This review is from: Olympus VR-340 Silver 16MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom
Pros: Feels nice looks good on the outside. I bought it through Newegg!
Cons: First off I would like to say that I am somewhat of a digital camera connoisseur. I have owned many SLR's and point and shoot. I bought this camera to replace an older Olympus point and shoot that I just flat out wore out. It was the best point and shoot I have ever owned. I got this out of the box charged it up and started taking pictures. I noticed that the pictures were very grainy big surprise being 16 mega pixel my old one was 8 mega pixel and those pictures were 100 times better quality. I figured it was due to low light conditions so I went out side, same thing. I kept trying took about 150 pictures and ran the battery down. I recharged the battery and it only let me take 15 pictures before the battery died again! This camera flat out stinks! I wish I had bought a canon they have NEVER let me down. I would like to return this camera but my 8 year old son destroyed the box :(
Other Thoughts: I don't want to slam Olympus too hard, but there is no way I would want my name on this camera. I would be interested to know if Olympus has started to go down hill quality wise
