Olympus Stylus 410-great camera despite CNET review.

I have had this camera all summer it is great. Pictures were good, Long battery life and above all durabilty has been great. I was at the beach all summer and the stylus fought off all that inevitable sand.
My Canon Elph 210 is a wimp by comparison.
I haven't seen any justification for the mediocre review by CNET.

I read the CNET review.

I read the review and was surprised to see that the reviewer kept denigrating the camera because it did not have certain manual override controls.

The 410 is a point-and-shoot camera and the reviewer wants it to be something it isn't.

The scoring system the reviewer uses is detrimental to point-and-shoot cameras and presents an unfair bias for certain cameras.

I am very disappointed with the reviewer(s), whoever they are.

Did you notice the reviews presented by the owners of the camera. They did not support the CNET reviewers conclusions at all.

yes, it's like they had a prejudice that needed justifcation

I didn't agree with the review and went nervously ahead with the purchase. I am glad that I did. After 6 months of heavy use this camera is great.

What made me speak out is this weeks front page article that points to the Stylus 410 as a camera NOT to Buy.
