Olympus V207040SU010 First Impressions

"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.

"Husband loves this HeroFiber ."

The HeroFiber is small and fast. HeroFiber, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! Not to mention it worked great as a Weather Sealed Point & Shoot Digital Camera too. No other Weather Sealed Point & Shoot Digital Camera of this size is fast and have the quality of this HeroFiber . Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware.

Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over.
