My Olympus sz-15 died in the middle of my trip to Tanzania. I was photographing giraffes when it started to flicker and quit every time I tried to turn it on. It was less than 2 years old.

Have to hold breath & shoot. Good pictures of Alaska. Glaciers from our truck, far away & up close, all look good. I couldn't believe the distance. I had an Olympus before and liked it, but only 3x zoom. This 24x is great! Pictures of clouds & moose. Thank you. Couldn't get a second battery for it though.

I had very high hopes for this camera based on my very positive experiences with two previous Olympus cameras, but in the end was very disappointed. Auto focus was inconsistent leaving pictures without good definition. Colors were washed out compared to scenes being photographed. Video focus was constantly hunting, resulting in playback that was sometimes very sharp, and others almost unrecognizable. It has lots of great functions for taking photos, but unfortunately, that functionality didn't result in good pictures on many occasions. On the other hand, some pictures came out great and were real keepers, but the inconsistency drove me crazy. I’m not a professional photographer, but I do enjoy photography and have been engaged in the hobby for a long time. This camera was not going to allow me to enjoy my avocation. I returned it for a refund after three weeks and many disappointing photos while on vacation.

I got this camera to use on my daily walks, I like the range of the zoom, As I see various wildlife. Also the super macro for photographing insects and flowers, along the roadside. It fits in my shirt pocket, in cold weather able to keep it warm. Missing out on photo ops will not be a problem.

My first my son got me for Christmas, was overjoyed! It sucks, I have tried and tried, blurry pictures, it zooms in and out on its own and by the time it stops doing its thing is too late to take a picture then comes out blurry. Love my sons Sony Syber shot that is ancient and love how crisp and clear the pictures and videos are. Took one or 2 videos with this and can hear the shutter noise and if you try to zoom it goes all blurry same as when I try to take a picture, just hate he spent all that money on this camera and how the heck to you tell someone after all that trouble that this camera sucks!!! He was so proud of it bought the case too.

Got the camera and got blurry photos and videos that were not synched with the audio. Returned it and got a replacement of the same camera and the same result. This is a bad camera and
I have lost Circus and Christmas photos and videos due to this defective product. Memories that I cannot redo in photos and videos of the grandchildren.

I bought this Camera a few weeks ago. This camera meets all my needs for a novice photographer. The zoom works very well and the quality of the photos even in low light are great. I would recommend this camera to everyone.

Am not impressed with photo quality especially with flash. My 8 year old Sony Cyber Shot takes much better pics. The control button is a bit erratic and doesn't seem to respond properly. When taking video the sound of the lens adjusting is heard in the audio. Advertised as "wide angle" but doesn't seem to take a wider shot than my Sony Cyber Shot. Separate battery charger is a bit expensive.
