Very disappointed

  • Summary: I don't understand the good reviews for this camera. My problem is the one described by others: photos look great on LCD, terrible once uploaded to the computer. My son's fourth birthday party photos were a disaster: the colors were blown out, kids blurry and the zoom created weird, shiny eyes on the children. The only photos that were even okay were close-ups when the children were posing and not moving at all.

Poor Quality = Short Life = Unhappy Customer

  • Summary: Purchased two for Christmas. One began to malfunction within the first 60 days. When I attempted to zoom, the lens would pulsate in and out a few times and then the camera would power down. It would often power down with the lens protruding from the camera. I returned it to Olympus, but they refused to repair or replace. Their assessment was the lens was impacted and impacts are not covered under warranty.

Olympus is a terrible company!!!

  • Summary: I had this item for two weeks and was kneeling on the floor taking a picture and the camera slipped out of my hands. It fell maybe a foot (remember, I was kneeling). When i picked it back up it would not turn on. We sent it bck to Olympus because we were well within warranty, and they sent us a letter back saying that since it was an "impact" issue, our warranty was null and void, but that they would be happy to repair it for us for $90. The camera cost us $175 new!

  • Summary: I think that cameras are bought so that I can take beautiful pics. I took pics with this camera and then uploaded the pics onto my pc... all I can say is that the picture quality is very DISSAPOINTING. I had a 4mg pixel nikon that I gave away before buying this but looking at the pics I took with my 4mp camera, the nikon wins by far. I dont write reviews normally but for this camera, stay away.

Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera

M.Fields, Rate it all!
13 September 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this product in July 2008 and have been trying to make it work ever since. I've got hundreds of vacation photos saved on the flash drive that I may never get to see. The camera refuses to communicate with any computer. Olympus tech support is only open during business hours when most of the world is at work which makes it useless to me. I've owned several Cannons in the past with no troubles. For some unknown reason I decided to give Olympus a try.

Not What I Thought would be.

  • Summary: I have owned several Olympus Products, most worked well, color was usually excellent, FE-340 breaks the mold. Someone else mentioned that photos come out pale, I agree, the general color quality is not too good, actually it is poor, not at all what Olympus usually does. This performance in the download to card is very slow, I am using a Fuji M512 card, works very well on Fuji or other Olympus cameras. I going to return this camera, it just is not acceptable.
