Not a pro
Just wanted a camera to take on a cruise to the caribbean. play in the pool or the lake with the kids and not have to worry about ruining the camera. This camera takes great pictures. great video. is easy to use except for the small menu buttons. I love this camera

great outdoor camera
Great small camera. Has been perfect for our family. Love the underwater capabilities. Battery life isn't great.

Great camera, but.....
Love the camera, picture quality is excellent. But the scroll button when navigating throught the menu is too sensative and small. Hard to operate. Also there should be some sort of "lock" on the video record button so you do not accidently push it when holding camera. Overall excellent camera! Overall rating is 4 stars because of small and sensitve scroll button.

A true enigma
I reviewed earlier, before a bicycle trip to France. Took over 800 pics, printed 525. Images utterly superb, especially when viewed on iPad. Prints stellar, too. But I hate the camera despite its performance; 1) The tiny control button has raised ridges that actually control selections, not the surrounding bezel as in my two previous Olys 2) Tedious to delete, as tiny button can easily slip (go entirely the wrong direction) around the vertial axis of the button. 3) Menu selections, like simple flash selection, are highlighted in yellow but are not in the expected location in the vertical column. Again the silly button control can easily select the wrong choice as well 4) Auto-focus is incredibly slow 5) shutter pressure is far too high, requiring enough force to shake the camera 6) shutter delay is extreme, especially obvious when shooting flash. Beautiful build quality, worst physical handling I've ever seen. Great images, lousy camera!

poor image clarity overshadows everything
I've had this camera about a year. I bought it so I could record video whilst on a small sailboat. I thought the gps info would be useful in that respect. Although I have been satisfied with the video performance, the quality of still images is nothing short of deplorable. A close up view of the pixels has always shown uniform blurring across the whole picture. Placing the lens on the top corner of the case defies common sense also. A rugged camera which one could reasonably expect to be held firmly, even maybe with gloves on should not have the lens in the corner where your fingers get in the way and invariably spoil the pictures. What were they thinking? As a ruggedized camera it fails miserably, as a video camera it is adequate.
