    The camera is still bulky to wear as a tourist. It is still difficult to see a picture looking into the sun even w the drop down window. Me and my fellow traveler who had the same camera were unable to make the WiFi work to transfer pictures from our camera to other devices which was frustrating by the "easy" transfer promise was one of the top reasons we bought the camera.

    I wanted a smaller camera to take the place of an aging SLR that was a little bulky for traveling. The B500 takes excellent stills and video, even in low light. Love the Bluetooth capabilities.

    Have had olympus cameras in the past. my large lensed olympus crapped out so I tried this camera. Had a little learning to do about the differences but once I figured it out,camera worked great on indoor pictures. hope the outdoor ones will look the same.

    Great compact camera! My professional Nikon is too big and bulky to take on planes or just everywhere. This camera is fantastic. My only wish is that it did better for zooming and close ups.

    I bought this camera for an upcoming vacation - my Nikon is large and heavy and cumbersome. So far this tiny thing fits my hand great and does a good, fast job. I'm still learning how to do this or that on it but the quality of the photos I get back is outstanding. This is a great little camera for first timers that may or may not want to upgrade later. I got the purple one, it's very pretty.

    Not top of the line but neither is the price.

    For the price, you get a lot. Not perfect but a good, all around camera for a beginner or novice. Do not expect the camera to perform like a $1000 + camera and you won't be disappointed. Use for portraits, landscapes, some night work, some sports action, close ups, just general photography. Probably the best camera of this type in this price range. A little bulky to carry around but performs very well when needed. Need to study up & practice to get familiar with the features and learn it's strength & weaknesses before you start to shoot anything serious. One of the best features is that it uses AA batteries so they are easy to change out when batteries are running low. The tilt screen also comes in very handy. Offers a little wider lens angle that is a small difference but makes a noticeable difference in wide angle photos. Up to 600 shots claimed on one set of batteries. Expect about 300 to 400 in real world use. Depends on battery type, weather conditions, flash & zoom usage, No regrets, not for the price and all the features you get plus very good performance. Best Buy has a 13 or 14 day return if you are not satisfied with your purchase. @@@@@@@@ Purchase a good SD card with an 80mb/sec. or faster transfer rate. @@@@@@@
