Summary: I purchased this camera to use with an underwater housing. The camera is OK, not the greatest, but does the job. I have several other cameras, which take a far better picture, but do not have underwater housings.
Summary: Not to happy there was dirty photos and moves on camera when I turned it on. As soon as i opened it. I am just glad my kids where nt home when this happened. I know I bought it used but please no one wants a porn show with a purchase. Or at least I didnt.
Summary: I ordered this to replace my lost one and was very disappointed. The Camera worked for a couple of days then started messing up. I through if out. I would buy a new one but I am weighting this opinion over. It does takes geat pic's and movies. Easy to use. I had a new one and lost it overseas.
Summary: I had 2 Olympus digital cameras before I purchased this pocket size one. I was very happy with Olympus product so I purchased the Olympus FE-230. The battery life lasts only for 3 to 4 initial shots, then if I turn it off and within few minutes need to do another shot - the camera would not turn.
What's with all the negativity? I'd recommend to EVERYONE!

Summary: I'm very surprised by the negative reviews. I took this camera all over the world--literally! I was doing field research on biological reserves in Costa Rica, ie. NO electricity. The camera last the full 16 days I was there.
Summary: The item I purchased was never received. Followed up with seller after proposed arrival date came and went letting him know I would be requesting a refund. Refund received immediately. No idea what happened to product.
Summary: My mom really likes Olympus, so figured I'd get her this one and she really loves it. Only downside any of us have found with it is it will only take 15 second video clips on the 640x480 setting. It will run till the battery or XD card is full on 320x240, but quality really suffers in that mode.
