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: Poor.Image washed out.no recorded sound on video mode. Problems: Lots of noise,biggest problem is that when shooting video there was no recorded sound..this camera is made to take pictures ,not videos.Got rid of it and got a sony DSC-W70...Great camera
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.
Summary: I've been very happy with Olympus products and bought this camera to replace my older Olympus D-580 (great camera, by the way) and was dissapointed from the moment I took the first picture. Both indoor and outdoor pictures come out in blueish-greyish tones.
Excerpt: I'm amazed.... This is a Poor camera and not a patch on my 3 yr old Canon Powershot 3.2Mp. Image quality is very noisy, the shutter is stupidly slow, the flash is poor in range, the colour balance when indoors and no flash is far to saturated. In short, I agree with the previous opinion.
Summary: My husband and I decided to upgrade from a 2mp to a 6mp digital camera this year for Christmas. Our old camera was an olympus that we had bought simply because the price was right. After 4 years, it had survived much abuse so we decided to go with olympus again.

Summary: Baught this camera thinking that it would be identical to the photo provided on amazon.Later on i found out that unlike the camera that my friend had this camera was smaller and a cheap reproduction from china,didn't look durable at all.Since the return policy highlighted the importence of keeping...
Summary: I bought this camera in a pinch when the refurbished Fuji I bought for an important weekend crapped out within hours. The FE-170 is a decent camera, but I expected a lot more. The pictures seem saturated to me, with a kind of blue-pink rosy hue.
