Summary: camera took three weeks to arrive. front of camera all scratched up looked like it had been slid on the pavement ,also the battery door seems loose witch worries us. wished we had just spent the extra money for a new one insted of buying used.
Excerpt: It was unfortunate that I bought this camera... It started working OK and I was impressed with the quality of the pictures. Then I went to Acapulco... Humid weather and it just died. The screen turns on a white light... Read the instructions and they recommended to leave it in a dry place for a while and would work again.... well, I am still waiting. It has been a year!
Summary: I really should have rated this camera "0" stars. First of all, there is a big lag time between the moment you press the shutter and the time that it takes a picture. Secondly, unless you use the stabilization feature, your pictures are almost always gonna come out blurry. The stabilization feature makes the pictures come out grainy. Please don't make the same mistake that I made.
Summary: I bought this camera because i lost my previous one. my friend recommended that I buy a 6 mp camera or higher so when i saw this one at the store I got it.what I hate the most is the fact that it does not record audio with your videos I mean that's the most ridiculous thing ever!! I paid around 130 or so for this thing and I am regretting it.
Summary: This camera has no audio so every video that I've recorded has NO SOUND!!! That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard (NO PUN INTENDED!). What's the point of having the movie feature if there's no microphone to record the sound??!! I recorded my daughter's 3 rd birthday and I'm absolutely upset that there is no way for me to recapture any of those moments. Buy a different camera.
Summary: As many others have said, this model and several other Olympus cameras have a problem that renders it unusable. I had the typical "Battery Empty" problem. I contacted Olympus service, downloaded an "update" , then the camera quit entirely. The next step is send it in. With no warranty it is not worth any repair charge. Customer service left a lot to be desired as well. With plenty of other choices this camera/brand is not recommended.
Summary: At first I was happy with this camera...decent (not amazing) picture quality, easy-to-operate, mediocre features (can't take a good shot when it's dark out, or move the camera too much when taking photos)...but I noticed that the batteries drained super quick. Now the problem has gotten worse, and newly charged batteries die within a few hours (or even immediately at times), and the camera says "battery dead" and won't turn on.
Summary: This camera has a "battery empty" problem. It doesn't matter how many new batteries you buy, it will continue giving the same message. I bought the camera because of the brand, but this is the last Olympus camera I will ever buy.
Summary: Bought and returned FE-210 today...after 2 sets of tested good NiMH batteries kicked up "Battery empty" error messages. A quick Google search showed problem is ubiquitous. This will be my last Olympus.
