I recommend Canon G11.

14 megapixels with a maximum aperture of 3.2 forcing me into higher ISO’s? No thanks.

What good is a 10x zoom at F5.9, taking pictures of the sun?

I do not believe I will ever buy another compact camera that does not offer F2 or better.

you won’t find any lens of the common compact size at f/2.0. there just isn’t any glass available that lets that much light in at that small lens diameter.

How many pictures does it manage per charge?

SC - that depends a lot on how you use it. As I said in the review, if you like to “chimp” a lot, you will definitely want to get a spare battery.

Thank you for a quick reply. I realise it depends on the usage but I was looking for some sort of average, for example is there the CIPA standard number or however it’s expressed (sorry, English isn’t my native language), cos that would give some idea and a comparison point with other cameras. Did it do worse than those that have a 210 pictures per charge (with the CIPA standard), which is quite low.

Is the 9010 available in the US?
It is neither on Olympus’ US site nor in any of the online shops I have looked. Only thing there are accessories.

Is is a good first camera? Will it last a long time? I want a good all rounder camera for my 17th birthday and I was wondering how long will it take to be outdated because i don’t want to buy an upgrade. I just want a really decent photo with some tricks and style.
thanx :)

I have one, and it’s absolutely fine.
Just one question. You mentioned the possibility to configure the display button as a secondary power button. Can you tell me how? I don’t seem to be able to find that..

Hi Jos - Great you found your answer. But How about sharing. I have been looking for that secondary powerbutton too.

Hi Thorleif - I’m sorry that I didn’t share that / I guess that finding it made me blush and dive ;-)

To turning the “>” (display button into a secondary power button: go to “setup”, then scroll to find:
” [>] POWER ON   NO ” and change to ‘YES’
