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.
Simple user interface and large LCD, but poor picture quality

Summary: Missing manual mode really hurts, the other automatic scene functions are no comparision to manually adjusting aperture and shutter speed. The worst is the picture quality, grainy, poor exposure..., it is worse than my other 5MP Olympus at HQ mode and definitely uses more memory. Well, its only usage is as a quick point & shoot and easy to carry camera which my wife can fit it in a purse. I will not carry this to any vacation.
Incredibly small with nice features, but incredibly fuzzy pics

Summary: Olympus used to make good-quality digital cameras, but their product lines in the last couple of years have been emphasizing the wrong set of features. The company tries to out-do the others by making tiny digital cameras -- the FE-230 is probably the smallest real digital camera I've seen -- you have to see it in person to believe it. It packs over 7 megapixels, a 3x optical zoom that also works in movie mode, and a number of useful shooting modes.
Summary: This camera really wowed me in the shop, great design, easy to use, large screen. The zoom is great and there is even a super macro mode for shooting small objects. But the pictures, regardless of setting, were really awful in my opinion. They are blurry and washed out. Other sites' reviews indicated similar issues. After about an hour of toying with it I decided to return it ASAP. I'd even eat a re-stocking fee I am so disappointed.
Summary: I purchased this camera for around $300 at Best Buy after all was said and done. I wanted it for landscape shots while hiking. I found that the images remained grainy or blurry no matter what I did. The size of the battery had me out of juice halfway into the Grand Canyon in a helicopter. What a disappointment. Regardless of whether you are in SHQ (super?) or HQ mode, the images were never clean or natural. The video capabilities on it work great!
Beautiful little camera - shame it can't take pictures !

Summary: Shame - Shame - Shame !!! I've used Olympus cameras for the past 30 years and up and till now have been pleased with each one I've owned but unfortunately this is not the case here. The camera is a bit of a babe magnet - it certainly doesn't scare the girls away by causing unsightly bulges in your trousers and when it's turned on only about 2 inches sticks out - the girls go "ooh" & "aah" & "isn't it little" then quickly strike a pose as it starts flashing in their...

Summary: La compré porque me parecio bonita, y me dijeron que era algo basico pero bueno. Noo señores, fue un error, las fotos salen borrosas, con granos, de noche me quedan con muchos granos y mal de luz. Para enfocar es lenta, y el zoom es muy malo, si no lo usas con tripode, te quedan todas borrosas. De 100 fotos que tomo, 80 me quedan borrosas, que camara tan mala, voy a ver si la devuelvo. Ah y la pila no le dura nada.
