The Olympus FE-170 takes amazing clear photos with little effort
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I have owned the Olympus FE-170 for about 3 years now, and I love this camera. It takes very clear photos with very little effort on the photographer's part. The Olympus FE-170 has multiple settings available for taking pictures in auditoriums, taking up close photos, minimizing red-eye, action shots, etc. You can even shoot very short videos with this camera!
Excerpt: I bought this camera for my husband and he loves it. He doesn't take many photos and when he did he used a one time use camera and rarely got it developed. I got tired of having all of these sitting around getting lost or taking a bunch of pictures we didn't really need just to finish the roll. It is so nice to be able to have something small to carry with him, plus we can download them immediately onto the computer, or take to a kiosk and have them printed without...
Excerpt: I have owned two Olympus digital cameras over the years. The FE-170 is small and inexpensive. It is easy to use and delivers very good pictures. It is a rugged camera and survived a car wreck with me. It takes great close-up pictures, and the digital zoom is excellent.
Excerpt: You have to hold the button down for several seconds before it takes a picture and it does use battery power quickly, but this is a pretty good little camera. Simple to use and takes wonderful, clear pictures. Lots of settings for inside, outdoors, sports, even for auctions and behind glass. Uses 2 AA batteries (Olympus recommends rechargeable). Batteries die quickly if you leave them in the camera when you are not using it.
Excerpt: The olympus fe 170 is a great camera for outdoors, indoors you can take pictures too but due to the limited iso flash is needed to light the scene and offcourse the range is limited. For those that hate video it is good to know that you do not record sounds with this camera and resolution is limited to 320*240 and with a 256 mb xd card you can shoot 13 minutes of video .
Excerpt: The Olympus FE-179 is a great camera with many picture options, perhaps to many. There are some downsides:1. The LCD is worthless in sun light. Using the view find in combination with the zoom will leave you taking a picture of something different than what you see.2. The battery is a not a standard battery and you will need an Olympus charger to charge it. Unless you have a spare battery your picture taking will end when the battery dies.3. Before you use this...
Excerpt: We purchased our Olympus FE-170 camera for about 3 years - as an additional camera to our Kodak EasyShare CS7330. The description of the Olympus made us believe it would provide better photos than the Kodak.. We were wrong.. I am not an expert photographer, but have 6 grandkids in lots of events that I try to catch pics of all the time - so I've had lots of practice.
Excerpt: I was tired of being at events, or seeing things I've wanted to photograph and get a print-quality image at the end of the day and having to rely solely on my Blackberry to deliver the goods. I decided that I needed a simple, point and click digital camera that could still produce a high-quality image.
