"Great Fun Camera"on by loglew
Pros Small, Easy to operate, menu is not too tough to learn, great jpegs, nice art filters, auto focus is NOT slow. Pets and kids are not difficult to shoot.
Cons Kit lens extends a little farther than I would Iike.
Summary I read the CNET review and one of the con's mentioned is..."Not good for kids and pets"...well works good for me. I have shot my daughter playing tennis at 1/1000 shutter speed and you can almost read the brand on the tennis ball. She was playing on a clay court and I got shots of the ball kicking up the clay. I am no pro photographer either. I also have pics from a pro baseball game that came out extremely nice. The color is fantastic. Low light is really nice. I have friends with high end Canon's that are amazed at the quality of this camera and the images it produces. I can't say enough good things about it. I would buy this camera again even if it costs $100 more than I paid.
Pros Nice image quality. Nice handling. Compact.
Cons Where the hell is the orientation sensor???
Summary Totally unfathomable. How Olympus could justify leaving out the orientation sensor in this otherwise terrific camera boggles the mind.
