Bought this for my 13-14 year old daughter. She has taken it everywhere with her and has taken some great little pics with it. Small and compact. Love that it doesn't have a lens that pops out so the gears don't strip!!

Comments about Olympus Olympus Stylus 1040 Digital Camera (Black):

Once I figured out how to turn it on, it is very easy to use. I didn't carefully read the entire product description, so I didn't realize it has a rechargable lithium battery. I'm not great at remembering to charge batteries. It is very slim which is good for fitting in your pocket, but it's a little hard to hold. The large menu buttons that light up are a good feature. I haven't explored all the features yet. The movie option was a little hidden, but worth finding. The black casing is sylish, but shows every fingerprint.

Comments about Olympus Olympus Stylus 1040 Digital Camera (Black):

Bought this camera for my daughter and she was picky on the features she wanted. She wanted an ultra compact camera that has a smile recognition. Most of the cameras that has similar features were [$] more than this camera. We wanted a dependable camera. We have had a digital Olympus for years and have loved it.

Comments about Olympus Olympus Stylus 1040 Digital Camera (Black):

I saw this camera only in one store so far, and really liked it. Its totally brand new, nobody else had it, and its features were quite unique for a camera that costs [$]. I ended up buying it as a gift for my boyfriend, and we both love it because its so small and captures very good pictures on every mode. The coolest feature is that you do not have to put it on any modes, it senses everything, so you do not need to keep changing it! Is really great, and the price is even better because you get more for your money!

Comments about Olympus Olympus Stylus 1040 Digital Camera (Black):

I haven't had to many chances to use this camera yet; however, the few times I have it has been easy to use. There are many functions that I have yet to learn but other than that I like it so far. The price is great for a camera that offers 10 mega pixels. We need a camera for work (Bodyshop) and I am trying to convince my manager to purchase this camera.

Comments about Olympus Olympus Stylus 1040 Digital Camera (Black):

The first time I saw this camera on the official website of olympus, I fell in love with it and right away call its customer service to ask when will it be out in the market. From then on I checked if it's already available, fortunately Ritzcamera is the first one to have it, so I purchase it right away as a christmas gift for my brother. It is really something, its small body is packed with so much features, it is really elegant and worth the price. It's intelligent features make this ulta-thin camera a "one heck of a buy"!
