"Great small, durable camera"4.0 starson by plugger
Pros: size, shape, durability
Cons: zoom only 2X
Summary: I recently bought the Casio Exilim EX-Z750, and I am very happy with it. However, I miss this little Olympus, which my wife is now using. Like me, she loves the Verve. It fits in a pocket much better than the EX-Z750, is easier to handle, and has a much more durable and protective cover for the lens. For travelling, skiing, backpacking, fishing, boating, etc., the Verve is perfect.
Reviewers question the image quality of the Verve, and that may be a consideration for serious photographers. I've been very pleased, though, with the pictures I've taken with the Verve, which have been crystal clear on 5X7 prints and 17" screens.
This is a great, small, durable camera which I highly recommend for the active person.
