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. If you are considering this camera for just taking with you on an outing or vacation, there are much better cameras out there with better resolution and higher pixel count.
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. Would recommend a new one but start away from the less the new.
Summary: My wife had one before, left it in the rain and killed it. She has purchased other cameras that didn't catch the action, were too hard to understand, too big or did not have enough battery life. This particular camera is it. Solves all those problems for her. I will buy a 2nd one just in case she looses this one.
Excerpt: I bought the Olympus FE-230 about 3 years ago, without doing much research on it. I find it to be a good camera for day to day picture taking but it lacks certain key elements which prevent it from excelling in it's field. For taking pictures of landscapes and scenery this camera excels giving you high quality images fit for your wallpaper.
Convenient & compact, takes great pics in good lighting

Excerpt: My Olymupus FE-230 is a great travel camera because it's compact and very easy to operate. I keep it in my purse and bring with me just about everywhere I go. It has a fairly decent zoom, but I would prefer something with better zoom options. Also I noticed the red eye reduction does not always work. For the most part, though, the pictures are clear and crisp. The only time I have noticed blurry pictures is when I have zoomed in too far or the lighting is too dark.
The Olympus FE-230 Digital Cam is one of the lightest out there

Excerpt: The olympus FE-230 Digital cam, has gone everywhere with me. I love how it has all the features that a bigger cam has. Especially the settings, and underwater features. It is versitale and light weight. And can do the same as a quick shot cam. Love it!! The price wasn't that bad either. I highly recommend it to any other consumer out there who is looking for a great digital camera, that also charges quickly. The battery life is amazing too.
Excerpt: I bought this camera originally to replace a lost Olympus camera that was used for travel and family photos. I shopped for price but I also wanted to keep my same data port and memory chips. I found the FE230 on sale at a chain electronics store. After charging the battery I was ready to shoot. The main menu is very easy to read. It allows you to shoot pictures in color or black and white, panoramic view, action shots, video, zoom, outdoors, and in special situations.
Excerpt: This camera is wonderful! I received it for Mother's Day and have it with me always. It is small enough to carry in a small purse or even a pocket. The battery life is very long and it comes with a rechargeable one so that saves lots of money :) The Olympus software that comes with the camera is just as easy to use and as fun as the camera is. And the LCD screen is 2.5". Very nice to view images on.
