"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.

Olympus V207040SU010 Final Thoughts

"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.

"She swears by it."

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.

"All in my Pelican case."

However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. I am so impressed with this Olympus V207040BU040! Looks amazing and excited to try it. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. The different features are amazing and the pics came out really great.

After over 10,000 pictures, my Canon 6149B001 operates perfectly in every aspect.

"Has a big LCD display."

It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for. Likewise, don't rule out film. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually.

"So far I like it a lot."

It took me a while to figure it out. The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning.

"You will love it!"

I like everything about the camera. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. I needed a Weather Sealed Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. Make sure you format first or it may fry on you.

The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. Love the small compact size which will be perfect for traveling. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle. The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent.

"My girlfriend loves it."

It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close. The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Weather Sealed Point & Shoot Digital Camera.
