Summary: The wife uses this one, but I've heard complains for her that it is sometime slow to respond. she likes the size of it, and the color, but generally complain only about the speed. I find that the images are not always as sharp as they could be, and the colors are not always right depending on lighting. Otherwise, its a nice starter camera, or carry for convenience camera that will take better pictures than any phone will.
Excerpt: I bought the Olympus FE-340 in pink for my daughter and like it so much better than my own camera (which I paid 8 times more for). This camera has a nice size display and the only thing I would change about it would be to increase the optical zoom. Other than that it's a great camera that takes very clear photos and nice video too. I also like the size of this camera because it is small enough to take just about anywhere.
Excerpt: I bought this camera from Target about a year ago. I'm really very happy with it. It takes clear pictures and it's light weight. It also takes some pretty decent videos. I like that it came in pink and was still reasonably priced. It seems to be a pretty durable camera too because I'm not always the most careful person with my personal belongings, and this camera has taken quite a beating.
Excerpt: Before purchasing this camera, I asked my children to run up and down the isles while I snapped a shot of them in action. This camera did a great job at catching them on the run! It's only draw back is in low lighting. Though it has a candlelight setting, it needs to be used up close for the picture to come out well.
The Olympus FE-340 is an exceptional camera for the price.

Excerpt: The Olympus FE-340 is very easy to use and takes beautiful pictures. The size of the camera is perfect for a purse or pocket. It comes with a rechargeable battery which holds a charge for a considerable amount of time. A charger is also included. The videos are very clear and the zoom is extraordinary for such a small camera. Only problem I encountered was a shakiness when using the closest zoom setting. I would definitely recommend this camera to anyone.
Excerpt: First of all, I am am Olympus lover! I have had Olympus cameras for the last ten years. This camera is great for everday pictures. I have a one year old and it is small enough to keep it in my purse at all times, but powerful enough to take great pictures. I am a picture freak and I love this camera. I have had it for a few years now and probably need to upgrade, but there isn't anything wrong with it.
