If I had an enemy, I'd give them my Olympus FE-230

M. Baker "classiccruiserrolling", Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: This camera often makes me want to throw it against the wall. First of all, the battery it came with would hold a charge for about 10 minutes. So I had to buy a new battery for about $50.

The worst digital camera I had so far

Vladimir Khaymovich, Amazon
25 May 2011
  • 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.

Ultra compact, but poor quality

JDH, Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: Like many of the people who gave this camera poor reviews, I always had trouble with blurry photos using this camera. I've had the camera for about a year and I've never been impressed by it. I kept it around because it was tiny (the size is really remarkable) and could easily be taken anywhere.

Disappointed

Katrina M "Katrina M", Amazon
11 January 2009
  • Summary: I thought for a long time that it was just me... that I took awful shots. I tried my best, different settings, etc, but the photos just came out dull, blurry, and lacking in color. I eventually bought a Canon powershot SD1100 and was truly amazed at the huge difference in photos!

Six month Life

M. Whitworth, Amazon
15 June 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this camera in October and by May it no longer takes colored pictures. There is little to no help from the Olympus customer service team. My only option is to mail it to them for a fee to evaluate. Very disappointed with quality of Olympus product.

Defective camera

R. Laplante, Amazon
2 May 2008
  • Summary: I have to admit, I like the feel of this camera. Light weight and compact. The camera is defective though. Every so often the pictures get lines across them and light leaves trails. It will stay this way for 4-5 days then it is fine again. Basically every time I really need it for business.

Small camera, fuzzy pictures

Ikamp, Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: If you are serious about buying this camera, you should head other posters advise about picture quality. This camera takes the occasional quality picture, but for the most part, pictures are fuzzy and or overexposed. The size is nice (small) and its quite stylish.

Camera-phone level image quality

rjt, Amazon
29 December 2007
  • Summary: I was helping my dad shop for a camera for my mom, and though I had strong preferences for small digital cameras (Canon Elph series, Panasonic Lumix series), I assumed that with his "under $200" price limit, they would basically be interchangeable.

Camera does not hold up well!!!

Christopher Werner, Amazon
5 December 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this camera for a trip in May, 2007. I immediately noticed after the trip that my wife's 5mp Kodak took a better picture. I then went on another trip in Oct 2007 and the LCD screen cracked the first day. I never dropped it or was rough.
