Olympus IR-500 - digital camera review

 

Olympus IR-500 - digital camera

Excellent playback capabilities; lots of scene modes; large, versatile, high-resolution LCD.

No tripod socket; few manual controls; limited zoom range.

The Olympus IR-500 is a competent 4-megapixel camera with a limited zoom range, but its 2.5-inch high-resolution LCD and playback capabilities will make you want to tote it everywhere as a portable shoot-and-show display.
