I am a person that loves to take pictures all the time. I tend to carry a camera in my purse wherever I go. When I asked for a new digital camera for Christmas last year I was not surprised to find an Olympus under our tree since my dad loves Olympus cameras. It is an average sized digital camera but the screen in the back it pretty large. This makes it easy when I hand my camera to my four year old niece for her to see what she is taking a picture of. It has many great settings under the scene mode like self portrait which I am known to use alot. This is for when you hold the camera yourself and take a photo of you and your friends. They always come out great. It also takes movies and has a built in microphone. This quality of the videos is ok but could be better. For a digital camera with it built in it does the job. Overall I am happy with my Olympus camera and look forward to many more happy photos in the future.
