Olympus V104160BU000 First Impressions

"Great clarity."

I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold. Been looking for a easy to use, simple Olympus Point & Shoot Digital Camera. Reduced kit by one star since enclosed camera bag is too small for camera. I needed a Olympus Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas.

"Decent battery life."

Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. I like everything about the camera. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor.

Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Olympus's excellent system--wow!

"I take it when I travel."

I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. Better photos than her XR phone. The stability at long zoom was fantastic. I will update this report once I have used it more.

"You guessed it, buy this."

10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift.

It size is great for pockets and small purses. Color and white balance is generally good. But overall I really liked this bundle and the quality is awesome! I would like a firmware update to fix that. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed.

"It's SOOOOOO cool."

Some people even claim that the Olympus E-M5 MARK II 1240 BLACK rivals medium format quality. Let me say from the start, I really like Olympus. Looking forward to seeing how the weight savings impact my hikes and travel. Olympus, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close.
