Summary: Buyer BEWARE on this camera. I only used this camera 7(SEVEN) times, one day i decide to use it and it did not turn on, power up. Thought it was the battery, CHARGED IT, still did not work, purchased new battery, still did not work.
Summary: After 6 months of light usage I can get 4 or 5 pix on 1 battery charge the flash fails or comes on when not needed. It is impossibe to contact the manufacturer. So much for my mothers day gift from my son. I will never buy an olympus camera, due to all of the problems with the camera.
Pretty to look at but the pictures it takes are bad.

Summary: Sorry to say I purchased this camera after exhaustive checking of reviews. I was looking for something small for vacation instead of lugging one of my pro systems. The size was great and I was drawn by the 5X optical zoom.
Summary: My husband and I received the Olympus fe-370 camera for Christmas in anticipation of our new baby this summer. The camera worked great the first time we charged the battery. Then we went on vacation and took the camera with us.
Summary: I would have liked to know what accessories were necessary to make the camera work properly. The way it is shipped it can take only eight pictures. The booklet with instructions is badly written and confusing.
Summary: My problem was not so much the product although it failed in only a few months of light use, it's what happened when I contacted Olympus to get the unit fixed. They sent me an email with return instructions saying to send it to Olympus America for repair.
