A Great Little Camera Apr 01, 2010
By Timothy A. Warren Jr.
I have had the camera for a few days now and really put it through the paces. It is by far one of the best little point and clicks that I have had and I have had at least 5 in the past 5 years. It's built well and has a exceptional battery life (275 picks per charge on average with 14 meg pictures) and the recharge is fairly quick. I added a 16gig memory card for the video recording aspect and I love it. I can record 5 hours and 50 mins of 720p on the thing which is way nicer than the Flip that I was looking at. I used to get an occasional blurry shot with my other cameras from them not focusing well on moving objects (kids) but with this one I haven't had a bad shot yet on the kids running in the yard. It truly is amazing.
All in all it's a great little camera for the price.
And don't let the other guy scare you off from this camera. He more than likely put the card in before he hooked the camera up to his computer. By the way, make sure you hook the camera up to your computer BEFORE you put your memory card in. But if you screw up and put it in first all you have to do is clear out your pictures, eject the card and then plug it up to the computer for a fresh install.

Awesome little camera! May 11, 2010
I just bought this camera at best buy in Miami on vacation. I took it to the beach multiple times, went snorkeling for a couple of hours, and use it for everyday shots. The pictures are crystal clear. The 720p HD video looks awesome, especially on your HD tv. No issues with this camera. No problems with hooking it up to the computer. Just plug it in and there it is. Charges fast. Takes a sd card for extra memory. I don't know what happened with these others peoples' cameras. Probably user error. Don't let the 1 star reviews scare you away.
All in all, great camera. Battery life was long. Took a ton pix at highest resolution, video, and editing on the camera, and it lasted all day. About the same size as my regular didital camera. Nice features. Best buy has it on sale for 269. Go for it

Great little point and shoot. Apr 24, 2010
I liked this camera out of the box. The software is intuitive, the options varied and I took it to the tidepools right away and got some great super macro shots of marine life underwater. Rinsed off the saltwater and took it to the mountains for the long shots. It is small enough for a pocket and great for hiking and backpacking - no worries on dropping etc... Still playing with it and learning all the options but I highly recommend the camera. It does all that it says it does; it is compact and burly. Found the digital zoom fuzzy and worthless but overall a great deal - excellent improvements over the older models and well worth the price.

Broken? That's just TUFF Sep 17, 2011
BEWARE OLYMPUS RECONDITIONED
After less than 10 min. video and 30 or so stills (mainly to test my new camera and brag about its features) my factory-reconditioned 6020 crapped out. At 120$, it was a steal but, less than a week after the 90-day warranty expired, the camera refused to recognize the fully charged battery or any battery. Throughout this period, despite the cameras freezeproof, waterproof, shockproof `abilities', I coddled this baby. After weeping on the phone to Olympus they said they'd take a look at it and maybe clean the contacts or something. I sent it special UPS (12$-recommended) and after a month of various delays, the service center finally said that they could repair it for 130$. Uh...How `bout just cleaning it? NO. Diagnosing? NO. After threatening bad reviews they lowered the price to 73$--as you can see, I'd rather warn you guys.

Amazing camera! Aug 11, 2010
After punishing this poor little camera all summer, i've gotta say i am deeply impressed with it. The case is now scratched and a bit worn from all the abuse i've put it through, and not only is it still holding up like a champ but it takes astonishing pictures; during my whitewater rafting trip i caught some killer 'mid action' pictures and never had to worry about keeping it dry, and never once had a blurry shot no matter how rocky the ride got.
The panorama option is also a phenomenal addition- i have some amazing sunset shots that look seamless thanks to the built in sensor (automatically lines up and takes the next 2 shots for you- all you have to do is move the camera and it does the rest). The zoom really impressed me too, especially underwater (just make sure you set it to the underwater option- i found that makes a big difference).
I also love how easy this camera is to use- my dad bought the new Canon underwater camera for our California trip, and he spent the better portion of every killer moment tryin to adjust his settings or figure out which button to push. If you read the manual on it and learn the Canon before hand its a pretty cool camera, but personally when i'm in the heat of the moment for an awesome shot i dont want to be fiddling with buttons and trying to remember how to get to whatever setting i need.
I give this camera an A+, and i'm really looking forward to seeing what improvements they make on it in the next couple years.
