Summary: I am so stupid for not getting a new camera. I've ruined so many vacation photos with this Olympus. Sent it in to be fixed = still fuzzy. My friend liked it when I got it = now she has fuzzy photos too! Sorry, DON'T BUY OLYMPUS! Something is wrong with the autofocus.
Summary: I thought maybe my daughter was just a little too rough with this camera, but after reading other reviews and looking on auction sites to see how many other folks were unloading this camera "AS-IS", I now know that is not the case.
Summary: My first Olympus FE 280 died after a year in the same way that other reviewers have noted on this site. Since I had all the extras for this camera, I bought a refurbished one with a 90 day warranty from Olympus. It died in exactly the same way after 4 months of light use.
Summary: Very, very disappointed with this camera. Most of the pictures are blurry. Olympus Master software leaves much to be desired. Have had this camera for over a year now and have not been able to figure out how to capture good pictures. Supposedly, this is a point & shoot!
Summary: For some reason electronic gifts that I bought Christmas of '07 decided to stop working exactly one year later. This camera is one of them. It just went haywire. That's the only way to describe it. It won't focus.
Summary: I got this camera because I have an older Olympus that takes excellent photos. I was terribly disappointed in the photo quality. Night photos in regular room light are poorly exposed and about half are blurry. The flash is too close to the lens, which may be part of the problem.
Summary: I got this one on a trip to replace the Olympus 770SW after smashing that one (700 foot drop) by accident. Needless to say the 770SW took FAR better photos even after being smashed(I'm serious) than the FE280 ever did.
Excerpt: Покупалось в спешке перед последним звонком чтобы заснять памятные моменты, поэтому даже не разобралась ни в чем, да уже и в первые минуты не порадовал... Покупала за 5 с небольшим... Кодак в 12Мп можно купить за 3 тысячи и он даже намного качественее... А тут 8Мп и такое, простите меня подсунули...
Pros: Неплохая менюшка для такого ужасного фотоаппарата.
Cons: С корпуса слезает краска на 2 день после покупки, купила уже немного облезший;
; резиновые заглушки не хотят вставать на свое место ни под каким предлогом, топорщатся в разные стороны;
; экран отвратный, зернится ужасно, просто неприятно смотреть на него;
; качество снимков - просто плеваться охо...
