Excerpt: I was thrilled when a friend gave me this Olympus FE 230! It's silver, fits in the palm of my hand and has great features found on more expensive cameras, like the LCD viewfinder. It's simple to operate, easy to carry in pocket or purse, and comes with good software. The only drawback is sending it out for repairs, which is easy if not cheap.
Excerpt: The Olymupus FE-230 is a great travel camera because it's compact and very easy to operate. I bring with me 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.
Summary: My Iphone 3GS has a pretty good camera - but no flash - so taking indoor pictures is not really an option. Was looking for a cheap solution and ran across this camera used for less than $20 on EBAY. It came with the box and all the original equipment. This is a super and light weight little camera. I just added a cheap 1 gig XD flash card and am taking great pictures.
Summary: Well I had this camera before and enjoyed its simplicity. I wanted to get the upgraded version which was not available for more mega pixels and zoom. This is a solid camera that is easy to use and fairly durable.
Summary: I've had this camera for 3 years now. Seems to be a mixed bag for most folks, but for me, this camera has been fantastic. I've taken it with me everywhere; backpacking through New Hampshire and Maine, skiing in Germany and Switzerland, and hunting throughout the Southeast. It takes fantastic pictures, for a point and shoot. It's not on par with my new Rebel T1i, but that's the difference $700 and an SLR will get you.
Summary: The camera is old and has most basic digital camera functions, but it has 7.1 MP and a sleek new camera look. It is really cheap since its old but not so old that it is bad. Great buy for the low price.
Summary: I like that the camera came with many of the accessories. such as the miniture tripod as well as the other things. Although the tripod was not the one pictured it will satisfy my son's needs as it was a birthday gift.
