|Olympus Stylus 1040 10 Megapixel Digital Camera
The stylish camera with plenty of substance. The ultra-elegant Stylus 1040 is barely over a half an inch thick yet it’s packed with high-tech features. Intelligent Auto automatically adjusts the settings to optimize the scene you’re shooting. In-Camera Panorama seamlessly stitches together multiple images creating one amazing panoramic shot. Anywhere you take it, the Stylus 1040 not only looks good -- it captures amazing results.
Olympus xD Picture Card (M Plus 1GB)
You will appreciate the convenience of the new 1GB M Plus xD-Picture Card. This ultra-compact card allows you to capture much more and in higher resolution before the images must be downloaded or the card changed. The M Plus card is 1.5 times faster then the M type when saving data.

There are some nice, usable scene modes, which are helpful. It has an anti-shake feature. The movie mode is fairly decent, although there is no ability to zoom.
Great little camera6/9/2012
Easy to clean, Great picture quality, Large clear lcd,, Simple controls,, Well built / quality Cons: Lag / shutter delay Great, compact form-factor.
If you are looking for a compact and small camera at a great price that you can just slide into a pocket, then this is highly recommended. The picture quality is great for a camera with a lens of this size and in this price range. One of the cons of this camera is that it uses xd cards for memory, but you also receive a microsd to xd adapter, which is great, since xd cards tend to be more expensive than microsd. The other complaint I have is the noise that the camera makes in auto mode. The noise is the lens trying to auto-focus anytime the picture changes.
I love this camera. I have been looking everywhere for a new one but couldn't find it. The price was nice and the camera looks awesome.
Excellent pocket point and shoot.5/28/2009
I bought this camera at a special price of $125 without mail-in rebates, and I have to say that I am very satisfied with it. The 10 megapixel are great, but it is not the main reason to buy this camera.

It is not really a big deal, but something that I could live without. The reason I gave it 4 starts for performance and ease of use is because the menus for changing settings are a little confusing, and the fact that the cycle time between pictures is a little slower than what I would prefer.
best pocket model4/29/2009
I like it. Compact, it rides in my shirt pocket, with an easy-slide lens protector that switches it on and allows point and shoot. Yet it gets 10-MP quality pics, with two tulip stages and a wide range of modes and options.
I bought this camera because of the size and high ISO settings. This camera works great and takes pretty good panoramic pictures. The 3rd picture has a slight line when stitched but I have noticed that on several other brands too. You can't beat the price for such a good 10 MP camera. You won't be disappointed!!
Technology at its best !!4/20/2009
1st Olympus camera I've owned. Never had a camera with this quality of picture. Just point and click, this camera takes care of the rest. Takes great movies with the M+ 1gig memory card also. Can't go wrong with the Olympus Stylus 1040 !!!!!

Great Little Camera4/9/2009
I ordered this camera mainly because of the size and brand. Our last 2 digital cameras have been made by Olympus and we haven't had a single problem with them. This camera makes very good pictures and is so simple to use my 4 year old Grandaughter has been making pictures with it. My daughter was so impressed, she had me order her one to carry in her purse. I bought a cell phone case for mine and I carry it on my belt.
