I wasn't happy with the camera. Too many photos came out blurry. At first I thought it was just me, but then I had two other people shoot some pictures and most of those were blurry. I plan on returning it for a full refund! Just not what I expected and a big disappointment.

Camera is defective. They want me to pay to send it back to be repaired. If it can't BE REPAIRED THE WANT TO SEND ME A RECONDITIONED CAMERA. I WOULD RATHER EAT THE LOSS, THAN DEAL WITH THEM AGAIN. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER Olympus PRODUCT!!

I bought this camera for my wife. It takes pictures that are comparable to an SLR camera. It's good value for the price. I recommend this product.

This is my first digital camera though I'm no stranger to photography. I wanted something I could carry with me on my nature walks and review and delete what I didn't want without having to develop them then toss.
I'm still learning the in's and out's of the 340 but so far I really like it to my surprise the other night when we had the "super moon" decided to see if I could get a shot, I did, without setting up a , tripod, changing lenses, etc. I was so surprised.
Anyway, size is good, fits in my hand well, price was great and its not that hard to figure out oh and I love the color, I choose purple, change from all my other boring black cameras.

This is a fantastic little camera and I highly suggest you shoot some photos in the punk mode in the Majic heading. All the photos are sharp and great contrast. This is my 3rd Olympus camera. I began with their first digital SLR the E-300. Still works great then I bought the compact 1010 camera and still works and I gave it to my friend. This new camera is a true gem.

My girlfriend purchased this camera for me as a gift. I needed something compact to take to concerts that I attend. At the last show that I saw, I was very close to the stage and because of the lighting and movement of the artist I thought that I would have an issue. I was able to find the proper settings and take some great photos. I was really excited when I saw them. I plan to purchase a larger Olympus camera shortly. This camera rocks!

Third Olympus camera good feel, great pictures and video record button lets you go from taken pictures to video with out going in to menu to setup. Times 10 lens gets you closer than my old samsung times 5. I'm hard on cameras working in constrution and roller skating. We'll let you know how this camera holds up under pressure. My last samsung St 66 didn't make it a year. It would be the best if you could have control of the zoom in video mode.

I was so excited to receive this camera in the mail. I put the battery inside the camera and immediately began testing it. I went outside to take pictures of my peach blossoms and noticed that when I zoomed in on a flower, the flower would stay blurry while the background was crystal clear! I tried several different types solutions (macro, micro, scene change, etc), and nothing worked! I started taking pictures of my dogs in broad daylight and they were coming out blurry! I also tried taking pictures with flash and they were blurry also. After reading all the reviews on this site, I was really looking forward to my camera. But I did a little research on sites such as Amazon and CNET and found that there were other users who had the same problem as me. I am so disappointed. And I’m sending it back for a full refund.
