the cam is amazing for its price range.. I got a 4GB SDHC card and rechargeable batteries and charger free with it.
The pros: not much noise even in low light; got loadsa preset modes to shoot in, HD video recording, amazing outdoor shots; 27 mm wide angle; uses normal AA batteries.
The cons: The lens cap is a little loose, it comes off pretty easily.
The battery flap is a little hard to open; Not many manual controls..
I love it anyway. Haven't had any problems so far.. Worth the money =))
And thanks to flipkart for the amazing service and on-time delivery. I placed the order on 10th and got it in 2 days! Keep up the good job. =)
Excellent intro to photography

I found this camera as a better option than traditional 'point and shoot' compact cameras because it lets you experiment with focus, manual settings and light/exposure while giving the ease of a compact when needed.
Coming back to photography after amore than a decade (when I used to shoot with film), I find this camera a better choice to ease back into the hobby, especially as it is lighter on the pocket than a DSLR.
Best Camera at 8499... satisfied with flipkart's service...
by Dileep Reddy on 2013-01-04
I have purchased this camera, recently from flipkart at 8499 rupees. for this price range its performance is good than i expected, i have gone through many reviews before selecting this CAM; i have chosen this with mixed views. con mentioned by other users was 1. battery drain out 2. loose lens cap.
I have tested this product for battery back up, i have did continues video recording for 1hr 30min and 250 photo with auto & P modes with & with out flash (60:40). all this was done with one cycle of charging camelion batteries for 8 Hrs.
Photo Quality is perfect, where it comes to Video quality is awesome but file size for 30 min recording will take up to 2-3Gb. use bigger SDHC and Higher Class.
Over all I am satisfied with this products performance and recommend for others...
inside the box You will get cam (14 Mp, 22 OZ & 4 DZ), LR6 4AA size Panasonic non rechargeable alkaline batteries, user manual, software CD, Warranty card & Promotional CD with Basic techniques of photography from Olympus.
Flipkart provides Carry bag for camera, one set of Charger with rechargeable batteries. & fastest delivery.
if you are thinking for going for camera and stuck with Nikon/Olympus/Canon... go for Olympus if you are getting at 8499, if costs with nikon & cannon then go for any of the brand. there was no difference found by me, i have checked/used equivalent models of this product. only Olympus comes with image stabilization as extra feature with this cam.

I bought this Camera just 3 days back on flipcart. They give best price and ontime delivery.
Basically I took this camera for 22x Optical zoom. Also I have Sony Camcorder with 10x optical zoom. Both optical zoom give me same (Distance wise) picture.
As per my understanding 22x should give me more closer look than my sony gadget.
But it give me same look which is completely not acceptable. Just mentioning the 22x and actually giving 10x it means they are cheating customers. Now I am writing to Olympus also for this issue.
If you are taking this camera for optical zoom just think twice. Also back side adjustable knob is very cheap quality.

i have been using this one for the last 6 months, no probs so far.
1. long range zoom, decent image stabilization at longer zooms
2. good quality pics, less noise, at iso's upto 800
3. used with AA batteries which you can find at every corner
4. decent manual controls like iso, exposure, 16 different shooting modes, decent auto shoot
1. you cant record audio with video while using optical zoom
2. noise becomes more at higher isos
3. lack of manual shutter settings
4. useless 3d photo, i mean, you cant even preview that.
5. poor colour reproduction some times, when the light is not enough and with the flash

Clicks fotos good enough. but not as per expectation go for sony which is in the same price range. Focusing and user software not that good. difficult to make quick settings

I was looking for a DSLR camera, but all are very costly. This olympus is just awesome at this price range with 22x zoom. Pic clarity is so good .I love to have this cam. Super macro mode is amazing. This cam makes me feel like photographer. With correct manual settings (exposure time, shutter speed, etc.,) you can have a great photos. Flipkart service is so nice I got in 3 business days.
relly nice piece of tech

The best camera, I've ever had, its almost like an SLR camera, if you know how to use it.
I've always loved Olympus, years ago I had one with those film rolls, amazing picture quality, this is one is above expectation. Olympus cameras will never let you down.
Thanks to flipkart for quick and easy delivery.
