Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"If you can live with this glitch and are prepared to buy Ni-MH batteries and a charger (or CR-V3 batteries), this is one incredibly good digital camera I fully recommend."
_
"Only drawback is battery consumption - eats up AAs and spits them out."
_
"The basic chemistry and construction of alkaline batteries means that they are not able to efficiently deliver power at this very high rate."
_
"The only problem with the camera is the way it goes through batteries!"
_
"They drain the batteries after a few pictures and then malfunction.2."
_
"Like everyone else, the battery life is terrible."
_
"But as soon as the objects are beyond 10 ft or so, the pictures become bad (very blurry and dark).As for the batteries, I experienced no problem as long as I used 2000 MAh NiMH batteries."
_
"Since the camera uses only one pair of batteries, it is easy to carry a spare that is fully charged."
_
"Takes very good quality photos, but the batteries run out after a day of use."
_
"You HAVE to use NiMh batteries - Olympus should have made this amply clear."

Flash

Flash:
"I also tend to have a problem with red-eye with regular flash so I always have to use the red-eye reduction setting to take pics of people."
_
"The only glitch is I hate the flash."
_
"One drawback in my mind is that the camera is always on auto flash, and as I use the camera at night, I don't like to have to turn the flash off every time I turn the camera on."
_
"o The (optional) underwater housing is cute, albet bulky, but the photos you take with it are not clear (because of the bad flash)."
_
"One can easily take 50 - 60 pics with plenty of flash and LCD use on one pair of rechargeable batteries."
_
"The LCD still works fine, the flash still works, perfectly, it functions flawlessly even after a 120+ degree Iraqi summer."
_
"After using this camera for the past year and a half, never having any problems, all of a sudden the flash is not working properly, my pictures that once turned out great, are dark and unusable....talked to Olympus, they will charge me $100 to take a look at the camera and then charge me to fix it, it is just not worth it."
_
"Had I gone easier on the flash and LCD I'm guessing that 450 photos would have been a breeze with them."
_
"With NiMH's and occasional use of the flash, LCD in rec mode, I was able to get 200+ photos easily."

Image

Image:
"This camera has 3MP 3x and low price tag, but that doesn't gaurantee good pics."
_
"Just 3MP doesn't mean good pics..."
_
"Now for the Pros and Cons -Pros -Takes beautiful and sharp pics."
_
"One can easily take 50 - 60 pics with plenty of flash and LCD use on one pair of rechargeable batteries."
_
"This camera also comes with a panorama setting which works well with the program that comes with it (with some practice).I really like how you don't need a card reader to download your pics onto your computer - the USB cable (which is a pretty common cable among electronics) plugs right into the camera port."
_
"It shoots great macros for my eBay auctions and fabulous scenic pics."
_
"In my opinion a good digital camera is all about three things: image quality, ease of use, and size."

Photo

Photo:
"Of course, that doesn't work well with spontaneous photos of people, but I don't think I have any less success with my digital than I did with my SLR."
_
"Very few of the photos I've taken with the D-560 have disappointed me."
_
"I also had some problems getting the camera to power up so that I could download photos from it to my computer when it was new."
_
"o The (optional) underwater housing is cute, albet bulky, but the photos you take with it are not clear (because of the bad flash)."
_
"Have taken more than 20,000 photos with it and it's great."
_
"I print with a HP 6110 multifunction printer & the photos turn out excellent!"
_
"Takes very good quality photos, but the batteries run out after a day of use."
_
"The latter enables you to take fantastic close-up photos from as near as 0.8 inch (2cm) away & above."
_
"The photos turn out great with excellent detail and very true to life textures & colors!"

Quality

"I've used it for outside and inside shots and am happy with the quality of the pictures."
_
"Takes very good quality photos, but the batteries run out after a day of use."
_
"The only good thing is the software, which is fantastic, but even it can't fix the poor quality of the photos."
_
"This turned out to be the worst Digital Camera I have PurchasedBought this as a second easy to carry low price $ 229.00 and found that the picture quality is good only in daylight."
_
"The best thing I can say about this camera is that if you know how to use it well, it takes really good quality pictures."

Size

Size:
"Ease of use: Accustomed to a bulky SLR, I didn't think I'd like using such a small camera, but once I got used to it, I love it."
_
"Small, cute and easy to use."
_
"Thus, you can't view the pictures you've just taken without waiting this 8 secondsThe only reason I used this product is I liked the smaller picture file size which newer cameras do not have."
_
"This is just the way it is in a camera of this size and price, and is not a fault unique to Olympus."
_
"She is very pleased with it - relatively easy to use, great photos and small enough to carry in her purse."
