Conclusion: If you *thought* of saving a few more bucks by going for the FE3010, I’d advise you to rethink your decision. The Olympus FE3010 is more than just a 3X zoom version of the FE5010 (which has a 5X lens), it’s a huge step down in many ways.
Pros: Easy to use; Intelligent Auto picks a scene mode for you, 2.7 inch LCD with good visibility, Perfect Shot Preview and in-camera help tooltips
Cons: No manual controls, Crummy battery life, No real image stabilization, Soft, noise images; lots of color fringing, No burst mode, So-so movie mode, memory card requirement, Below average low-light focusing
Excerpt: La fotocamera digitale Olympus FE-3010 racchiude in un corpo compatto e colorato un sensore CCD da 12 megapixel di risoluzione, che permette di ottenere fotografie con una risoluzione massima di 3968x2976 pixel.
