One of view cameras to take 2 in 1 photos

  • Summary: Olympus always changes with newer camera models, and make it too complicated for the average picture taker. They should grab a lady of the street and ask her what she likes. All point and shoot cameras do not stop or work on simple action photos, like a grandson game or even a dog walking, they are good for posed photo.

'Entry Level' or not it's still going strong...

  • Excerpt: Introduction With smartphone technology making improvements and advancements in recent times I've found myself using my phone and it's features as a replacement for other items that I own. I no longer need my iPod Nano as my phone has an iPod incorporated into it and similarly my digital camera has been relegated to a drawer for safe keeping as any snaps I want to take can be captured on my all singing-all dancing iPhone 4.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Reliable, Instinctive controls and functions, Price now
  • Cons: Build Quality is a little flimsy, Probably wouldn't suit the more keen photographer

OLYMPUS FE-120 6.0 MEGAPIXEL DIGITAL CAMERA

1441marti..., Ciao
12 April 2009
  • Excerpt: I picked this camera up for not a lot of money from PC World for my daughter to take on a month long adventure trip to Brazil, thinking that it would probabl;y last the trip but not much longer. How wrong could I be! It has remained as the family camera now for a couple of years and is as good as new. It has a good solid feel about it and all the buttons and controls appear well engineered and robust.
  • Pros: Robust, sinple to use
  • Cons: Not much memory and high battery usage

Good for the price, but don;t expect much

  • Summary: As a point and shoot camera the Olympus FE 120 is fine. The picture quality of very good and some of the automatic seetings are quite good. There isn't much you can do manually though. The only major gripe I have about this camera is shutter lag. Its not great for action shots but panoramic holiday photos are good. Its quite small as well so is great for nights out and peforms satisfactorily in low light. Its worth it for the price.

Olympus FE-120 6.0 megapixel Review

geoman50, Ciao
2 September 2006
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera on impulse at PC World to be able to send pictures of my children to the in-laws in Poland; however, it has been commandeered by my 8-year old daughter. The success she has enjoyed with it is testimony to the ease with which the camera may be used. She manipulates the telephoto function to get the best shot and studies the screen on the back of the camera to make sure she's got everything in (no decapitated posers or bicrural amputees).
  • Pros: Easy to use, compact, clear pictures
  • Cons: Uses up batteries like there's no tomorrow; screen hard to see in bright sunlight

Olympus FE-120 review

bengewort..., Ciao
5 June 2006
  • Excerpt: I received this as a birthday present, chosen for its optical zoom and 6 mega pixel facilities which give excellent photos. It comes with software and leads, and a small memory card. It is so easy to use that I haven't really had to refer to the manual at all; put the batterys in, switch on, point and go! Optical zoom of up to 3x is great for family pictures and leisure use. Also has digital zoom facility.
  • Pros: Quick and Easy to use  -  great for a novice
  • Cons: needed to buy a larger memory card, battery life isn't great .

lots of great features

  • Excerpt: I purchased this earlier this year and have been very happy with it since. The impressive 6.0 megapixel lens delivers great quality snaps which are especially impressive in close-up mode (which allows photographs as close as about half an inch away!). Its many features allow you to be creative. The best features in my opinion are; the close up mode, video capture and panorama mode.
  • Pros: High definition pics, very appealing and easy to use software and many features
  • Cons: Expensive memory cards and can become slow on low battery

A neat little camera for new digital users

"doctor_tony", Amazon
21 December 2005
  • Summary: I got the camera going in next to no time; it takes standard AA batteries (supplied). Oddly, the quick guide omits to tell you how to put the memory card into the camera. I've only had the camera a few days so some other quirks may become apparent later. There is a comprehensive user guide on CD-ROM. A cable is used to connect the camera via USB to your PC, and there's software to enable the transfer of pictures.
