Long delay

PAScott, Amazon
30 March 2014
  • 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.

First Olympus, probably my last

  • Excerpt: I bought this Olympus at Costco a while back for around $120, it was the cheapest price for the most megapixels and although I'd never used Olympus before, I decided to give it a shot. It came with an Olympus xD card. I found that very weird as I'd never heard of it and my computer didn't have a slot for it. Luckily, they included a micro sd to xD adapter.

My last Olympus

S. Rayasa, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • 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! Anyway, getting back to the Camera, I really liked the size and its movie capability and its Battery life. All great qualities if it worked for a while! Pictures were ok, not as good as my older camera, but close enough.

Tired of Being Frustrated

K. Nelson, Amazon
1 June 2009
  • 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. I spent a lot of $$ on that camera and wasn't going to take another chance like that, especially after all my friends took great pictures with their cheaper ones.

Olympus FE280 - Not recommended

L. A. Dias, Amazon
2 December 2008
  • 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. But I kinda of changed my mind after using a digital camera and seeing the fairly good printed copies.

Olympus -FE -280 digital camera

hppy2b, Viewpoints
7 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Olympus Camera is ok except when you buy it you can only take three pictures unless you buy a memory card, because it doesnt come with one even though i paid 130 dollars. And it doesn't have a charger you have to use batteries and they last for a while until you have used your camera awhile. Its pc friendly. Mine only lasted about 6 months and then the battery contacts were not getting contact for the battery to work!!

Olympus Stylus FE-280 Digital Camera

H.Brink, Rate it all!
15 June 2008
  • 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. Now I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to deal with the Olympus warranty.

Slow Shutter Speed

Oceaner "Stealth", Amazon
27 January 2008
  • 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.

Poor People Skills

Erin, Amazon
28 November 2007
  • 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. On the advice of someone who said the two brands with the best picture quality were Canon and Olympus, I bought the Olympus FE-280.
