Olympus top-notch optical quality, as usual
26 June 2012
Summary: Ok, this was an inexpensive digital camera, purchased new in 2006. It has taken some absolutely fantastic photographs, far beyond what can be expected in this price range. Finally just replaced it six years later with an Olympus VR-330, for no good reason other than the new model was on sale.
Excerpt: As far as 6 megapixel digital camera’s go this is the epitome of a no frills point and shoot. For $145.00 the FE-170 is barely up to standard with my LG Verizon phone picture quality. And that is akin to a kid coloring a picture on notebook paper with …
Summary: I can honestly say that this camera has served me well for the past 3.5 years. It was my first digital camera and has captured many memories for me. It does an excellent job with outdoor photos, however indoor photo quality is often grainy, blurry, or strangely colored.
Summary: One thing that bothers me the most with this camera... is that when in video mode, the video takes no sound!!! Similar models from Canon offer digital cameras that record sound; therefore, I cannot recommend this product at all.

Summary: My problems with this camera started to happen after six months. The retractable lens started to get jammed. Now the camera will come on then shut off with the lens still out. This camera is a piece of junk and I would never recommend it to anyone.

Excerpt: I have been beyond pleased with my Olympus FE-170. It is a 6.0 Megapixel. Taking pictures is fun and super easy with it. The viewing screen is large almost 2 inches and you can easily see the pictures you are taking and have taken. If you set it on …
Summary: This Camera is a grate little Camera. That is right little it is perhaps the size of a pack of cigaretts. But Wow what grate pictures you can take with it. When I bought mine I was very impressed with it, So much that when a friend of mine was looking to purchase a Digital Camera I bought them one...
