Newer, Better Camera.

Recently purchased the VG-120. It was to replaced an older digital camera. This Olympus is so very much better. I can not only adjust the pictures I take with it but with the disc downloaded on my computer, I can now adjust the ones taken with old camera. This is the best camera I have ever owned.

love this camera.

I recently purchased the VG-120. It was to replaced an older digital camera that I was not happy with. With old camera, my pictures came out so dark or red shaded. No matter how I tried to adjust the picture on computer I was never happy. This Olympus is so very much better. I can not only adjust the pictures I take with it but with the disc downloaded on my computer, I can now adjust the ones taken with old camera. This is the best camera I have ever owned.

i can not say that this is the right camera for seniors that do not understand all the functions ,but it would be much easier if you had a handbook instead of going on line to figure it out

Excellent small digital camera

We were looking for a simple, basic small digital camera that basically just took pictures. This Olympus VG-120 did that yet has many more features if choose to use them. What we like most is it allows you to just point & shoot and takes very clear, nice pictures!

Shutter Button

Ido not like how the shutter button is delayed. I miss a lot of great shots because of it.

My new VG-120 camera goes everywhere with me.

I take my VG-120 with me just about everywhere. Its lite weight makes it perfect for camping and hiking, the 14 megapixels make taking detailed photos of my custom furniture designs at work and when taking it to the clubs at night the magic art filters (like draw, punk and sparkle) make some fantastic photos. Thank you very much for the great camera.....S. T.

Value For Money

I am totally satisfied with the camera. Given the features it best in its class. The 5x zoom really takes the camera at par with Semi SLR.
Built Quality is average.
