Olymus FE-170 - Unfortunately Not The Best..
9 September 2012
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..
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.
Summary: The page I saw when I ordered this product DID NOT say the camera was "Reconditioned". For the price, I could have purchased a similar new camera. It was embarrasing to give a gift as "Reconditioned" and it was too late to order something else. The camera is much smaller than appears in photo, and for a 70 year old, who I bought it for... is very difficult to use because it's difficult to see any of the buttons, images, wording.
Summary: Every photo I've taken has been fuzzy and unclear.Also the color is not true. I know it's the camera as I have Sony camera that is near perfect. I can't wait to get rid of this piece of junk. Plus the Camedia software that came with this camera didn't work on my computer!
Summary: When I received my new Olympus Camera, I was so happy. I have used several Olympus cameras and have been very pleased in their performances. But, even though this camera took beautiful shots, the battery life was terrible. I had to use the LED display for the view finder since there was none included in this camera. I had to change and recharge the batteries 4 times to take images of one birthday party.
