Black blob has appeared on viewer screen of this NEW camera!

Diana Rabenold, Amazon
14 June 2010
  • Summary: Only weeks after receiving this camera, a black blob about 1/2 inch long and 1/4 inch wide has appeared on the inside of the viewing screen (meaning, it's not on the outside surface). It does appear on the print-outs, but it definitely interferes with the viewing, and I am fearful it may GROW LARGER! I did not drop the camera, or anything else untoward, to cause this: it just appeared one day. Would really like to have this camera replaced!

Broke down after 4 days

Pseudonym, Amazon
26 May 2010
  • Summary: I agree with all of the comments on battery life. More troublesome, however, is that the camera completely died after just 4 days, 10 pictures, and 3 battery changes... It will not respond or turn on, and the lens is stuck in the open position. The camera is a complete lemon.

Overstock

  • Summary: Camera screen has colored lines all over it making the camera useless as the screen is the view finder and you cant see what you are taking a picture of.of course it didn't do it untill just after the warranty expired.

Dont Buy it

Emmanuel M. Gugwor "Latifun", Amazon
10 August 2009
  • Summary: I'm 13 and so yea... I bought this camera at target because i wanted to upgrade from my out of date hp camera. It was on sale, so I thought it was a good buy. But the camera it self is terrible. The battery life is very poor, so you would have to get rechargables and the shutter button doesnt work properly. You have to hold it down for like, a minute until it actually takes the picture. Picture quality would probably be like, a C-.

Too many problems.

Amazon Shopper, Amazon
10 July 2009
  • Summary: I have owned this camera for over a year now. First - wow - what's with the huge price increase? I paid $110 in May of 08 and I couldn't recommend it at that price. It takes beautiful pictures - when it works correctly. One of the reasons we chose this model was because it used AA batteries available anywhere. 6 months into owning the camera it started draining normal AA batteries after about 6 pictures, sometimes less.

  • Summary: I know this is supposed to be a review about the performance of the camera, but I received it in a non working condition, and many parts were missing. I hope you don't have the same the same luck and I guess that to avoid it, it is better not to purchase items in this site.

Olympus FE310 TMS

T. Skaggs "RedThom", Amazon
16 May 2009
  • Summary: The camera had all the features I was looking for and was quite easy to use. However, when I attempted to download photos from it, I found that it was not possible because the camera caused a power surge in the USB port. The vendor I purchased the camera from was willing to replace it but they tried several others of the same model before shipping one of them to me and had the same exact result with each one. I would NOT recommend this camera to anyone.

Piece of Junk

Angry Customer, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • Summary: Batteries left in this camera simply do not retain a charge, even over night. Even when batteries were fresh, camera was good for 3 or 4 pictures before they were exhausted. Camera had to be returned to Olympus TWICE for repair. Focus was poor, colors were lousy. I WILL NEVER BUY OLYMPUS AGAIN!

Power Hungry

  • Summary: This camera consumes a set of AA batteries in just a few shots. It will drain fresh batteries overnight without taking any shots. Avoid this one.
