types of pictures. I especially like it because you can't take a picture with the lens cap on. It was very easy to learn how to use and the vidio button is in a great spot very easy to use. I shoot alot of sprt events so the stabilization is great!! Thanks for make the SP610 Iove it!!

I am still learning, but the camera takes great pictures and is relatively easy for a beginner.
I can't rate all the features, because I haven't used them all yet.
Soon I will.

High quality build, many options, and usable in virtually any light conditions. This camera will only get you the results that you put into it. If you know what you are doing, results are every bit as good as a DSLR, but if you are too quick to just take a pic, it is as good as a $50 camera. I have used this camera since this past June, and I love it. Videos are nice quality, pictures are crisp and clear, even in dark scenes, given you have a tripod or something steady to set it on. Have to play with the settings and scene modes to get the best results, so be sure to do so before taking any pics, and all will be great. Zoom is the best feature to me as I can be far away and get up close in the action without getting in the way. Many excellent photos and videos later, still finding ways to use this camera more often. Battery life is more than I could imagine with rechargeable batteries, only recharged twice since getting the camera. Overall the best camera at a good price I ever had.

I'm truly happy with this camera because its so easy to operate but i think I should be using rechargeable batteries for this. I used this in my Sacramento Grand HIgh School Reunion and am happy with the results.

I've only owned my camera for a couple of days and I'm having a blast. It took a little while to figure out how to set it up but I am very impressed with all of the differant features.

Stabilization doesn't work as well as I thought it would.

Overall a great camera. HD video is easy to use. Some pictures come out grainy. I enjoy this camera an even bought one for my mother.

Went to London this summer and the pictures I got were amazing! The zoom on this camera is insane - I had a few of my family comment that they'd never guessed we were allowed so close to the Queens house :-) The camera looks bulky but it fit nicely inside my purse. The the best of both - small and durable enough for travel but with all the features of a bigger camera!

I love my new camera.Having lots of fun taking pictures.

The lack of viewfinder makes macro photography virtually impossible (completely impossible in sunlight).
Note: this is true of all Olympus cameras except the full SLR's. Sorry guys, have to go elsewhere

I always thought that only DSLR cameras had great zoom and great macro modes. Well, this camera has made me realize that this could not be farther from the truth. The 22x optical zoom really lets you get in on the action even if you are a considerable distance away, however the pictures can be slightly blurry when you reach the extreme of the optical zoom. The super macro mode works amazingly well. The different scene modes give plenty of options to chose from to optimize picture quality, especially the sports mode. One disappointment is that when using the scene modes, the shutter speed does not appear on the screen, although it appears when using Program Auto mode. The automatic panorama mode does not work well when the area being photographed is very homogenous because the camera has trouble picking out a spot to focus on, and the quality of each picture cannot be set to 14mp. However, setting the camera to manual or PC panoramic mode greatly increases the quality of the panoramic pictures while still making it easy to take stunning panoramics. The hi-speed burst modes are incredible and fun to use. Movie recording has never been easier to toggle on and off.

I have been waiting to get this camera fro about 4 months now, and I finally got it. I would have to say it is super lit to me, and it takes GREAT pictures. I could have never captured a family moment with any other camera but this one. I'm so glad I got it.

I got this camera for my birthday and I love it! It's quick, comfortable, and takes pictures that look pretty professional. Although some time they may turn out blurry if you take the picture and move just the slightest bit, and this camera say's it has 14M but some picture really don't look like they are. Overall it's a great camera for the price and I would definitely recommend it for people who love photography as a hobbie.
