I am so impressed with Olympus ! Last year I purchased a V-40 digital camera from Olympus, and recently noticed a black spot on the viewing screen and it was growing ! I went online to Olympus' consumer relations and got permission to return the product for repair. Olympus REPLACED my camera with a newer,more expensive model at no charge ! They were so nice to me that they now have a Customer-for-Life !!!

This is a great product for taking pictures of my grandchildren and family outings.

I have taken some sharp pictures with the camera, however, on one occasion the camera would simply not focus, and grandchildren don't wait for grandpa to go to the computer and search the manual for a fix.
I realize a printed manual would raise the price of the camera, but hey memories are worth it !

Bought one for my grandaughter when she was vacationing in FL. Once I seen the performace, I bought one as a back up for my work. I take over a hundred photos on most days. I was amazed at how the camera performed. I could actually use this as a primary and would not worry. The price was excellent.

I purchased this camera for my up coming vacation. I have not used it much yet but I have fiddled around with it some. I like the feature of instant video button, instead of having to change "modes". I also love that it keeps track of how many more pictures you are able to take. I used to have to guess or change "mode" to find out. You can tell that I do not like to get into the "mode" on anything.

In 1965 I bought an Olympus Pen EE. I loved it. Gave it to my son last year. My last camera was an Olympus D-545. It was also great, but the viewer was small and the camera was a little too big. This Olympus VG-140 has a large viewing screen, is very thin, has many great features. I love it. I take it with me everywhere.

I had an Olympus D-580 for the last 10 years that took beautiful pictures. Even though it only had 4mb, the photos were professional quality. This new camera takes nice photos, but not as good as my old one. Also, after downloading, it is much harder to use the editing program. I still haven't figured out how to save a photo after editing. Will have to keep trying I guess. In the meantime, I use my microsoft program to edit and save.

I spent hours online, and visiting many stores over a week to find a small camera.
after a few hours in a store playing with the controls of a few models, I decided on the VG-140 Olympus.
I like to movie shooting button that makes quick movie shooting.
The menus are easy to manuver.
Manual is downloaded, but comes with a quick setup guide to get you going.
Image quality is fair "as expected" in this price range. but that may be my inexperience with cameras.
The battery is charged through the pc, or can be pluged in through the adapter.

I have yet to get to grips with this camera. There are too many options available which confuse a person. Menu navigation should be made much simpler.

I miss a view finder as it's hard to see in sunlight. I prefer a paper manual....I hate to have to check the CE. I printed out most of the 76 pages. Wish I had a little booklet.
