Hi Jean:You have a great little camera! I have an older Olympus 450Z. 
The very best advise I can give you is to have the camera in hand and 
the book open. Learn the very basics. . that the card is in, that the 
batteries are good, how to open the lense and where the button to 
take the picture is. Once that's understood, go take some pictures of 
anything. . and view them. Once you do that, then read some more and 
experiment. Learn how to erase and format. . learn how to zoom in and 
out. Honest, it's not difficult if you break it down into pieces. 
Rather like eating an elephant. . you know, "one bite at a time." One 
of the most wonderful features of a digital is that you are not 
wasting film so just get out there and take pictures. Practice, 
evaluate what you've taken, learn from your mistakes. Oh, and don't 
take it all so seriously. . have fun learning and don't be hard on 
yourself. It'll all fall into place!!
