Summary: This is nice and compact, but there is too long of a delay from the time you click to the time the picture actually takes. Most smart phone cameras are just as good as this. I have mine, but have considered tossing it in the trash, unfortunately.
Summary: I had an older D series Olympus, very good camera but bulky. So naturally, I went and bought this terd! Olympus has finally lost a loyal customer. Not that they care! No recalls either. I cant handle 2 recalls anyway, my Camry is being recalled too!
The Little Point-and-Shoot That Tried To Be Different (Not In a Good Way)

Summary: I was originally attracted to the FE-280 because it was A) an Olympus (I've had great success with Olympus digicams before) B) it was small so I could take it anywhere and C) because I tried it in store, and the macro mode was amazing (hard to find on ultra-compacts).
Summary: I bought this camera a year ago, replacing a previous Olympus (C5500) that had a 5x zoom and couldn't take a non-blurry picture to save it's life. It also took dark, grainy pictures with almost no low light capabilities and horrific shutter lag.
Summary: I got this camera as a gift. My 1st digital camera, I was still attached to film! I was reluctant to make the switch because I though I'll loose that "photographer eye" by clicking in every direction I wanted and not have the danger to run out of film.
Summary: I got this camera right before Christmas and it worked for about a week or two and then it broke. The shutter/zoom button broke and then you either couldn't take a picture or couldn't zoom in or out. I tried returning or exchanging it and was unable to.
Summary: The camera look great, small for 8MP. But the shutter speed too slow, slow enought to miss important moment. 5 out of the 10 pictures come out not satisfied. I bought this camera for one of the kids for Christmas and Casio S880 (also 8MP) for another Kid. The Casio cost more, but way much better.
Summary: In camera shopping, I was looking for a small camera that could easily fit into a small pack when sightseeing. Our other camera was a 5 MP Sony Mavica, and while it's still a great camera, it is big and bulky, and we were looking for something smaller.
Excerpt: Данному аппарату ставлю оценку 2, хорошо что вообще снимает. Если бы раньше разбиралась чуть лучше в них, ни за что бы не взяла. Уж лучше поднакопить и взять зеркальный, качество лучше.
Pros: Мой первый фотоаппарат, поэтому радости после покупки не было предела, но со временем поняла что фотик ужасный, качество фотографий оставляет желать лучшего. Единственный плюс довольно не плохая макросъемка. Больше сильных сторон не нашла! (Если только очень-очень постараться можно получить норма...
Cons: - Фотографии мутные, резкости никакой., -Цвета блеклые, приходится редактировать., - Шумы., - Видео ограничено по времени.
