Worst Olympus camera I have yet to use...

indiana2133, Ebay
2 August 2011
  • Summary: Avoid. The worst Olympus camera I've seen -- and most of the cameras are pretty good. Very slow when using flash, horrible quality when lighting is not ideal. No in-camera features like cropping or red-eye fix. Uses the old xD cards which are now expensive and hard to obtain. Battery life on AAs does appear to be very good. I can only reccomend this camera if you're getting it at a great price and going to use it almost exclusively for outdoor daytime shots...

Olympus FE-310 camera

Overstock
30 November 2009
  • 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.

"Eats batteries alive!!!!"

frenchburg51, CNET

  • Pros: I'm putting it on Craig's List.
  • Cons: Pictures can be grainy. Slow shutter in between flashes, sometimes shuts down. Delay in time you press shutter & picture is taken.

Not happy with it

Overstock
21 July 2009
  • Summary: It has nice features, but I have a list of complaints; First it deleted all of my photos because you must first formatt the XD card before you use it. Second, you can't use your cards from your old digital camera. Only special Olympus cards. Third, the week my 3 month warranty expired it did not reconize my expensive recommended rechargeble batteries and Olympus wants to charge me $65 to repair it. I am done with this camera.

  • 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.

You get what you pay for

Wilma "Wilma", Amazon
20 January 2009
  • Summary: Bought this little inexpensive thing to tote around until I decide what camera I really want. Easy to use. Took a few nice still shots and close ups with it. Others have already said it: it devours batteries!!! It happened a few times now, that I couldn't take a precious snap shot because the battery was empty :-( Forget rechargeable batteries, they are not strong enough. And who wants to keep spending money on Duracell & Co?

Battery life is no good

M. A. Stuart, Amazon
5 December 2008
  • Summary: I've had one of these for 4 months now and I want to echo the negative comments here about the battery life as it sucks. It's amazing how little it lasts. Everything else is OK... I get plenty of blurry one's, but that may be me as I've had that issue with all my digital cams. Also, there is no small view finder, only the big one, but that's not really an issue for me as I'm just amateur with photos and only use that one anyway. Just how bad is the battery life?

ok

  • Summary: I do not say the product is not good. Just I do not like it because it is too thick in shape and I do not like to change batteries too much.
