  • 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 .

Great camera, but....

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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: 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.

Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

  • Summary: Great camera, easy to use, nice pictures. However, the AA batteries that it uses last about an hour. I don't think this is normal. I've had the camera for 2 weeks and have had to change batteries 4 times already. That can get costly!

  • Summary: While planning a vacation I ordered the Olympus camera and then my departure date was moved up two days so, I purchased another brand of camera for the trip. After using the Olympus and comparing it with the one used on vacation.....the Olympus won every category.... shutter down.

A great camera

  • Summary: This camera is wonderful! The discount I got was amazing and it takes pretty darn good pictures. I think the time from pushing the button to the actual taking of the photo could be quicker but other than that this is a worth while investment. I highly recommend this camera.

  • Summary: I love the camera - it's great. The no shake feature is really good. The accessory kit is ok, but the tripod is rather flimsy.
