At first this camera may seem underwhelming because of its cheap shinny plastic body style but the Olympus 3500
AKA super zoom was built for a good experience. With the weatherproof casing we were able to walk through a rainy day without worrying about the camera being water damaged. There were times that we wanted to get a closer look at the shot to set the composition, with the handy 3500 zoom
feature we were able to compose a tight shot at the scale desired. The cameras body felt pretty light and easy to use since the manual functions were minimal; there are a few auto setting for different scenarios that made the camera feel more versatile.
During a night stroll we tested the limits of the built in flash which we found handy when needed. Overall I find this camera to be user friendly. This is a great camera for casual photography because of its compact body style, discrete design and quiet shutter. You'll feel comfortable bringing this point shoot anywhere. The camera may not offer the most creative control, but the image quality was consistently impressive.
