Okay Camera For The Price

Donna, Amazon

  • Summary: I say just okay because as I didn’t pay that much for the camera the lens kept getting stuck when turning the camera on and off. I called the company to return it, but it would have cost almost as much as the camera did, so I decided to keep it and shop around for another camera. Could of just been a defect.

Good until you hit the beach

  • Summary: This is the 2nd time I bought this camera and the 2nd time I got sand in the lens and it never worked again. Its not like I left it on the beach in the sand. This was just in my purse and some sand must have got in there somehow. Honeymoon photos were immediately not an option. I'm pretty sure the lens system is cheap and breaks easily. Don't buy if you will ever take it outdoors.

My little play camera

  • Excerpt: My wedding present from a friend has allowed me to store a lot of fond memories on this small camera. For a mini camera, this works just like a professional camera. I love the different things you can do with it. Although it has many different features which is confusing to me, but if you set it on basics, it works well. I don't understand the size features on the photos since I cannot tell the difference on how they come out.

Okay for the price

  • Excerpt: My wife wanted a new camera to replace her old HP digital camera, 5.1 MP. She picked this camera because it had a higher MP rate, and it was not silver. The LCD screen on the camera is bigger and that is nice. I also got her a 2 GB card to go with the camera since onboard memory holds about 4 pictures. The ifrst place she took it was to a school play. The zoom on the camera is good, but without a tri-pod almost all zoomed pictures seem to be blurry.

A great camera for carrying everywhere

  • Excerpt: We got this Olympus FE-20 to replace another Olympus digital camera that was no longer compatible with our laptop.  At first I wasn't sure I would like it because it was so different from the previous camera, but now I love it.  It takes great photos and has many options for lighting, etc.  The screen is actually much bigger than the screen on our previous (larger) camera.

The FE-20 is the best staple camera I've found

  • Excerpt: I remember a few years ago when my mom got a bird in her craw and decided she was going to be a cool amateur photographer so she went out and bought a huge camera with lots of buttons and settings and filters and junk. She promptly proceeded to bring all vacation photos to a halt while she tried (and failed) to figure that camera out. THIS camera, the Olympus FE-20, is the total opposite of that.

Excellent camera

  • Summary: This is the second of this model I have purchased. The first one died a violent death, and I missed it so much I ordered another. It uses the XD card, the same as my FUJI SLR, so I can switch cards. It is easy to use, and fits in your pocket. The only down side is the lag time. Don't expect to catch a runner in mid-stride. By the time it finally takes the photo, he or she will be two steps down the track.

Will get a different camera

Linda, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera does take nice pictures and it is great when traveling because it fits in a pocket. BUT, the battery life is horrible. Whether I use OEM batteries or generic, it is the same. You get a very short battery life, it seems that if the battery is in the camera even with the camera off, the battery life is being used. I have 4 batteries with me at all times and it is not enough for a day of sightseeing. I will be purchasing a different pocket camera.
