Summary: I have an Olympus and love it, bought this for my daughter. It was awful. She had to return it twice. The pictures weren't good. Finally she just trashed it and bought a different brand. Very disappointed.
Summary: I don't know if we received a refurbished camera (even though it was advertised as new) but this camera did not function from day one. No matter how often we replaced the battery it said it was empty - the camera would turn off in the middle of taking a photo. The couple of photos we did manage to take were horrible quality. Not a good product. On the upside - the seller was great about letting us return it for a full refund. But buyer beware.
Excerpt: I've been using this camera for several days now and feel that It is an excellent P&S camera for the money.Used within the parameters that the camera was intended it produces excellent colored Pictures,quite the surprise, as it was bought as a travel substitute for my "good" camera.Easy to use,good wide and telephoto lens, consumes available AA batteries, and up to 8GB micro SD cards.More than enough for any trip I plan on taking.
Summary: The camera has a smaller preview screen which really does not matter because the pictures it takes are crystal clear and sharp when printed or displayed on a computer screen. And that is what counts to me. The memory is minimal so a card is a neccessity but they are not that expensive so for bang for your buck this is a good camera.
Summary: I bought this camera while on vacation. (My previous one died under mysterious circumstances and will be autopsied upon arriving home.) For now, while I am still away, I needed a basic camera that would use my existing Olympus camera accessories (xD cards, AA batteries, USB cable) and the FE-45 seems to fit the bill. At just a little over a hundred dollars, it's a nice bargain.
Olympus FE-45 Digital Camera - Functionally Superb
7 June 2009
Summary: Looking for a lot of bang for the buck in a small package?!? The Olympus FE-45 digital camera with 10 megapixel lens has many good quality features worth considering. Picture quality and clarity are comparable to any camera brand out there in the same megapixel range. Operates on two AA alkaline batteries that are available anywhere, can even use rechargeables!
