2 out of 5 eggsvg-120

Pros: small lightweight and has many functions

Cons: lens go stuck and would not open after one day at the beach. Sent to get repaired which they did under warranty. kind of surprised since wind was blowing that day so must have got sand inside. tech called me b4 sent in to try and fix and almost got it working. major problem now is after 1 year and few months it just would not turn on anymore. since warranty over it is garbage. I would expect it to last 3 years plus at $70.

Other Thoughts: I like their service under warranty. Should I expect 3 years life for a $70 camera? Pic and video quality were good. I am thinking it is their cheaply made line.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware of Olympus

Pros: none....dead camera

Cons: 8 month old Stylus Camera's rear LCD screen went really dark to the point you cannot read/see. I sent camera back to Olympus under warranty and was denied repair because they saw an almost undetectable dent on front of camera!
No way in the world this dent had anything to do with LCD crapping out....just a cheesy way for them to weasel out of their warranty!!!
BEWARE!!!

Other Thoughts: If anyone wants to see the dent they are denying me for I will be glad to upload
