Summary: I only paid $19.95 for this Camera , (refurbished), and bought a 2 gigabyte Olympus SD card for another $19.95 , so for around $ 40.00 +/- I got an awesome camera with over 5800 possible pictures & the camera comes with the software used to download photos, and the camera has zoom , and other features too numerous to mention !!
Excerpt: The FE-310 and or the FE-0340 are great small cameras. They take great pictures have movie function and the window is showing exactly what the picture will show. Has lot of choices but is very easy to start using and can be used by people of all ages.
Excerpt: HAD THIS FOR A WHILE AND IT IS MY FAVORITE CAMERA. IT WAS A GREAT PRICE AND FOR A LITTLE CAMERA TAKES PICTURES AS WELL AS MY NIKON D 40. IT HAS A WIDE AND TELESCOPIC .LENS. AT 8.0 MP IT TAKES CLEAR AND CRISP PICTURES. SMALL AND EASY TO CARRY . SIMPLE TO DOWNLOAD PICTURES AND MOVIES.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace same camera of older vintage which was run over by a car (that's another long story for another time). I sought out and bought this one because I was so pleased with the performance and size of the original. One of the features I had purchased the first one for was a setting specifically for taking photos of items for eBay. That is one of the many "standard" settings on this camera and it really is worth having.
Summary: This is my 2nd Olympus digital. I wanted something I could slip in a pocket, rather than hang around my neck all day. It's not too small for my sausage fingers, all I need to take fast, easy photos. The 310 is hard on batteries, I keep 2 sets of re-chargeables spare,but would carry more on a big trip. That is my only real criticism. Since I wrote this review 4 months back I have got a little more skilled and a little less enthusiastic for the FE-310.
Summary: I had read that the Olympus 2 Master disc was difficult to install, but, that is not true. It went in like a champ, and gives you everything you'd want to create your photos with. The Macro and Super Macro work excellent! The sntishake mechanism keep down alot of otherwise blurry shots. I haven't yet tried the panorama feature, but everything is explained clearly in the book, and just taking your camera and going thru step-by-step, you will see how easy it is to use!!
Summary: Olympus FE-310 8MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom (Black) This camera is one of the best digital cameras I have ever used. It takes easy perfect Photos, and what you see is what you get. It has a menu that even a novice could use. It is really that easy. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who,in the past was afraid. A great product!
Summary: Well I did a lot of homework before I bought this camera. I wanted AA batteries (I travel a lot with no outlets), at least a 5X zoom and some sort of image stabilization. The 2 gig card gives over 400 pics on the highest resolution so no worrys about downloading often on the go. The image stabilization is not active, what it does is ups your shutter speed so it's not really image stabilized.
