Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Image

Image:
"Certainly not the outstanding clarity of image that I have come to expect of Olympus cameras and Zuiko lenses over the last several decades."
_
"I'm sure it's great ... Not that my camera came broken or anything... Every photo had a shade of pink on top of the fact the 5 axis mechanics we so poorly made you could see the inside of the zoom lens and no even what your facing."
_
"C. The flash is incredibly weak and illuminates about 2 feet away only, night images are horrible."
_
"For me, image quality is important and this is where the SH-1 has a bit of a problem, but not unexpected from a small sensor camera."
_
"I had the SH-50 and returned it because I thought the wobbling lens would give me problems later on and the image quality was only so so."
_
"The only thing I have observed is that the image stabilization is OK...but not great."
_
"Just be aware that those wonderful images come at a price: nearly every shot is 4-5 MB in size on your flash drive."
_
"Photo quality:Excellent."
_
"The camera's image stabilizer is exceptional, meaning you don't have to fret a lot over shutter speeds and apertures."
_
"The image stabilizer is so good that those night shots don't become blurred."
_
"It may have been the example I was using, but most of the images were lacking clear focus."

Photo

Photo:
"There are many others who are much more qualified to judge the picture quality of this camera so I will leave that to them (for the record it took great photos during my recent vacation).My only real complaint is that geotagging is hit or miss with my iPhone."
_
"There is just too much jpeg compression or noise compression artifact and the photos just didn't look good."
_
"This camera is for fun photos, not for super serious portraits etc."
_
"Great photos and video, arrived in two days."
_
"It proved to be very easy to learn (even without reading the instructions), and the battery life is good for at least 300 photos."
_
"The app is much more usable than the one for the Samsung, and allows for sharing of photos very easily."
_
"I have taken amazing photos and the retro look makes it even cooler"

Video

Video:
"Makes weird noises while on and recording videos."

Zoom

Zoom:
"Higher end cameras than this one, with an APS-C size BSI-CMOS sensor and interchangeable lenses, are the thing to have if you want to take pictures where a computer zoomed view just shows more details, but I was worried about the size of carrying one of those around in a coat pocket, and not being able to afford to drop one."
_
"Very good zoom and quality."
_
"I wanted a replacement that had an impressive amount of zoom like the Samsung (which had a 21x optical zoom), and being an Olympus fan from their Micro 4 3 products, I decided to give this a shot, as it hit all the right buttons (including a 24x optical zoom)Let me put it this way: I'd like to thank Samsung for making a camera that broke."
_
"I absolutely LOVED my Camedia 10x optical zoom - always (every time) got the best pictures of anybody at the party, whale watching cruise, peak bagging - summit evidence, glorious sunsets, and outstanding nature shots."
_
"I would consider this camera the king of the moderate priced, easy to use, compact zoom cameras."
_
"The 24X optical zoom is crystal clear and very good color and detail."
