Comments about Olympus Stylus 820 SW Digital Camera (Silver) - New!:

I wanted to upgrade my old Nikon Coolpix 4600. It took great photos, but the time between shots was about 15-20 seconds, which can be annoying.

I was hoping this would be a good replacement, but am disappointed. Outdoor photos are great, but indoors leaves much to be desired. The quality seems darker and grainier than the 4mp Nikon I was used to using. Also, the controls are too small. It does take great outdoor video with good sound.

Also, using the XD card is a pain. I am taking it back to exchange for another Nikon or Canon. Even the photos from my cheap Kodak are better than this one...
