4 out of 5 eggsHas it's quirks, but not as bad as the other reviewer made it seem.

This review is from: OLYMPUS SZ-15 Black 16 MP 24X Optical Zoom Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

Pros: Great image quality. Light-weight and portable. Great battery life.

Cons: I take a lot of photos in quick succession and there tends to be a lot of motion blur. There is also no way to advance the review screen, you simply have to wait until the image you are reviewing goes away before you can take another shot. Auto-focus can be hit or miss.

Speaking of the review screen.. absolutely HORRIBLE. I've had numerous photos that I thought looked absolutely terrible on the review screen that were actually very good photos. Can be a pain in the @## trying to decipher whether the image is blurry or if it's just the poor resolution/clarity of the review screen.

Other Thoughts: I feel as though I should specify that I use the camera to do automotive photography for multiple car dealerships in my area. As such, I'm not in the overall market for a DSLR or other high end cameras as websites like autotrader and cars.com display images in VGA (640x480 or 0.3 MP). I typically shoot using the 3 MP setting on the camera and then down-sample the image to 640x480 in post with very little other corrections needed. When compared to my other cameras (Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ47, Olympus SP-720UZ) this camera comes in at a much lower price point (picked mine up at SAMs Club for $130), has a better image quality and battery life than it's Olympus big brother, but lags far behind in the speed and quality of the Panasonic. If you're on a tight budget and want a good looking camera that's easy to use and takes a good looking image, this is definitely a good choice.

1 out of 5 eggsUnsatisfied.

This review is from: OLYMPUS SZ-15 Black 16 MP 24X Optical Zoom Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

Pros: Picture quality can be good once you sort out the white balance issue.

Cons: The camera will turn on to an unfocused state 1 out of 3 times. You need to turn the camera off to fix the issue, even then it may not fix the issue.
The pictures are extremely white.
The camera has an issue with powering off. The camera will extend the lense, retract, then extend again until it continually beeps for 5 seconds then powers off.
The camera will no longer zoom to 24x, it will not make it half way until it decides it's going to unzoom on its own, then rezoom, then turn itself off.
