Love it

  • 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.

Very Good Camera

Amazon Customer "reader", Amazon

  • Summary: Very good camera for quick easy use. Photo quality is excellent, size is excellent. Speed is good--not a DSLR, but for the price, the best there is. The best camera for the price.

  • Excerpt: Just bought this Olympus and it takes very good pictures. Not like the E330 or E510 I also have but just a little adjustment in Elements and you can't tell the difference from the E330 or E510 or even a Panasonic DMC-L1K!!!!!

  • Excerpt: After many weeks of research on this site and at the local camera shop I made the plunge. I bought it for 179.99 plus tax. It is amazing! Granted we were upgrading from a four-year-old HP. This camera is very easy to use and you can be up and shooting in no time at all!!

  • Excerpt: I have a Olympus FE-230 digital camera. Its a 7.1 mega pixel camera and its zoom capacity is 4x optical and one more 1 x digital zoom. The camera's picture quality is awesome. It captures the pictures in natural colours.

  • Excerpt: Yes, it is true and I will be the first to admit it.... I am a flasher! I have been flashing for a while now and this little gadget is making it easier to do so in so many more places! What? What? You didn't think that I... Oh my, perhaps I phrased my opening statement incorrectly!!

Taking photographs whenever and wherever

eam88, Ciao

  • Excerpt: I received this camera as a Christmas present from my Mum and Dad and have been absolutely delighted with it. I takes very clear pictures and the automatic focussing and flash is great for someone, like me, who is not great at photography.
  • Pros: Light, compact, easy to use, brilliant quality of pictures and diversity of functions
  • Cons: can be a slight time delay for pictures to take

Exceptional Quality

  • Summary: I've had this camera for several months now and I have been hugely impressed by it. Considering the low price the image quality is exceptional, it also records very good quality videos for a compact camera.

The Picture Perfect Camera!

  • Excerpt: I chose this camera initially because of the weight. I looked around at different cameras in the below £150 section on a nuber of websites, paying particular attention to John Lewis (one of my favourite stores), and this one was simply the lightest.
  • Pros: 7 . 1mp, small, light, fab looking, great functions, amazing camera !
  • Cons: small time delay, pricey XD cards  -  but I'm nit picking !
