Conclusion: The Olympus FE340 is a simple 8 megapixel camera for casual point-and-shoot purposes. The camera is powered by a lithium-ion battery (thus the thin design) and packs more zoom than you'll typically find on a camera like this.
Pros: Compact design available in five colors and above average 5X zoom, Easy to use - few buttons and built-in help, LCD viewable in various conditions (Especially with backlight boost), Perfect Shot Preview, Hands-free smile detection automatically snaps smiles, Useful editing functions in playback, ...
Cons: No manual controls at all, Lacks 'real' image stabilization, Below average battery life, Burst mode is missing, Slow overall performance; poor low-light focusing, Plastic tripod mount, no USB 2.0 High-speed
Summary: The Olympus FE-340 is the current mid-range model of the entry-level FE line of digital cameras from Olympus. The FE-340 is an 8 megapixel camera, with a 5x optical zoom, 2.7-inch LCD, and a sturdy, slim metal body.
Pros: Solid metal body with nice styling, Plenty of resolution in LCD, Nice lens, Easy to use
Cons: Average image quality, Average overall performance, Smeared flash shots, and noise/noise reduction in general
Summary: Olympus' new FE-340 is available in five metal, super-slim bodies (silver, red, blue, black and pink).

Excerpt: Bigger everything Olympus’s jump in zoom range gives you the bonus of a whopping 180mm telephoto as well as the moderate wide angle of 36mm. The big telephoto sucks in subjects from further away and makes shooting sport or taking candid shots of the kids much easier.
Conclusion: There are a number of points I like about the Olympus FE-340 digital camera. First up I was impressed by the quality of the photos I was able to produce with the camera. Next I liked the ease of use of the camera. I also found that the extra length of the zoom lens can come in handy.
Pros: Extra zoom on a pocket camera - simple and easy to use - overall picture quality
Conclusion: Corpo in metallo, raffinata ed elegante, la fotocamera compatta Olympus FE-340 è una buona rappresentante della famiglia Easy, con la sua estrema facilità d’uso e caratteristiche interessanti.
Pros: Prezzo; Face detection; Stabilizzatore; ZOOM OTTICO; Sesnsibilità
