Olympus FE-120 Digital Camera

4 December 2006

Expert Review

30 April 2006
  • Excerpt: When you think that plenty of D-SLR cameras only offer 6Mp resolution, it's quite something that you can get the same number of pixels out of a £120 compact camera.

Olympus FE-120

8 August 2014
  • Conclusion: Entry level digital cameras with six megapixels are few and far between. Before you think you have struck gold with the Olympus FE-120 it will pay you to think again. Even allowing for its low price I have tested other entry level models offering much better picture quality and value for money.
  • Pros: Six megapixels, Ease of use, Low price
  • Cons: Picture quality, Shutter lag, Battery hungry

  • Summary: Conclusion : The Olympus FE-120 / X700 is a compact 6 megapixel digital camera with a 3x optical zoom lens and is excellent value for money, however, even more impressive is that the camera produces good to very good results, with good quality pictures with good colour and detail. The camera is consistantly able to focus, even in low-light although slow focusing may put some people off - the high success rate should compensate for the delays.
  • Pros: Impressive image quality for the price, Excellent value for money, Excellent super macro mode, 2 year warranty, Focuses well in low-light (albeit slowly), Very easy to use, Takes AA / CR-V3 batteries - good battery life with high power ni-mh rechargable batteries, High speed continuous shooting (at roughly 1.3fps), Lots of scene modes
  • Cons: Videos lack sound, Lacks advanced controls (lacks custom white balance, ISO settings, etc), Slow playback mode, Slow focusing

Olympus FE-120

22 October 2005
  • Excerpt: 1. Opis Ne dolgo časa nazaj smo na Slo-foto objavili novico o prihodu novih kompaktnih aparatov podjetja Olympus, kateri jih je najavil 29. avgusta. Ni trajalo dolgo in že smo dobili prvi primerek kompakta, ki nosi ime FE-120. Poleg FE-120 pa je Oylmpus najavil še dva modela v tem razredu in sicer modela FE-100 in FE-110. Kot smo vajenih pri ostalih znamkah je razlika med njimi samo v številu točk na tipalu in še nekaj malo malenkosti. Pri modelih FE pa to ni tako.
