Excerpt: I purchased this for my 9 year old daughter who LOVEs to take pics and video. She actually saved her allowance and I wanted to find her a good, but economical camera. She found it a bonus to get the crayons and storage box with the deal we found. And what is cool about the software included is that my daughter can take her own pictures and turn them into coloring pages. She's already made coloring books for her siblings!! And the price on these go up and down..
Excerpt: The Olympus FE-46 is a relativly new camera on the market, but it is a great value for the money. It is a twelve megapixel camera with a five times optical zoom. It has all the bells and whistles any novis camera user could ever want in a camera. You can zoom in, you can correct for red eye, it has face recognition technology just to name a few things. it is very user friendly and even knows when to or not to use the flash dependant upon the lighting conditions.
Excerpt: i like the camera how ever the nice sized screen and decent image quality don't make up for the drastic learning curve. it took us a while to figure out the settings and menu's.it would be nice to have a simple menu system.instead of craming in features that only a professional might ever need. and the square navigation button is perfect for your fingers if your 5 but mine are to big to easily use the button.
Summary: There have been some poor reviews on this camera, but for the price I paid (69.99), it's not a bad camera. Picture quality is decent, not as good in the dark, using the zoom at 5x without bright lighting means blurry pics. This camera is tough. I accidentally dropped it from an 80 foot high parking structure onto rocks in Vegas and I went to get it, hoping that the batteries and memory card could be salvaged. To my surprise the camera turned on and worked perfectly.
Summary: This `Olympus X-42' is a small attractive camera and incredible value for money. To find 12 mega pixels, 16 face recognition, 5X zoom and a 2.7 screen is impressive stuff, but when you factor in the low price it ends up being nothing short of outstanding. This takes AA batteries and whilst this makes it slightly thicker than other cameras with internal rechargeable batteries, I find it fits better in the hand this way; companies can make things so small they aren't...
Summary: seems good quality only annoying thing is that the xD cards are expensive beware and know what they are i suggest the micro adapter much cheaper solution otherwise not bad for $23(mine was pink but the price out does the color)
Summary: Wow people are bash'n this camera?? I think it's great for the money, I've had mine around 3 years and I still have no complaints a on line service via Olympus lets me edit all the pics and I have no regrets on this purchase!
Summary: I've owned this camera for quite some time now and I am very satisfied with it. It is very easy to use and takes very good pictures for a relatively inexpensive camera. The quality of the construction is what you would expect from Olympus. Very good value for the money.
Summary: This thing works great. I am happy with it, but the prices are coming down alot on Camera's everywhere. I just saw a 10 megapixel video camera that also can shoot single shots for $35 the other day. However, this in an Olympus. That says it. If you aren't ready to set the exposure, shutter, and so on - do not buy this camera. The others say it's pretty much point and shoot, then another says it gives poor quality.
