Great Camera

Beka, Amazon
28 April 2012
  • Summary: I have had this camera for a couple years now and I love it. The only issue I had was that the memory card does not fit my laptop and I seemed to have misplaced the cord. I did however get a replacement usb cord through amazon. I wish they would make memory cards universal for all computer slots. It's all good though I have this camera in pinka dn i love it!! I have had iit for maybe 3-4 years and it is great.

Good, but not good enough.

Jason McRales, Amazon
18 December 2010
  • Summary: The Olympus FE-340 is a higher end beginner's digital camera. So I expect good image quality. You'll appreciate the image quality outisde, but not inside. My camera took forever to focus inside and it was off. Even though image quality is a large part of the camera, it's not everything. Shot to shot times are horrible, and shutter lag sucks. Switching scene modes is hard with the dial, and it takes at least 3 seconds for the camera to switch into any shooting mode.

Decent camera

BeGreen, Amazon
28 May 2010
  • Summary: This is a decent camera because it takes many great photos, but there are still come issues. For the most part, my pictures come out looking great.... except when I need to take indoor no-flash photos. I would take the photos with flash, sometimes the photo does not look good. So, I would try without flash and then I'm stuck with a very blurry photo! So, every non flash photo I take, almost all of them end up with blurriness.

Cool features but bad photo quality

Anaïs V., Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: I recently bought this camera after testing it in several different stores. I was drawn to the many different options avaiable to choose from, including the one that automatically takes the photo as soon as the subject smiles. The colours on the large LCD screen were beautiful and extremely close to the items I took pictures of. So I bought the camera, thinking I would be very happy with it.

Its OK

Keon B. Billings "Digital Rastaman", Amazon
30 December 2009
  • 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.

Decent Little Camera

jess, Amazon
30 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camera beacuse ti was reasonable priced and came in pink. It works pretty well, the pics are nice and the video comes out well too. The only thing I really disliked about it was that fact that it didn't take SD memory cards, so it's not compatible to view pics from other devices. The shutter speed isn't really that great either, I was hoping that buying a new camera would get me quicker shots, but it kind of fell short of my expectations there.

Panorama with 2G Olympus XD memory doesn't work

DuckBoyQuinn "DuckBoyQuinn", Amazon
6 January 2009
  • Summary: I'd give this a better rating, but I can't do Panorama Pictures with the new 2Gb Olympus brand XD card I bought with the camera. I put a 1Gb Olympus XD in and the Panorama option works. So, it looks like the camera has a firmware problem recognizing the newer 2Gb Olympus XD cards. Olympus will only allow Panorama pictures with "their" brand XD cards. So, I was extremely disappointed when I discovered this problem.

Una digitale giusto per l'essenziale

cricrocri25, Ciao
8 April 2014
  • Summary: Ciao! A proposito di macchine fotografiche, vi parlo anche di questa Olympus. La utilizziamo nella carrozzeria in cui lavoro per fare le foto a furgoni e semirimorchi sinistrati e danneggiati. Quindi poco ma spesso, diciamo quasi tutti i giorni. Non ricordo la marca che avevamo prima, comunque fatto sta che un bel giorno la povera malcapitata è stata casualmente appoggiata sul tetto di un semirimorchio...e lì c'è rimasta....chissà che brutta fine ha fatto!
  • Pros: Semplice ed essenziale
  • Cons: Dipende dall'uso per cui serve
