Olympus Stylus 400
The weatherproof Olympus Stylus 400 offers point & shoot simplicity in a rugged and stylish body.

Camera had no problems, was a great camera...but the batteries never lasted very long after their charge. I'd take 20-30 photos, always making sure to close the shutter cover when done to turn off the camera...but the next time I'd go to use it, the battery was almost dead. I just couldn't figure it out! I was constantly recharging the 2 batteries I had for it almost daily.

Took great pictures the first year 1/2.
I also want to mention that I protected this camera like it was my only child.
However, I picked it up one day and took a picture, then I could not get the cover to slide back across the lens. 2 days later(out of the blue)started shutting again but now every time you open it and the lens comes out it does not focus. Any picture you take is smeared and smudged. It is absolutely useless. I purchased it 11/28/03 for $437.99 total (Sucker). I emailed Olympus and was assured "Olympus cameras are designed for and do provide many years of use" but I would have to pay a flat fee of $143.00 for rapair since it was no longer under warranty + shipping and insurance. Or since I am a valued customer in need of repair, I am now eligible to participate in their "Repair Trade-Up program". This allows you to purchase "at a discount" a brand new(not factory refurbished) camera!! What a deal—-Not!! Look for someone with a better warranty, they expect their product will last at least as long as their warranty. I should have realized that when it only had a year warranty.

I got this for Christmas 2003 and for the first year it worked great. The picture quality was good, compact size makes it easy to carry, and it was easy to use. However, Murphys Law kicked in and as soon as the warranty was up I started having problems. At first it took forever for the lens cover to close. I had to try 2-3 times before the lens would finally retract. Then, one day I closed it to look at a picture and when I opened the lens cover again, the lens never came out. I took it to the shop to get an estimate on the cost to repair it and it came to between $180-$230 plus shipping to Olympus and insurance. For that price I might as well buy a new camera. I think it's ridiculous (unless you are the type of person who likes the "latest" version of everything) to pay $400 for a camera and need to replace it a year later.

The slider door that turns this camera on broke on my camera and on one my friend bought as well. It works well in all weather (rain and snow) It sucks in low light conditions and the auto exposure usually did a poor job. I had a friend with a camera phone that took better pictures at a concert we went to. no sound with the video is lame as well. other than those things, it was a good camera
