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. Reading on-line reviews and disappointments only verified my experience. I feel that this model may have production problems and the model is not perfected as a friend of mine experienced the same problem.
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. Took it on vacation instead of using my larger 5 year old Canon A80 and the results were disastrous. Most of the photos were blurry.
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. After we got there, we went to charge it, and the charger would work for a short time then die long before the battery was fully charged. We'd pull it out and replug it in again, and it would start to charge then promptly die again.
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. I tried to contact Olympus support to understand what I had to do to have my camera working properly. They were rude and never answered my question or my complaint. I got no help at all from them.
