Summary: Lasted about two months and a sensor went out. Camera wouldn't show the picture screen. Contacted Olympus and was told they don't make that particular sensor any more so it couldn't be fixed. When it worked the pictures were fine.
Summary: I am a fan of Olympus products, and have owned 5 previous Olympus digital cameras. I was hoping this model would become my new primary photo machine. The price was right, I was attracted by the nifty BLUE color: But dissappointment set in after I took it out of the box. The two features that caused me to return the camera are: #1) the telephoto control is awkward, a pin head sized ball on the front of the camera.
Summary: I bought this camera a little over a year ago and liked it so much, I went back to the shop and bought another one for my daughter. However it is now 13.5 months later and the camera, one month out of warranty, stopped working. Specifically, the little button that turns on the power jammed and it will not turn on at all. The local Olympus dealership wants more than the camera cost originally to fix it - he says it is a short in the on off switch.
Summary: This camera was very pretty, however the pictures it took were not. There was a very long lag between pressing the button and the actualy shutter click. The pictures were not high quality, and almost every one had terrible red eye. I know some of that is my doing, however I was not impressed. This is a cheap camera.
Summary: The FE-340 is the third Olympus camera that I have purchased. Not that I am loyal to the Olympus brand, but I am used to the controls so I figured I can't go wrong. That was a mistake. This is the worst of the cameras I have bought. I love the re-chargeable battery, but that is about the extent of what is good about this camera. Pictures consistently come out blurry, no matter what mode is used.
Summary: I own an Olympus FE-230 which I recently gave away to my folks for taking pics of my baby niece. The FE-230 is light, sleek and extremely nice with the picture quality.I got hooked onto Olympus with this camera and decided to try the FE-340 which,as the model number suggests is a more evolved variety--or so I thought!
Summary: First, I'm disappointed in the camera and that's no fault of the seller. However, shortly after purchasing the camera I found out that I could have bought the same camera model for 25% less elsewhere. I also responded to a questionaire that the seller, Expo Eletronics, sent me to see if I was happy with my purchase. I told them the same thing that I said here and still have not received any response from them.
Summary: Bought this camera prioritizing the size and picture quality first of all. Own Kodak Easyshare z7590. Just needed a decent small camera for my wife. For short, Olympus fe340 is well organized especially for an amateur such as my wife, nice large LCD. However, there is one painful flaw about this one - the pictures come out morbidly pale. Used different functions, tried viewing them on 2 modern laptops, printed them out - can't help it.
Summary: Compré la cámara en España, y a los 4 años comenzó a fallar el Zoom, y por lo que puedo leer en todos los sitios, a todos les pasó lo mismo... qué respuestas da la compañía, no puede no hacerse responsable de un problema como este, que ya es de público conocimiento...
